Golf legend Tiger Woods returns to golf course for the first time after his horror car crash
Tiger Woods has returned to the golf course after being gravely injured in a vehicle crash in February. He had been out for almost nine months.
During the collision in California, Woods’ car exited the road at roughly 84-87 mph and overturned numerous times. He needed surgery for open fractures in his lower right leg, and his foot and ankle were also injured.
The 45-year-old former world number one was the only occupant in his vehicle and was wearing his seatbelt when the accident occurred on February 23. The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department said he was “lucky to be alive” following the incident.
The 15-time major winner used Twitter to keep supporters up to date on his progress. Woods posted a video to his 2.7 million Instagram followers with the simple caption: ‘Making progress,’ which has already received over 850,000 likes and nearly 9,000 comments.
