“Happy to report that I am back home and continuing my recovery,” said Woods.
“I am so grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement that I have received over the past few weeks.”
Woods was critically injured in a single car crash on February 23rd on the way to filming segments for his regular GolfTV appearances. The 15-time major champ suffered multiple injuries to bones in his right leg along with those in his foot and ankle.
“Thank you to the incredible surgeons, doctors, nurses and staff at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. You have all taken such great care of me and I cannot thank you enough.”
“I will be recovering at home and working on getting stronger every day,” said Woods.
Experts suggest that Woods is looking at months of physical therapy just to be able to walk properly again let alone be fit enough to get back on Tour.
However, we all know the normal rules don’t apply when it comes to Tiger Woods with the former long-time World No.1 defying the odds at the 2019 Masters to claim his 15th major title following multiple rounds of back, leg and knee surgeries.
