Tiger Woods back home after car crash
(Reuters) – Golfer Tiger Woods has returned home and is continuing his recovery after suffering severe leg injuries in a car accident last month.
“Happy to report that I am back home continuing my recovery,” said Woods on Twitter. “I will be recovering at home and working on getting stronger every day.”
The lone car crash left the 82-time PGA Tour winner with a fractured right leg and shattered ankle. Former U.S presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama were among those who offered support to Woods.
The Los Angeles Police Department said earlier this month that they were investigating data from the “black box” recorder inside the car driven by Woods. They concluded that the incident was an accident.
Woods was treated at Harbour-UCLA Medical Center as well as Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He was grateful and thankful for his medical team as well as his fans who wished him well.
“I am so grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement that I have received over the past few weeks,” said Woods.
The golf champion has endured numerous back and knee injuries throughout his career.
Woods is considered the greatest golfer of his generation, having won 15 major titles, and the only modern pro to win all four major golf titles in succession.
He capped one of the most remarkable comebacks in 2019, when he broke an 11-year Major drought to win his fifth Masters title.
