The injury was caused when he was involved in a car crash in California in February. Since then, Woods has been concentrating on rehab to recover.
The 45-year-old legend was seen wearing a compression stocking on his right leg, yet he was playing with ease at the video. His injury caused fear and disappointment to golf fans that this might end his career.
Even his fellow PGA tourmate Max Homa tweeted on the video, saying he’s wondering if Woods and his crew were laughing before they posted the video, knowing the world will lose their minds to see that Woods is now recovering.
Before the unfortunate car accident, Woods had suffered from a career-threatening spine injury, where has to undergo a spinal fusion surgery in 2017. By the following year, he returned to competing and he eventually won his fifth Masters title.
According to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, overspeeding was the main cause of the accident as Woods was driving more than 45 mph limit. This led to Wood’s car flipping several times before it got completely shattered.
In April 2021, Woods was able to post in his Instagram account that he is recovering slowly from the accident and mentioned that his injury rehabilitation was more painful than anything that he’d experienced.
