What is the latest on Tiger Woods condition after horror car accident?

06

TIGER WOODS unfortunately won’t have the chance to win back his Masters green jacket this year.

The Golf legend sustained serious leg injuries in a horror car accident back in February and it’s possible Woods may never play his beloved sport again.

But the Golf world has rallied around Woods, 45, as they want to see the superstar back on the course as soon as possible.

What is Tiger Woods’ current condition?

Woods injured both of his legs severely on February 23 when the car he was driving careered down a hillside in Los Angeles.

It’s been revealed that the cause of the crash has been determined, though the findings have yet to be released.

Woods had successful surgery on his legs to repair his grisly injuries.

Woods was released from hospital on March 16 and has been recovering at home since, though his exact current condition is unknown.

It’s expected that Woods will spend much of the year, however, rehabilitating his injuries.

Rival and friend Rory McIlroy went to visit Woods at his home recently and reported that Woods was in ‘decent spirits’.

“I spent a couple hours with him, which was nice,” McIlroy said.

“It was good to see him. It was good to see him in decent spirits. When you hear of these things and you look at the car and you see the crash, you think he’s going to be in a hospital bed for six months.

“But he was actually doing better than that. A few of us that live down in south Florida went to see him. I’m sure he appreciates that.

“Everyone would love to see him back out here again. I think myself, JT, Rickie [Fowler], DJ, Brooks [Koepka], all those guys down there, we all have a responsibility to try to keep his spirits up and keep him going and try to get him back out here.”

What else has been said about Tiger Woods?

Justin Thomas also visited Woods and said that the Golf icon texted him saying: “It’s starting to kick in now – wish I was there.”

Thomas added: “I went over and saw him a couple times last week. I try to go over whenever I’m home and see him.

“He’s bummed he’s not here playing practice rounds with us, and we hate it, too.”

McIlroy also spoke about how visiting Woods has made him extra-focussed for this year’s Masters, which the Northern Irishman has never won himself.

“I went over to Tiger’s house a few weeks ago to see him and in his family room he’s got his trophy cabinet,” explained McIlroy.

“It’s his 15 major trophies. I said, ‘That’s really cool. Where are all the [non-major trophies]?’ He said, ‘I don’t know.’ I go, ‘What?’ He said, ‘Yeah, my mum has some and a few are in the office and a few are wherever….’

“I was driving home and I was thinking, I mean; that’s all he cared about. All he cared about.

“So how easy must that have felt for him to win all the others? That was just always in my mind, he talked about [how] these are the four weeks that matter.”
