One swing, two words and three seconds of video footage was all it took from Tiger Woods to get everyone talking about his future on the golf course.
Woods had not made a public comment about the injuries from his February 23 car accident in Los Angeles since May, and he didn’t have a lot to offer on Twitter on Sunday (Monday AEDT).
“Making progress,” was all he said, accompanied by a video of him swinging a wedge.
Woods was wearing a black compression sleeve on his right leg, with a large bucket half-filled with golf balls on a practice range. He also had a launch monitor behind him that measures metrics such as distance and ball speed.
Woods was recovering from another back procedure at the start of the year when his SUV fell down a steep hill on a road in the Los Angeles suburbs. Doctors said he shattered tibia and fibula bones in his right leg in multiple locations.
In an interview published on May 27 in Golf Digest, Woods described the rehabilitation as “more painful than anything I have ever experienced”. He said his top priority was “walking on my own”.
He took care of that, with videos on social media in the last month showing him walking on golf courses during junior events.
Woods has not played since the PNC Championship with his son, Charlie, last December. His last full tournament was the Masters in November, 2020.
Woods has had 10 surgeries — four on his left knee, five on his lower back and the most recent for the injuries from the car accident in February.
He won a third US Open in 2008 while competing on shredded ligaments in his left knee and a double stress fracture, and he returned from fusion surgery on his lower spine in 2017 by winning a fifth Masters in 2019.
