Tiger Woods rips up golf course at £40m pad after crash injuries threaten career

Tiger Woods appears to have ripped up the golf course in the garden of his £40million Florida mansion.

An aerial photograph circulating on Twitter seemingly shows the greenway behind his luxury property has been stripped away, with only dirt seen from the intriguing shot.

It could be that Woods, who is currently recovering from the horror car crash he suffered back in February, is laying a fresh bed of grass on the course.

However, the reason behind his decision remains unknown.

Woods’ mansion boasts four holes along with a 100ft swimming pool, a tennis court and an outdoor basketball area.

The pad, which is split into two sections totalling a staggering 9,700-square-feet, also includes a gym, games room, cinema and oxygen therapy room.

It is located in Jupiter Island, north-east of Miami, where fellow golfers Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka and Rickie Fowler are also believed to own properties.

Some fear Woods may never set foot on a course ever again after suffering career-threatening injuries in the car crash earlier this year.

The golf icon was rushed to hospital after being involved in a single-car accident, which saw his vehicle hit a curb, strike a tree and smash through a sign before rolling over several times on a hillside.

    After a successful operation he returned to his Florida home last month, where some of his golfing neighbours have popped in to visit him.

    McIlroy was one of the colleagues that popped in to see Woods since his crash, with the Northern Irishman saying: “I spent a couple hours with him, which was nice.

    “It was good to see him in decent spirits. A few of us that live in south Florida went to see him.

    “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 there.”
