Tiger Woods returns home and recovers from a car accident

MARCH 16: Golfer Tiger Woods said Tuesday he is returning home and continues recovery after suffering serious leg injuries in a car accident last month.

“I’ll recover at home and work to get stronger every day.”

A car accident left the PGA Tour winner, 82 times, fractured in his right leg and broken ankle and shocked the sports world and beyond, with former US President Donald Trump and Barack Obama among those who offered support.

Woods, who was treated at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center as well as Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, thanked his medical team and fans for their wishes.

“I am very grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement I have received over the past few weeks,” Woods said.

Woods, who has suffered numerous back and knee injuries throughout his career, is considered the best golfer of his generation, having won 15 major titles and the only modern professional to have won the big four. golf titles successively.

He ended one of the most notable comebacks of all professional sports in 2019, when he broke a major eleven-year drought to win his fifth Masters title.

The Los Angeles police department said earlier this month that it was investigating data from the “black box” recorder inside the car driven by Woods, but said the incident was an accident. – Reuters
