Tiger Woods seen with walking boot, crutches on his golf course after car crash

Tiger Woods is back on his feet, sort of, after his terrifying car crash in Southern California earlier this year.

Woods, who has been recovering at home in Florida since the February crash left him with multiple leg injuries, shared a photo of him in a walking boot and using crutches on his golf course with his dog, Bugs, on Friday afternoon.

“My course is coming along faster than I am,” Woods wrote. “But it’s nice to have a faithful rehab partner, man’s best friend.”

The photo is the first he’s shared of himself since the crash. He has issued several statements and been in contact with others on the PGA Tour. He even congratulated Hideki Matsuyama after his historic win at the Masters.

Woods still recovering after car crash

Woods was driving early on Feb. 24 in Southern California on his way to a golf course when his SUV crashed along the side of the road. Woods, police said earlier this month, was driving between 82-87 miles per hour in a 45-mph zone at the time of the crash, and that his vehicle struck a tree at 75 mph.

He was taken to a hospital with severe injuries to his right leg, and was transferred to another Los Angeles-area hospital before returning to his Florida home weeks later.

Officials said there was no evidence of Woods being under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash, and no citation was issued. He reportedly has little to no memory of the crash, however, as he suffered multiple blows to the head during the crash.

The timeline for Woods’ recovery is not clear, and it’s unknown if or when the 82-time PGA Tour winner will be able to compete again.

Though it isn’t much, Friday’s photo of Woods moving around again is at least a promising sight.
