What matters most is that Tiger Woods makes a complete recovery following his devastating single-car crash Tuesday morning in Los Angeles. Golf is way down the priority list for now.
Woods, 45, underwent emergency surgery after experiencing multiple leg injuries, and while he is reportedly “responsive,” the road back is expected to be long and challenging.
But while golf isn’t the priority today, Woods remains determined to make a comeback, People reported, citing a source close to Woods.
“He doesn’t want his career to end like this,” People quoted the source as saying. “So if there’s any way at all that he can continue playing golf, he will.”
Woods recently underwent a fifth back surgery, putting his status for competing at The Masters in April in doubt. He won The Masters in 2019.
“Undoubtedly, he has a long road to recovery,” wrote Dr. David Chao of OutKick. “I have no idea about specific leg injuries, but to require immediate surgery indicates an open (through skin) injury, very unstable fracture, joint dislocation or arterial injury. All of these would require extensive recovery that would likely preclude competitive golf in 2021.”
