Describing his rehab process as ‘more painful than anything [he has] ever experienced,’ the pro-golfer is thankful for the support he got from people both inside and outside of golf.
AceShowbiz –Tiger Woods still doesn’t know if he’ll ever play professional golf again, three months after a horror car crash that almost claimed his life.
The sportsman suffered major injuries to his right leg in the February 23 accident, and required several complicated surgeries and a metal stabilizing rod.
He spent a month in the hospital before he was able to return home to Florida, where he has been rehabilitating since, and now, in his first full interview with Golf Digest magazine, Tiger admits he has no idea if he’ll swing a golf club again, insisting he’s too focused on his recovery to think that far ahead.
“This has been an entirely different animal,” Woods said. “I understand more of the rehab processes because of my past injuries, but this was more painful than anything I have ever experienced.”
“My physical therapy has been keeping me busy. I do my routines every day and am focused on my number one goal right now – walking on my own. [I’m] taking it one step at a time.”
But his rehab and recovery has been helped by all the well wishes from fans and friends, “I have had so much support from people both inside and outside of golf, which means so much to me and has helped tremendously,” he added.
Investigations following the crash determined Tiger was speeding when he lost control of a courtesy vehicle in Rancho Palos Verdes, California and crashed into a tree. Officials also determined he showed no signs of impairment.
