The golfer, 45, shared on Tuesday that he was back home in Florida after undergoing emergency surgery for “significant orthopedic injuries to his right lower extremity” that he suffered in a single-vehicle rollover car crash in California last month.

 

 

“Tiger is happy to be back home,” a source tells PEOPLE of Woods, who spent almost three weeks in the hospital. “He is still recovering and has some pain, but he is in good spirits.”

“He is focused on his continued recovery. There is a rehabilitation plan that he is focused on. He knows he is very lucky to be alive,” the source adds. “He appreciates that he has access to great medical care. He has a great attitude and is just focused on his recovery.”

 

 

 

Woods was also “excited” to be reunited with his children, son Charlie Axel, 12, and daughter Sam Alexis, 13.

“He has spent some time with his kids,” the source says. “They stayed in touch while he was in the hospital, but he was excited to see them in person.”

In a statement shared on social media this week, Woods wrote that he was “happy to report that I am back home and continuing my recovery.”

 

“Thank you to the incredible surgeons, doctors, nurses and staff at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center,” the father of two added. “You have all taken such great care of me and I cannot thank you enough. I will be recovering at home and working on getting stronger every day.”

The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department told PEOPLE in a statement that the “investigation is ongoing and we do not have that information. As soon as we have more information, it will be released.”

 

 

Earlier this month, new details regarding the rollover crash surfaced in a Los Angeles County affidavit for a search warrant of his vehicle’s black box.

According to the documents obtained by CNN, Woods told police following the crash that he had no recollection of driving or how the accident happened. Woods was also unconscious at some point after the accident, according to the affidavit, although he was conscious when sheriff’s deputies arrived.

 

 

Deputy Johann Schloegl, the traffic collision investigator on the case, wrote in the affidavit that a witness who heard the crash noticed Woods was “unconscious and not responding to his questions” when they first approached the scene of the crash, according to CNN.

“My physical therapy has been keeping me busy…

Published

on

In February the golfing world stopped and held it’s breath after news began to filter through that Woods was involved in car crash.

Woods, a 15-time major champion, was driving close to double the 45mph speed limit when he crashed, the Los Angeles County’s sheriff has said.

The 45-year-old’s car left the road at approximately 84-87mph and flipped several times. Woods then had to be “extricated” from his Genesis GV80, a luxury SUV.

There was no evidence that he had been impaired by drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash, with sheriff Alex Villanueva saying the primary reason for the traffic collision was driving at an unsafe speed.

Woods’ car came to rest several hundred feet away from where he entered the dusty area, hitting a tree in the process and rolling several times.

It was estimated that the estimated speed of the first impact on Woods’ car was 87mph, while when it hit the tree he is said to have been travelling at 75mph.

There were no witnesses to the incident.

Woods then underwent a long surgical procedure on his lower right leg and ankle. Dr. Anish Mahajan said Woods suffered “significant orthopedic injuries”.

He suffered “commuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibule bones in the leg”.

A rod had to be inserted into the tibia, Dr Mahajan said in a statement.

Dr Mahajan added that screws and pins were also inserted in Woods’ foot and ankle.

It’s possible Woods suffered injuries we aren’t aware of that did not require immediate surgery.

What do we know about his recovery?

It’s going well, according to snippets we’ve heard here and there.

Steve Stricker claimed before the Ryder Cup Woods was in good spirits and said: “Things are moving in the right direction.”

Woods has posted pictures here and there but it still looks like he is in crutches.

He can place a little bit of weight on his right leg, however.

Woods texted the United States team to “step on their necks” as they cantered to a 19-9 Ryder Cup victory.

Most recently Woods posted images of him searching for old trophies.

Even the most optomistic doctor would suggest that after Woods’ crash it would take months for him to recover to play golf – let alone competitive golf.

Woods told GolfDigest’s Daniel Rapaport in May that his rehab was, “more painful than anything I have ever experienced”.

Clearly Woods was asked if he hoped to play golf again, but Woods declined to answer the question.

He did tell the publication: “My physical therapy has been keeping me busy. I do my routines every day and am focused on my No. 1 goal right now: walking on my own. Taking it one step at a time.”
