‘Expect Him to Play Again’- Jack Nicklaus Optimistic About Tiger Woods’ Return to Golf

Published

on

Tiger Woods is still recovering from his solo car crash, which happened in February 2020. And since then, there haven’t been many updates about him. The first update came in May, where he said this is one of the most painful things he has ever experienced. Moreover, he also mentioned that, currently, his primary goal is to walk on his own.

But it’s been around three months now, and there isn’t any update about his recovery. The 15-time major championship winner suffered open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones. The doctors stabilized these injuries by inserting a rod into the tibia during surgery. Moreover, he also suffered additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle, and the doctors stabilized it with pins and screws.

But the question that remains in every golf fan’s mind is that, will we see Tiger teeing up again? However, nobody seems to have a sure-shot answer to this question. The legendary Jack Nicklaus has given out an optimistic opinion or prediction about the same.

“I do expect him to play again,” says Jack on Tiger Woods’ return to golf

Recently, when asked about Tiger Woods and what does he think of Tiger’s comeback to golf, this is what Nicklaus said, according to the Washington Post: “I know Tiger,” he said. “What he did at Torrey Pines [winning the 2008 U.S. Open] on a broken leg, what does that tell you? He’ll still be able to slap it around, and if he can putt, he’ll be all right. I don’t know if he can reach his old level, but I do expect him to play again.”

Jack Nicklaus believes that Tiger Woods will make a comeback on the PGA Tour. Moreover, he also revealed that he hasn’t spoken with Tiger for months now. But it is clear that he wants to see Tiger Woods back on the competitive golf just like every one of us.

“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.”
