Back in training, Tiger Woods came close to losing a leg at the start of the year.
This Monday in the columns of Golf Digest, Tiger Woods spoke for the first time since his serious traffic accident on February 23 in the suburbs of Los Angeles. Seriously hit in the right leg, the greens superstar has not resumed competition since. He resumed his personal training last week, however.
“There was a time when the possibility that I would come out of the hospital on one leg existed. I think a realistic thing is to imagine coming back to the circuit and participating in a few tournaments a year. Train for it, and motivate yourself for it. I think that’s how I should look at my career now. It’s an unfortunate reality, but it’s my reality, and I accept it. I don’t have to play against the best players in the world to have a good life. After my back operations (between 2014 and 2017), I had to climb Everest once more. I did it. But this time, I don’t think my body is able to do it again, and that’s okay. I can still be a golf player, if my leg allows me ”, said Tiger Woods.
