Tiger Woods is back home. On February 23, the golfer was hospitalized in critical condition following a serious car accident. The 45-year-old athlete reportedly lost control of his vehicle while driving at high speed. He suffered from open fractures in his legs and ankles in particular, which had required several long operations, including one “on the lower part of his right leg and his ankle”.
After several days of convalescence, Tiger Woods was finally able to leave the hospital as he announced on Twitter in a press release on Wednesday, March 17: “I am happy to announce that I am back home where I will continue to recover. I am very grateful for all the support and encouragement I have received over the past few weeks “he wrote before thanking the nursing staff who took care of him:” Thank you to the amazing surgeons, doctors , nurses and all the teams at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and Cedars Sinai Medical Center. You took such good care of me and I cannot thank you enough for that “we read. Not yet completely out of the woods, it is now from his home that the champion will have to get back on his feet: “I will recover from home by working to become stronger day by day” he also indicated .

Will Tiger Woods be able to play golf again?
This time Tiger Woods was not far from death, the authorities who had gone to the scene of the accident to evacuate him from his badly damaged vehicle, had declared that he was “lucky to ‘to be alive”. Many now wonder about the rest of the golfer’s career, while some sports commentators say that it could well be “over”. Tiger Woods has indeed undergone a particularly invasive operation and the surgeons were forced to insert a metal rod into his leg. What possibly prevent him from one day regaining the level that made him a world star.
