Tiger Woods opens up about injury in first interview since car crash – fr


Tiger Woods gave his first interview since being involved in a massive car crash in February, discussing his rehabilitation and physiotherapy with Golf Digest.

The golfing legend was seriously injured after the Genesis SUV he was driving swerved from the road about 26 miles southwest of downtown Los Angeles at around 7 a.m. on February 23. Woods suffered serious leg injuries as a result of the accident and is currently in rehab.

“I understand the rehabilitation process better because of my past injuries, but it has been more painful than anything I have ever experienced,” he told Golf Digest.

Woods did not comment when asked about his hopes of playing golf again.

“My physiotherapy kept me busy. I’m doing my routines every day and I’m focusing on my number one goal right now: walking alone. Take it one step at a time, ”he told Golf Digest.

The 45-year-old golfer was rushed to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center after the high-speed rollover crash. Woods suffered comminuted open fractures that affected his right tibia and fibula, which are the two long bones directly below the knee.

After the crash, investigators said there was no reason to believe Woods was driving the vehicle while impaired by alcohol or drugs, but instead crashed while driving at a “Dangerous speed for road conditions,” according to a police report. The 22-page California Highway Patrol crash-scene investigation report further stated that Woods was “acting in a manner consistent with someone suffering shock from having been involved in a major traffic collision, ”after the incident.

Woods’ right leg “has suffered traumatic injuries” and what “remains unclear is whether further procedures will be needed, or whether Woods can expect to regain full mobility and strength in his leg,” according to Golf Digest.
