Tiger Woods described his recovery from a car crash that left him with career-threatening injuries as more painful than anything he’s been through and said he was focused on being able to walk on his own again.

Woods, speaking in a Golf Digest interview released Thursday, is no stranger to rehab procedures after having had multiple back and knee surgeries, but admitted his latest recovery was unlike any he had. suffered previously.

“It was a completely different animal”, Woods, 45, said in the interview released Thursday. “I understand the rehabilitation process better because of my past injuries, but it has been more painful than anything I have ever experienced. “

Woods was driving over the speed limit in February when he lost control of his vehicle, which crossed oncoming traffic lanes before crashing into trees by the side of a road outside Los Angeles.

The 15-time grand champion, whose accident resulted in a three-week hospital stay, posted a photo on Instagram last month that showed him smiling, on crutches and in a walking boot.

Asked about his hopes of playing golf again, Woods said he was focusing on rehab at his South Florida home.

“My physiotherapy kept me busy,” said Woods, the most successful golfer of his generation. “I’m doing my routines every day and I’m focused on my # 1 goal right now: walking alone. Take one step at a time.
