The days of seeing Tiger Woods charging up the leaderboard may not yet be over.
Woods has been recovering from injuries sustained in a car crash in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. In the single-car crash, Woods suffered a shattered ankle and two leg fractures, one of which was a compound fracture and required surgery.
At 45 years old, after having already undergone a number of surgeries to repair his back, many have doubted Woods’ ability to play the game of golf again.
The U.S. captain for the Ryder Cup — Steve Stricker — isn’t shutting the door on Woods’ golf future.
“I’ve talked to Tiger a lot,” Stricker said. “His ongoing rehabilitation to try to get better and try to play golf again is going well. He’s progressing, he’s doing well, things are moving in the right direction.”
