Tiger Woods leaves hospital and continues recovery at home following horror crash


“Happy to report that I am back home and continuing my recovery,” the golfing star said in a tweet posted Tuesday night.

“I am so grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement that I have received over the past few weeks.”

Woods was seriously injured in the crash on February 23, two days after the Genesis Invitational at Riviera.

He had to be pulled out through the windshield.

Woods had a lengthy surgery that day at Harbor-UCLA Medical Centre for shattered tibia and fibula bones of his lower right leg in multiple locations.

Those were stabilised with a rod in his tibia. Additional injuries to the bones in his foot and ankle required screws and pins.

Woods thanked the medical staff at both hospitals for taking care of him.

“I will be recovering at home and working on getting stronger every day,” Woods said in the statement.

A dozen or so players at the Workday Championship in Florida wore black trousers and red shirts — the Sunday colours of Woods for his record-tying 82 victories on the PGA Tour — in the final round.

Woods has stayed in touch through text messages, sending them to Bryson DeChambeau ahead of his Bay Hill victory and to Justin Thomas, one of his closest friends in golf, ahead of his victory in The Players Championship on Sunday.
