Tiger Woods is putting “substantial weight” on his surgically repaired leg, according to the golf great.
Tiger Woods has been spotted walking with his surgically repaired leg under his feet.
Tiger Woods, the golfing legend, was photographed this week putting “substantial weight” on his surgically repaired leg following a vacation to Los Angeles.
In February, Woods was admitted to the hospital after sustaining significant leg injuries in a car accident in Los Angeles.
The 15-time major champion was in town to host the Genesis Invitational at the Riviera Country Club, but was unable to compete due to a back problem.
The all-time top PGA Tour winner sustained “open fractures affecting the upper and lower of the tibia and fibula bones” as a result of the accident, necessitating significant surgery to ensure the 45-year-old could use his right leg correctly again.
As a result, Woods has been rarely seen in public since, though he did appear on crutches outside a Beverly Hills hotel this week, placing pressure to the leg that had undergone significant surgery.
Following former Ryder Cup teammate Rickie Fowler’s encouraging update on Woods’ rehabilitation last week, the photographs provide yet another positive update for golf fans across the world on the 45-year-progress. old’s

Five-time PGA Tour winner Fowler stated the 2019 Masters champion was working hard in his recuperation ahead of the 3M Open in Minneapolis.
“I know he’s been getting after it as far as rehab goes, and it takes up most of his day,” Fowler said.
“I know as obstinate as he is, and as much a golf nerd as we all are, he’s putting in the effort. I understand how difficult it has been. It’s been a long path thus far, and he still has a long road ahead of him, but he’s working hard.”
When watching the 2021 Masters together in April, after Fowler failed to secure a spot at Augusta for the first time in 11 years, the 2015 Players’ Championship winner said that the two spent time together during Woods’ rehab.
“[We were] both sad that we weren’t out there [at Augusta]playing,” the 32-year-old continued, “But he’s not lacking any fire in there right now, he never has.”
The 2019 was Woods’ last PGA Tour victory. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
