Tiger Woods describes recovery from life-threatening car accident as the toughest of Career


Tiger Woods has described his recovery from February’s life-threatening car accident as the toughest of his career and has admitted he feels lucky to be alive.

Woods held a press conference ahead of the Hero World Challenge, the first time he has addressed the media since sustaining serious injuries to his lower right leg, foot and ankle following his crash on February 23.

The 15-time major champion had undergone surgery 10 times prior to the incident in Los Angeles and was hospitalised for three weeks after the crash before continuing his rehabilitation at home.

Woods revealed that amputation of his right leg “was on the table” due to the severity of his latest injuries, with the former world No 1 also opening up about the struggles he faced during the early stages of his recovery.
