Tiger Woods Admits His Leg Looks 'Different' One Year After Horrific Car Crash
Tiger Woods has been on the road to recovery.
During a press conference at the Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles on Wednesday, February 16, ahead of the start of the Genesis Invitational, the pro golfer, 46, was asked about how he has been healing from his injuries sustained from his horrific rollover car crash that took place one year ago.
"It's altered," Woods told the reporter while sitting next to APGA member Aaron Beverly. "My right leg does not look like my left, let's put it that way."
With that being said, the Presidential Medal of Freedom winner emphasized once again that he would not be partaking in any PGA tour anytime soon due to his physicality. "I wish I could tell you when I'm playing again," Woods told the crowded press room.
"I want to know, but I don't," he continued. "My golf activity has been very limited. I can chip and putt really well and hit short irons very well, but I haven't done any long stuff seriously. I'm still working. Like at the PNC, I'm still working on the walking part."
Following the tragic crash that took place on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes in Southern California last February, the all star athlete suffered significant orthopedic injuries to his right leg including fractures to his tibia and fibula bones.
Woods rolled after his car struck a sign in the center divider and cut through a tree before landing on the side of the road.
Despite not being able to return to the game, the world record holder has made strides in getting better little by little. "I can walk on a treadmill all day, that's easy," he explained.
"That's just straight, there's no bumps in the road. But walking on a golf course where there's undulations, I have a long way to go," Woods revealed.
Last year, the PGA star made clear for the first time that he would not be in shape to compete on the tour. "I'll put it to you this way, as far as playing at the Tour level, I don't know when that's going to happen," he said at the time. via People. "Now, I'll play a round here or there, a little hit and giggle, I can do something like that."
