Tiger Woods Refuses To Talk About Near Career-Ending Car Wreck, Instructs The Public To Read 'The Police Report'
Avoiding the question! Tiger Woods refused to revisit his infamous car wreck earlier this year while speaking to reporters during his first press conference back since the crash.
"All those answers have been answered in the investigation," Woods told the media on Tuesday, November 30, ESPN reported. "So, you can read about all of that there, in the police report."
The golf phenom also insisted he didn’t remember the near career-ending crash. "I don't, no," he responded, when asked if he recalled any specifics from the horrific accident. "I'm very lucky in that way."
As OK! previously reported, the 45-year-old crashed his 2021 Genesis GV80 SUV into a ditch in Los Angeles on Tuesday, February 23, and suffered non-life-threatening injuries to his legs. The athlete was rushed to the hospital after the rollover crash that occurred at around 7 a.m. on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.
Speaking at the news conference in the Bahamas, Woods declared he’s “lucky to be alive and also have a limb.” After the accident, he initially thought doctors were going to have to amputate his right leg.
On Monday, Woods chatted with Golf Digest and revealed that although he may not return full-time, he's hoping to still be able to play. “It's an unfortunate reality," Woods spilled to the outlet. “But, it's my reality. And, I understand it, and I accept it.”

"I think something that is realistic is playing the Tour one day — never full-time ever again — but pick and choose, just like Mr. [Ben] Hogan did," the father-of-two explained, per the outlet. "You pick and choose a few events a year and you play around that. You practice around it, and you gear yourself up for it. I think that's how I'm going to have to play it from now on."
Despite the setback, Woods has begun playing golf again, hitting the green with his son Charlie and working on his technique. However, he admitted that although he is getting stronger everyday, a real comeback is highly unlikely.
"After my back fusion, for me, I had to prove it to myself — I had to climb Mount Everest one more time. I had to do it, and I did it. This time around, I don't think I'll have the body to climb Mount Everest," he candidly admitted, "and that's OK."
"But, I can participate in the game of golf. I can still, maybe if my leg gets good enough, maybe [I can] click off a tournament here or there," Woods reportedly continued. "But, as far as climbing the mountain again and getting all the way to the top, I don't think that's a realistic expectation of me."
