Golf: Woods ‘driving at twice the speed limit’ before crash

Tiger Woods has been absent from the PGA Tour circuit for over a year, and his spell away from the course has allowed him to spend plenty of time at his £41million mansion in Florida.

Woods broke the golfing internet recently after he released a video on social media of him hitting golf balls for the first time since his horror car crash in Los Angeles earlier this year.

The 15-time major champion suffered severe injuries to his right leg following the high speed road accident in LA, as the 45-year-old revealed this week that amputation was ‘on the table’.

Following a fairly private eight months of rehabilitation Woods addressed the media ahead of this week’s Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, an event which the golf star hosts.

After his accident in February the 2019 Masters champion spent 12 weeks confined to a hospital bed, before finally returning to his luxury home where his recovery has continued via the help of his home gym, swimming pool and oxygen therapy room.

During Tuesday’s press conference Woods joked with the press that he didn’t realise how big his remarkable Florida home was until he had to get around on crutches.

The 45-year-old said: “I built a really nice house but I didn’t realise how big it was until you start putting crutches on. I am on the better side of it but still have a long way to go.”

As well as struggling on his crutches, Woods also discussed the difficulties he endured whilst being left bed ridden, commenting: “It’s been a lot of hard work.

“There were some really tough times, just laying there. I was in a hospital bed for three months.

“It’s hard to explain how difficult it’s been, to be immobile for three months. I was just looking forward to getting outside, that was a goal of mine.

“Eventually I got to a point where they could wheelchair me out and I could feel the sun, that was like a milestone.”

The 45-year-old has not featured on the PGA Tour since the 2020 Masters at Augusta in November of last year, but did give an all-important update on what his future plans would be, revealing he would ‘pick and choose’ his events.

Woods told Golf Digest: “I think something that is realistic is playing the tour one day—never full time, ever again—but pick and choose. Pick and choose a few events a year and you play around that.”
