And Golf is Ecstatic ….
Woods’s last tournament was the pandemic-delayed 2020 Masters, where he tied for 38th and which was held in November of that year. A little more than three months later, he suffered comminuted open fractures to the tibia and fibula in his right leg after his car careened off a road in Southern California, with both bones breaking into at least three pieces and piercing the skin. Woods, 46, also suffered foot and ankle injuries and has said that doctors at one point considered amputation.
He said Tuesday that he still has pain in his leg “each and every day.”
The 508 days between tournaments will the longest layoff of Woods’s career, topping the 466-day hiatus he took between August 2015 and December 2016 to deal with back problems. Woods then wouldn’t begin competing in earnest again until the 2017-18 PGA Tour season, when he scored eight top 10 finishes and a memorable win at the season-ending Tour Championship. He followed that up with his fifth Masters victory in April 2019, which also stands as his most recent win….
Woods IS a patched up human being that hurts everyday and was NOT doing too good before he ran the car off the road that wrecked his right leg….
