Tiger Woods has shared the first picture of himself since his high-speed car crash earlier this year, which left him nursing leg injuries.
The American golfer sharedÂ a picture of himself with crutches on hisÂ verified Instagram accountÂ on Friday saying his recovery was, âcoming along fasterâ.
The 82-time PGA Tour champ looked in good spirits as he stood next to his dog.
âMy course is coming along faster than I am. But itâs nice to have a faithful rehab partner, manâs best friend,â he posted.
The 15-time major champion underwent surgery on open fractures to his lower right leg and further injuries to his foot and ankle following the February 23 crash.
During the accident Woodsâ Genesis SUV hit a âWelcome to Rolling Hills Estatesâ sign, crossed a center divider, and traveled more than 150 feet across the shoulder of the road before coming to a stop on the driverâs side, according to aÂ Los Angeles County affidavit.
According to a 22-page collision report, Woods mistakenly thoughtÂ he was in the state of Florida when he was interviewed by a sheriffâs deputyÂ at a Los Angeles area hospital after he crashed his vehicle in February.
Earlier this month, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said theÂ main causes of the crashÂ were speed and Woodsâ inability to negotiate a curve.
The sheriffâs department however did not try to examine Woodsâ blood for evidence of medication because there wasnât a strong enough reason for it, according to deputies.
Woods returned to his home in Florida to continue with his rehabilitation after a month in hospital.
Woods played only three events in the 2020-21 PGA Tour season, most recently the 2020 Masters that was delayed until November, as he was recovering from back surgery.
Woods was the first black winner of the Masters in 1997.
