There was a point in time when, I wouldn’t say it was 50/50, but it was damn near there if I was going to walk out of that hospital with one leg. Once I (kept it), I wanted to test and see if I still had my hands. So even in the hospital, I would have (girlfriend Erica Herman) 과 (friend Rob McNamara) throw me something. Throw me anything,” Woods told Golf Digest in a story published Monday.

The recovery process was slow. He said he needed to change his mindset to get through the 2-3 시간 “of helleach day in rehab.

Woods started to make public appearances. He returned back to his Florida home in March to continue the recovery and in April posted a photo of himself standing upright with crutches and a walking boot.

It would only get better from there.

He posted a video showing him on a golf course and swinging a club earlier this month. It appeared to be the first visual evidence of him hitting a ball and swinging a club since the February crash. He still had the black compression sleeve on his right leg while he was on the course.
