Tiger Woods Makes First Comments Since Terrifying Crash

NORTON, MA-SEP 1: Tiger Woods tees off the fourth hole during the third round at the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston on September 1, 2013 in Norton, Massachusetts.


Tiger Woods has broken his silence.

The golf star has been recovering from serious injuries suffered in a single-car accident in late February following surgery. Until now, we have only heard statements from Woods’ team, but that changed over the weekend during the WCG-Workday Championship.

A handful of golfers — including Tony Finau, Rory McIlroy, Patrick Reed, and Jason Day — honored Woods by wearing his traditional Sunday outfit of a red shirt and black pants and Tiger took notice.

The 15-time major champion took to social media to share his appreciation for the gesture.

“It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the tv and saw all the red shirts,” the 45-year-old Woods wrote. “To every golfer and every fan, you are truly helping me get through this tough time.”

Woods, who is currently recovering at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, “suffered comminuted open fractures in his right leg.”

That means the bone was fractured in multiple places and broke through the skin. As a result, doctors used a rod and screws to stabilize his leg.

Woods also suffered injuries to his left leg.

We continue to wish Tiger a full and speedy recovery and hope that he will be able to resume his golf career once he is fully healed.
