Earlier this week golf legend, Tiger Woods, was spotted at a junior tournament in Florida earlier this week as he helped his son warm up and prepare for the event on the driving range. Though Woods was still wearing a compression sleeve on his right leg, I’m sure to provide some cover for the scars or maybe a bit of extra support, it looks like Tiger’s one step closer to making yet another triumphant return from injury to the game of golf.
Since his devastating car accident and resulting leg injury back in February very little of Woods has been seen in public aside from a few pictures of him with a boot and crutches. Seeing the most polarizing player in golf walking on his own is exciting considering how many major injuries he’s been through, combined with his age at 45 years and counting.
Is Tiger close to beginning his training to get back on the tour? According to sources close to Tiger he has a timeline in his head but hasn’t solidified anything due to delays in his healing process. However, it seems like the odds are more in favor that we will in fact once again see Tiger Woods compete at the PGA Tour level in the near future. When that future will be has yet to be set in stone, but a 2022 Tiger comeback might be a realistic possibility.
He’s got a timeframe in his head, but he’s not really putting that out there; he knows when he wants to return, and he’s going to make it happen. He says even if he’s not at 100%, he knows how important it is to get back out there and compete. That’s his goal. – PEOPLE Magazine Source
