Tiger Woods recounts the moment when his leg was almost amputated

Tiger Woods has lived and lives a life full of ups and downs. The American golf legend adds as many triumphs as disappointments in his personal and professional life and after his car accident in February, the latter is clearly prevailing over the former. In an interview for the publication Golf Digest, Tiger acknowledges that it will cost him 100% to return.

Return in conditions

“I think the most realistic thing is to play a PGA Tour tournament one day, but never full time again. I will have to choose. It is an unfortunate reality, but it is my reality. I understand and accept it.”

Almost lost his leg

“There was a time when, I wouldn’t say fifty percent, but he was fucking close to leaving the hospital with only one leg.”

No pressure, according to him

“After my back surgery in 2017 it was like I had to climb Everest one more time. I had to do it and I did it. This time I don’t think I have the body to climb it anymore and that’s fine. I can participate in golf and, if my leg is good enough, maybe I can play a tournament here or there. But going up the mountain again I don’t think that’s a realistic expectation for me. “

Patience and work

“I continue to progress. Rehabilitation is tough and I still have a long way to go. Patience is the key to a recovery as complex as mine and I know that is easy to say but difficult to do.”
