The Twitter handle of ‘Golf Injury Report ‘GIR’ posted the news of Woods‘ recovery and made every fan happy. According to the tweet, the 15-time major championship winner won’t need a cart to move around the golf course anymore. He feels strong enough to walk the course again after caddying for his son. Therefore, we won’t see Woods in the cart at Hero World Challenge, but only in his best form.

After his car crash on February 23, 2021, he returned to his home for recovery and was next seen in the Bahamas on December 5, 2021. He was practicing his range. We cannot deny that Woods was trying to get back into his golf form and practicing hard. However, December 18, 2021, was a happy day for all his fans.

He finished in second place after John Daly and his son. The Woods duo carded consecutive 11 birdies in the final round and left every fan’s heart flying. On March 9, 2022, the G.O.A.T. also became part of the Hall of Fame, and everyone felt he deserved it. The last tournament we saw him in was at the 150th Open Championship, where he, unfortunately, missed the cut.

What is his most recent achievement?

The latest achievement of the greatest golfer of all time was the PIP program of the PGA tour. However, he only played nine rounds in three major championships this season; they awarded him the PIP bonus of $15 million. Many golf fans criticized that he does not deserve the bonus as he did not play enough last season. However, authorities decided otherwise because even though he was not on the ground, he still made an impact.
