The golf icon was apparently driving at double the speed limit and was not under the influence of alcohol. Following that, he underwent several surgeries on his legs and ankles.

Woods has been recovering since. Just last week, we saw pictures of him supporting his son in a golf tournament in Florida. The 15 times major winner looked better than he had all year, despite a support on his knee.

Tiger Woods is in ‘great spirits’ regarding his recovery

As Woods was seen on the course last week, an insider told the magazine, “Tiger has made a remarkable recovery in the past few months, but it’s even more significant lately. It’s like every day he can do more, he can handle more, the pain is less and he’s feeling better.”

“He says that the pain is very manageable now,” explains the source. “For the first couple months, he’d just be sitting at home with his leg up, and it would be throbbing and he’d be in so much pain. Now he still has pain, but it’s nothing like what he dealt with before. He’s feeling strong and healthy and optimistic that he’ll be able to return to tour.”

“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,” says the source. “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.”
