Reports provide a positive update about Tiger Woods

Recently, Tiger was seen at a golf course in Florida where his son is competing in a junior event. And the huge positive update is that Tiger Woods accompanied his son on the range and even had a walk on the greens without any assistance. The 45-year-old also had an interaction with Justin Thomas‘ dad, Mike Thomas. 

However, another thing to note is that Tiger can walk on his own without crutches or other support, but with a limp. Moreover, he was still wearing a sleeve on his injured right leg. But with the kind of progress he has shown, we might see him playing golf once again in the final few events of the 2021-22 PGA Tour season.

Furthermore, there is still no official confirmation from Tiger’s end about his recovery. However, looking at his current condition, it looks like the majority of his rehab has been complete. Although, the 15-time major championship winner needs to get clearance from doctors, and hence he would still need a few months before swinging a club on a golf course or range.
