Tiger Woods ‘recovering’ after follow-up surgery

Woods undergoes 2nd round of 'procedures' related to car crash upon moving to an L.A. hospital renowned for its sports rehab

Reported: By the Twitter account associated with Tiger Woods, that the golfer was “recovering and in good spirits” over the weekend after having been moved to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he underwent another round of “procedures” to treat his injuries from a car crash last week. Woods, 45, lost control of his SUV early Tuesday morning and ran off the road near Rolling Hills Estates, west of L.A. He incurred multiple breaks of his right leg and ankle, which required emergency surgery that involved a rod placed in his tibia and screws and pins inserted into his foot and ankle at Harbor UCLA Medical Center. Woods was visiting Los Angeles, his boyhood home, to host the PGA Tour’s recent Genesis Invitational, which benefits his foundation. After the tournament, which ended Feb. 21, Woods had other promotional duties in the area. Before the crash, Woods was recovering from a fifth back surgery, and his return to the PGA Tour had been undetermined. The latest incident leaves his golf future even more uncertain as he remains tied with the late Sam Snead for the all-time victory mark on the PGA Tour, at 82. Cedars-Sinai features a sports-medicine institute that is renowned for its rehabilitation program for injured athletes.
