If it hadn’t been for that accident two years ago.
Tiger Woods (USA) said on social media on the 20th (Korean time), “I underwent right ankle surgery. The surgery was successfully completed and I am currently recovering and looking forward to rehabilitation.”
In February 2021, in a car accident, the anklebone of the right ankle was broken, and it is known that the operation was to treat post-traumatic inflammation. At the time, his right leg and ankle were fractured and seriously injured, and experts even talked about amputating his leg, but Woods returned to the gearco field.
However, many officials were skeptical about Woods playing. Caddy Joe LaCava said in an interview with the New York Post ahead of the Masters, “Woods is going through a lot of pain to compete.먹튀검증
Woods limped in his last Masters as well. The local media judged, “It is difficult to compete anymore.” Eventually, he withdrew before the final round. And he was on the operating table.
Due to the surgery, Woods is expected to be unable to compete in all of the major tournaments to be held this year. In addition to the Masters, the PGA Championship in May, the US Open in June, and the Open in July are scheduled, and it will take at least eight weeks for Woods to recover from surgery.
American Golf Digest said, “The surgery Woods underwent raised his leg up for the first few weeks, so he needs to control the swelling. If the stitches are removed, the motion restriction will be reduced, but he will have to wear a cast for 8 to 12 weeks. Or it may take longer.” “he explained. Within 8 to 12 weeks, the US Open and The Open overlap.
Yahoo Sports in the US also reported, “The Open, the last major tournament of the season, is about three months away. Woods has said every season that he doesn’t want to try anything more than a major tournament. His season can simply end.”
Woods has recorded 82 victories in his career on the PGA Tour, tying him with Sam Snead for the most victories. With just one more win, he could top the PGA Tour’s record. However, the aftermath of a car accident two years ago is too great.
