The living golf legend was involved in a recent automobile crash. However, he is very fortunate to be breathing and currently conscious given the magnitude of the crash. This happened in Los Angeles where he was reported to be holding an event for his foundation.
How Lucky Is Tiger Wood?
For one, the renowned golfer did not come out of the car unscratched. As a matter of fact, he needed prompt medical attention judging from the surgery that has been performed on him.
Of late, we gathered that he sustained serious injuries to his leg and ankle bones. The medical practitioners even had to engage medical screws in getting things back to normalcy as much as they can. So, Tiger Woods is not having a luxurious time at the moment.
However, there is the need to be appreciative for life considering the nature of the accident and sophistication of the vehicle in dealing with such a crash. The SUV automobile was said to have been driving through a bad terrace before Tiger Wood lost control, hitting a tree and having the vehicle somersault multiple times off the road.
Also, the fact that the gold legend was the only one in the vehicle is great news. This is because the possibility of another passenger surviving the accident is a lot slimmer than that of Tiger Wood.
What does this Mean for Tiger Wood?
Ever since the infidelity and divorce saga that ensued years ago, Tiger Wood has had to deal with tons of challenges. However, he has come out on top with scars over and over again. The most recent was winning a major tournament against all odds.
Aside from this, it should be recalled that the golfer has gone through 5 back surgeries and has only hung on in the true spirit of sportsmanship.
However, this magnitude of injuries may be the reason Tiger Wood calls it a day with golfing. But even at that, he will still have left an indelible mark on the sport and world of athletics at large.
