Golf star Tiger Woods underwent surgery on his legs this week after a rollover car crash in California left him with serious injuries on Tuesday. On Saturday, we received a little more information about how long it could take him to recover.
According to a doctor and injury analyst for Fox Sports, Woods is expected to be rehabilitating for eight-to-12 months. He could be back sooner if he doesn't need additional surgery.
“I expect Tiger to be rehabilitating from 8 - 12 months, but could be back much sooner if he doesn’t need additional surgery. If the healing process goes as planned, we will see Tiger back on the course.”@sportsdocmatt provides insight on Tiger Woods' leg injuries ⬇️ pic.twitter.com/SjUovZDRMe— FOX Sports (@FOXSports) February 27, 2021
Woods had a rod, pins and screws inserted into his leg at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center before being transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for ongoing orthopedic rehabilitation.
The 45-year-old is "in good spirits," according to a statement released by his official Twitter account on Friday. It's unclear if he'll return to golf.
