Golf legend Tiger Woods has shared a video of him hitting balls as he continues his recovery from the injuries he sustained in a car crash earlier this year.

Woods was lucky to escape with his life after slamming his SUV into a tree. He suffered serious damage to his legs, which has kept him away from the golf course since the day of the accident.

The American has come back from the gravest situations to prove that you never truly are down and out in life. It’s very much early days, but the signs are there he could do it again.

Tiger took to Twitter to share a video of him hitting balls downrange, and while his right leg is still in a sleeve for protection, he appears to have a decent amount of mobility.
