Tiger Woods Opens About Recovery In First Interview Since Car Crash

Tiger Woods has provided fans a bit of insight into his recovery from a horrific car crash he endured in February. In his first interview since the car crash, he said the injuries he sustained were "more painful than anything [he has] have ever experienced.”

"This has been an entirely different animal,” Woods said about his physical therapy.

“I understand more of the rehab processes because of my past injuries, but this was more painful than anything I have ever experienced.”

While Woods has said that his recovery process is tough, he has been able to get through it in part because of the support he's received. In the months since the crash, fans have sent him messages, shared quotes of inspiration and much more.

“It’s been incredible,” Woods added.

“I have had so much support from people both inside and outside of golf which means so much to me and has helped tremendously.”

The challenge that his physical therapy has presented to him has kept him occupied. When asked if he planned to return to golf, he switched the subject up.

“My physical therapy has been keeping me busy," Woods explained.

"I do my routines every day and am focused on my No. 1 goal right now: walking on my own. Taking it one step at a time."

While Woods is not focused on playing golf in reality, he is excited about playing golf virtually. Shortly after his car crash, Woods signed a deal to immortalize his playing days in upcoming golf video games from 2K.

"I am looking forward to making my return to the video game landscape, and with 2K and HB Studios, I've found the right partners to make it happen. I'm honored to take part in this opportunity and look forward to sharing my expertise and insights as we build the future of golf video games together," Woods said.

Hopefully, there will be a day when Woods is playing while his video games are in store.
