I’m Lucky To Be Alive’: Tiger Woods Grateful After Crash And Targeting Open

Posted by

Tiger Woods, sensibly, places a more value on nine lives than on 15 major championships. The golfer revealed the scope of his biggest concerns at a press appearance for the first time since the February automobile accident that left him wheelchair confined and fearful of having to have a leg amputated.

“I’m lucky to be alive but also still have the limb,” said Woods. “Those are two crucial things. I’m very grateful that someone upstairs was taking care of me, that I’m able to not only be here but also to walk without a prosthesis.”

It was “on the table” for Woods to have his right leg amputated. Instead, at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, a considerably bulked-up Woods stepped into the media center and spoke openly about his new normal. Without having any inclination to go into detail about what transpired in the single-car accident on a sunny California morning in February.

“All those answers have been answered in the [police] investigation,” he said. “So you can read about all that there in the post report.” Los Angeles police noted Woods driving at between 84 and 87mph in a 45mph zone but there is precious little by way of added detail.
