Two months after his harrowing single-vehicle rollover car crash in California, the golfing legend Tiger Woods is trying to stay positive as he looks to the future while also continuing his recovery.
“Tiger is happy to be back home,” a source told People Magazine this week, referring to the fact that Woods has returned to his home in Jupiter, Florida after undergoing emergency surgery for “significant orthopedic injuries to his right lower extremity” after his crash.
“He is focused on his continued recovery,” the insider continued. “There is a rehabilitation plan in place.”
“He has his down moments but is doing everything he can to heal,” a second source said. “He wants go back on tour at some point. He is eager to get back into shape.”
Early in the morning of February 23, Woods was driving downhill on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes in California when his vehicle struck a sign in the center divider. It then sheared through a tree and landed in the brush alongside the road with major damage, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD).
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva spoke out last week to say that the cause of Woods’ accident “has been determined, the investigation has concluded,” but the findings will not be revealed to the public at the golfer’s request.
“We have reached out to Tiger Woods and his personnel. … There’s some privacy issues on releasing information on the investigation so we’re going to ask them if they waive the privacy and then we will be able to do a full release on all the information regarding the accident,” Villanueva said. “We can’t release it without the people involved in the collision.”
Another source said that Woods isn’t paying attention to any of the speculation about what may have caused his crash.
“He’s not being charged with anything, and his focus is on healing and recovery, not obsessing about what people guess happened that morning,” the insider said. “He has bigger things to think about.”
Villanueva had previously said that it is unlikely that any charges will be filed in relation to this crash. We wish Woods a speedy recovery, and we hope to see him golfing again soon.
