On Friday evening, Tiger Woods posted a photo of himself on his Instagram account for the first time since his life-threatening car accident in California in February.
In the photo, Woods is standing next to his dog with the help of crutches. Woods smiles and wears a boot on the lower right leg.
“My course is progressing faster than me,” said Woods in the caption. “But it’s nice to have a loyal rehab partner, man’s best friend.” A Woods-sponsored golf and entertainment facility, PopStroke, will open to the public on Saturday in Fort Myers, Florida.
On February 23, Woods in Los Angeles County was in a single car accident that resulted in open fractures in the upper and lower portions of his right leg and additional injuries to the foot and ankle that required the insertion of screws and pins. In April, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department announced that Woods’ crash was caused by driving at an unsafe speed and that he was traveling 75 mph when his vehicle hit a tree.
