Golfer Tiger Woods said Tuesday he was back home and continuing to recover after sustaining serious leg injuries in a car crash last month.
“I’m happy to announce that I’m back home and continuing my recovery,” said the 45-year-old golfer on Twitter. “I’ll take a rest at home and work to get stronger every day.”
The car crash left the 82-time PGA Tour winner with a broken right leg and ankle and stunned the world of sport and beyond, with former US Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama among those offering their support.

Woods, who was treated at both Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, thanked his medical team and fans for their good wishes.
“I’m so grateful for the barrage of support and encouragement I’ve received over the past few weeks,” said Woods.
Woods, who has suffered numerous back and knee injuries in the course of his career, is considered the greatest golfer of his generation with 15 major titles and the only modern professional to have won all four major golf titles in a row.
He crowned one of the most notable comebacks in all of professional sport in 2019 when he broke an 11-year dry spell to win his fifth Masters title.
Los Angeles police said earlier this month that they are investigating data from the “black box” recorder inside the car Woods drives, but said the incident was an accident.
