We learned earlier this week that Tiger Woods, the golfing hero, was in a serious car accident and he has been hospitalized ever since. Now, a source close to Woods has come forward to suggest that as he recovers from this, the 45-year-old athlete will have some very serious choices to make in the coming weeks.
The source said to People Magazine, “He does not want his career to end like this.” “So if there’s any chance he can continue to play golf at all, he will.”

The source told People Magazine, “He does not want his career to end like this.” “So if there is any chance he can continue to play golf at all, he will.”
The source went on to say that Woods is’ upset’ by this setback, adding that before the accident, after experiencing pain following the December PNC Championship, he had undergone back surgery to remove a disc fragment pinching his nerve.
The source said, “He wanted 2021 to be the year of his return.” “That’s clearly not going to happen now. And for him, it is disappointing.
The insider claims Woods will bounce back, considering the severity of the accident.
“This is a huge setback and he knows it’s a tremendous setback,” the source said, “but in the past, he has faced challenges and feels he can do it again.”
This comes after Woods’ team said in a statement obtained by Entertainment Tonight that on his lower right leg and arm, the athlete has undergone a long surgical procedure.
Anish Mahajan, MD, Chief Medical Officer & Interim CEO at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, said, “Mr. Woods sustained severe orthopedic injuries to his right lower extremity that were handled during emergency surgery by orthopedic trauma specialists at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, a level 1 trauma center.”
Comminuted open fractures were reinforced by inserting a rod into the tibia, affecting both the upper and lower parts of the tibia and fibula bones. A combination of screws and pins stabilized further fractures to the bones of the foot and ankle,” Mahajan added. The damage to the muscle and the soft tissue of the leg required the surgical release of the muscle covering.
The team of Woods added that he is awake and alert and that in the hospital he is presently recovering. They finished by thanking Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, and the Fire Department doctors and hospital employees. “At this moment, there are no more updates and we continue to thank you for your good wishes and privacy for him and his family,”
