GOLF legend Tiger Woods has been on a professional hiatus throughout 2021 due to a horrific accident that almost took his life.
Woods has continued to recover and is taking certain steps to get back into the golf spotlight.
Is Tiger Woods playing golf again?
On December 18, 2021, Tiger Woods played at the 2021 PNC Championship in Orlando.
He starred alongside his 12-year-old son Charlie, one of two children he shares with ex-wife Elin Nordegren.
The duo finished second behind John Daly and his son in the championship.
He originally announced his return to the world of golf on Wednesday, December 8, 2021 via Twitter:
“Although it’s been a long and challenging year, I’m very excited to wrap it up by competing in the PNC Championship with my son Charlie,” Wald wrote.
The championship featured eminent golfers and their children competing in a two-day, 36-hole event.
“I’ve had to go through a lot of pain and although today I was able to walk into the room without crutches, my leg still hurts as I sit here. And my back hurts,” Woods told the press.
“I’m playing as a dad and I couldn’t be more excited and proud,” concluded Woods.
Why did Tiger Woods take a break?
In February 2021, Tiger Woods was involved in a horrific car accident from which he narrowly escaped.
The vehicle Woods was driving deteriorated while reaching a speed of 85 miles per hour.
After the car went off the road, it overturned several times, leaving the golf legend trapped inside.
After the impact, Woods had to be cut out of the vehicle and suffered a broken right leg, which almost never had to be amputated after the accident.
Will Tiger Woods take part in the 2022 Masters?
On April 7, 2022, Woods joined his fellow competitors in Augusta, Georgia to play at the Masters for the 24th time.
The native Californian has won a total of five Masters so far.
He returned to the course just 14 months after his accident.
Woods is expected to play a maximum of six events a year for the rest of his career — four majors and just one or two other games.
