Tiger Woods, who was trying to attend the 4 major tournaments, ‘needs boots and casts for up to 3 months of treatment’
Tiger Woods (USA), the emperor of golf, had ankle surgery, making it difficult for him to participate in major tournaments this year.
Woods said on his social media on the 20th, “Early today, 스포츠토토I underwent surgery to relieve post-traumatic inflammation of a fractured ankle sustained in a car accident in the past. It was performed by Dr. Martin O’Malley of the HSS Sports Medicine Institute in New York City, and the operation is said to be a success. He is currently recovering and looking forward to his rehabilitation schedule.” Woods was discharged immediately after surgery and moved to his home in Jupiter, Florida, where he is receiving treatment.
When Woods played in the Masters two weeks ago, he severely limped his leg and often looked in pain, and eventually withdrew from the remaining matches the next day after the third round match was postponed, raising concerns from fans.
Woods’ manager, Mark Steinberg, said, “Woods is resting and will begin rehabilitation soon.
U.S. golf media reported that Woods would normally need a recovery period of 8 to 12 weeks, citing the views of ankle injury-related medical sites and experts. Golfweek said, “Recovery from surgery like Woods requires wearing boots or a cast for up to three months.”
As a result, Woods’ participation in the remaining major tournaments this year has become uncertain. It is certain that he will miss the PGA Championship in May and the US Open in June, and it will be difficult for him to play at the season’s final major, The Open Championship, which will be held three months later.
In February 2021, Woods suffered a serious car accident in which an SUV he was driving on the outskirts of Los Angeles, California, USA crashed on the road and overturned. At that time, Woods, who barely saved his life and escaped the crisis of having his right leg amputated, received superhuman rehabilitation treatment for about 9 months and made a miraculous comeback at the Masters last year. Woods went beyond participating in three major tournaments last year and planned to participate in major tournaments including four major tournaments this year, but after participating in the Genesis Championship and Masters last February, he faced a variable called surgery.
