Tiger Woods Injured in Crash


Recommended Posts

Unfortunately Tiger’s got a long and difficult road ahead, even to get back to normal for the general population, let alone perform at the elite level. 
 

Shattered ankle potentially has some really difficult healing, as blood supply issues can relay cause some problems. Add a compound fracture and the probability of it being bilateral, it all adds up to a long and arduous rehabilitation, even if everything heals well.

Undoubtedly Tiger will have the best possible surgeons and rehab team available, but even with that it’s going to be tough.

Who is the guy and what did he say? 

he’s an LA area sports journalist that they had on. 

despite the sheriff’s department reporting no signs of impairment several times, this guy was on the air saying “well it’s inconceivable that this crash could happen. it was a clear, dry morning. cars don’t just flip off the road. just because they said no signs doesn’t rule out everything” 

he was just going out of his way to really tell the story of DUI no matter what was being reported by the police. 

i thought it was a really bad look for the golf channel

I believe he was the one that also stated that because Tiger is in the public eye “We have the RIGHT to know” when talking about the details about the crash.

correct! i knew i was forgetting some other gust of hot air that came out of his mouth. 

he went on, ad nauseam, that we have a right to answers because of tigers history and his stature.

Saw the statement from Tiger's team this morning - that he's awake and recovering from surgery. 

Also, stumbled across this article and have to say, I agree wholeheartedly.

Your comments and the previous post from TW's Team paints a pretty grim picture with respect to him ever being able to compete as he has in tour level golf again.  But, I will say that if anyone can climb this mountain and surprise us once again, it will be Tiger.  Keep in mind what Ben Hogan did... glass half full.

We don't know if the actual injuries and surgeries are similar, but if Alex Smith can come back and have Aaron Donald jump on his back for a piggy back ride and go on to play reasonably well.  Maybe Tiger will make it all the way back.  But that appears a long way off and certainly not the top priority right now.

 

Being a Cowboys fan, I have no love for the Washington Football team, however I prayed for Alex Smith, he is a great guy and did not deserver to have his careers end like that, I am glad he was able to come back this past season, and I hope that he can make an impact on the game going forward.

I am praying the same way for Tiger, I know a lot of people do not like him as a man, nor a golfer, however I do still hope to see him back at the course playing at a high level.

I too read the description of the injury and surgery and thought immediately of Alex Smith.  Smith required something like 18 months to be cleared to practice football, but his injury was significantly delayed by infection in his leg.  I heard a doctor on some radio show this morning (it might have been Breed's show on Sirius) who said that although infection is a significant concern in injuries like this, it still occurs relatively rarely.  So I will remain guardedly hopeful that Tiger doesn't experience this type of complication.  Even without any complications, between the leg AND the injuries to foot and ankle, it will be a long difficult recovery.  At this stage, my hope is that he can one day walk fairly normally.  Maybe in 6 months or so I'll start to hope for his return to golf.

It is amazing how much Tiger's self-destructive behavior and decisions over so many years has cost him. Yet he has made great comebacks before. This would be a tremendous part of his story if he could come back from this to win again.

There are plenty of places to post your speculations; this won't be one of them.

Why do you always have to be so reasonable?

I don't know if there was a football fan anywhere regardless of favorite team, that wasn't rooting for Alex Smith to have a successful comeback.  He truly is one of the classiest guys in the league and I was so happy for him to be able to get back on the field.   

Let's hope Tiger has the same sort of success.

I saw that on Twitter earlier.  Just a tremendous amount of good information.   He seems to be thinking positively that Tiger can make it back.  Seems like more depends on the ankle than the leg.

I'm not a Twitter-er, so this may be old news to many of you, but I found this to be really cool (St. Andrews).

If anyone has the mental fortitude to come back from something like this, it's Tiger.

But if this is truly the end, I'm grateful that I got to live through and witness him at his best. He changed golf forever and I think we're all better for having had him in our sport.

He's got a long road to recovery ahead of him whether he hits a competitive golf shot again or not. I can't help but feel for his kids. So much of their childhoods have been seeing their Father dealing with major injuries. I can't imagine what they're going through right now to have this happen so soon after yet another back surgery.
