Tiger Woods posts video on social media for first time since fatal car crash

Tiger Woods posted a video on his website Friday taking small shots at the ball, the first time he has posted a video on his social media accounts since his car accident in the early morning hours of Feb. 26.

The video shows Woods hitting a number of shots on the golf course, including a full swing at a five-iron. The video doesn’t show Woods hitting any of the shots like he usually does, but Woods has been rehabbing his back in Florida since undergoing back surgery less than a month after the crash in the Orlando suburb of Windermere.

“I’m doing more and more every day,” Woods told reporters last month in Florida. “I’m just trying to get my strength back and the range of motion back. It’s been a long road, but it’s gratifying to know I’m headed in the right direction. It’s a lot harder than people think. … I’m not there yet. I’m taking baby steps every day.”

If Woods continues his rehab, which began during the Masters and included rehabbing at home in Florida rather than going to the practice range, the 14-time major winner could be back competing in PGA Tour events as early as this year.

Woods has announced a handful of events on his schedule in the coming months: the Safeway Open, which he’s led over the last four years, and the Hero World Challenge on Dec. 4 in the Bahamas; the Genesis Open, an event he won in 2013 and 2015; and The Northern Trust, which he won in 2013 and ’14. Woods has won more PGA Tour events than any other golfer in history and recorded 14 career majors, but injuries have ended his seasons six times in the last nine years.
