• Tiger Woods shared an update on his recovery Friday following his February car crash
  • The PGA Tour expressed its support to Woods
  • A former Masters champion said the 2020 Masters wasn't the same without the 15-time major champion

Tiger Woods has let the sporting world know that he’s doing well in his recovery.

On Friday, Woods finally shared a new photo of himself on Instagram, exactly two months after suffering multiple injuries from a car crash in California. In it, a smiling Woods could be seen standing with the help of crutches in a familiar place – a golf course.

“My course is coming along faster than I am. But it’s nice to have a faithful rehab partner, man’s best friend,” Woods wrote.

Among the first to react to Woods' positive update was the PGA Tour's official Instagram account. The world-renowned organization showed its support to the recovering five-time Masters champion by leaving a flexed biceps emoji on his post.

The Twitter page of “PGA Tour 2K” also reacted to his photo, writing, “You got this @TigerWoods.” See more reactions below:

Woods is currently recovering at his home in Jupiter, Florida. There is no specific timeframe yet as to when the 45-year-old will be fit to compete again.

According to Dr. Anish Mahajan, the chief medical officer and interim CEO of Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, Woods sustained serious leg and foot injuries that “required” surgery and some “screws and pins.”

“Mr. Woods suffered significant orthopedic injuries to his right lower extremity that were treated during emergency surgery by orthopedic trauma specialists at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, a level-1 trauma center,” Mahajan said in a statement posted on Woods' official Twitter account following the golf great's Feb. 23 crash.

“Comminuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones were stabilized by inserting a rod into the tibia,” he continued. “Additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle were stabilized with a combination of screws and pins. Trauma to the muscle and soft tissue of the leg required surgical release of the covering of the muscles to relieve pressure due to swelling.”

It can be recalled that the car crash saw Woods missing the 2021 Masters. The golf icon’s absence in the prestigious PGA Tour tournament made quite an impact as ratings and viewership drastically dropped.

Garnering an average rating of 5.5 and 9.45 million viewers, the fourth round of this year’s Masters became the second-lowest rated fourth round at Augusta since 1957, according to Sports Media Watch.

Woods has admitted in the past that one of the things he is always looking forward to in the Masters is the traditional “Masters Champions” dinner party.

With Woods out in this year’s celebration, former world No. 1 Fred Couples admitted that it was “not the same” without the five-time Masters champion.

“Thinking of my guy [Tiger Woods] during this week [Masters]. I’ll miss you tonight at dinner. Not the same without you,” the 1992 Masters champion tweeted.
