Tiger Woods , is considered by the golfing community to be one of golf’s greatest legends. The legend has fallen from his throne as injuries have affected his performance. Woods was seen limping during the Augusta Masters. Despite making the cut 23 times, Woods had to withdraw due to his nerve-racking injuries.
Tiger Woods has undergone an ankle surgery. This could lead him to miss the remainder of the 2022-2023 season. The surgery was called a “subtalar fusion” to correct Woods’ injuries from his car accident in 2021.
Woods’ Twitter account said , “Earlier today Tiger had a subtalar-fusion procedure performed to treat his post-traumatic osteoarthritis from his previous fracture. The surgery was performed by Dr. Martin O’Malley of the HSS Sports Medicine Institute in New York City. The surgery was deemed successful by him. Tiger is recovering well and looking forward to his rehabilitation. “
Has Tiger Woods become a legend?
Tiger Woods pulls out of the 87th Augusta Masters.
It would be difficult to answer this question. No one but legends such as Jack Nicklaus or Sam Snead. This comparison is made because woods has 15 majors, but is only one away from Sam Snead’s record.
Many fans have asked how long Woods will be able perform with these injuries. Tiger Woods showed a lot of determination at the beginning of the year. This was reflected even in the Genesis Pro Invitationals. “I don’t even know how many [Masters] are left in me . To be able appreciate my time here and cherish memories is the best way to do it. It’s amazing how the golf course looks as if it hasn’t been changed in over 100 years. But each year I come back, there are so many changes.
Woods, who suffered an injury in 2021 has only finished one major championship out of four. Woods had withdrawn after just three rounds from the PGA Championship, missed the US Open and missed the Open Championship’s cut.
Woods will next be seen at the PGA Championship in May of this year. His return is highly unlikely, however, due to his current ill health and ailing body.
