Tiger Woods Puts Weight On Surgically Repaired Leg During Trip To L.A.

Positive update from Tiger Woods... The golf star is now putting considerable weight on his surgically-repaired leg -- just five month after it was almost lost in a car accident. El Tigre was spotted in Los Angeles with Erica Herman this week. While he is still crutching and wearing a protective shirt, the 45-year old showed that he can clearly put most, if not all, of his body weight on the leg. Woods was seen outside his Beverly Hills hotel, standing on one leg and even walking a little on it. It's great news for Tiger, 'cause after his February 23 rollover accident in L.A., many wondered if he would ever be able use his right leg again. Woods sustained comminuted open fractures in the accident and required a rod, screws, and pins to fix the damage. Woods spent the majority of his time in Florida recovering from the accident. However, he has made at least two trips back to L.A. since then.
