Woods hasn't played a tournament since December 2020.

Tiger Woods does not expect to return to the tour full-time after his car accident.

The 15-time major champion had surgery on his lower right leg, which was broken in two places.

Woods shared footage of himself playing golf for the first time since the accident, and said he was making progress.

He said getting all the way to the top is not realistic.

Pick a few events a year and you can play around with them. He told Golf Digest that he would have to play it that way.

It's unfortunate, but it's my reality. I accept it, and I understand it.

The car Woods was in left the road and flipped several times.

The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department said that the former world number one was fortunate to be alive after the incident on February 23, and that he was wearing his seatbelt.

"I have a long way to go," Woods said.

I'm not at the halfway point. I have more muscle and nerve development in my leg.

If I were going to walk out of that hospital with one leg, there was a point in time when I wouldn't say it was 50-50.

Tiger Woods had serious injuries in the crash.

The last time Woods played was in December of 2020 when he and his son played in an event.

He won his 15th major at the Masters in 2019, after recovering from back surgery and other injuries.

He had a fifth back surgery.

Woods said that he had to climb Mount Everest one more time after his back fusion. I had to do it.

I don't think I'll be able to climb Mount Everest this time around.

I can still play golf. I can still click off a tournament if my leg is okay.

I don't think it's realistic for me to expect to get to the top of the mountain again.
