Tiger Woods is back home in Florida recovering from his February car crash and when (or if) he ever tees it up again is still an unknown, but if we’ve learned one thing about Woods over the years it’s that he doesn’t love to sit still. Therefore it should come as no surprise that Woods appears to be doing some serious work on his backyard practice facility.

Florida pilot Dakota Atkinson shared an overhead picture of Woods’ practice facility on Wednesday and it’s clear that The Big Cat is having work done on three of the four greens on the property as well as the majority of the grass. The TWLegion account also shared the photo.

The facility, officially named Jupiter Island Practice Facility, is made up of 3.5 acres featuring four greens, bunkers, and plenty of room to hit shots from up to 150 yards. According to his design website, the practice facility was built when he moved into his current home back in 2010.

There’s certainly no better time to give your at-home practice facility a facelift than when you’re recovering from multiple surgeries.

Woods’ single-car crash took place on February 23 and he returned home to Florida in mid-March.

Woods suffered 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 during surgery. He suffered additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle were stabilized with a combination of pins and screws.

The Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department recently released its findings from the investigation into the accident. Excessive speed was determined the sole cause of the accident with Woods reportedly driving over 80 MPH in a 45 MPH speed zone at the time of the crash.
