We haven’t heard much from Tiger Woods or his team when it comes to the status of his recovery following his February 23 car accident in California. On March 16 he shared that he had returned to his home in Florida to continue his recovery and the last bit of news we heard from Woods came ahead of April’s Masters when he shared he wouldn’t be attending the champions dinner.
Golf Channel analyst and co-host of the Rippin’ It podcast George Savaricas has heard some things regarding Woods’ recovery process, however. According to Savaricas, Woods is still waiting for blood circulation to get back to normal in his injured right foot. Woods needs to hit that benchmark for a recovery timeline to fall into place.
Have an @TigerWoods injury update, hearing TW at the point in the healing process where the next benchmark is for blood circulation to get back to normal in his injured right foot.
Once this happens recovery timelines will fall into place, currently in “wait and see” mode.

As Savaricas notes, the recovery process is very much still in the ‘wait and see’ stage, which certainly is no surprise given the severity of his injuries and the lack of significant updates from Woods.
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 also suffered additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle. Those injuries were stabilized with a combination of pins and screws.
Excessive speed was determined the sole cause of the crash with Woods reportedly driving over 80 MPH in a 45 MPH speed zone at the time of the accident.
