Tiger, who had been out of competition since late February after his tragic car accident leading to multiple fractures and internal injuries was expected to take more than usual time to return to professional golf, many even questioning if the 45-year-old will ever be able to walk. But, the video has put a sense of silence on all the questioners and has even posed a bigger question for all fans, will we ever get to see him play competitive again? As the video goes, one might believe he will be back soon. But, let’s just be patient and give Tiger his own time, as we all know, he has been back from his previous injuries and surgeries and he would surely be back with this one too all healthy and fine.
In 2017, after his fourth fusion surgery, Tiger had posted a similar tweet with the message ‘Making Progress’ and he came back later and won the 2018 Tour Championship, his first win in over five years, followed by the 2019 Masters Tournament and the inaugural Zozo Championship in Japan for an epic culmination of a year of exciting golf prior to the pandemic.
Prior to the accident, Tiger had undergone a spinal surgery for a fifth time in January and was expected to make his return within a month after taking appropriate rest and precautions.

As I’m hanging in Montana, it’s great to see Tiger swinging a golf club again. I know he can’t stand me holding a single record so I’m guessing HE wants to be the oldest to ever win a major. I’ll just say this. BRING IT!
