Tiger Woods is “focused on his recovery” after his horror crash.

The golfing pro suffered multiple leg injuries after his car hit the curb and flipped over several times in a crash in February, and sources have now said he remains focused on getting back to full health after he underwent emergency surgery for “significant orthopaedic injuries to his right lower extremity” in the wake of the crash.

An insider told People magazine: “Tiger is happy to be back home, He is focused on his continued recovery.

There is a rehabilitation plan in place.

“He has his down moments but is doing everything he can to heal.

He wants go back on tour at some point.

He is eager to get back into shape.”

Tiger was released from hospital last month, and said he was thankful for the medical staff who helped nurse him back to health.

He said at the time: “Happy to report that I am back home and continuing my recovery.

I am so grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement that I have received over the past few weeks.

“Thank you to the incredible surgeons, doctors, nurses and staff at Harbor-UCLA Medical Centre and Cedars Sinai Medical Centre.

You have all taken such great care of me and I cannot thank you enough.

I will be recovering at home and working on getting stronger every day.”

Shortly after undergoing surgery, a spokesperson for Tiger confirmed the golf legend was “awake, responsive and recovering”.

In a statement on social media, the spokesperson said: “He is currently awake, responsive, and recovering in his hospital room.

“Thank you to the wonderful doctors and hospital staff at Harbor UCLA Medical Centre, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, and the Fire Department.

Your support and assistance has been outstanding.”

Meanwhile, it was recently reported Tiger didn’t hit the brakes during his crash.

Investigators looking into the crash have looked at a number of surveillance cameras on his route – from the beginning to the time of the crash, as well as the crash site itself and the data from the black box of the vehicle – and have concluded he did not decelerate in the moments before and after the incident.

There were no citations issued 

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said in a press conference on Wednesday that Tiger Woods was driving an estimated 84-87 mph in a 45-mph zone when he crashed his SUV on Feb.

23 in Rolling Hills Estates, Calif., The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) confirmed that the primary cause of the crash was Woods driving at an unsafe speed. 

Villanueva said, “The primary causal factor for this traffic collision was driving at a speed unsafe for the road conditions and the inability to negotiate the curve of the roadway.

Estimated speed at the first area of impact was 84-87 mph and the final estimated speed when the vehicle struck the tree at 75 mph.

There were no citations issued and there were no signs of impairment.” He also stated that the department did not have probable cause to conduct a sobriety test and did not issue a search warrant to access phone records to see if Woods was distracted.

According to LASD, officers felt it was inappropriate to do a field sobriety test due to the state of Woods’s injuries.

At the scene of the accident, officers reported that Woods was conscious, and no charges were issued against Woods.
