Tiger Woods shared some encouraging news with fans Friday, as the golfer continued to recover from Tuesday’s rollover wreck in California.
“Tiger has been moved to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and received follow-up procedures on his injuries this morning. The procedures were successful and he is now recovering and in good spirits,” read a message posted to his Twitter account.
“Tiger and his family want to thank you all for the wonderful support and messages they have received over the past few days. We will not have any further updates at this time.”
Woods was conscious when he was extricated through the front windshield of his SUV after it crashed on a downhill stretch of road in Rancho Palos Verdes.
Police characterized the crash as “purely an accident” and ruled out criminal charges against Woods, who officials said was sober.
Woods suffered a shattered right leg, and doctors inserted a rod into his leg and placed screws in his foot and ankle.
Doctors said the hardware could be permanent and keep him off his feet for while, but the 15 time PGA Tour champ is said to determined to get back on the links.
“He doesn’t want his career to end like this,” a source close to the 45-year-old athlete said Wednesday. “So if there’s any way at all that he can continue playing golf, he will.”
