While he didn’t win on the green, Tiger’s comeback was a win in itself

The annual Master’s Tournament was played from April 7 to April 10 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. The event is one of the premier tournaments on the PGA Tour, drawing fans from all over the country and the world.

This week the Masters had even more attention than in the past, as Tiger Woods is making his first start since suffering multiple injuries in a car crash over a year ago.

The accident occurred on February 23, 2021, Woods was driving on the highway around 7 a.m., when he hit the center median and went flying into the other lane. His Genesis SUV rolled over multiple times and hit a tree on the side of the road. He sustained multiple serious leg injuries and was hospitalized for weeks after the crash.

It has been a road of recovery since then for Woods, he left the hospital in March 2021 and began doing therapy sessions twice a day in May and June. In November, Woods posted a video of him hitting balls for the first time since the injury, garnering lots of support from fans and the media.

Tiger made his first showing in the PNC Championship tournament back in December, playing alongside his 13-year-old son Charlie. The event was a scramble between the two players, and the duo finished in second place at 25 under par, two shots back of John Daly and his son John II.

This week it is considered a huge accomplishment just for Tiger Woods to be playing in the Masters, as many people questioned whether he would ever be a world-class golfer again after his accident.
