In the return battle from the Tiger Woods accident

Tiger Woods, 46, had an accident in his car last February.



He was hospitalized for about three weeks after suffering a serious injury to his right leg in an accident caused by an overspeed while driving a car near Los Angeles in the western United States.



After his discharge, he worked on rehab and played at an exhibition tournament with his son last December, but did not participate in the tour tournament.



Woods' last play on the US tour was the "Masters Tournament" in November, which was postponed due to the influence of the new Corona.



Woods, who won the 15th overseas major in the 2019 Masters the previous year, finished 38th in this year's tournament aiming for consecutive championships, and after that he had a back surgery. I was forced to miss a long time due to a car accident without participating in the tour.



Woods has scored 82 wins in total, which is the highest number in the history of the US tour, and 5 of them are the Masters wins.



Attention is being paid to what kind of play Woods will play on the stage of the highest peak of overseas majors selected as a return game from the accident.
