On Feb. 23, Tiger Woods suffered serious leg injuries in a single-car accident in Southern California and has been hospitalized since then- until now.
Woods tweeted on Tuesday night that he’s now “back home and continuing [his] recovery.”
“I will be recovering at home and working on getting stronger every day,” Woods added in the statement.

“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 Center and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. 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.
It’s Woods’ first tweet since Feb. 28, when golfers around the world wore red shirts and black pants in honor of the 15-time major champion.
It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the tv and saw all the red shirts. To every golfer and every fan, you are truly helping me get through this tough time.

We have no idea if Woods will golf again, but that’s quite secondary to his general health and well-being of course. It’s fantastic to hear that he’s back home recovering, and hopefully he keeps making progress.
