Tiger Woods offered an update on his injured right ankle which almost cost him his life.

“My ankle is fine,” Woods told the Associated Press’ Doug Ferguson. “Where they fused my ankle, I have absolutely zero issue whatsoever. That pain is completely gone. It’s the other areas that have been compensated for.”

That doesn’t mean he’s completely out of the woods yet, however. There’s still pain in his leg.

“All the surrounding areas is where I had all my problems, and I still do,” he said. “So you fix one, others have to become more hypermobile to get around it, and it can lead to some issues.”

Woods was seen limping during The Masters in April where he ended up having to withdraw from the tournament, announcing he was dealing with planter fasciitus.

A few days after he pulled out, he underwent a subtalar fusion to help the pain that occurred following previous surgeries.

Woods suffered multiple leg injuries after a horrific car crash two years ago where he was removed from his vehicle using the jaws of life and was taken to a hospital in Los Angeles County.

The injuries ultimately included a shattered ankle and two leg fractures.

Many weren’t sure he would ever play– let alone — walk again.

Woods recently announced he, along with Rory McIlroy, will be in partnership with a new “tech-infused” team golf league. Woods will co-own one of the teams with investor David Blitzer. Woods will also play on the Jupiter Links Golf Club Team.
