Tiger Woods seen on crutches as he arrives in Los Angeles, presumably for the first time since terrible crash



Tiger Woods was seen on crutches and with a leg brace on an asphalt at Los Angeles airport on Tuesday along with girlfriend Erica Herman.

The photos showed the legendary golfer wearing a white cap and a compression stocking on his right leg and was about to get into a black SUV. Herman was in a golf cart with Woods next to her in the passenger seat.

It appeared to be Woods’ first time back in the Los Angeles area since the horrific crash in February that left him with a serious leg injury. Woods has mostly been on rehab in Florida.

In May, Woods spoke about the collapse for the first time.

“This has been a completely different animal,” Woods told Golf Digest. “I understand more of the rehabilitation processes due to my past injuries, but this was more painful than anything else I have ever experienced.”

TIGER WOODS OFFER TO JOIN US OPEN COVERAGE: ‘HE DOESN’T WANT TO DO IT’

A doctor treating Woods initially said the legendary golfer suffered open fractures affecting his tibia and fibula, injuries to his foot and ankle, and trauma to his leg muscles and soft tissues that “required surgical release” to relieve pressure. A crash report later revealed that Woods was also “knocked unconscious, sore lower jaw, bruised right and left rib cage, broken right tibia and fibula, possible right ankle injury.”

He had stints at two different hospitals in Los Angeles before returning home to Florida to recover.

“My physiotherapy has kept me busy. I do my routines every day and am focused on my No. 1 goal right now: to walk alone. To take it one step at a time,” he told Golf Digest.

When the US Open was ready for this weekend in San Diego, California, Woods was reportedly asked to help with coverage, but declined the request.
