Tiger Woods addressed the media for the first time on Tuesday, a few days before the first round of his Hero World Challenge gets underway later this week.

After his car accident in February, the severity of Woods’ injuries couldn’t be understated. Seemingly everything in his lower left leg was shattered, and many questioned if he’d ever walk again.

“I’m lucky to be alive and to still have the limb. I’m very grateful that someone upstairs was taking care of me … (amputation) was on the table.”

The conversation is no longer about if he’ll ever walk again, but if he’ll ever play again. He touched on that possibility, and if he’ll ever be in a field on the PGA Tour down the road.

“As far as playing at the Tour level, I don’t know when that’s gonna happen. I’ll play a round here and there, a little hit-and-giggle, I can do something like that.”
