Tiger Woods sighting? Photo indicates Tiger is back on the golf course watching over son Charlie, club in hand
Tiger Woods has been in recovery since his single-car accident back in February. Woods suffered fractures to his tibia and fibula in his right leg, along with other damage to the lower leg. He’s been spotted out and about in L.A. visiting doctors during his rehab, sitting in a cart watching his son, Charlie, play golf, but this sighting is a little bit different.
A photo posted to the Twitter account @TWLEGION appears to show Woods keeping an eye on his son on the range, reportedly at a junior event in Florida. Woods is standing on his own – no crutches or golf cart – with a golf club in hand, with just a black sleeve on the majority of his right leg.
🚨BACK ON THE COURSE — Tiger Woods was seen this weekend in Florida watching his son compete at a junior event. TW was wearing a sleeve on his right leg & golf clothes on the range with a club in hand. First sighting in quite some time. 🙌 (Post credit: Mack Williams / Facebook) pic.twitter.com/U7Ie42ZxOE

We haven’t heard much from Woods since his accident, but we did hear about his conversation with the U.S. Ryder Cup team a few weeks ago at Whistling Straits. His message obviously resonated with the team, as they would go on to demolish the European side, 19-9.
This image should serve as another positive sign for golf fans, as it appears we may see Woods return to the PGA Tour after all. Steve Stricker had this to say about Woods in the days leading up to the Ryder Cup.
“He won’t be able to be a captain’s assistant this time around because of his on-going rehabilitation to try and get better. To try to play golf again. And that is going well,” Stricker said. “He’s progressing. He’s doing well, things are moving in the right direction.”
We’ve seen incredible things from Woods, including his triumph at Augusta National back in 2019. At this point, it’s impossible to doubt him.
