Three days into U.S. Open week at Torrey Pines in San Diego, the references to Tiger Woods’ win there in 2008 on a broken leg seem never-ending. (Is there a better U.S. Open hero story from recent memory? For a reminder, check out the new plaque commemorating that victory at Torrey Pines.)

Woods obviously is not in this week’s field to make the same kind of magic as he continues his recovery from a single-car accident in February, but on Tuesday video surfaced on social media of Woods walking on crutches.

The video, posted by TMZ (and picked up on Instagram by the handle @twspot), shows Woods walking a short distance from an unidentified building to a waiting car. He is seen putting some weight on the injured right leg and maneuvering quite well.

The caption indicated that the video captured Woods’ arrival in Los Angeles.

For now, the wait continues for Big Cat to make a hopeful return to the competition stage, but you can count on a few hundred more Woods references before U.S. Open week is over.
