Aaron Hicks, who dating Cheyenne Woods, Tiger Woods' niece, spoke about the legendary golfer's car accident during his Zoom availability at Yankees spring training Thursday, calling the incident "extremely scary."

Woods crushed his right leg and suffered extensive injuries after a serious, single-car, rollover crash earlier this week. While some may question what's next for Woods' golf career, his family is most concerned with his ability to resume a normal life.

“I think right now, we’re trying to make sure with everything that’s going on with the surgeries and stuff, that he’s just gonna be healthy again,” Hicks said Thursday.

“Making sure he can be a father again and being able to enjoy and run around and play with his kids is what’s important right now.”

“He’s very fortunate to be alive,” said Dr. Kirk Campbell, sports medicine specialist and orthopedic surgeon, Department of Orthopedic Surgery at NYU Langone Health. “It’s going to take several months to just walk.”
