“I will continue to focus on my recovery and family, and thank everyone for the overwhelming support and encouragement I’ve received throughout this very difficult time,” Woods’ statement concluded.
Woods was driving somewhere between 84 to 87 mph when he lost control of his vehicle, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said. The golfer was reportedly going 75 mph when he made the final impact with the tree. Police also said they had no reason to believe Woods was using his phone at the time of the crash.
The legendary golfer crashed his SUV on Feb. 23 in Southern California. Woods suffered fractures to both his tibia and fibula, which required emergency surgery, as previously reported.
