Tiger Woods has the golf world in a frenzy on Sunday morning.
The 15-time major champion was in a serious car accident in Southern California in late February. Woods suffered multiple serious injuries in the accident and underwent emergency surgeries. He’s been recovering and rehabbing ever since.
Naturally, fans have wondered if Woods would ever play competitive golf again.
Sunday morning, Woods released an update. He’s making progress on his swing.
“Making progress,” he tweeted.

Many have speculated about Woods’ future in golf since his accident. While it remains to be seen if he’ll play professionally again, it certainly looks like he’s going to try.
One of Woods’ closest friends on the PGA Tour, Justin Thomas, believes he’ll try.
“I don’t know. I know that he’s going to try,” Thomas told the podcast No Laying Up. “I don’t see him ever playing if he can’t play well. He doesn’t strike me as a guy that’s going to play at home shooting a bunch of 75s and 76s and he’s like, ‘All right, I’m gonna go give Augusta a try this year.’ That’s just not gonna be him.
“But at the same time, I know how determined he is,” Thomas added. “I know he’s gonna want to at least try to give something again. Obviously, I hope he does. But at the same time, as long as he can be a normal dad again, that’s the No. 1 priority again and the rest is a bonus.”
Hopefully we’ll see Woods back on the course soon.
