On his legs, without crutches, leaning (initially) on a golf "stick" For the first time since the serious accident last February in Los Angeles, Tiger Woods showed himself to the public without a brace on his leg but with a simple (and long) protective sock.
He did it in Florida, on a golf course, with the Californian closely following a tournament of his son Charlie.
Tiger Woods, condition
The rehabilitation of the very champion of the "green" whose dream is to return to play soon seems to be proceeding in the right direction.
In fact, if at first Woods had himself portrayed leaning on a golf club, in another he appeared standing on his legs, without any support. A new career as a mental coach, alongside some of the best golfers in the world to drag them to success and support them in times of difficulty.
This is what Michael Phelps, the most decorated athlete in the history of the Olympics, seems to have undertaken (also in the name of friendship). A great golf enthusiast, many now define him as the "secret weapon" of green totems such as Jon Rahm, number one in the world ranking, and Jordan Spieth, the Texan who, after a long period of crisis, is back in 2021 to amaze.
"He's a good guy, he's been through a lot as a sportsman and he's the greatest Olympian of all time with a lot of tricks up his sleeve. I'm not going to reveal what I asked him but I can say that he has helped me a lot in the last period.
" These are the revelations of the Spaniard Rahm. For the legendary swimmer, nicknamed 'the Baltimore Shark', important words also came from Spieth, today 12 / o in the world ranking. "The mental aspect is something I've worked on a lot with him lately.
I'm really lucky to have him around. Besides, he's a great lover of golf and having him now more and more in our world is an added value." This is the opinion of Spieth who yesterday, alongside Phelps, played the Pro-Am of the BMW Championship, the second event of the Play-Offs of the Pga Tour starting today in Owing Mills (USA), Maryland.
