Tiger Wooda has shared his first photo following his devastating car crash in February, showing him smiling on crutches alongside one of his faithful dogs. 

The PGA legend posed outside his $40 million mansion in Jupiter, Florida on his four-hole backyard practice course, which is undergoing major renovations as he recovers from serious leg injuries.

'My course is coming along faster than I am,' he wrote on Instagram on Friday. 'But it’s nice to have a faithful rehab partner, man’s best friend.' 

Woods has two dogs at home, a Border Collie-Springer Spaniel mix named Bugs, who was seen in the photo, as well as an Australian Shepherd named Lola.

Police estimate that Woods was driving as fast as 87mph in the 45mph zone when his SUV crossed the median and rolled down a hill

Woods, 45, is currently recovering in Florida after crashing an SUV in Los Angeles County on February 23 and shattering his right leg.  

No other vehicles were involved in the crash although Woods allegedly did swerve across several lanes of oncoming traffic before rolling the SUV down a hill. 

Police estimate that Woods was driving as fast as 87mph in the 45mph zone that day. But despite his speed, and the fact that he struck a raised median, Woods is not being charged for reckless driving.

According to police, there wasn't enough evidence to charge Woods, who didn't undergo sobriety testing, but is not believed to have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol in the early-morning crash.

'Reckless driving, you have to have multiple violations in conjunction with one another,' Los Angeles County Sheriff's Captain James Powers told the media on April 7. 'That did not exist here … and the speeding, there's no independent witnesses regarding the speeding.' 

Woods was knocked unconscious and suffered a gash to his jaw as well as 'bruised right and left rib cage, fractured right tibia and fibula, possible right ankle injury,' according to the crash report obtained by DailyMail.com.

First responders noted that they saw Woods sitting in the driver's seat of the car with blood on his face and chin when they arrived. The legendary golfer was wearing his seatbelt and the airbag had deployed.

Woods was 'responsive and was able to speak,' a deputy noted in the report - but said he was 'acting in a manner consistent with someone suffering from shock.'

He also had cuts to the top-right side of his head, right eye and nose and right chin and jawline.

Woods told first responders that his right leg was 'in a lot of pain,' according to the crash report. When he was removed from the wreckage, first responders saw 'he had an open fracture mid-shaft on his right leg below the knee.'

Officials with the Los Angeles County Fire Department told investigators that Woods 'was somewhat combative when they were trying to treat him on scene.'

Woods was taken by ambulance to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and was given morphine and Zofran for the pain. He was later transferred to Cedars Sinai hospital before he was allowed to return home last month. 

WOODS THOUGHT HE WAS IN FLORIDA - NOT CALIFORNIA - AFTER HIS LA COUNTY WRECK 

Tiger Woods wasn't sure where he was when a sheriff's deputy interviewed him after his one-car crash in February, according to a 22-page report obtained by USA Today.

Woods was in Los Angeles for The Genesis Invitational and promotional appearances but told the deputy that he thought he was in Florida, where he makes his permanent residence.

The report details the conversation between deputy Kyle Sullivan and Woods, which took place at the hospital as Woods was receiving stitches for an injury to his face.

'I then asked (Woods) if he is able to tell me about what happened regarding the traffic collision,' Sullivan wrote. Woods 'told me he did not remember being involved in a traffic collision. (Woods) thought he was currently in the state of Florida.'

The report also revealed that Woods' blood pressure had fallen 'too low to administer any type of pain medication' in the immediate aftermath of the crash, which left the 82-time PGA Tour winner with serious injuries to his right leg.

It also confirmed that Woods was driving in a straight line when he should have attempted to navigate a curve while speeding on the morning of Feb. 23.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Wednesday at a press conference in downtown Los Angeles that there were no signs of impairment for Woods, who will not face any citations or charges for the crash on Feb. 23.

'The primary cause or factor for this traffic collision was driving at a speed unsafe for the road conditions and inability to negotiate the curve of the roadway,' Villanueva said.

Villanueva said Woods' Genesis SUV was traveling an estimated 84 to 87 mph on a stretch of road that has a speed limit of 45 mph.

Woods, 45, struck a raised median, crossed through two oncoming lanes and uprooted a tree before rolling over in Rolling Hills Estates, just outside of Los Angeles.

Wait! Tiger Woods DIDN’T Even Try to Decelerate Vehicle in Car Crash: Investigation

Woods' history of injuries dates back to at least 2008 when he famously won the US Open despite playing with two stress fractures and ligament damage in his left leg that required immediate surgery after his victory

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has revealed the main cause of Tiger Woods’ car crash in February. 
Woods was driving 84-87 mph in a 45-mph zone when he crashed his SUV in Rolling Hills Estates, Calif., on Feb. 23. Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Woods also failed to maintain the curvature of the road. Woods likely accidentally pressed the gas pedal instead of the brake pedal before the crash, according to LASD Lomita Station Captain James Powers, per Insider. 
As EURweb previously reported, Woods never even hit the brakes as he careened off the road, and there’s no evidence he took his foot off the gas either.

EURweb.com

The 45-year-old golf champ sustained serious injuries in the rollover crash. Per UPI.com, “Woods had multiple “open fractures” in his lower right leg and had a rod inserted into his tibia. He also had screws and pins put in his foot and ankle,” the outlet writes.

“We have contents of the black box,” Villanueva said. “Everything is completed, signed, sealed and delivered, but we can’t release it without the permission of the people involved in the collision.”

According to Powers, a sobriety test was not taken at the scene of the crash, and there was no evidence of intoxication. He also said Woods doesn’t remember the accident, Insider reports. 

In a statement, Woods said he will “continue to focus on my recovery and family.”

“I am so grateful to both of the good samaritans who came to assist me and called 911,” Woods said in a statement on Twitter. “I am also thankful to the LASD Deputies and LA Firefighter/Paramedics, especially LA Sheriff’s Deputy Carlos Gonzalez and LAFD Engine Co. #106 Fire Paramedics Smith and Gimenez, for helping me so expertly at the scene and getting me safely to the hospital.”

Horrific injuries Tiger Woods suffered in horror car crash forcing surgeons to piece his right leg back together using rods and screws - so will he ever play golf again? Tiger Woods - car crashed - overturnedTiger Woods – car crashed & overturned

As the Tiger Woods car-crash investigation expands, it’s looking like the Woods never even hit the brakes as he careened off the road. On top of that, there’s no evidence he took his foot off the gas either.

Specifically, as far as the investigation is concerned, The Sheriff’s Dept. has been looking at the vehicle, an SUV, the crash site and many other pieces of evidence. They are also retrieving data from the SUV’s black box. So far, based on what investigators have pieced together, Woods didn’t even try to prevent the crash once he lost control of the vehicle last month.

Sources with direct knowledge say investigators have looked at various videos … from the hotel where he started the ill-fated drive to various surveillance cameras along the way.

We’re told before Tiger got to the scene of the crash he had been driving “normal” and not speeding, but the evidence indicates he accelerated and was speeding when he lost control.

As we reported, the Sheriff’s Dept. says Tiger told one of the first responders he had no recollection of the accident.

This all leads to the question — Could Tiger have lost consciousness just before the crash?

As a reminder, the LA County Sheriff said almost immediately after the crash there was no evidence of impaired driving and there was no evidence of alcohol. On the other hand, the Sheriff never attempted to get a warrant to draw blood in order to test for medications.

Woods was recovering from back surgery at the time of the crash, and had been hosting a golf tournament — he couldn’t play because of his back.

Woods suffered serious leg injuries. In fact, some reports say he broke both.He is also said to have suffered a “big gash” on his chin from the impact.  He’s also said to be recovering at his home in Florida.

Tiger Woods crash: Golfer's career in doubt as he shatters right leg

Tiger Woods is recovering in hospital today after shattering his right leg in a horror car crash in Los Angeles - leaving serious doubts over whether he will ever return to professional sport.
Surgeons say the 45-year-old suffered 'comminuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones' in the crash - meaning his shin and calf bones splintered into more than two pieces each and were left sticking through the skin.
Woods also sustained 'additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle', his doctors said, which had to be stabilized with screws and pins.

The leg itself is being held together with a metal rod that was inserted into his tibia bone, the doctors added, along with metal pins to hold everything in place.

Membranes around his muscles were also cut to help ease severe swelling caused by the impact with his doctors describing the injuries as 'serious'. 

While Anish Mahajan, who is overseeing Woods' care, was unable to say if he will play golf again, medical experts have warned the golf star might never regain full mobility and said he was just one hour away from having his leg amputated.

The horror crash comes just two days after Woods spoke of his hopes to be ready to compete in the first major of the year, The Masters, in Augusta in April.

The 15-time major winner has had a career filled with remarkable comebacks where he has defied the odds several times to compete again with the world's best players.

Woods was on his way back to playing after his fifth back surgery. But following Tuesday's crash, his chances of returning to the golf course are in serious jeopardy.

Dr. John Torres, NBC News Senior Medical Correspondent, said the 'big concern was amputation' and that if Woods hadn't undergone emergency surgery within around an hour of the crash he could have lost his right leg. 

'When it comes to emergencies with leg injuries, what happens is the pressure starts building up because of swelling and that part of the leg and that builds up to such a high point that it cuts of circulation and causes nerve damage if it's not taken care of quickly,' Torres said on the Today show Wednesday.

'So what surgeons do is they go in and they basically release that pressure by opening up the muscle exposing it to the outside so they have a way to relieve the pressure and that lets the circulation flow, that lets the nerve not be damaged.

'That's the true emergency there behind everything that's happened to Tiger.'

Torres said speed was critical in this scenario: 'The big concern was amputation. As if they don't have that done quickly - I mean within an hour or so - that could mean an amputation of that leg.'

The medic said the statement released by Woods' medical team at Harbor-UCLA 'doesn't sound good and it is not good for his recovery'.

Woods' ankle injury is of particular concern, he said, as it limits mobility and extends the recovery time.

WHAT INJURIES DOES TIGER WOODS HAVE? 

Anish Mahajan, chief medical officer at Harbor-UCLA hospital where Woods is being treated, revealed he has suffered 'comminuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones.'

That means the bones - more commonly known as the shinbone and calf bone - have splintered into more than two pieces, and have come through the skin.

Woods also suffered 'additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle', Mahajan said, without elaborating further.

In order to treat the injuries, Mahajan said a metal rod was inserted into Woods' tibia which is being stabilized with rods and pins.

Additional screws and pins have been inserted into his foot and ankle, Mahajan added.

Membranes covering Woods' leg muscles were also cut to relieve pressure in the leg from swelling, he said.

He described the injuries as 'serious', and could not give a prognosis or say whether Woods will be able to play golf again. he recovery period is around six weeks for a typical fracture 'but if you look at the fractures he's got multiple fractures to the leg, also fractures to the foot and the ankle,' he said. 

'Depending on what they have to do to the ankle that's going to be the hard recovery period so he's going to get the usual post-recovery from a fracture muscle atrophy, having to learn to go back and walk again, to build up that muscle, that's going to take a few months.

'But if he had to get that ankle fused or if he had any big procedures done to the ankle they're going to limit mobility. That's going to take longer to recover.'

Torres added: 'He truly might never get that mobility back he had before which could definitely impact the way he plays.'

Tuesday's surgery was at least the 10th for Woods, who has suffered knee, back and neck injuries for more than a decade. 

The crash spared his left leg on which he previously underwent reconstructive surgery after shredding his knee ligaments and suffering a double stress fracture in 2008.  

It is not clear if the mounting doubt of a career comeback has sunk in yet for Woods as he lies in his hospital recovering, but the first deputy on the scene has said the sports star did not realize how serious his injuries were when he found him.

Deputy Carlos Gonzalez of the LA County Sheriff's Department said Woods didn't mention any injuries when he reached him and held him in conversation until he was cut from the vehicle. 

'I don't think he was aware of how gravely injured he was at the time,' Gonzalez told the Today Show.

'It could be a mixture of adrenaline, it could have been shock. Again it was so quick from the moment I arrived from the moment he rolled over so I don't know if he had time to fully assess his injuries.'
