Following a deadly car crash on February 23, 2021, world-renowned golfer Tiger Woods has recently returned home after a three-week-long hospital stay. Giving an update, a close source explained that Woods is happy to be home with his family.
Though some parts of his body are still in pain, overall, he’s in good spirits. He considers himself lucky to be alive and appreciates the medical support he’s received from the hospitals.
While the official statement doesn’t point it out, we believe that the particular reason Woods is so happy to be home is that he couldn’t bear to be away from his children anymore. FYI, Woods has a 12-year-old son named Charlie Axel and a 13-year-old daughter named Sam Alexis.
The golfer was constantly in touch with his kids while he was undergoing treatment at the hospital, but of course, we can only imagine his delight when he finally got to see them and be with them.
