1. Tiger’s Bulging Biceps
After not being seen in public for months, Tiger’s biceps look bigger than Bryson’s. With his tight fitting, black-and-grey camo print Nike blade collar Tiger looked more like an Army Ranger than professional golfer sitting on the dais facing reporters.
2. He Could Have Lost His leg
“I’m lucky to be alive but also still have the limb,” Woods said. “… I’m very grateful that someone upstairs was taking care of me, that I’m able to not only be here but also to walk without a prosthesis.”
3. Hospital Bed for 3 months
Woods was in pain and completely dependent on others for three months as he was confined to a hospital bed before he could even think about rehabbing and returning to normal life, much less professional golf.
4. Don’t Ask About the Accident
Woods was in no mood to talk about the accident and he answered coldly and directly when a reporter asked him about it. “All those answers have been answered in the investigation, so you can read about all that there in the post report,” Woods said.
5. Goal is to Play Hogan-Like Schedule
Woods admires Ben Hogan immensely and he wants to duplicate his schedule if he’s physically and mentally able. Hogan’s career was also interrupted by an auto accident. In 1949, Hogan’s Cadillac sedan collided head on with a Greyhound bus and he suffered a broken left ankle, contusions to his left leg, a broken collarbone, a cracked rib, a double fracture of the pelvis, a head abrasion and internal injuries. After the accident, Hogan didn’t play more than 7 tournaments a year, however, during that time he amazingly won 6 of his 9 major championships.
