Tiger Woods is widely regarded as one of the all-time great golfers. He is a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame and one of the most famous athletes in history. Tiger Woods’ daughter recently revealed that she feared the golf legend would lose his leg after a car accident.

Tiger Woods’ daughter said she and the rest of the golf legend’s family were terrified Tiger would lose his leg after a car accident last year. The revelation came from 14-year-old Sam Woods, who introduced Tiger at his World Golf Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Wednesday night in Florida, explaining that the golfer’s injuries were that serious.

According to TMZ, Tiger suffered comminuted open fractures in his right leg after crashing his SUV in Los Angeles in February 2021. He needed a rod, pins, and screws to fix the damage.

Tiger had previously stated that the possibility of amputation was discussed in the aftermath of the accident and Sam reiterated during her speech to a crowd at the PGA TOUR’s headquarters that they were very concerned it might happen.

“We didn’t know if you’d come home with two legs or not.” Fortunately, Tiger was able to recover, and Sam praised the 46-year-old in her speech for perseverance.

“Now, not only about to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, but you’re standing here on your own two feet. This is why you deserve this. Because you’re a fighter.”

Tiger walked into the ceremony earlier Wednesday in a pair of shorts, revealing no serious scarring visible from feet away, and showed off the injured leg without a sleeve for the first time publicly. It’s unclear when the golfer will be able to compete on the PGA Tour again, but he did participate in a fun tournament with his son, Charlie, in December.

In his acceptance speech, Woods thanked his family, friends, and fellow golfers and teared up several times. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
