Golf: Tiger Woods leaves hospital after last month's car accident

Golf superstar Tiger Woods is back home and continuing his recovery after suffering severe leg injuries in a car accident last month.

"Happy to report that I am back home continuing my recovery," tweets Woods, 45. "I will be recovering at home and working on getting stronger every day."

Woods, who was treated at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and later Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, thanked his medical team, as well as his fans for their well wishes.

"I am so grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement that I have received over the past few weeks," said Woods.

Woods, who has endured back and knee injuries throughout his career, is considered the greatest golfer of his generation, winning 15 Major titles, and remains the only modern pro to win all four Major titles in succession.

The golfing world united in their support of Woods and his recovery, with players donning his trademark red shirt and black trousers for the final day of this month’s World Golf Championship event in Florida. 

Earlier this month, the Los Angeles Police Department was investigating data from the ‘black box’ recorder inside the car driven by Woods, but has said the incident was an accident.
