LOS ANGELES – When it comes to the world of sports betting, there is no such thing as being “too soon”.
Legendary golfer Tiger Woods suffered a near-fatal single-car crash Tuesday morning near Los Angeles when his SUV crossed a median and veered across two lanes of highway before flipping over a curb, hitting a tree, and eventually coming to rest on its side.
The original news broke with very little details, leaving many golf fans terrified for the health of Woods.
Luckily, Woods’ was not fatally injured and was able to be removed from the wreckage. Woods was rushed to surgery, where it was revealed that he sustained injuries to his right leg. His leg required a rod, screws, and pins during surgery in order to avoid amputation.
While the world can finally release its breath knowing that Tiger is ok, many are already asking if Woods will ever be able to return to golf again. Woods currently sits at 82 career wins on the PGA Tour, and needs just one more win to pass Sam Snead for the all-time record.
With Woods’ history of major back surgery and now major leg surgery, his future on the links is highly up in air.
As Rory McIlory reminded the world following the crash, just having Woods alive is the important thing right now.
Naturally, in the world of sports betting, nothing is off-limits. Certain online sportsbooks have already posted on the future of Woods’ on the golf course, with EVEN odds for him to play in any PGA Tour tournament in 2022.

For the severity of Tiger’s injuries, it is unlikely he will be playing golf for a minimum of 6-8 months. However, a broken leg is not the worst thing to come back from- but given Woods’ history of back injuries, complications from the injuries could hold him back.
While Tiger needs just one more win to get the all-time record, he needs three more major championships to pass Jack Nicklaus.
