The British Open is the last major championship event of the 2022 season, and it begins next month at the home of golf, St. Andrews, Scotland. The tournament includes some of the biggest names in the sport, and as per his last words, Tiger Woods might too tee up at the event. However, a picture of Woods recently surfaced on social media platforms that may point to the opposite side.
The picture of Tiger Woods from yesterday’s practice round has been trending on the internet. Leif Skodnick uploaded the image of Woods in his usual shorts and golf polo appeal, posing with one of his young fans out on the golf course in Florida. However, his right leg, which is already injured, caught the eyes of every golf fan.
Leif made the tweet using his official Twitter account on June 19. The 15-time major championship winner went out for a Father’s Day practice round ahead of the 2022 Open Championship at St. Andrews. Skodnick uploaded the photo with the caption, “Look at Tiger Woods’ right leg in this recent photo – incredible that he can play at all, much less competitively. @willbardwell @AlanShipnuck @firepitstories.”
The former World Number One’s leg looked terrible with all the scars from the surgery. At the same time, his leg seemed out of the standard shape, sending chills down the fans’ spine. Not to forget, the 82-time PGA Tour winner met with a near-fatal accident in February last year. As a result, he was out of the sport for nearly nine months. Woods finally returned to competitive golf at this year’s Masters at Augusta National Golf Club.

The golf Twitter turned into a frenzy as soon as Tiger Woods’ practice round image came to light. Golf fans from all parts of the globe started to react to the worrisome photo of the golf legend. Most fans portrayed their concern for the 46-year-old professional through their reactions. At the same time, others were shocked to see the bad condition of his right leg. Some of the fans were shocked how Woods managed to walk without a cane.
