Tiger Woods car crash: 9 months after tragedy, the big cat swings a club again

Remember this moment. The moment Tiger Woods initiated another comeback from the abyss. 

We have been told constantly to never write off Woods, and the big cat has us dreaming again. 

For the 15-time major champion is not only walking again but he's back to hitting golf balls on the range. 

Woods posted the monumental update on his social media channels on 21 November with the title: "Making progress". 

Progress indeed. Just look at that swing. Poetry in motion. Woods swinging without a care in the world, making clean contact again. 

This is not just one simple swing for the cameras. Look at those divots. This was a full blown practise session. 

He's even got the TrackMan out, too. 

Siri, what are the odds for Tiger Woods to win the Masters?

The patched up right leg remind us that it was not so long ago that Woods almost lost his life. 

He was involved in a single-vehicle crash when he rolled his luxury SUV whilst speeding from one event to another. 

Surely it was the end? Well, apparently not. Woods will try to make a comeback, it seems. 

Most recently, his friend and frequent visitor Justin Thomas revealed that Woods would try to play again. 

We have not heard Woods speak publicly since his crash. 

In typical Woods fashion, actions speak louder than words. 

Boy does it feel good to see Woods swing again. 

We have been desperate to hear from the now 45-year-old about his future. 

For now, at least, it's being a dad and grinding on the range.

Welcome back, big cat.
