Tiger Woods will require screws and pins to be able to walk - Golf broadcaster
The injury sustained by Tiger Woods on Tuesday night was severe and per the words of Bob Bubka, the professional golfer will require support to be able to walk.
Legendary golf broadcaster and reporter Bob Bubka has told that Tiger Woods survival from the crucial accident is his biggest accomplishment in his entire career, but will “require screws and pins in his lower right leg, foot and ankle.”
The golfing legend reported by Marca was the only person in the car and had to be removed via the hydraulic rescue tool called the 'jaws of life' before been rushed to the hospital in Los Angeles.
According to Bob Bubka, who has played a key role in the broadcasting of Tiger Woods games speaking on talkSPORTS on Wednesday morning told that although the injury is very severe yet being able to survive is good news.
“The last 12 hours have been absolutely incredible to deal with,” he said on Breakfast show on talkSPORTS.
“I’ve covered all 15 of Tiger’s majors and everyone was a major accomplishment, but I think what he did this afternoon in surviving this crash is probably by far his biggest accomplishment of his career.
“The news just out is not good, they said they require screws and pins in his lower right leg, foot and ankle.
“The ankle was apparently severely crushed, and when you think of an ankle being crushed and you think about the sport of golf, that doesn't add up.
“But the main thing is he is alive.
“He’s got two children and it looks like, if he can’t be a golfer, he’s going to able to continue to be father, and right now what’s the most important thing.
“He’s tough and he’s going to have to be tough, these injuries are so bad just for anybody, but for a professional golfer, I cannot even imagine what he’s going through right now.
“We’re just all so thankful that he’s alive, he’s responsive, he’s come out of the operation and this the first baby step towards recovery.”
