Tiger Woods is a man with a rich career, but the injuries that have plagued him lately are really causing sadness among Woods fans. Tiger is in the process of rehabilitation, and a recent appearance on the golf course was a sign that he could be back soon.

It is too early to talk about anything, but it is to be hoped that it will actually happen. Foot and ankle surgeon Nima Heidari is a great expert, and she decided to clarify what Tiger Woods' injury is, his recovery, and whether he will be able to fully recover.

"Everything should have healed, at that point then no holds barred. He has got absolutely unrestricted rehabilitation. And the thing is that the conversion to unrestricted rehabilitation really is not a time thing. It is a function of when the bones have knitted together enough.

" Healing a fracture was one of the topics. "It's a bit like a fracture. You know, once the fracture is healed, you can then start rehabilitating in an unrestricted way. When he reaches that point where things have healed enough then it becomes unrestricted and I suspect that they would be keeping a very close eye on him and he may have one or two more scans to really assess the bone union so that they can optimize his return to play."- she said.

Tiger Woods and next challenges: Hero World Challenge

Many hope that Woods could play at the Hero World Challenge, hosted by him. There is one empty place left. The question arises; Who will be the last to appear? Tiger is a man who, with his return, would once again raise the game to a higher level.

Golf misses people like him. We will see what the future holds for him, and whether we can really see Woods at his peak. Hero World Challenge attracts huge attention, considering that big names will be part of this competition.
