CAPE TOWN - Images of Tiger Woods’ damaged SUV left the sports world to ponder whether we will ever see the superstar golfer in action again.

Woods was driving alone last Tuesday in a Los Angeles suburb on a road notorious for accidents when his car hit the centre median, crossed into the opposing lane, struck a tree and then rolled over several times.

The 15-time major champion underwent surgery to repair "significant orthopedic injuries" to his lower right leg and ankle.

This included the insertion of a rod into Woods's shin bone and the use of "a combination of screws and pins" to stabilise his foot and ankle.

The speculation about Woods’ future was one of most talked about stories on IOL Sport this past week.
