“You have all taken such great care of me and I cannot thank you enough,” he wrote. “I will be recovering at home and working on getting stronger every day.”
Woods, who lives in Florida, was in the Southland at the time of the crash for the Genesis Invitational golf tournament at The Riviera Country Club.
Following the Feb. 23 crash, Woods was taken to Harbor-UCLA where he underwent surgery for multiple fractures to his right leg and ankle. He was later transferred to Cedars for follow-up procedures.
