At the very least, Tiger Woods could laugh about it as he continued to heal at home following the tragic accident in February 2021 that left him with life-threatening injuries.
After rehabbing at his spectacular £41 million mansion in the posh Jupiter Island area, he made his astounding golf comeback at the Masters, and he has since participated in the PGA Championship and The Open.
Prior to that, he admitted during his first news appearance following the incident that he was having trouble navigating his enormous mansion.
“I constructed a really magnificent house, but until you start using crutches, I didn’t realize how huge it was. Although I am on the plus side of things, I still have a ways to go, Woods said.
“Being motionless for three months has been challenging; it’s difficult to put into words. Simply getting outside was something I was looking forward to.
“I was simply eager to leave the house. I eventually reached a stage where they could wheel me outside and I could feel the sun; that felt like a major accomplishment.
The £41 mιllιon property is divided into two parts: a multipurpose building of 6,400 square feet and dwelling quarters at 3,300 square feet.
The latter is a large building with a top-notch gym, a movie room, a wine cellar, and a lift. There is also a guesthouse, a garage, and a substantial mooring for his boats, and a glass-covered walkway connects the two buildings.
Father of two Woods has his own private oxygen therapy room, underground game room, and private cinema where he can relax. The lavish residence was built in 2010, as his divorce from his ex-wife Elin Nordegren was being finalized.
Erica Herman, his girlfriend, who overcame golf’s drawbacks to pull off one of the greatest comebacks in sports history, can now spend time there. His home is on Jupiter Island in Florida, a community with just under 900 residents and one of the wealthiest areas in the region.
His palatial residence is right close to his restaurant, The Woods. There has been dining there by Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, and Rickie Fowler, which is marketed as a “legendary sports bar experience”.
