Following Tiger’s most recent and tragic accident, local fans have been keeping a close eye on the developments surrounding Woods’ injuries. While his California doctors have stabilized Tiger and say his injuries are not life-threatening, the multiple fractures to his leg, ankle and foot have many worried about the seriousness of his injuries and how it may affect Tiger’s recovery.

ORA Orthopedics’ Sports Medicine Surgeon, Dr. Ryan Dunlay, an avid golfer, has been following the developments. He was recently interviewed on the Dwyer & Michaels Morning Radio Show on 97X with Greg Dwyer and Bill Michaels, and shares his analysis and perspective on Tiger’s road ahead.
