Tiger Woods, who was badly injured in a car accident in February, has been photographed back on the golf course.

A post shared on Twitter by TWLegion shows Woods with his son Charlie. Woods is wearing a sleeve on his right leg and leaning on a club.

“BACK ON THE COURSE — Tiger Woods was seen this weekend in Florida watching his son compete at a junior event. TW was wearing a sleeve on his right leg & golf clothes on the range with a club in hand. First sighting in quite some time,” TWLegion wrote.

Another post showed a closeup of Woods’ leg.

Woods, 45, was driving along a windy and steep stretch of road in southern California on Feb. 23 when he crossed the median and two lanes of oncoming traffic before striking a tree and rolling the vehicle over at least once, coming to rest 400 feet away in a ravine.

The golfer may have been distracted or fallen asleep at the wheel of the luxury SUV he was driving, according to a report that cites forensic car accident experts, USA Today reported.

“To me, this is like a classic case of falling asleep behind the wheel, because the road curves and his vehicle goes straight,” Jonathan Cherney, a consultant who serves as an expert witness in court cases, told the newspaper. Other experts concurred.

“The same experts also say the evidence does not indicate he lost control of his vehicle because of excessive speed on a curved downhill road that is known for speeding cars. They arrived at this theory based on several factors, especially the way Woods’ vehicle appeared to keep going straight ahead instead of staying on the road as it curved right,” USA Today wrote.

The 15-time major champion suffered devastating injuries in the one-car accident and underwent several surgeries to fix the compound fractures in his leg suffered during the rollover.

In March, law enforcement sources reportedly said they believe Woods never hit the brakes as he crossed a median and two lanes of oncoming traffic before careening down a ravine last month.

“… [I]nvestigators believe Tiger did nothing to prevent the crash once he lost control of the vehicle,” TMZ reported. “Sources with direct knowledge say investigators have looked at various videos … from the hotel where he started the ill-fated drive to various surveillance cameras along the way,” TMZ wrote, adding that “the evidence indicates he accelerated and was speeding when he lost control.”

Also in March, more than half a dozen professional golfers wore Tiger’s Sunday outfit — black pants, red shirt — during the last round of the WCG-Workday Championship in Florida, prompting Woods to make his first comments since his crash.

“It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the tv and saw all the red shirts,” the 45-year-old Woods wrote Sunday on Twitter from his hospital bed.  “To every golfer and every fan, you are truly helping me get through this tough time.”
