Tiger Woods vows not to let car crash finish his golf career, telling pals 'It can’t end like this'

TIGER Woods vowed not to let his car crash finish his career, telling pals: “It can’t end like this.”

The stricken golf superstar, 45, insisted that if he can play again, he will.

Tiger made the pledge as his girlfriend Erica Herman, agent Mark Steinberg and caddie Joe LaCava visited him at a medical centre in Los Angeles.

Cops said Tiger has “no recollection” of the crash which left him facing months of rehab after having a metal rod, pins and screws inserted into his right leg and shattered ankle.

A source close to Tiger said the ace was “frustrated” and told People magazine: “He doesn’t want his career to end like this.

“If there’s any way at all he can continue playing, he will.”

Dad-of-two Tiger was looking to return to action this year after back surgery.

The source added: “This is a massive setback, and he knows it, but he’s overcome obstacles in the past and thinks he can do it again.”

Woods will not face charges over his crash — which police said was “purely an accident”.

They found no evidence that his driving was impaired.

He was dashing to a TV shoot at a country club near Los Angeles on Monday morning.

He allegedly cut up a TV director before his Genesis GV80 4×4 careered off a winding road, across the opposite carriageway and into a hillside.

The Sun told yesterday how Tiger’s family fear he may get hooked on painkillers again during his lengthy recovery.
