Nassau (Bahamas), Nov 30 (PTI) Legendary golfer Tiger Woods on Tuesday revealed amputation was on the table and he could have lost his leg following his near-fatal car crash in February, adding that he is still a long way from competing on Tour.

Woods addressed the media for the first time since the crash in Los Angeles in February that led to shattered bones in his right leg.

"It was on the table that I may lose my leg. When I woke up, I tested it and had full weight in both my legs. So, I thought 'I didn't lose it,' that was a positive," Woods told a select group of Indian media ahead of the Hero World Challenge golf tournament. "But then after that, it was when can I get out of the hospital. They told me I have a few more procedures to go. I'm alive didn't; lose a limb, that's two big positives." "Now it is up to me to see how far I can get my strength and mobility back and I can make sure my son never beats me in the game. I know that day is coming soon," he joked.
