He had crashed his car in 2009, his infidelity was aired out publicly, he was arrested for a DUI and sought inpatient treatment out of state twice and had four back surgeries. This all lead to his hiatus from professional golf, with many saying that his days of being a pro golfer were over.
Tiger achieved so much at such a young age and now, his career was thought of as being finished; that it was a part of history. Fast forward to April 15th of this year, Woods won the masters again (his first win in 11 years). This win has been called “one of the greatest comebacks in golf history”. Tiger took to Instagram to share two images of his victory with the caption that read, “I can’t thank my family, friends and fans enough for their support. Having my family by my side today is something I will never forget. To not only be able to play again, but to be able to win again, is something I will forever be grateful for. This jacket sure is comfortable”.
The staff here at Banyan Treatment Center are so proud of Tiger for this accomplishment and are inspired by his persistence to succeed. Tiger’s comeback and achievement goes to show that no matter what, you, too, can overcome any obstacle and come out on top. You can better yourself for you and your family. No matter what people are saying, publicly or not, you have to do what is best for you. People are always going to have their opinions, but it is up to you on how you react to them and how you move on from that.
If you or a loved one are struggling with substance abuse or mental health, you are not alone. You can get help and Banyan Treatment Center can get on the path to become the best version of yourself.
