It was the first photograph of Woods since the 15-time major champion was seriously injured in a one-vehicle crash on Feb. 23 in Southern California, ESPN reported. A smiling Woods posted a photo of himself on Instagram, standing in his backyard practice area in Jupiter, Florida, with his dog, Bugs.

Woods, 45, was hospitalized for nearly a month after the crash. He had not given an update since March 16, when he announced he had returned to his South Florida home, ESPN reported.

“My course is coming along faster than I am,” Woods wrote on Instagram. “But it’s nice to have a faithful rehab partner, man’s best friend.”

According to a police report released two weeks ago, Woods was traveling at nearly twice the posted speed limit on a dangerous stretch of road. He was believed to be traveling more than 80 mph and swiped a tree at 75 mph, ESPN reported.

Woods had been recovering from a back procedure in December when he visited the Riviera Country Club to perform hosting duties at the Genesis Invitational the weekend of Feb. 20-21.

The SUV Woods was driving rolled several times, and an incident report said Woods failed to brake. He was not cited in the crash.

“We don’t contemplate any charges whatsoever in this crash,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said on Feb. 24. “This remains an accident. An accident is not a crime. They do happen, unfortunately.”

Woods, whose 82 PGA Tour victories is tied with Sam Snead with the most in tour history, suffered open fractures to both the tibia and fibula bones in his right leg after he lost control of the vehicle he was driving on a windy stretch of road in Ranchos Palos Verdes, Golf Digest reported. He had a rod inserted into the tibia to stabilize the fractures, as well as screws and pins inserted into his foot and ankle.
