Tiger Woods has posted a video of him hitting golf balls for the first time since his dramatic car accident in February, raising hopes for a return to the sport.

Updates on his health and recovery have been few and far between, but now he seems to be well enough to hit balls again.
Tiger Woods posted a video of him hitting balls for the first time since his car accident in February.
Although he wears a protective cast on his right leg, he still has his trademark swing.
Woods posted a video for his 2.7 million followers on Instagram, simply titled: ‘Progresando’, with more than 850,000 likes and almost 9,000 comments already.
The clip shows the 45-year-old man in a protective cast on his right leg, but still showing that characteristic soft swing.
The American icon has hardly been seen since the accident, but was photographed last month watching his son play in an encouraging sight for fans of the sport.

The photos of him walking with his girlfriend Erica without the help of crutches suggest that he can now enjoy at least one quality of life, the first item on his wish list once the shocking photographs of the car accident appeared.
Although golf fans have heard about the inspiring role he played behind the scenes at the Ryder Cup and saw some nostalgic footage about the 25th anniversary of his first tour win in Las Vegas, watching him play is heartening.
However, it would be a sinister sign regarding any foreseeable prospect of a return to the tournament if he were unable to return before his 46th birthday.
