Tiger Woods broke his silence on his recovery process from a devastating leg injury he suffered in a crash in Los Angeles in February.

Woods has mostly been seen on crutches in photos and has released updates sparingly on his recovery since the crash. This week, Woods spoke at length with Golf Digest about his rehab.

“My physical therapy has been keeping me busy. I do my routines every day and am focused on my No. 1 goal right now: walking on my own. Taking it one step at a time,” he told Golf Digest.

Woods said he appreciated the support he had been getting through the process.

“It’s been incredible,” he said. “I have had so much support from people both inside and outside of golf, which means so much to me and has helped tremendously.”

Woods didn’t comment on when he would be able to play golf again. But a recent photo showed at least one encouraging sign – he was without a walking boot.

He has not appeared at a golf event since February but has talked to fellow competitors like Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy to give them pep talks during their matches.

Woods was driving at an unsafe speed when he wrecked his vehicle in the Los Angeles area in February, authorities said in April. Woods was driving between 84 and 87 mph when he first made impact, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said during a news conference. He was driving 75 mph when the vehicle hit a tree. The posted speed limit was 45 mph.

Authorities said there was no evidence of impairment when first responders arrived. Officials said Woods had no recollection of the wreck.
