Tiger Gives Update on College Teammate Casey Martin
Following his round at the PNC Championship, Tiger Woods took some time to give an update on his Stanford teammate Casey Martin.
As GolfNewsRI reported, Martin, who is the head golf coach of Oregon, suffers from Klippel-Trenaunay-Weber syndrome, which restricts circulation in the lower portion of his right leg and make it nearly impossible for him to walk 18 holes.
He had his leg amputated back in October.
“We were all so thankful that the procedure turned out as well as it did. He didn’t lose as much of the femur as the doctors were thinking going into the procedure,” said Woods.
He added, “Still in rough shape. It still hurts quite a bit, but what he’s gone through his entire life and the amount of pain that he’s lived in daily, people have no idea how much pain that guy has lived in and how tough he is mentally and physically.”
Tiger and his son Charlie are currently tied for fourth at the PNC Championship in Florida.
Casey Martin is getting ready to lead Oregon into the 2022 college golf season.
