Lots of speculation there. 😉
I don't think there have been any people who have stated categorically what they KNOW will happen. The consensus would be that the implications are dire with regard to a return to top level competitive golf and pretty much everyone hopes that he will be able to return to some semblance of normality sooner rather than later. Most people have focused on Tiger the person rather than Tiger the golfer, which I think is pretty fair and reasonable.
Also, he has more than a "broken leg and fractured ankle". Those terms cover a wide range, obviously, but this was no minor accident.
The topic of the thread invited people to speculate, as you have done.
I think it's all pretty moot, anyway. I would speculate that the last thing he would want to do would be to be seen as a charity case or a freak show "wildcard" tournament entry and shoot 86 and then withdraw. I don't think people have said that a return would CAUSE further major injury, it's a question of whether the current injuries will prevent a serious return to COMPETITIVE tournament play which is the only thing that interests him with regard to his presence at a tournament as a player. (I think)
I always laugh when something like this happens and all the interweb know-it-alls start speculating... "he'll be in a wheelchair for the next 12 months!" - over a broken leg and fractured ankle? He will not be in a wheelchair for a year, he's not paralyzed. "He needs to retire, no need to risk his health!" - what, given his injury history already, could he possibly do playing GOLF that would debilitate him permanently? And yes, I'm well aware of how golf can screw up a persons body given the amount of muscles used... but still, coming back and playing golf, at worst, could only likely result in an additional injury that *might* at *worst* actually end his playing days as a competitor. It's not like returning to golf is going to put him in a wheelchair permanently from trying to smoke a drive. At this point, I hope he recovers fully, and I do hope that if he can, he returns to playing golf. If not, so be it. But who am I to say or anyone else here "no need to risk your health Tiger, retire!"

Not at all. I am being completely serious. Tiger Woods is the biggest drawcard in golf and will remain so. Are you suggesting that there are tournament directors that would choose not to have Tiger in the field if he wanted to be there? And, remember, the only reason he would have for wanting to be there is that he feels fit and able to compete and contend. Why would my comment be sarcastic? Just wondering.....
When it comes to Tiger Woods, there will be no "official" lists or expiry dates.
