Tiger Woods, 45, is “making progress” after his scary car crash in Feb. and his fans are loving it! The professional golfer shared a joyous video to social media on Nov. 21 and it showed him hitting golf balls that were poured out of a basket with a golf club on a course. He wore a gray polo shirt and black shorts as well as a white baseball cap and white sneakers in the clip and what appeared to be a black legging around one leg.

“Making progress,” he wrote in the caption for the clip, which brought on a lot of encouraging comments from fans. “Awesome! Tiger basically had major leg surgery in last year and multiple back and knee surgeries and I could never dream of being able to swing a club like that!!” one fan wrote.

I for one didn’t think you would come back competing after your back ops Tiger, but oh man you did more than just compete… & I was sooooo wrong  ! Can’t wait to see you play again Tiger, in any shape, form, or frequency. All the best on your road to recovery ! #ComeBack,” another wrote.

Tiger’s latest video comes after he suffered “comminuted open fractures,” which included his tibia and fibula bones being shattered and broken through the skin, after a single-vehicle rollover crash in Southern California nine months ago. He had to have surgery for the injuries and also suffered smaller injuries to his ankle and foot, leading some to wonder if he’d ever play golf again.

In Oct., a source told PEOPLE that the impressive athlete was having a “remarkable recovery” despite the seriousness of his injuries. “Tiger has made a remarkable recovery in the past few months, but it’s even more significant lately,” the source said. “It’s like every day he can do more, he can handle more, the pain is less and he’s feeling better.”

Tiger was first seen on a golf course last month when he showed up to one in Florida to watch his son Charlie, 12, compete in a junior tournament. Before that, in June, he was photographed while walking on crutches at LAX.
