It has been less than a month since Tiger Woods’ nearly fatal car crash, but the pro-golfer is already aggressive in making deals that may forward his career.

The 15-time major championship golfer recently signed a huge deal with the video game company 2K to appear in its famous game franchise, “PGA Tour.”

2K also announced its acquisition of “PGA Tour 2K21's” developer, HB Studios Multimedia Ltd. Woods said that the deal is something to look forward to as he previously appeared in golf video games. He said:

“I’m honored to take part in this opportunity and look forward to sharing my expertise and insights as we build the future of golf video games together.”

Woods will take on the role as an Executive Director and consultant for the golf video game and will be granted rights for his name and appear in the game franchise.

Because of the accident, the athlete needed to learn how to walk again through several therapy sessions.

Meanwhile, 2K will collaborate with the golfer’s TGR Foundation to offer students college-access programs and award-winning STEM curricula.

“In golf, there is no bigger icon than Tiger Woods,” 2K President David Ismailer said, adding that he and his employees are devastated over the unfortunate accident that happened last month.

Woods met in an accident in February near Rolling Hills Estates that had his car flying several feet away. Two of the golfer’s main leg bones broke through his skin and needed immediate surgery.

Because of the accident, the athlete needed to learn how to walk again through several therapy sessions and follow-up surgeries. However, Woods is now back home and recovering.

According to the 11-time PGA Tour Player of the Year, he will be working hard to restore his strength until he returns to his full capacity or even better.

He also thanked his fans for the love and support they showed on social media, as well as the doctors, nurses, and staff who attended to Woods during his time of need.
