Tiger cheers on the Dodgers during injury recovery

The road to recovery is proving to be a long one for Tiger Woods, with the question marks remaining over whether he will ever compete again.

But with time on his hands, Woods took in one of America’s biggest sporting events on Wednesday after cheering on the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series.

Sporting a Dodgers shirt, Woods was spotted behind the visiting dug-out in the second game of the World Series against the Houston Astros at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday.

It was the first World Series encounter he had witnessed in the flesh since the Dodgers’ last appearance in the end-of-season showpiece in 1988.

The former world number one grew up in Orange County – around 30 miles away from Dodger Stadium. His late father, Earl, was responsible for teaching him golf, as well as taking him to the baseball.

However, Woods’ presence among dozens of celebrities in the crowd didn’t prove lucky for the Dodgers, who lost 7-6 in the extra innings, as the series was tied at 1-1.
