Tiger Woods is stealing the show on a Sunday. 

Woods shared a 3-second video of his full swing on Twitter almost exactly nine months after a single-vehicle rollover crash in February. He captioned it, "Making progress." 

Woods, 45, sustained multiple injuries in the crash that occurred in Los Angeles early on the morning of Feb. 23. He was traveling at a high speed when the vehicle left the road, rolled over and hit a tree. Woods suffered comminuted open fractures to both bones in his lower right leg that required immediate surgery, among other injuries.

The golf great called his rehab "more painful than anything I have ever experienced" in an interview with Golf Digest in May. Given the extent of the injuries, there are concerns Woods will never return to professional-level form again. 

The swing is a welcome sign. 

Woods rehab journey continues 

Woods has made few public appearances or comments since the crash. He was released from the hospital in mid-March and able to return to his home in Florida. A month later he shared a photo of himself on crutches and in a walking boot. A month after that he posted another update that he was out of the boot. 

Last month, the 15-time major winner was spotted on a golf course with a club in his hand. It was at a junior event where his son was competing. In that photo and the video he shared Sunday, Woods was in a long sleeve on his injured right leg. But there are no other physical signs of the injury to note. 

Fellow golfers have made short updates on Woods' progress and attempt to return. Justin Thomas said "he's doing well" on the "No Laying Up" podcast last week and reiterated how determined the star is in general, via Golf Channel. Davis Love III gave more insight on how the Ryder Cup team had to get Woods engaged in the competition, via Golf Channel.
