Tiger Woods has been released from a Los Angeles hospital where he was treated after a car crash last month, according to a post on Tuesday to his Twitter account that said the golfer was recovering at home.

The authorities have continued to investigate the cause of the single-vehicle crash that sent Woods to the hospital on Feb. 23, when the S.U.V. he was driving crashed onto a hillside along a tricky stretch of road in Los Angeles County.

“I will be recovering at home and working on getting stronger every day,” the Twitter post on Tuesday read. The post did not contain updates on his condition, and a representative for Woods could not be reached immediately.

Woods was taken to Harbor-U.C.L.A. Medical Center in Los Angeles on the day of the crash and underwent emergency surgery to repair serious injuries to his right leg.

He was transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on the evening of Feb. 25.

The morning after Woods’s arrival at Cedars-Sinai, he received “follow-up procedures on his injuries,” which were deemed successful, according to a statement from Woods’s Twitter account.

Dr. Anish Mahajan, the acting chief executive of Harbor-U.C.L.A., said in a statement the night after the crash that both bones in Woods’s lower right leg, the tibia and fibula, had been broken in multiple places and were “open fractures,” meaning they pierced his skin.

Dr. Mahajan said doctors had “stabilized” the breaks by placing a rod in the tibia. He said that additional bones in Woods’s ankle and foot were also injured and that they has been “stabilized with a combination of screws and pins.”

The statement did not describe any injuries to Woods’s left leg, though Daryl L. Osby, the county fire chief, had said earlier that Woods had “serious injuries” to both legs. The chief did not explain further and said he was not sure what other injuries Woods might have sustained.

Doctors not involved in Woods’s care predicted an extremely difficult recovery from his injuries.
