Damn, that doesn’t sound good at all. A single-vehicle roll-over crash? Jaws of life to pull him out?
TMZ says he was in the region for his annual golf tournament, which was taking place at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, near Santa Monica.
“Just this week, he took photos with stars like David Spade and Dwyane Wade — and announced recent back surgery could keep him out of the upcoming Masters tournament in Augusta, Georgia.
It’s not the first time Tiger Woods has been in a high profile car accident — he crashed his SUV in a 2009 incident at his home in Florida.
In 2017, he was arrested after cops found him passed out behind the wheel of his car. Tiger said he had taken prescription medication before the accident and didn’t realize the affect the meds would have on him.”
A developing story, this one. Will update when more details come out.
Tiger Woods' agent Mark Steinberg:
"Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries. He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support."
