Tiger Woods in Serious Car Crash

Oh no! ...

Quote:
Golfer Tiger Woods was injured in a serious car crash in the Los Angeles area on Tuesday morning, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
The department said in a statement that Woods "was extricated from the wreck with the 'jaws of life' by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics" before being transported to a local hospital.
Woods' longtime agent, Mark Steinberg, said in a statement provided to Golfweek that the golfer suffered "multiple leg injuries."

Oh man. Never a Tiger fan re: his personal life, but was a big fan of him as a golfer. Can’t imagine him coming back from this. Just hope he can function when this is over. Was hoping to see a major or two from him but that seems gone now. Wish him well in his recovery.

No doubt. I just read that he was recovering from back surgery...ugh. That was one of my biggest fears after my DW's spinal surgery...the 1000 mile road trip back home just 4 weeks after.

Here is video of the accident scene. Doesn't look great, but could have been worse. https://www.tmz.com/videos/2021-02-2...ws-v2-1045558/

I would think Tiger’s back issues will prevent that. Medicine is marvelous and I suspect he’ll be able to golf again, but Tiger was already walking wounded.

I saw an article that mentioned that he might have to sit out the next couple of tournaments after the back surgery (prior to this accident). I would be very concerned about the accident further complicating the healing of his back. Not only to mention whatever injuries he sustained to his legs.

Oof...I didn't realize he had so many back surgeries.

It’s the fifth operation Woods, 45, has had on his back and the first since a spinal-fusion surgery in April 2017. He previously had the microdiscectomy surgery three times in 2014-15.

His back has been a problem for quite a while, even before the crash he was unable to play because of it.

Some reports say it is a compound leg fracture. In any case, surgery is involved.

As a fellow back pain sufferer, and disc surgery survivor, I really feel for him. I see nothing good from this with regard to his back. It can only make it worse.

Speaking of reporting; the speed to which TMZ reports these things is...well, wow. They have already posted EMS dispatch audio.

Was always a big fan of Tiger. Sounds serious- could be tibia/fibia type injuries.

While golfing the other day we were discussing whether it made sense for Tiger to continue on after his latest back surgery, have a feeling this will be the final nail in the coffin to any future serious golf from him.

Big Tiger fan here and hoping for the best. No doubt any chance for another major is pretty much history. He can still be a great ambassador for the game.

If he can't golf, he could always be a marriage counselor.

News said his car was going too fast without down a known dangerous road. Said he might have a shattered ankle as one of the leg injuries. News said good thing the airbags deployed or could have been even worse.

After seeing the two part special about his life on HBO I think, I have a different opinion on Tiger. Earl Woods messed him up severely. Tiger was a fun likable goofy kid in his early years but the awful example set by Earl really severely and deeply damaged Tiger. I feel sorry for him now as in some respects he was never allowed to be a normal kid and IMHO never really had a chance at being a normal well adjusted human being. All the money and fame simply wasnít worth it IMHO...
