US Golfer Tiger Woods In Hospital After Major Car Crash

American golfer Tiger Woods in hospital after serious car crash

Los Angeles:

US golfer Tiger Woods was hospitalized on Tuesday after a car crash in which his vehicle sustained “significant damage,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

Woods, the sole occupant, was removed from the wreckage by firefighters and paramedics and sustained “multiple leg injuries,” his agent said in a statement to US media.

“He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support,” said Mark Steinberg.

Woods was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

The rollover accident near Los Angeles did not involve any other vehicle. Television footage showed the car lying on a patch of grass off the road, with its hood badly damaged.


Woods, one of the most successful golfers of all time, has won 15 major golf championships.

He recently had his fifth back surgery and said he was not sure he could play in the next Masters, which he last won in 2019.

According to famous website TMZ, Woods, 45, was in the area for his annual Genesis Invitational golf tournament at the Riviera Country Club.
