Tiger Woods injured in single-vehicle car accident, according to Los Angeles police

Doctors had to insert a rod into his leg and placed screws into his foot and ankle, according to the statement, which described Woods as "awake, responsive and recovering".

According to Golf Digest, Woods had been participating in a "two-day content shoot" with Golf Digest/GOLFTV.

Woods has always been superhuman on the golf course, but the last few years - the 2019 Masters aside - have shown him to be as human as the rest of us.

Woods won the 2008 US Open at Torrey Pines on a broken leg, downing Rocco Mediate in an 18-hole playoff, and won six 2019 titles but lost a major for the first time when leading after 54 holes at the 2009 PGA Championship. He was to spend Monday and Tuesday filming with Discovery-owned GOLFTV, with whom he has an endorsement. On Monday, a smiling Woods spent time with retired National Basketball Association star Dwyane Wade and comedian David Spade - both of whom documented the gathering on social media - at Rolling Hills Country Club. He also worked with National Basketball Association great Dwyane Wade, who posted a video to his Instagram account. Authorities confirmed, per Villanueva, that weather was "not a factor" in the crash, which prompted a second, minor traffic accident as another motorist took in the sight of Woods's wreck. "I'm a little bit stiff". And I took a nap, and I woke up to the news.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family", Rosso said. He did not compete in the event as he was recovering from a back surgery he underwent in December. Woods also has a 13-year-old daughter.

Woods had brought a youthful excitement and fitness emphasis unseen among golfers, delivering imaginative shotmaking and a big-driving game that put him among the greatest champions the sport had ever known.

"I'm sick to my stomach", said Justin Thomas, one of the younger players whom Woods has embraced. Man, I just hope he's all right.

He also referred to the United Kingdom variant of Covid as "a new virus, almost", and blamed it for the position we are now in. In his address Mr Martin said the Government is anxious to ensure that things remain open whenever restrictions are eased.

The crash happened about 7:15 a.m. on a sweeping, downhill stretch of a two-lane road through upscale suburbs.

Firefighters and paramedics had to use the "jaws of life" to free the golf legend from his vehicle, a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department statement said.

Gonzalez said his department regularly patrols that stretch of road for speeding enforcement, often clocking violators going 80 miles per hour - almost double the 45-mph speed limit. Authorities did not say how fast Woods was driving.

A neighbor, whose house had an elevated view above where Woods's vehicle came to rest, heard the crash and called the police, and officers were on the scene within minutes. Woods said he had a bad reaction to prescription medicine for back pain. He said he had not realised how prescription drugs he was taking might interact and later pleaded guilty to reckless driving.

An inspiration to millions, a fascinating character and a tragic hero, Woods has always been able to come back - from myriad injuries and surgeries, from a front-page infidelity scandal, and from the loss of his father.

Speaking at the weekend, Woods said he hoped to be able to contest the Masters in April following a microdiscectomy to relieve a pressurised disc fragment in January.

The resident usually avoids the intersection of Hawthorne Boulevard and Blackhorse Road, "because people will run the light, and I could get nailed making my left turn up here".
