Tiger Woods was in a one-car accident that left his car badly damaged so badly they had to extricat6e Woods with the jaws of life. He was taken to the hospital with severe injuries to both legs, where he has been operated on. Mark Steinberg, Woods’ agent verified the information on Tiger’s injuries and current condition. That info0rmation will be updated as he continues to recover. His injuries are not at this time considered to be life-threatening.

According to a statement from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department:

“The driver and sole occupant was identified as PGA golfer, Eldrick ‘Tiger’ Woods. Mr. Woods was extricated from the wreck with the ‘jaws of life’ by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics, then transported to a local hospital by ambulance for his injuries.”

Woods, 45, was in California for a two-day content shoot with Golf Digest/GOLFTV after serving as host for the PGA Tour’s Genesis Invitational over the weekend. Pictures surfaced on social media of Woods smiling with Dwayne Wade and David Spade at Rolling Hills Country Club on Monday, but with his movement still restricted, he did not hit balls or play any holes.

The shoot involved Woods giving on-course lessons to a number of celebrities, but he mostly provided instruction and hit a few putts. He was in good spirits on Monday but did not arrive to the course for the second day of shooting.

On Sunday, Woods told CBS’ Jim Nantz that he was awaiting the results of an upcoming MRI before he could ramp up practicing and training for a return to competition.
Woods last competed alongside his son at the PNC Championship, which finished on Dec. 20 in Orlando. He then underwent a microdiscectomy procedure to remove a pressurized disc fragment that was pinching a nerve. It was his fifth back surgery overall and the first since his spinal fusion in April 2017.The police told TMZ that alcohol was not a factor in the accident. Woods previously had an accident near his home after a fight with his wife who later divorced Tiger.
