Players pay tribute to Tiger by wearing his Sunday colors


Many around the professional golf world are rallying to show their support for one of the game’s greats on Sunday.

During the final round of the World Golf Championships-Workday Championship at The Concession in Bradenton, Florida, about 20 percent of the field paid tribute to Woods, who was involved in a single-vehicle rollover car crash on Tuesday.

Billy Horschel had “TW” written on his cap while Matt Kuchar, Jason Day and Bryson DeChambeau played with golf balls stamped with “TIGER.”

Day, Rory McIlroy, Tony Finau, Patrick Reed, Tommy Fleetwood, Scottie Scheffler, Carlos Ortiz and Cameron Champ each wore black slacks and dark red golf shirts – Woods’ traditional Sunday attire. Other shirts were of lighter red tones, including those worn by Justin Thomas and Cameron Smith.

“I don’t wear it as good as he does,” McIlroy said, “but it’ll be all right.”

Dr. Anish Mahajan, interim CEO and chief medical officer of Harbor-UCLA, announced Thursday night that Woods had been transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center “for continuing orthopedic care and recovery.”

The show of support for Woods on Sunday also came from the maintenance staff at the PGA Tour’s Puerto Rico Open.
