Tiger Woods speaks out for first time in touching message after horror crash


The 15-time major champion issued a message to his six and a half million followers on Twitter. Woods, 45, wears a signature red shirt and fellow golfers, led by Rory McIlroy, paid tribute to this on Sunday.

McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood and Cameron Champ sported red during the last round of the World Golf Championship.

Writing on Twitter, Woods said: “It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the tv and saw all the red shirts.

“To every golfer and every fan, you are truly helping me get through this tough time.”

Woods sustained several injuries including two open fractures during a single-car accident.

The incident took place near the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes, about 30 miles south of downtown Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The golf legend was transferred on Saturday to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre following a surgical procedure.

His management gave an update on Saturday in a statement also shared on his Twitter account.

His representatives wrote: “Tiger has moved to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre and received follow-up procedures on his injuries this morning.

“The procedures were successful, and he is now recovering and in good spirits.

“Tiger and his family want to thank you all for the wonderful support and messages they have received over the past few days. We will not have any further updates at this time.

“Thank you for your continued privacy. – TGR.”
