I read fractures in both legs and shattered ankle. Not good if accurate.

Tiger is Snake Bit. I think this probably ends his chance to overtake Jack Nicklaus in major championships. Tiger is tied with Sam Snead both have 82 PGA tour wins and at 45 years old getting 83 is going to be difficult. Hoping he has a quick recovery and is playing again soon!

From reports this morning his condition is improving.....based on the look of the car he's lucky to be alive. That looked like a nasty crash.

Tiger has a whole history involving crashing vehicles... Took him a decade to come back from the 2009 events.


Wish him speedy recovery and I hope this is not the end of his professional golf story but it may very well be with the serious injuries.

Perhaps time to reevaluate things and hire a professional chauffeur.

Sorry but there is a good chance that he brought this on himself. My Mom loves him and I used to until I saw him in person at Sherwood Country Club. He was not friendly with the HUGE fan base and showed his temper when things didn't go right. It was a big turn off for me plus he is a sponsor for Nike a known beneficiary of child and forced labor in Southeast Asia.

This whole Tiger Woods adoration thing is total bs.

This is the third ‘accident’ he’s had - never been charged in any of them.

All but this one involved substance abuse of prescription drugs, and I’m betting if they gave him a blood test the truth would be told. But they didn’t because, well, he is Tiger Woods.

Ambien in 2009 after 5-Iron attack by his wife. Or was it a 1-iron? Wait, that’s God’s iron. Must have been a 5. No DUI !

Prescription pain killers in 2017 accident. No DUI !

Woods’ good fortune lies in the fact he hasn’t killed anyone, including himself.

Yet.
