Los Angeles County Sheriffs confirmed that golf pro Tiger Woods has been hospitalized following a single-car rollover crash on Tuesday morning. Woods was removed using the “jaws of life” and the car sustained “major damage,” according to the statement. There were no other people or cars involved in the crash, according to department officials.

What We Know:

  • 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.
  • Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department responded to the incident and released the following statement:

 

  • 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.
  • Woods was arrested in Florida, May 2017 for DUI.  A toxicology report says that five different drugs were traced in his system: Hydrocodone, an opioid pain medication; Hydromorphone, another type of painkiller; Alprazolam, an anxiety drug also under the brand name Xanax; Zolpidem, a sleep drug also under the brand name Ambien; and Delta-9 carboxy THC, which is found in marijuana.  Woods said in a statement that he had been trying to treat his back pain and insomnia on his own with the help of doctors: ‘I realize now it was a mistake.’
