Several top golfers paid tribute to Woods during the final round of The Concession, which is the first WGC event of 2021. They wore red tops and black pants, which are Woods’s signature golfing colors.
Woods remains hospitalized in Los Angeles following the shocking accident last week, where his vehicle rolled several times. The Jaws of Life were utilized to remove him from the car safely.
Friday, Woods was transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to undergo “follow-up procedures on his injuries,” according to a statement released by his team. They went on to confirm that the procedure was successful and that the golfer was in “good spirits.”
According to Dr. Anish Mahajan of Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, Woods experienced “significant orthopedic injuries to his right lower extremity.”
Tiger Woods was the only individual involved in the crash, and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s office confirmed that Woods will not face charges related to the wreck.
