On February 23, 2021, the famous golfer Tiger Woods was in a car accident. Tiger was in a one-car crash meaning he was the only one involved in the accident. First responders say that Tiger ran off the road, but they don’t know what caused it. Tiger was at a tournament in California that was sponsored by Genesis. The car was one that the tournament provided for all of the players and people involved in the tournament.

According to different sources, Tiger suffered fractures in the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula in his right leg. Many have been wondering if Tiger would ever walk and play golf ever again. Just around 3 months ago, Tiger underwent his 5th back surgery. so he really hasn’t even had a chance to be fully recovered.

Many are comparing Tiger’s crash to famous golfer Ben Hogan’s crash. Ben’s crash essentially shattered the left side of his body in 1949. Many are hopeful because after Hogan’s crash he won 6 more major championships to add to his 3 already.

On February 28, 2021, a lot of PGA showed their love for Tiger by wearing “Victory Red” shirts as Tiger always wears on Sundays.
