Woods has a daughter, Sam, and son, Charlie. He has spoken extensively in recent years about the importance of spending more time with them. Charlie already looks like he has the makings of a golf superstar, and the similarities he has to his father are mind-blowing.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement on Tuesday that the car Woods was driving crashed and rolled over. Footage from the scene showed Tiger’s SUV on its side and extremely damaged. You can see a photo here.
Woods’ agent said Tiger sustained multiple leg injuries and was undergoing surgery.
