5 days after professional golfer Tiger Woods sustained serious injuries in a shocking rollover accident, he has finally broken his silence with a personal statement to thank his fans and well-wishers for their support. He wrote on Twitter:

"It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the tv and saw all the red shirts."

Woods continued his message of gratitude by thanking every golfer and fan once again. He told them that they were truly helping him get through such a tough time in his life.

On February 28, several golfers at the WGC-Workday Championship, including Rory McIlroy and Patrick Reed, wore red shirts and black pants as a tribute to Woods' signature colors while playing.

The 45-year-old had the car crash early in the morning of Tuesday, February 23, in Rancho Palos Verdes, a city in South West Los Angeles.

He was the sole occupant of the vehicle and was on his way to Rolling Hills Country Club to meet NFL quarterbacks Drew Brees and Justin Herbert for a video shoot.

Woods was said to have been driving his vehicle at a relatively higher speed than normal as he traveled down a hill. Unfortunately, the accident came fast and hard.

The golfer's 2021 Genesis Tiger sustained many rollovers as he hit the center median, suddenly flew into the other lane of traffic, and eventually found himself in a nearby bush.

When first responders came to the scene, it was subsequently reported in a news conference that the injured golfer was conscious and able to communicate before he was pulled out from the wreck.

From there, he was immediately taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, where he was tested for severe injuries. The injuries were deemed non-life-threatening.

Woods suffered most of his injuries in his lower limbs with a comminuted open fracture in his right leg. He had an emergency orthopedic surgery and was transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

A recent update on the golfer's condition stated that he is recovering and in good spirits. Fans are most likely delighted to hear this as they await his return.
