Born on December 30, 1975, Eldrick Tont Woods, known as Tiger Woods, is an American professional golfer. Tiger is tied for first in PGA Tour wins, is second in men’s major championships, and has many golf records. Tiger is 45 years old and has accomplished many things in the golf world, including being elected into the World Golf Hall of Fame. Tiger went pro at 20 years old and a year later won three PGA Tour events and won the 1997 Masters with a record-breaking performance. Not even a year after turning pro, Tiger reached number one in the world and held the number one spot for 281 consecutive weeks.

 

Although Tiger Woods is one of the best golfers ever to live, taking care of his body is something he does not do well. Over his career, Tiger has had 11 accidents. He had an ACL surgery in 2008, a car crash in 2009, a leg injury in 2011 to March 2012, back surgery in 2014, another back surgery in 2015, another back surgery during the same year, his 4th surgery in 2017, DUI in 2017, his 5th surgery in 2020, and a recent car crash. On top of this, he took a 4-month hiatus to resolve problems with his wife. Currently, Tiger is recovering in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, getting orthopedic care. Luckily Tiger is in good spirits thanks to his family for their support and thankful he’s alive.

 

On Tuesday, February 2021, Tiger got in a car crash, which resulted in him fracturing both the tibia and fibula in his right leg and lots of blood loss. Luckily Tiger is recovering well. A little before his crash, a surveillance camera got footage of Tiger driving up on Hawthorne Blvd. In the report, he was not driving exceptionally fast, and the city is held responsible for the accident. To be more specific, it shows two vehicles heading uphill, Tiger in a Genesis GV80 SUV, driving behind a minivan at 7:05 am. Based on the logo on his door, he was going to the Genesis Invitational golf tournament. He likely crashed on a big curve in a road heading downhill. It was likely that his tires lost grip while he gained speed on the turn. Officials believe that since he was wearing a seatbelt, he lived. Had he not been wearing it, he likely would have died.
