February 23, 2021 at 11:55 am

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Golfer Tiger Woods was hospitalized after his car rolled over Tuesday in the Rancho Palos Verdes area, authorities said.

The crash was reported just after 7 a.m. when sheriff’s officials responded to a single-vehicle rollover traffic collision on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and the Rancho Palos Verdes, according to an LASD statement.

Sheriff’s officials say the car was traveling northbound on Hawthorne Boulevard at Blackhorse Road when it crashed and sustained “major damage”.

The driver – later identified as Woods – had to be extricated from the vehicle with the “jaws of life” and was then transported to a hospital with unspecified injuries.

Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg released this statement Tuesday morning: “Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries. He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support.”

He must have been hauling some serious a**! The front of the car is. Gone.... stub rails gone, and they're high strength steel. Wheels sheared at the control arms-he was flying to obliterate the front of the vehicle that completely. Engine and trans shifted completely under the vehicle. Looks like a toyota highlander-its a wonder he's alive.

Neither here nor there.
That's a fair guess.

Even so, ESPN will still be reporting on how he's performing in a tournament BEFORE they mention who's actually winning it...
I've watched a couple of the last tournaments, Tiger is getting old, and I mean really old, as far as pro golf is concerend.
