The golfing legend had to be cut out of the vehicle at the scene on Tuesday morning (local time).

The scene of the accident

LA County Sheriff’s Department said: “The driver and sole occupant was identified as PGA golfer, Eldrick ‘Tiger’ Woods.

“Mr Woods was extricated from the wreck with the ‘jaws of life’ by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics, then transported to a local hospital by ambulance for his injuries.”

Woods’ agent – Mark Steinberg – told Golf Digest in a statement: “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.”
