Tiger Woods recovering after surgery on ‘significant’ injury

Tiger Woods is “awake, responsive and recovering in his hospital room” after surgery on “significant” right leg injuries following a car crash.

“We thank everyone for the overwhelming support and messages during this tough time,” an official statement read.

“As previously communicated Tiger was involved in a single-car accident early this morning in California. He has undergone a long surgical procedure on his lower right leg and ankle after being brought to the hospital.”

“He is currently awake, responsive, and recovering in his hospital room.”

Woods survived “what would otherwise have been a fatal crash” because the interior of his vehicle remained largely intact, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva.
