Tiger Woods suffered multiple leg injuries and underwent surgery Tuesday after being involved in a single-car, rollover accident near Los Angeles.
Los Angeles County Fire Department spokesman Christopher Thomas told USA TODAY Sports that the fire department arrived on scene shortly before 7:30 a.m. First responders removed the vehicle's windshield, he said, and pulled out the vehicle's only occupant – Woods – who was then transported to a local hospital.
"He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support," Woods' longtime agent Mark Steinberg told Golfweek.
Woods, a 15-time major winner, is one of the most decorated golfers of all time (82 career victories). His last major victory, at The Masters in 2019, was his first in 10 years.
Here is the latest information regarding the accident and Woods’ condition.
