Tiger Woods remained in a Los Angeles’ Harbor-UCLA Medical Center on Wednesday following surgery for injuries suffered in a one-car roll-over crash.
The timeline from his weekend as host of the Genesis Invitational tournament through Wednesday includes extensive amounts of golf, long surgeries and the beginning of a difficult rehab period.
Last week, as the tournament activities ramped up, Woods tweeted support for his fellow pros, referencing the tough 10th hole.
“Good luck tomorrow guys. Will miss competing with you this week, but I look forward to seeing you at Riv. Watch out for #10.”
Woods watched the action at Riviera, tweeting a promotional effort seven minutes before CBS coverage began.
“Looking forward to being in the booth today with Jim Nantz and watch a champion be crowned @thegenesisinv. Tune in to CBS at 2pm PST.”
Woods said during the broadcast his back issues could keep him out of this year’s Masters in April.
Woods offered hearty congratulations to Max Homa – among Woods’ biggest fans – after Homa won the tournament on the second playoff hole.
According to Golf Digest, Woods was at Rolling Hills Country Club in Rolling Hills Estates, a few miles from where he would crash his car the next day.
A Fox News report said the appearance was for a Discovery Networks program involving Woods’ golf tips for celebrities.
Those on hand with Woods included David Spade, Dwyane Wade and Jada Pinkett Smith.
Woods reportedly had an early call for the Discovery show, with the plan to play golf with New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert.
Reports indicated he may have been running late.
The time of his crash was 7:12 a.m. PST.
LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said that Woods was driving at a “relatively greater speed than normal” when the crash occurred, adding Woods’ car hit a center divider and flew several hundred feet.
He added that there was no evidence of impairment when emergency personnel arrived.
Woods was driving a Genesis GV80, the Hyundai luxury brand’s only SUV, according to a company spokesperson’s email to USA Today.
Following surgery Tuesday night, Woods’ representatives reported Woods to be “awake, responsive and recovering in his hospital room.”
Worldwide, fans and admirers from Eric Trump to Barack Obama offered well wishes via social media.
