“It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the tv and saw all the red shirts. To every golfer and every fan, you are truly helping me get through this tough time,” he stated in the tweet.
The seriously injured golfing championWoods was referencing numerous PGA tour golfers who wore his brand red t-shirt during the WGC-Workday Championship on Sunday.
It is hard to describe how pitiful today was when I turned on the tv and saw all the red shirts. To every golfer and every fan, you are helping me get through this tough time.
It was the first personal message of Woods following a statement shared to his Twitter account on Friday stating that he was in good spirits as he moved to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for follow-up procedures to his right leg.
The 45-year-old broke his leg and had to be cut out of the debris after his car crashed with a curb and flipped numerous times.
Analysts said Woods would have possibly died in the collision but survived as his car’s inside stayed perfect.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva declared Woods was wearing a seatbelt and there wasn’t any confirmation that he was weakened by drugs or alcohol.
“A reckless driving charge has a lot of elements into it. This is an accident,” Mr. Villanueva said.
As Woods recovered in hospital, many PGA Tour players wore his iconic final-round mixture of black pants and a redshirt.
Golfers wearing the outfit took Tony Finau, Jason Day, Tommy Fleetwood, Cameron Champ, Scottie Scheffler, Min Woo Lee, and Sebastián Muñoz.
“We’re very lucky that he’s still here,” McIlroy said to golf.com. “I feel like we should pay tribute to him every day for being on the PGA Tour and what he’s done for golf.”
