Los Angeles – Golf legend Tiger Woods has been transferred to a Los Angeles medical facility for further treatment, according to a statement from hospital where he underwent surgery for serious leg injuries after his car crash.
“Mr. Tiger Woods was transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for continuing orthopaedic care and recovery,” said Anish Maharaj, CEO of the hospital where Woods was first taken.
“On behalf of our staff, it was an honour to provide orthopaedic trauma care to one of our generation’s greatest athletes.
Woods was driving alone Tuesday morning in a Los Angeles suburb on a road notorious for accidents when his SUV hit the centre median, crossed into the opposing lane, struck a tree and then rolled over several times.
He underwent surgery to repair “significant orthopedic injuries” to his lower right leg and ankle.
Wood’s latest injuries have cast doubt on whether he’ll be able to compete at the top level again.
The crash comes two months after he underwent his fifth back operation.
The most Woods could face would be a low-level offence known as infraction if investigators conclude that he was speeding or not paying attention.
