The Tiger Woods group says he is awake, responsive, and recovering from his automobile accident
It was revealed yesterday that Tiger Woods was involved in a car accident that required an operation. On Wednesday, his team released a statement thanking everyone for their support and providing an update on his condition.
They said he had surgery on his right lower leg and ankle after being rushed to UCLA Medical Center. Dr. Speaking about his injuries, Anish Mahajan said Tiger “sustained orthopedic injuries to his right lower extremity.” His injuries were further described as “comminuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower parts of the tibia and fibula”.
They were stabilized by inserting a rod into his tibia. He injured the bones in the foot and ankle and they were stabilized with both screws and pins.

His team says he is currently awake, reacting, and recovering in his hospital room.
As previously reported, the accident occurred on Tuesday 20 miles south of downtown Los Angeles on the border of the communities of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes. Tiger was alone in his vehicle at the time of the accident, and a large amount of damage was done to the car, which has been described as having to be “jawed” to get out of the car.
Many celebrities sent their prayers to Tiger after the news of his accident.
