Golfing legend Tiger Woods was hospitalised in a hospital in Los Angeles after he suffered serious injuries to both legs as his car swerved off a road and rolled down a steep hillside, which wended up requiring rescue crews to pry him from the wreckage.

Though the injuries sustained by Woods were not believed to be life-threatening, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said at a news conference hours later, adding that Tiger Woods was conscious and “able to communicate” when the rescue personnel arrived.

Tiger Woods who is the 15-time major champion did not appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol during the early-morning incident and subsequently underwent a surgery after the roll-over collision, told the Los Angeles County Sheriff.

Since the Twitter account of the former President of the USA, Donald Trump, has been suspended, he had tweeted through an associate a get-well message for golfer Tiger Woods following a serious car accident in California.

“Get well soon, Tiger. You are a true champion!” Trump said in a quote shared on Twitter by his spokesman and adviser Jason Miller.

Trump predicted that Tiger Woods, his occasional golfing partner, will recover from severe injuries suffered in a Tuesday car crash and return to the PGA Tour.

“He will be back. I have no doubt about it. He will be back,” Trump told Fox News on Tuesday.

Barack Obama also prayed for the speedy recovery of the ‘GOAT’.

Barack Obama wrote, “Sending my prayers to @TigerWoods and his family tonight—here’s to a speedy recovery for the GOAT of golf. If we’ve learned anything over the years, it’s to never count Tiger out.”
