The golf superstar, Tiger Woods is recuperating and in “good spirits” after the second day of treatment at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre following his horrific accident that left him with serious leg injuries.
Tiger Woods was transferred to Cedars-Sinai on Wednesday night after undergoing emergency surgery on Tuesday at Harbor-UCLA Medical Centre to fix compound fractures sustained in each leg in addition to a shattered ankle.
A statement on Woods’ Twitter account said,
“Tiger and his family want to thank you all for the wonderful support and messages they have received over the past few days,” “We will not have any further updates at this time. Thank you for your continued privacy.”
The 15-time major champion was driving alone Tuesday morning in a south Los Angeles suburb when his SUV hit the centre median, went into the opposing lane, hit a tree and then fell over several times.
However, Friday’s statement did not specify the type of follow up treatment Woods is receiving at Cedars-Sinai which is located about 15 kilometres west of Los Angeles and is renowned for treating Hollywood’s rich and famous.
Woods’ surgery included fixing a rod into Woods’s shinbone and the use of “a combination of screws and pins” to make his foot and ankle stable.
The Guardian reported that, Los Angeles County Sheriff, Alex Villanueva stated on Wednesday that there will be no charges for Woods related to the crash.
“This remains an accident. Accident is not a crime. They do happen, unfortunately”.
Woods has the record of the second most major championships in history behind Jack Nicklaus’ 18. He has 82 PGA Tour victories which are the same with Sam Snead for the all-time record.
