Perhaps it’d be better suited to the off-topic board.

Yes agreed, but still an incredible athlete.

Per CNN ...

Tiger Woods suffered "multiple leg injuries" and is currently in surgery following a car accident in California, his agent Mark Steinberg told Golf Digest on Tuesday.

Woods suffered moderate to critical injuries after being pulled from his car in following a rollover crash in Rancho Palos Verdes, according to Los Angeles County Fire Department spokesperson Henry Narvez.

I'm not a Tiger fan but I hope he recovers quickly and fully.  We'll all find out what happened later so no point speculating.

You are probably correct.
The description of the condition of his legs after the accident, do not sound good.

Morbid but that was my first thought as well.

He'll never overcome Nicklaus as the greatest imo. But I wish him the best for recovery, he's done some crappy things as a person but seems to have gotten his act together recently.

According to one of my teachers who is also a firefighter, the 'jaws of life' aren't really a big deal anymore. They're used in a lot of car accidents so I don't think this is as serious as it seems, but it could still be a big deal.

Based on the reporting so far, it sounds like there's a good chance that like a previous incident, legitimately prescribed pain medication may have played a part here. You'd think that under the circumstances, he'd have used some of his well-gotten gains to hire himself a chauffeur until he had fully recovered from his back surgery, but he probably underestimated how much the pain meds were impairing his driving ability.

Just to be clear, I'm not alleging or even suggesting he wasn't using pain medication as intended, just that he wasn't giving proper respect to its potential side effects. Taking pain medication wasn't his problem last time, it was driving while under the influence of legitimately prescribed pain medication. Last time he only suffered a DUI; this time it was worse, but thankfully no one else was harmed other than Nike stockholders.

That's not surprising since the "jaws of life" aren't like some super-item in an RPG that you save because you can only use it once or whatever, they can be reused pretty easily. The only real issue is if one system is in use it can't be used elsewhere at the same time but the odds of that being required isn't all that high, and since even in a "mild" accident they're much safer than most methods of extracting a victim, it only makes sense.

I don't know the man's finances, but I do know a chauffeur is expensive.

He can certainly afford it; the problem wouldn't be financial, but the impact it would have on his lifestyle.

Sounds like he is in a bit of trouble with some very serious injuries.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-02-25/tiger-woods-injury-update-car-crash/13190672

He may not play professional golf ever again.

Wait and see on the actual medical report and recovery plan.

This comment should be deleted ffs, why would you say that before you even knew what his condition was. And at no time did anyone suggest he had died.

He has a yacht bigger than Delaware.  He's fine.
