Tiger Woods was hospitalized after being involved in a single-car accident in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning. The extent of any potential injuries, as well as the circumstances of the accident, remain unclear.

Woods, 45, was in California for a two-day content shoot with Golf Digest/GOLFTV after serving as host for the PGA Tour's Genesis Invitational over the weekend. Pictures surfaced on social media of Woods smiling with Dwayne Wade and David Spade at Rolling Hills Country Club on Monday, but with his movement still restricted, he did not hit balls or play any holes. The shoot involved Woods giving on-course lessons to a number of celebrities, but he mostly provided instruction and hit a few putts. He was in good spirits on Monday but did not arrive to the course for the second day of shooting.

On Sunday, Woods told CBS' Jim Nantz that he was awaiting the results of an upcoming MRI before he could ramp up practicing and training for a return to competition.

Woods last competed alongside his son at the PNC Championship, which finished on Dec. 20 in Orlando. He then underwent a microdiscectomy procedure to remove a pressurized disc fragment that was pinching a nerve. It was his fifth back surgery overall and the first since his spinal fusion in April 2017.

We will continue to update this post as more information becomes available.

He is in surgery right now.  He has multiple fractures of both legs.  He is also recovering from his fifth back surgery.  He is going to have a long recovery.  I wish him well.

I didn't even edit out the fluff before posting.  I posted first, then went back and edited.

He's had a lot of bad luck over several years. His consolation is the money keeps rolling in.  Money is not everything though.

You're right, money means squat when you don't have your health. I hope he will be ok

At least he is fortunate enough to have the financial means as his medical bills will be substantial, even with insurance.

Who knows, Golf Digest just reported he was in surgery for multiple leg injuries.

ABC reports it was a roll over that required the jaws of life to extract him.

The images of the rolled over car missing its engine containment area are devastating! Wishing him the best too!

Glad he is ok.

It must really suck to not be able to play the sport you love because of injury.

(Yes I called it a sport...)

Yet, there does come a time when one has to look at one self (Venus/Serena) and say 'Self, let's take a nice rest now!' Enjoy your accolades earned in life. Tiger Woods has done all that he can do in the golf world. Settle down! Be still. You're doing too much, maybe?

Once he's recovered, he should start a golf academy, like Annika did.
