Very shocking news broke out yesterday that golf legend Tiger Woods was in a pretty serious accident.
Woods was driving in a Los Angeles suburbs when his car rolled down a steep roadway.
Tiger survived the crash but received serious damage to his legs and is now being treated at UCLA.
President Trump a very close friend of Woods in an interview with Fox News said “He (Woods) will recover from this … he will figure out a way” and went on to say “Get well soon, Tiger. You are a true champion!”.
While some golfers became too “woke” to be associated with Trump, Tiger Woods always showed support towards him and was even awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President Trump in 2019.
Tiger Woods was injured Tuesday in a single-car crash near Los Angeles, according to LA County Sheriffs.

Fox News conducted the interview with Trump and had these important details to add:
President Donald Trump told Fox News Tuesday that he has “no doubt” Tiger Woods will make a strong comeback after suffering serious injuries in a car accident in Southern California.
“He has overcome a lot, but he has had an incredible life and he is going to continue to have an incredible life,” Trump told “Fox News Primetime” host Katie Pavlich. “He will recover from this … he will figure out a way.”
Trump awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Woods following his victory at the Masters Tournament in 2019. In remarks prior to the presentation, Trump hailed Woods as “a global symbol of American excellence, devotion, and drive.”
Woods was the sole occupant in the crash near the Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes neighborhoods of Los Angeles. Officials said the crash occurred at around 7:12 a.m. and the vehicle sustained “major damage.” Woods was transported to Harbor UCLA Hospital, with multiple injuries to both his legs.
Just take a look at Tiger’s SUV, he’s super blessed to be alive.
Airbags perhaps saved Tiger Woods' life in a serious vehicle crash Tuesday in suburban Los Angeles. The airbags in the golf superstar's SUV went off and that “gave him a cushion to survive the crash,” the sheriff says. https://t.co/QyVGUDbK3I

USA Today chipped in too:
President Donald Trump wished his friend and occasional golf partner Tiger Woods a speedy recovery Tuesday night, noting how Woods has been able to overcome serious health problems in the past.
“He’s going to be back,” Trump said. “I have no doubt about it, he’s going to be back.”
The 15-time major champion was seriously injured in a one-car crash early Tuesday in the Los Angeles area. He has been hospitalized with what have been described as serious but not life-threatening injuries.
In an interview with Fox News on Tuesday, Trump said he was a big fan of Woods both professionally and personally. “As a golfer he’s just incredible,” Trump said. “He’s an incredible guy.”
