Golfer Tiger Woods warmed by fellow golfers gestures and offered his thanks for their tribute on Sunday, where many dressed the 15-time major champion’s signature Sunday red and black for the final round.
Woods had a car accident on Tuesday and was being treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after nursing injuries where he fractured his right leg and a shattered ankle.
An 82-time PGA Tour winner, Woods famously wears a red shirt and black trousers on Sundays.
