Forest replied on Twitter
to the gesture made by many in the golf community, including Tommy Fleetwood, Justin Thomas and Cameron Champ, who wore Woods’ signature garb.
“It’s hard to explain how moving it was today when I turned on the television and saw all the red jerseys,” Woods wrote Sunday. “To all the golfers and fans, you are really helping me through this difficult time.”
Golfers at Gainbridge LPGA on Sunday, including Annika Sorenstam, also he wore red and black
in support of Woods.
PGA Tour Communications tweeted a photo
Maintenance staff Sunday at the Puerto Rico Open wearing red and black to honor Woods.
And golfer Bryson DeChambeau
tweeted an image of a golf ball with the name “Tiger” and a red line.
“We are all supporting @tigerwoods,” DeChambeau wrote. “A mentor, idol and role model in my career, there is no one who can come out of this stronger. We are glad you are here. See you soon.”
Woods sustained serious leg injuries in a single-vehicle rollover accident last week near Los Angeles, where his SUV crossed a median, crossed two lanes of the highway, then struck a tree and landed on the driver’s side in weed.
After initial treatment at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, Woods was transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he received follow-up procedures, a tweet posted on friday
to Woods’ Twitter account. “The procedures were successful, and now he is recovering and in a good mood.”
Woods’ injuries included open fractures to the tibia and fibula that required insertion of a rod, and additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle that were stabilized with screws and pins.
