Talk about a coordinated effort.
Golfers donned the red Tiger Woods shirt and black pants Sunday to honor the great golfer, who has been hospitalized since an SUV accident on February 23.
The color pattern has been Woods’ predominant Sunday ensemble during a now-in-jeopardy career that has included 82 PGA victories and 15 majors.
Woods broke his leg and underwent reconstructive surgery after his SUV went off the road in Los Angeles and rolled over last week. He continues to recover in the hospital.
But the best medicine he could have received on Sunday was watching television coverage of his peers, including World No. 8 Rory McIlroy and No. 3 Justin Thomas in their signature garb at the WGC Workday Championship in Bradenton, Florida.
Everyday golfers, hobbyists and course maintenance workers from elsewhere also joined the tribute, Today reported.
“It’s hard to explain how moving it was today when I turned on the television and saw all the red jerseys,” Woods wrote on Twitter. “To all the golfers and fans, you are really helping me through this difficult time.”
Collin Morikawa, who won the WGC Workday tournament, did not wear a red jersey, but had moving words for the ailing legend.
“Tiger is everything to me,” Morikawa said. “And yes, he had the accident and fortunately he is fine, and I hope he has a fast and great recovery. But I don’t think we’re grateful enough, so I want to thank Tiger because sometimes you lose people too soon … Kobe, I lost my grandfather about a month ago and you can’t thank. enough. So thanks guys. “
