His agent Mark Steinberg confirmed the morning incident as he revealed in a statement the 45-year old suffered “multiple” leg injuries.

“Tiger Woods was in a single car accident this morning in Carlifonia where he suffered multiple leg injuries. He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support,” the statement said.

Woods was in California for a two-day content shoot with Golf Digest/GOLFTV.

This was after he hosted the PGA Tour's Genesis Invitational over the weekend where he was spotted with the likes of Dwayne Wade and David Spade.

Because of a spinal fusion surgery he had recently, Woods' movement was restricted and he didn't get involved in playing holes, instead focusing on giving on course lessons from celebrities.

According to the LA County Sherrifs’ statement, the vehicle rolled over traffic collision on the border.

Tiger Woods and the driver were the only occupants of the car at the time of the accident.

“The driver and the sole occupant was identified as PGA golfer Eldrick “Tiger” Woods. Mr Woods was extricated from the wreck with the “jaws of life” by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics, then transported to a local hospital by ambulance for his injuries,” said th statement.

Hours after the accident, Woods’ doctors gave an update saying he was recovering from the accident.

Woods is one of the most successful golfers of all time, and has won 15 major championships.
