Tiger Woods’ family have issued an update on the golf legend’s condition after he was moved to a new hospital to continue recovering from his horror car crash.
Woods is now being treated at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after going under the knife for serious injuries which threaten to end his extraordinary golf career.
The 15-times Major winner underwent surgery for two open fractures, a shattered ankle and other injuries following his crash in Los Angeles earlier this week.
And after his move to LA’s Cedars-Sinai centre on Friday, Woods’ family have announced that early follow-up treatment has been successful.
“Tiger has moved to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and received follow-up procedures on his injuries this morning,” read a tweet from the 45-year-old’s official Twitter account.
“The procedures were successful, and he is now recovering and in good spirits.”
“Tiger and his family want to thank you all for the wonderful support and messages they have received over the past few days. We will not have any further updates at this time.
“Thank you for your continued privacy. – TGR.”
Woods underwent surgery at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center after being pulled from his car following his crash on Tuesday.
Open fractures to the 45-year-old’s tibia and fibula and further injuries to his foot and ankle were stabilised with the insertion of a rod, screws and pins.
Woods’ career has been left in the balance by the severity of the injuries, together with the fact that he was already sidelined following a fifth back operation.
On Friday he was moved to LA’s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center – a level one trauma centre with a reputation for rehabbing athletes.
