Obviously, seeing so many different people support Woods today by wearing red shirts and black hats is a great sign of how respected he is.
He’s without a doubt the greatest golfer ever, and his impact on the sport is second to none.

Early Tuesday morning, his life changed forever when he crashed in Los Angeles County. He suffered broken fibula and tibia bones, and that means his road to recovery is going to be incredibly long.

However, if there’s anyone who can get the job done, it’s Tiger Woods. We’re all pulling for him, and the support he was shown today is proof of that fact.
