His vehicle suffered "major damage" and Woods was transported to a hospital after being removed from it.

In a statement to Golf Digest, Woods' agent Mark Steinberg said: "Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries. He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support."
