Woods, a 15-time major winner and 82-time PGA tour victor, was on his way to a GolfTV/Golf Digest shoot on the morning of the crash. He broke several bones in his lower right leg, needing a rod to stabilize a fracture and screws and pins inserted in his foot and ankle.

The 45-year-old was found unconscious in the wrecked vehicle, and told authorities he “did not even remember driving.”
