Thomas learned of the accident just minutes before he was scheduled to join a zoom meeting press conference for this week's upcoming WGC-Workday Championship.

"I'm sick to my stomach", Thomas said. "I just hope he's alright. I'm just worried about his kids, I'm sure they're struggling right now."

Woods was described as "conscious and responsive" to emergency personnel by the LA County Sherrif's Department. There is no evidence of any impairment at this time. Woods' agent has said that he was in surgery on Tuesday afternoon after suffering "multiple leg injuries".
