Tiger Woods’ Car Accident: Rachel Uchitel, Alex Rodriguez, More React


Sending prayers. Rachel Uchitel, Alex Rodriguez, Jada Pinkett Smith and more stars shared well wishes for Tiger Woods after his car accident on Tuesday, February 23.

The golf legend, 45, was involved in a single-car crash on Tuesday morning in the Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes area of California, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed in a statement.

“Mr. Woods was extricated from the wreck with the ‘jaws of life’ by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics, then transported to a local hospital by ambulance for his injuries,” the statement read.

The 15-time major champion suffered “multiple leg injuries” that required surgery, Woods’ manager, Mark Steinberg, told Golf Digest on Tuesday.

Woods was in California for his annual Genesis Invitational golf tournament at the Riviera Country Club. While in town, the 11-time PGA Player of the Year took part in a two-day contest shoot for Golf Digest with stars including Dwyane Wade and David Spade.

The Saturday Night Live alum, 56, joked about being “paired up with someone you don’t know” on Monday, February 22, while posing with Woods for a selfie.

“Golf lesson with this guy today. And you know what? He’s not bad,” Spade wrote via Twitter on the same snap. “He picks things up very quickly. Good listener.”

The former Miami Heat player, 39, shared an Instagram video from his time on the green with Woods and gushed over the experience.

“I got an opportunity — I say, the GOAT, he’s not comfortable with it — to come out with this guy right here,” Wade said in the clip posted on Tuesday. “Everybody be on the lookout. I got some lessons today what I think is the GOAT. Thank you, brother.”

As news broke about Woods’ accident, actors and athletes alike sent him love and prayers for a swift recovery, including his ex-girlfriend Lindsay Vonn and Pinkett Smith, 49, who said she saw the golfer one day before the crash.

“Obviously hearing the news has shaken me up as it’s probably shaken everybody up to see that,” Woods’ former mistress, who was involved in his 2009 cheating scandal, told the New York Post on Tuesday. “Hearing [agent Mark Steinberg] say that he’s in surgery for his legs is something that really worries me and when you hear a comment like that you know it’s true.”

Uchitel added: “He’s an athlete and his legs are essential to his sport and to him being who he is and he’s already had trouble with his body up until this point. He didn’t need any more injuries.”
