No charges for the accident. Maybe an infraction if they determine was on the phone at the time. No evidence of impairment.

This is what caused my initial concern. In a way, I'm glad they didn't take blood. I believe if you're under the influence of opiates you may not display any signs. I'm hoping he has a speedy recovery with little or no physical impairments.

Did your daughter have any noticeable after-effects from her operation?

Tiger was arrested for DUI in Florida in 2017 after officers found him passed out behind the wheel of his car. Woods later said his condition was an unintended result from taking prescription medication.

She had two amazing orthopedic surgeons. One for the initial surgery who took his time to make sure he did it right because he had a daughter the same age. And then another who did the follow up treatments and the surgery to remove the rods later who was equally diligent with her time. So my daughter came out of it all perfectly with no residual effects outside of a decent scar where the bones broke the skin and some imperceptible ones from the surgeries. I marvel at what they were able to do.

Good to hear. Must have been a trying time for you.

Indeed, also fortunately there weren’t any passengers present.

According to a doctor and injury analyst for Fox Sports, Woods is expected to be rehabilitating for eight-to-12 months. He could be back sooner if he doesn't need additional surgery.

“I expect Tiger to be rehabilitating from 8 - 12 months, but could be back much sooner if he doesn’t need additional surgery. If the healing process goes as planned, we will see Tiger back on the course.”

It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the tv and saw all the red shirts. To every golfer and every fan, you are truly helping me get through this tough time.

I didn't realize that SUV's had black boxes. This car had one but Kobe's helicopter didn't. Also same sheriff involved...

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/l-sheriff-s-office-gets-warrant-black-box-tiger-woods-n1259450

L.A. sheriff's office gets warrant for 'black box' in Tiger Woods' crashed SUV
Sheriff Alex Villanueva said accidents are not uncommon in the area where Woods' Genesis GV80 rolled over.


Investigators with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department have executed a search warrant to get the data from the "black box" in the luxury SUV involved in the rollover crash that left Tiger Woods seriously injured last week.

"Traffic collision investigators are continuing the investigation into the cause of the collision involving Mr. Woods," Deputy Trina Schrader told NBC News in a statement. "On March 1, 2021, they executed a search warrant to retrieve data from the vehicles 'black box.' At this time, there is no additional information regarding the recovered data."


Schrader added that obtaining a warrant for a crash vehicle's "black box" data was "standard procedure."

The department will not be seeking a warrant for Woods' blood to determine if he was under the influence during the single-car crash on Feb. 23 in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, USA Today Sports reported.


Sheriff Alex Villanueva said during a news conference on the day of the crash that accidents are not uncommon in the area where Woods' Genesis GV80 rolled over, because of the downhill slopes and curves on the road. Woods was the driver and only occupant of the vehicle.

"I will say that it's very fortunate that Mr. Woods was able to come out of this alive, because this is an accident-prone stretch of road," added Sheriff's Deputy Carlos Gonzalez, one of the first responders to the scene. "We've seen a number of accidents on this stretch of roadway."

Firefighters used an ax and a crowbar to pry him from the vehicle, where he was being held down because the steering wheel had been pushed into his lap.

The golfer had emergency surgery at Harbor-UCLA shortly after the crash. Doctors inserted a rod into his right leg, and pins and screws were used to stabilize his ankle and foot injuries.

Woods has since been transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for recovery.

Woods, 45, who is based in Jupiter, Florida, was in Southern California over the weekend for the Genesis Invitational, which benefits his foundation. He is recovering from back surgery, his fifth such operation, and has not played in a tournament this year.

Statements from Woods' team thanked fans for their support, and on Sunday Woods tweeted that golfers who had sported a red shirt and black pants in support of him were "truly helping me get through this tough time."

His team did not immediately respond to a request for comment regarding the latest in the crash investigation.

In 2017, Woods was arrested after he was found asleep behind the wheel of his car. He had various painkillers and sleep medication in his system; he said he was seeking relief from back pain.

Woods' also famously crashed his Cadillac Escalade SUV into a fire hydrant and a tree just after Thanksgiving 2009 outside his home in Florida. The incident inadvertently revealed a bitter marital dispute with his wife at the time, Elin Nordegren, as a host of women came forward to admit to having had extramarital affairs with Woods.

An HBO documentary last month chronicled his meteoric rise and public shaming in 2009 and 2010.

Woods is considered one of the greatest golfers in history. He has won 82 tournaments, tied for the most in a career with Sam Snead, and he has won 15 major championships, second only to Jack Nicklaus.

The Sheriff's office has been cleared by Tiger to release their investigation. Speed was the sole cause of the accident. Tiger was doing 83 mph in a 45 zone.

Conspiracy theorist in me doesn't buy this explanation at face value especially when just last week they said they needed Tiger's permission to reveal something so it makes me wonder...

I do hope he hires a driver in the future though.

not defending him and dont know all the details but in many cars these days you can easily cruise into 80mph before you even realize it... and Ive had my share of doing that on open roads.
But I never ever mistaken the gas for the break...

He was apparently running late and racing to get to the Riviera in the Palisades.
