Golf Superstar Tiger Woods Injured In Car Accident

By Robert Paul Reyes

 "World number one golfer Tiger Woods was seriously injured in a car accident on Friday, a Florida newspaper reported.

The Orlando Sentinel, citing the Florida Highway Patrol, said Woods` car struck a fire hydrant and a tree in Florida`s Isleworth community, near Orlando."

Tiger Woods is a role model, one of the world`s wealthiest athletes, and the leading draw on the PGA tour. Woods has brought  media and public attention to a niche sports, and his fellow golfers have reaped the rewards. If Wood dies or is rendered incapable of playing the game he loves it will be a tremendous blow to the PGA tour. It wouldn`t be much of an exaggeration to claim that Woods is the PGA Tour.

This is a breaking news story, and reports are sketchy. Our thoughts are with the Woods family, we wish Tiger a speedy recovery.
