Golf superstar Tiger Woods has been transferred to a Los Angeles medical facility for further treatment

Woods underwent surgery for serious leg injuries after his car crash.

Woods was driving alone Tuesday morning in a Los Angeles suburb on a road notorious for accidents when his SUV hit the center median, crossed into the opposing lane, struck a tree and then rolled over several times.

The 15-time major champion underwent surgery to repair “significant orthopedic injuries” to his lower right leg and ankle.

This included the insertion of a rod into Woods’s shin bone and the use of “a combination of screws and pins” to stabilize his foot and ankle.

Woods’ latest injuries have cast doubt on the golfing legend’s ability to compete at the top level again.

The crash comes just two months after the Woods underwent his fifth back operation.

The first officer to arrive at the scene of the crash said it was “very fortunate” that Woods even came out of it alive.
