In what is a major blow for the golfing world, Tiger Woods got involved in a major car accident. Apparently, his car lost control and swerved off the road. The out-of-control car then proceeded to roll down a steep hill, and the crash gave him severe leg injuries. In light of the accident, many admirers came out to wish him well, and NASCAR driver Kyle Busch was among them.

Without a doubt, Tiger Woods is regarded as one of the greatest golfers of all-time, if not the greatest. He truly made an indelible mark on the sport and he will always be remembered. He has built his reputation so high that he is the first person that people think of when they talk about golf.

Hopefully, the 45-year-old makes a full recovery from the crash. If or when he does, he surely cannot expect to get back in the golfing fray. In other words, if he wants to resume playing, he will probably have to undergo rehabilitation for a while.
