I was there ten minutes before. There was no fog. The sun was behind him at that point. That section of Hawthorne Blve. is steep and curvy. You have to pump your brakes occasionally. I've coasted through that section and reached over 75MPH before braking. There are a couple of runaway truck areas on the side of the road.
Either excessive speed, distracted driving, or impaired driving had to be the cause.

Many of the wealthy including celebrities don't have chauffeurs. I doubt that very many do.

According to a local news (Oregon) item I saw, he was headed to golf with Drew Brees and Justin Herbert.

It sounds like this crash caused compound fractures in his legs but I know heís had multiple back surgeries over the years, including fairly recently. I canít imagine being thrown around in a crashing car like that would be very good for his back.

He is lucky he is alive

I assume he is smart and handled his financial affairs so he could live a comfortable life without golf if that happens to be the case.

Great. So not only do his legs not work, he now smells like a douchebag too!

Look on the bright side gold is a sport that you can play at any age and you won't be forced out so maybe he can pull a Alex Smith comeback and play again.

Sad news to hear about the crash. You never want to see somebody hurt like this. I hope he can come back, but I have my doubts given all his other health issues.

Stephen KIng tweeted to mention, after his accident, took 5 years to get to 90%.

Might be a promotion related to the Genesis Open golf tournament being held in LA.

Must be well built, first responders are saying the safety systems in the car are the only reason he survived.

Sounds like the crash was all a promotional stunt to advertise the safety features of the car.

Genesis device? Star Trek? Ahh, interesting choice.

Thinking about it more, if Tiger was provided the car to drive that week just to promote the Genesis golf tournament, he may not be completely familiar with how it drives and could explain him over-correcting into a ditch.

Have to imagine his golf career is over between this and his previous back surgeries. Too bad, but heís lucky to be alive.

Tiger is only 45. I know he's made millions over the years, but if he chooses to, I think he could take 2-3 years off to rehab and heal from these injuries and still come back at 47 or 48. It's not impossible.
