Tiger Woods has a long road to recovery that will most certainly keep him off the golf course for the remainder of the year. Given what he went through Tuesday morning, he would gladly take that outcome as opposed to something worst happening.

Details continue to emerge from the horrific single-car accident involving the golf legend. According to Daniel Miller and the L.A. Times, Woods suffered a shattered ankle and two leg fractures in the rollover crash.

The L.A. County Sheriff said that Woods is “lucky to be alive.”

Woods’ vehicle reportedly crossed the median and rolled several times before coming to rest off the road. L.A. County Sheriff’s Department claimed that there was “no evidence of impairment” when officers arrived on the scene of the crash.

“We’ve been in touch with his manager and they didn’t want me to say anything on his condition,” L.A. county official Alex Villanueva said. “All we know is that it’s a serious condition as a result of the accident and that’s about all they want to say.”

Deputy Carlos Gonzalez says Tiger was lucid and could speak at the crash scene — and did not appear to be under the influence of either alcohol or any other substance.
