Details are still sketchy, but according to local news reports in Florida, Tiger Woods was seriously injured in an early morning car accident near his home there.
Although the accident happened at 2:25 a.m., it was some 11 hours before the Florida Highway Patrol issued a report and news organizations began reporting the accident.
According to one report, Woods’ agent says he’s “fine.”
Late Update: While the initial police report said Woods had serious injuries, Woods just issued a statement saying he’d been treated and released from the hospital.
It was really difficult to imagine Woods being seriously injured and in a U.S. hospital for 11 hours before news leaked out.
