Woods, 45, was in California for a two-day shoot with Golf Digest/GOLFTV after serving as host for the PGA Tour’s Genesis Invitational over the weekend.
The car Woods had been driving appeared to be a Genesis Invitational courtesy vehicle.
Woods had been giving lessons to a number of celebrities. He did not play himself, however, as he is recovering from back surgery.
The surgery to relieve a pressurised disc fragment that was pinching a nerve was his fifth on his back since his spinal fusion in April 2017.
“The driver and sole occupant was identified as PGA golfer Eldrick ‘Tiger’ Woods. Mr Woods was extricated with the ‘jaws of life’ by Los Angeles firefighters and paramedics, then transported to hospital to ambulance for his injuries,’ the Sheriff’s Office tweeted on Tuesday.
Woods was arrested for driving under the influence of drugs in 2017, when he was found to have two types of painkillers and two sleep drugs in his system.
