Tiger Woods: "I don't remember I was driving"

Tiger Woods would remember nothing of the car accident he was involved in, especially driving the Genesis GV80 in which he went off the road, overturning and suffering fractures in the upper and lower part of the tibia and fibula of the right leg.

This is what emerges from the declaration that the Californian golf champion would have issued to the authorities who are trying to reconstruct the dynamics of the incident.

Tiger Woods, update

The news was reported by the USA Today newspaper, which would have directly quoted the sworn statement issued by Woods and attached to the search warrant used by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department to obtain the black box in the SUV that the famous American sportsman was driving.

According to what was written in the affidavit, "the officers would have asked him how the collision occurred, with the driver saying he did not know and did not even remember driving [...] The driver was treated for his injuries in the hospital and he was asked again how the collision happened.

He repeated that he did not know and did not remember driving ”. Meanwhile, investigations continue to ascertain the dynamics of the accident, a more than normal procedure even if Woods was driving alone and did not involve other vehicles in the accident: "We are trying to determine if a crime has been committed", explained the Deputy of Sheriff John Schloegl.

"If someone is involved in a road accident, we need to reconstruct the collision, determine if there was reckless driving, if the driver was on a cell phone or if other offenses occurred. We need to determine if a crime has been committed.

If there was no irregularity, we close the case and it was just a normal accident. " The Woods accident generated great attention around the Korean brand Genesis: despite the strong impact, which caused extensive damage to the car to the point of having to cut the metal sheets to extract the golf champion from the cockpit, the GV80 SUV proved to be solid and robust, to the point that the popularity of the brand has grown.

Collin Morikawa won the World Golf Championships-Workday Championship at The Concession in Florida and emulated his legend of all time, Woods, becoming the only player - along with Tiger - to win a Major (the PGA Championship in 2020) and a WGC before of 25 years.

"Tiger means everything to me. Luckily he is better now and I hope he can recover as soon as possible. Every time in life we ‚Äč‚Äčlose people we love without thanking them enough for what they did. My grandfather passed away a month ago and this I want to dedicate victory to him and to Woods " This is Morikawa's tribute at the end of the race.
