“Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries. He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support,” said Mark Steinberg, Woods’ agent.

The full extent of Woods’ injuries was not immediately known. The vehicle sustained major damage, authorities said. Woods was the only occupant of the vehicle, authorities said.

Woods, 45, is a native of Southern California and the winner of 15 major championships on the PGA Tour.
