The 45-year-old golfer was hospitalized after the single-car rollover accident in California, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Woods’s agent Mark Steinberg told Golf Digest that the golf pro suffered “multiple” leg injuries and was undergoing surgery.
Trump awarded Woods the Medal of Freedom in a ceremony at the White House in 2019.
While bestowing the nation’s highest civilian honor on Woods, Trump called the five-time Masters winner “a global symbol of American excellence, devotion and drive.”
The ex-president’s son Eric Trump also offered praise for Woods on Tuesday, tweeting:
