You agreed to adopt 2 of my kids.  PM me your address.

Would you entertain 2 children, ethnicity and gender unknown?  

He's done. He'll be competitive but he lost the fear factor. Looks like The Gold Bear might be out of the woods.

Can you fly jet out of there now?  That’s super close to where the crash was. 

yea you can, i didn't think about this angle and if he was going north it's in that general direction. i guess he was staying up there in RPV after the tournament, curious why up there since Riviera is nowhere near there. it's not exactly a staycation hot spot, there's nothing to do there though it is a upper scale neighborhood.

Yeah not sure. Riviera to van Nuys airport is about the same distance from a PVE house to Torrance. I guess he just likes ocean views.

So maybe he was heading back to Riviera

 

@Daniel_Rapaport: To clarify: Tiger is in LA for a two-day shoot with Golf Digest and GOLFTV. 

Despite some speculation, he was not playing holes or hitting balls, but giving on-course lessons to celebrities. Tiger was in good spirits Monday. Did not arrive to course Tuesday.

He was at Terranea yesterday for a photo shoot

Ahhhhhhh, there you go.  Love that spot.  Always brings back memories of descending those cliffs for impromptu partying.

Yeah David Spade posted some pics of him and Tiger yesterday.  So did Dwayne Wade.

I'm trying to figure it out exactly where he wound up.  there's a canyon to the west just below Blackhorse, but man it would be tough to get all the way into.  

 

eta I just heard he was traveling north, so that puts him pretty far from blackhorse

eta2, I now see the sign he took out.  looks like he jumped the median

 

Sucks to hear about this.  :kicksrock: 

ETA: Thought I'd identified the spot at Hawthorne near Palos Verdes Dr N (under all the phone lines overhead) but a different pic just posted isn't that spot.

Is this the spot (I read it was at Hawthorne near Palos Verdes Dr N, which is this intersection)?  I saw the pic from overhead with all the wires, and this looks like the only spot anywhere near the intersection that has a drop below the wires.  The view here looking at the street light is a south view.  If he was heading north, they have an emergency exit lane due to the downslope and turn. Either the unfamiliar slope, possible fog, or unexpected traffic backed up at the light could have caused him to veer left, cross through this intersection, and go through the white fence.

Sucks to hear about this.  :kicksrock: 

up the hill from there.  roughly here:

he allegedly was headed north, coming down the hill.  pretty easy to pick up speed.  both Hawthorne and Crenshaw (steeper, curvier) have bail out lanes filled with gravel.

Seeing reports of compound fractures of both legs.   Oof.

Get that man a full-time driver.  

I always wonder why people like tiger don’t hire a driver.  I’d never drive again

Some people actually enjoy driving. Especially if it’s a higher end vehicle.

According to the sheriff just now, he managed to bounce of the median, hit a sign, shear off a tree with an 8" trunk and still had enough momentum to bounce all the way across the road and into a ditch.   Seriously, someone take away Tiger's license.

I’m sure tiger brings a lot of scrutiny.  So you have to be thorough.

Here's the thing- if you have a driver,  you have someone who knows where you were and who you were with. (and for how long)

Of course speculation out there re: substances (and I'll admit the thought crossed my mind as well).  He didn't seem high on Sunday to me, just super hung over.  And super lucid and happy in the pics and videos from yesterday.  So I sincerely hope it's maybe a case of falling asleep at the wheel or something other unrelated to substance use.

We'll see, but it wasn't weather or traffic or any of that.  That road is as easy as it gets.  He was either having fun gunning it down and just F'd up, or he overdid it with some partying and/or meds that carried over into Tuesday morning and zombied the Genesis. 

All nighter at Terranea, imo.  He's human.

 

Here's to another miracle comeback!

Or, he could have just been late for something and was driving way too fast to try to make up for it. TMZ reported that someone saw him leaving the hotel and that another vehicle had him blocked in for a while and that Woods seemed agitated. He then reportedly drove out of the hotel at a high speed almost hitting someone on the way out.

What would a full time driver cost yearly for Tiger? 

I bet a lot less than 2 compound fractures and a shattered ankle, folks he might be done playing Golf at this point. 

Cost him tens of millions vs I'll say $100k-$200k tops for the year, unbelievable. I thought after we found him off Military here in Jupiter that would be the end of it but he keeps getting in car accidents.

Not like having a professional is always a way to avoid accidents (see last Jan also in LA County), but I agree.

Loved watching his comeback, but compound fractures and a shattered ankle on top of his back issues....... very sad.

Reportedly no signs of breaking. Fell asleep?

Let's see you on the putting green.

 

Long history of intense media/public scrutiny and pressure.
