Tiger Woods grateful for ‘touching’ gesture as players wear red and black

Tiger Woods has expressed his gratitude for the “touching” gesture of players wearing his signature red and black as he continues to recover from a car crash.

The players wore them for the final round of the WGC-Workday Championship.

The golfer, who had previously said he was in “good spirits” after being moved to a second hospital in Los Angeles for treatment from multiple injuries sustained in the incident, added that his fellow competitors and fans were aiding in his recovery.

He said on Twitter: “It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the tv and saw all the red shirts.

“To every golfer and every fan, you are truly helping me get through this tough time.”

Earlier, Collin Morikawa fittingly emulated one of Woods’s achievements with victory in the championship in Florida.

Morikawa carded a closing 69 at The Concession Golf Club to finish 18 under par, three shots clear of Brooks Koepka, Viktor Hovland and Billy Horschel.

Morikawa joins Woods as the only player to have won a major championship and WGC event before turning 25, the 24-year-old claiming the US PGA Championship in 2020 in just his second major appearance.

Rory McIlroy was among the players to wear red and black, while Woods’s close friend Justin Thomas wore a near-replica of the striped shirt Woods wore in the final round of the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open.
