Thanks.  But good point.  I need to get back on topic.

Funniest word in the whole thread.

I think this is St Andrews

Interesting Twitter thread from a doctor:  

What is the point of this?-So it was not an accident even though that is what we call things like this-Auto Accidents? Is anyone else as annoyed by the talking heads worrying or wondering when he

Don’t cars have a black box?

Maybe they do?


'Black box' in Tiger Woods' SUV could yield clues about cause of wreck

Having no memory of the crash is a huge concern for me as a fan, though I myself have never been in a serious car accident before so maybe that's not uncommon. Hopefully they're not hiding head trauma from us of any kind.

I didn't see it in the article, but my understanding is that info provided by the EDR (black box) is available only to the owner of the vehicle and the manufacturer.  Probably one and the same in this case.  Police can get a warrant to access it.  We, the public, may not learn what was recorded.

A question on my mind:  Not being a doctor, Woods said he has no recall of the crash, yet he was conscious throughout it.  I thought that when one passes out during an event they might not have a recollection of it.  But in Woods' case???

I've never been through anything that traumatic, but I broke my wrist a while back, apparently I wasn't watching where I was going and missed a step down.  Even with that relatively minor mishap, I have never had any memory of the actual trip and fall.  I remember walking out, and I remember finding myself face-down with a sore ankle and a REALLY sore wrist.  I don't think a little memory loss around the actual incident is all that unusual.

However, they're completely within their rights to withhold ANY medical details from us.  Its none of our business whether Tiger banged his head, was knocked unconscious, whatever, we simply don't need to know.

Appreciate it. Yep, they owe us nothing. Still, as a fan I'm concerned when I read about blacking out and memory loss. The first responders did say he was responsive when they found him so that's probably a good sign here anyway.

Not a medical professional, but similar experience. I was in an accident on my bike about two years ago. I was riding home from work and got doored (cyclist's nightmare) by someone getting out of a parked car. I don't have much memory of the actual accident other than what I was told by witnesses. All I really recall is sitting on the curb and talking to the person at fault (who was terrified and very apologetic). I wasn't really aware that I was injured at the time. I remember after 5-10 minutes I got on my bike, which was only lightly damaged, and rode home. I noticed blood dripping out of my glove on the porch opening the front door and came to the realization that I was injured. I think I was in shock, and maybe that's why I didn't recall what happened. I went to the ER right after that.

Memory loss from trauma is not uncommon, even if the person was awake. Can never know for sure what he remembers or not of course, but if he doesn’t remember driving off the road, maybe it’s related to what  caused the accident.

Is there some kind of article showing where he ran off, what he potentially hit before the car stopped rolling?

Earlier articles said he hit the median curb, plowed through a wooden "Welcome to Palos Verdes" sign on the median, then hit the curb across the Southbound lane.  Just missed a telephone pole, rolled, hit an 8" diameter tree... came to rest.

I’ve broken my collarbone training for cyclocross. I remember the aftermath, severe pain and nausea, but don’t recall the actual crash other than waking up on the ground. It happened very fast.

When I was 13, I broke my ankle vaulting in gymnastics. I missed the end of the board and hit the horse chest first at full speed. I woke up quite a while later with people standing over me, my leg wrapped in ice and my instructor taking my pulse. I don’t have any memory of the vault. I think pain takes precedent and the endorphins kick in.

I'm kind of tempted to look in the dashcam subreddit, see if there is any coverage of that spot, not of Woods' incident, but other crashes.

I've never been in any kind of serious accident either, but if this happened to me, I guess I would be pretty interested to say the least in looking at the coverage from my dashcam, assuming the memory card didn't get damaged.

Is it possible that Tiger's back was not adversely affected by this crash?  Has anybody heard or read anything?

Maybe Google Maps and similar should have a feature like Waze does with radar traps. You are approaching an area known for accidents. Please proceed cautiously. Maybe it’s already a thing and I don’t know about it.

Have not gone into this thread except initially and now, so I don't know the content but has anybody wondered if he was on the phone ?  Ima tell you, before I banned myself from phone usage in most situations while driving, talking on the phone was about as distracting as anything;  like blowing thru a stoplight without a clue in the world.

I'm sure it's doable.  If it's not already in effect in some places. My old TomTom informed me of radar traps, being over the speed limit, and red light cameras.

The Taconic Pkwy in NY has some tortuous uphill and downhill turns although not a local street, people are passing each other on a road made for 1930s jalopies (I kid you not, the parkway was built in the 20s). It's incidents like these that make me think I was crazy for passing people at 75 mph on one of these turns. I'm going to take those turns a little slower now.

    • I don’t think they are following the science there. We have to rely on that. I voted yes. 
    • There are a number of places in the article that references government requirements.  I took a quick look through Google, and see that the UK does still have significant restrictions on travelers, including proof of vaccination, testing, and quarantine in some situations.  Those restrictions are going to apply to anyone visiting the country for the tournament.  They are facing a surge in new cases, apparently associated with the Delta variant.  Given all that, its hard to blame the R&A if they're following current government guidelines and restrictions.  And I honestly don't know whether the government policies are excessively restrictive, given the surge this spring from the Alpha variant, and the current surge from Delta.  I'm just barely on the side saying the restrictions aren't too far, given the current situation in the UK.
    • Some examples: “I’m going to go because it’s the British Open. But I certainly thought about not going. I just can’t believe with the numerous examples of successfully run safely held tournaments and majors here that they can’t figure out a better situation,” the player said. “If someone on your plane tests positive on way to the British and is sitting anywhere close to you, you’re out no questions asked, no matter if you’re vaccinated. It’s aggravating that they deem the tournament safe enough for 32,000 fans a day to attend, but won’t let a player’s wife, children travel and watch the tournament, nor will they even let players visit a restaurant without threat of disqualification.” and According to the note sent by the R&A to players, caddies and coaches, those on different player teams will not be allowed to stay together, which makes things difficult for many who travel in support of players. “The up-to-four persons [regulation] within private rental accommodation must be included within the players’ own support group … For example, multiple players or multiple caddies are not permitted to share private self accommodation,” the R&A email read. “We recognise this is difficult for many that used to share during the championship but the Government’s strict contact tracing requirements mean that this will not be possible in 2021. and The potential for being ousted from the tournament has players angry, especially in light of the eased restrictions for patrons. The R&A recently announced that up to 32,000 fans will be able to attend each day at Royal St George’s — that’s 80 percent of the typical 40,000 spectators allowed on the site. “They care more about the revenue of the fans buying beers than they do about the actual people participating in the tournament,” said the player who spoke with Golfweek. “Any fan can go to a grocery store or a restaurant and we can’t. Does that make sense? And I’m vaccinated. How does that make sense?” So, I voted "yes."
    • Players angry, consider skipping Open Championship after R&A hands down strict COVID regulations Some are considering a boycott of the prestigious event and others are simply miffed by the regulations. What do you think about the COVID Protocols at the 2021 Open Championship?   I'll get things started.  I voted "YES" they are going too far.  What is the point of telling players, coaches & caddies that have been living in close proximity for months and most have been vaccinated they cannot share accommodations?  And at the same time allowing @ 80% capacity for fans?  Do testing, etc. similar to the PGA Tour, it seems to have prevented any massive outbreaks for quite some time.  They also claim requirements are for Contact Tracing, if you know who is in the house, RV, etc. Contact Tracing should not be that hard.  By making them separate they may actually increase the number of people they come in contact with.
