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

Provided the injuries aren't life threatening (nobody would have thought Alex Smith's leg injury would have been life threatening so who really knows) tough to imagine him ever playing again. Lets just hope he pulls through to the point of being able to live a semi pain free life after this.

Oof. Surviving and being able to have a fully functional body is of course what matters. Wasn’t expecting too much from him on the tour anymore, but this might put the lid on professional golf.

The man can’t get a break. Such a big part of hid late career has been held down by injuries.

Just saying ---- at the time of writing, there is no information that says Tiger has broken "both legs".

 "Multiple leg injuries" does not imply this. Having said that, it may well be the case, but I do believe that the OP title is incorrect and premature.

Pretty surreal considering the entirety of the internet was memeing hard Sunday/Monday with his appearance while he was on air with Nantz Sunday.

I think it was here (flip on satellite view and zoom out slightly):


I think you're exactly right.  If the reporting is accurate, that he was northbound, it means he crossed the median before ending up where he did.  I guess we can be glad that there was only one car involved.

Jimmy Roberts says "Don't speculate but use your imagination." STFU Jimmy!

I need to see this interview from Sunday. They say alcohol was ruled out, but could still be from some drug relating to surgeries. Could also be totally unrelated.

Good to hear it is not life-threatening. The crash looks quite bad, but cars these days are also quite good at protecting the passengers. Leg injuries could be a lot of things, but obviously not a good thing.

Cars are supposed to look bad after a crash. Older cars didn't, but that meant more injuries for the passengers. The front of the vehicle is especially designed to reduce the rate of deceleration and soften the blow.

Inappropriate comment from Roberts. 

To be fair, Roberts is completely out of his natural habitat and safety of the totally maudlin four-minute puff piece. I can't really expect him to be Peter Jennings right now or something. But still. Come on, Jimmy. Be a professional today please.

    • Day 60 - Slow swings making sure I fully turned my hips. 
    • Note from practice 2021-03-05: Working on palmar flexion as priority piece. Slow rehearsals of transition move and Covid-19 day-4 drill all seem to look fine, with clubface aligned to my spine at A6 (slightly toe down). When I move to full speed, and look at swings on film with Mirrorvision, the face is vertical. This leads to a flip/shove to close the face at impact, or I can hold off the flip (if I think about it hard enough before the swing), and leave the face a bit open and hit what I assume would be a push/cut. I had a mini-realization watching the videos and doing some rehearsals. When I rehearse the palmar flexion move, my forearms arms don't have nearly as much tension as when I am making a full speed swing, and my wrists move freely. I did some rehearsals simulating the tension in my forearms that I feel with full speed swing and tried to palmar flex my wrist and I could barely do it. I did some more rehearsals/Covid-19 day-4 drills, and then hit some balls with full swings with the conscious thought of less forearm tension, and suddenly I could feel the palmar flexion move. It was too dark to get any video, but I'm going to record tomorrow and see if the clubface looks any different at A6 compared to video from today.
    • Lmao, yep.  The range on this man is unbelievable.  
    • You go from this to "Down with the Sickness" and you got a huge gap. 
    • I played this for my elderly mother, and she loved it.  Wasn't quite as impressed with the rest of their lineup.  His voice is absolutely magical, probably the best cover I've heard.
