Tiger Woods in Car Crash in California


Recommended Posts

Sincerely hoping he's OK.

The photos of the car might be deceptive. He was driving what is, to all intents and purposes, a Hyundai Santa Fe. The strength is in the internal cage, if you will, that protects the occupants - the "safety cell" like most modern cars. But the panels on those cars are flimsy and thin - I know, I rented one, leaned against the wing and heard and felt it flex and bend inwards and was grateful it popped back into shape, and I'm not an especially big guy. If you look at the wreck the passenger cabin seems intact, even if it had to be cut open to remove him. In other words, modern cars are remarkable when it comes to safety, and hopefully this one did its job. I sincerely hope his injuries are not too bad.

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

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

Maybe I am seeing the wrong interview, but I do not sense anything "Wrong" with Tiger in this interview.  Am I missing something?

According to this site, Genesis was the safest brand you could buy in 2020:

It is luxury brand from Huyndai.

He seemed fine to me, too.  As a fellow degenerative back issue sufferer, I can understand how Tiger could not commit to The Masters.  He has to see the medical results, his MD's direction, and then can he hit it.  Too soon for him to know.  Unless someone has had real neuro pain like Tiger, you have no clue.

See what @Zeph said, and also let me quote from Wikipedia…

"Genesis models are designed in Rüsselsheim (Germany)…"

I thought he looked fine. He wasn't optimistic, but he looked fine to me.

I place no credence on JD Power.  Germans make the safest cars.  Hundai is shit

Cool story bro.

German cars break down all the f***ing time, and modern cars are designed to almost break apart like an F1 car or other racing cars to absorb a lot of the force. Let's stick to the topic eh?

I didn’t notice much in that interview really. If the comments hadn’t been there I don’t think I would have thought anything of it.

Ok.  Sorry.  I am just sad for his accident.  As one who deals with safety professionally and one who only owns certain cars, my bias is perhaps misplaced.  Hope he is ok

The talking heads speculating on whether Tiger can win #83 at this point are starting to piss me off.

I don't care if he never plays PGA Tour golf again (for me personally). I just want him to be happy, healthy, and recover. He doesn't owe me shit.

Then, for God's sake, get yourself a Keurig and have your coffee before you leave the house in a killing machine.

Disappointingly (but predictably) a lot of the news outlets managing to squeeze his DWI arrest from a few years back into their reporting, so it was pleasing to hear that angle already seems to be discounted in this crash.

One thing that does make me wonder, though...sunrise in Los Angeles this morning was 6.27am and police arrived on the scene of the accident at 7.12am. I'm about his age and have begun to notice the effects of bad low-light vision exacerbated by myopia and astigmatism, but unlike him I wear glasses rather than having had the laser surgery - and there seems to be a lot of discussion in the medical literature that the laser surgery makes low-light vision even worse.

    • Billy, no, but there are sometimes snakes, although Ihaven't seen any personally but I've seen LOTS Of twisted sticks on the ground that have scared the crap out of me -- i don't know if that counts or not?  Also, there is a bat tree on the front nine in Lusaka, it is a huge tree and has enormous bats in it for half the year (then they migrate). So, that's cool!  
    • The above post is almost 13 years old.  I've now played in 48 states (all but Alaska and Hawaii) and 13 countries. Total number of courses played exceeds 750. My wife no longer thinks the golf ball collection from courses played is a good hobby.
    • So maybe I give the whetstone a try before getting Scott’s flux capacitor Ken Onion sharpener?
    • Any lions on the course? I have never visited Zambia, just see nature shows about the country, but have been to SA, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Kenya, and Tanzania, on safaris. Zambia sounds like a good safari destination.
    • My wife convinced me to buy some Cutco knives.   They will actually come to the house to sharpen our knives for the life of the knives.   They weren't cheap but work extremely well.
