Tiger Woods is moved to new hospital in Los Angeles

Tiger Woods has been transferred from Harbor-UCLA Medical Center to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center as he continues to recover from surgery following his shocking car crash in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning. 

Woods, 45, sustained major injuries with shattered tibia and fibula bones on his right leg in multiple locations, stabilised by a rod in the tibia.  A combination of screws and pins were also used to stabilise additional injuries in his ankle and foot.

"Tiger Woods was transfered to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for continuing orthopedic care and recovery," said Harbor-UCLA Medical Center interim CEO Anish Mahajan. 

"It was an honour to provide orthopedic trauma care to one of our generation's greatest athletes."

Woods is said to have "no recollection" of the car crash, according to LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva, and he also confirmed that the former World No.1 is unlikely to face any criminal charges - READ HERE

Notah Begay, former PGA Tour pro and close friend of Woods, has told the media that Woods is now past the "critical" recovery phase and that he is up talking to family and friends. 

"The good news is Tiger has moved to a critical part in this whole recovery phase," said Begay. "He is post-surgery now and nothing seems to be critical at the moment.

"The most important thing is that he has also been able to receive some communication from family and some limited visitation, trying to create this safety net and support network around him to try and push him through this whole situation."
