Former President Donald Trump has said he believes that pro-golfer Tiger Woods “will be back” following a Tuesday car crash that reportedly injured Woods’ legs. He also added that Woods once gave him golfing tips while they played together.
Woods suffered serious injuries to his legs after a single-vehicle car crash near Los Angeles on Tuesday morning. Woods was reportedly wearing his seatbelt and was not impaired, according to the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department. Woods was taken to the Harbor-UCLA Trauma Center.
“He’s overcome a lot,” Trump said in a Tuesday Fox News interview, speaking about Woods’ crash. “He’s had an incredible life and he’s going to continue to have an incredible life…. He’ll recover from this…. He’s gonna be back. I have no doubt about it. He’s gonna be back.”
Trump said that he believed in Woods’ ability to recover from the crash because the golfer won the 2019 Masters Tournament despite having a previous back injury.
The former president also said that Woods had once given him tips while they played together. Trump added that Woods “always” provides such pointers when playing with others.
On May 6, 2019, shortly after winning the Masters, Trump awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Woods has said that he respects the office of the president, whether or not you agree with the president’s politics or personal beliefs.
