When Steph Curry received a text message about Tiger Woods’ car accident Tuesday morning, he said his mind went to a dark place. Luckily, Woods survived his one-car accident in Southern California and reportedly underwent surgery for moderate to critical injuries to his legs.
Following Tuesday night’s 114-106 win over the New York Knicks, Curry offered his best wishes to Woods during a video conference with reporters.
“Thankfully he didn’t have any life-threatening injuries, but it’s just unfortunate and sad knowing all he’s been through these last couple years,” Curry said. “Thankfully he’s OK from what I hear. I don’t know too many details, but you just wish for a speedy recovery, because at this point, I’m a huge golf fan, we all know that, and love watching him play and being on the tour and competing.”
From one sports great to another.
Both Curry and Woods know what it’s like to be at the summit of their respective sports. While Woods had a tumble following his messy public divorce with his wife in 2010, his comeback was highlighted by winning the 2019 Masters. Now, the sports world simply hopes he’ll be able to get back on the golf course.
Late Tuesday night, a statement was issued from Woods' Twitter account.
Health comes first. As Curry noted with reporters, this is situation is more important than awaiting Woods’ return to the links.
“At this point, it’s not about golf, it’s about his quality of life and being there for his kids,” Curry said. “That’s the most important thing right now. Hopefully he makes a full recovery to be there for them. He’s got a lot of life to live.”
