Tiger Woods is lucky to be alive.
As you have almost certainly heard by now, Woods was involved in a single-vehicle crash nearly a week ago that left him hospitalized with compound fractures in his tibia and fibula.
On Sunday, during the Cologuard Classic golf tournament, a number of golfers, including Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy, wore a red shirt with black pants to pay tribute to Tiger.

Upon catching wind of what his fellow players were doing, Tiger took to Twitter to thank them and to thank all of his fans who have supported him during this difficult time.
“It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the tv and saw all the red shirts. To every golfer and every fan, you are truly helping me get through this tough time.” Tiger tweeted on Sunday night.
