Third-ranked Justin Thomas was stunned to learn of serious injuries to Woods, the 45-year-old US star whose 82 career US PGA titles is level with Sam Snead for the all-time record.
"I hope Tiger is all right," third-ranked Justin Thomas said. "Yeah, I'm sick to my stomach.
"You know, it hurts to see one of your -- now one of my closest friends get in an accident. Man, I just hope he's all right. Just worry for his kids, you know. I'm sure they're struggling."
Woods played in an event with his son Charlie in December just before undergoing his fifth back surgery, a microdiscectomy he hoped would heal him in time to play at the Masters in April.
"We have been made aware of Tiger Woods' car accident today," PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said.
"We are awaiting further information when he comes out of surgery. On behalf of the PGA Tour and our players, Tiger is in our prayers and will have our full support as he recovers."
Woods, whose most recent victory at the 2019 Zozo Championship in Japan, overcame back surgery to win the 2019 Masters and complete an epic comeback when he feared back pain might deprive him of a normal life.
"@tigerwoods, just seen the awful news. We know how tough you are, we've seen it a hundred times," England's Justin Rose tweeted. "Hoping and praying you’re ok my friend."
"Thoughts are with @TigerWoods and others involved, wishing a speedy recovery and I hope the injuries are not bad," England's Ian Poulter tweeted.
Taiwan's C.T. Pan simply tweeted three "hands in prayer" emojis and a link to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department news release telling about Woods being injured in the crash.
"Prayers up for @TigerWoods," tweeted Harris English.
PGA Tour player Will Wilcox simply tweeted: "TIGER!!!!! NOOOOOOOOO"
It wasn't only the golf world that was wishing the best for Woods.
Actress Jada Pinkett Smith, who had been at a golf event with Woods on Monday, tweeted: "Prayers up for the GOAT @TigerWoods who was in an accident this morning. Was just with him yesterday. Don't take not even a MOMENT for granted! I know you’re good because your Tiger within is a beast!!!"

During Sunday’s final rounds, players in the World Golf Championships-Workday Championship, Puerto Rico Open and Gainbridge LPGA showed their support for Woods in various ways.
Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Justin Thomas, Tony Finau, Patrick Reed, Tommy Fleetwood, Scottie Scheffler, Carlos Ortiz, and Cameron Champ rocked similar versions of his signature Sunday-red shirt and black pants. Billy Horschel had “TW” etched on his hat while Matt Kuchar, Jason Day and Bryson DeChambeau played with golf balls stamped with “TIGER.”
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 Woods (@TigerWoods) March 1, 2021 Golfers on supporting Tiger
Rory McIlroy: “It’s just a gesture to let him know that we’re thinking about him and we’re rooting for him. Obviously things are looking a little better today than they were on Tuesday, but he’s still got aways to go. He’s got a huge recovery ahead of him.”
Tony Finau: “We’ve enjoyed so many Sundays watching Tiger do his thing. Red and black, we know that’s what Tiger does on Sundays, so to just join in and just let Tiger know we’re supporting him in the best way we can. We’re still playing and we miss him out here, but it was cool just to be a part of that today.”
Sebastian Munoz: “He was my idol. He’s the reason I played golf today. It’s just a little tribute I wanted to pay to him today, just how much his life and his work have impacted my life.”
Jason Day: “Just paying respect to Tiger. Obviously we hope for the best in wishing him a very quick recovery, just wanted him to know that we’re thinking about him.”
Justin Thomas: “I think it’s just important for him to feel some kind of support. I think this shows support to him. It’s not something that’s going to happen every week, it’s not something that people are doing every day, but obviously Sunday’s a pretty special day for him and what he’s wearing and just seemed like a great chance that people had the opportunity to do it.”
