Tiger Woods was behind the wheel of a Genesis GV80 SUV at the time of his nasty Tuesday morning car crash in California — just days after appearing at a golf tournament sponsored by the luxury auto brand.
The 45-year-old links legend rolled the SUV around 7:12 a.m. outside Los Angeles, leaving him hospitalized and in need of surgery for multiple leg injuries, officials have said.
Photos and video of the aftermath show the mangled wreck of the luxury ride, which The Los Angeles Times, citing authorities, identified as a Genesis GV80.
Genesis’ first SUV, the GV80 retails starting at $48,900, according to the manufacturer .
Woods was in California for the Genesis Invitational golf tournament, which wrapped over the weekend, and on Saturday was featured in an Instagram post by the company, beaming alongside a glimmering GV80.
“The man, the myth, the tournament host,” Genesis captioned the photo.
Woods and the GV80 were pictured together in another Instagram post on Sunday, along with tournament winner Max Homa.
“Champion golfer with a champion ride,” Genesis captioned that shot. “Our Genesis Invitational champion @Max.Homa celebrates his astounding victory at The Riviera Country Club alongside tournament host @TigerWoods and Genesis Motor North America CEO Mark Del Rosso.”
It was not immediately clear whether the vehicle Woods crashed was the same one with which he posed in either photo.
