Woods was in the area for the Genesis Invitational golf tournament at the Riviera Country Club in the Pacific Palisades before the incident happened.
Earlier this week, David Spade posed for a photo with Woods during a golf lesson.
He also made his first public appearance just days ago after undergoing back surgery.
Woods provided an update about his condition with CBS during the final round of the Genesis Invitational.
"I'm feeling fine, little bit stiff," Woods said. "Have one more MRI scheduled to see if the annulus has scarred over finally, and then I can start doing more activities.
"Still in the gym, still doing the mundane stuff that you have to do for rehab, the little things before you can start gravitating towards something a little more."6Footage from the scene showed a Bentley on its side with the front of the vehicle crushedCredit: ABC 6The LA County Sheriff's Department confirmed that Woods was the driver of a vehicle

‘Nobody Is Unbeatable’ – Billy Joe Saunders Feels Ready for Canelo Alvarez
Billy Joe Saunders has explained his decision to take on P4P star Canelo Alvarez. The WBO super-middleweight champion respected his fellow champion, but claimed he has what it takes to beat him. He also explained how he would beat him.LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – MAY 04: Canelo Alvarez during his unanimous decision win over Daniel Jacobs in their middleweight unification fight at T-Mobile Arena on May 04, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The two champions have long been rumored to face each other. However, following Alvarez’s win over Avni Yildirim, they officially announced the fight. The Englishman has now explained why he took up the challenge against Alvarez.
Saunders spoke to BoxingScene and explained that to be great, you have to dare to beat the other greats. He then added, “I believe I am the only one with the footwork, knowhow, skillset, mindset and brain to unlock that door in Canelo.”
The talented southpaw then admitted that the WBA and WBC champion is the main man in the sport. However, he showed that Alvarez doesn’t intimidate him.
“You have to give him respect, he hasn’t ducked anyone, he’s beaten good names, but nobody is unbeatable, and I believe I have got the tools to beat him,” said Saunders.

Going by his comments, the super-middleweight champion did not hide the amount of respect he had for his fellow champion. Therefore, it showed that he knows how tough this fight will be. So taking this fight will do a lot of good for Saunders.
The Britisher has had a career filled with controversy and criticism. He spent time out from the sport for testing positive for a banned substance. In addition, Saunders has had his fair share of controversies outside boxing.
If he can beat Alvarez, the WBO champion will etch his name into boxing history forever. As ‘Superb’ rightly said, the Mexican is the undoubted star in the sport. Hence, a win over him would mean that the Englishman was right about his ability all along.
Fans can expect the respectful talk to end very soon, as Saunders is famous for his trash talk.
What do you make of these comments from Billy Joe Saunders? Do you think he has what it takes to beat Canelo Alvarez?
