President Donald Trump urged legendary golfer Tiger Woods to “get well soon” after he was injured in a rollover accident and transported to the hospital on Tuesday.

“Get well soon, Tiger. You are a true champion!” Trump wrote in a short statement distributed by his adviser Jason Miller on Twitter.

The extent of Wood’s injuries is currently unknown, although there were conflicting reports of first responders having to use the “jaws of life” to cut him out of his vehicle.

President Trump had positive, uplifting words for his good friend Tiger.

Toward the end of the interview, Trump told Fox News host Katie Pavlich what he would say if Tiger was watching: “Get better and get out there, because we all miss him. We need Tiger, you know, when Tiger goes on the show, when he is in contention, which is often, the ratings are double and triple.”


President Trump is a huge fan of Woods, even awarding him the Medal of Freedom in May 2019.

“We are in the presence of a true legend, an extraordinary athlete who has transformed golf and achieved new levels of dominance,” Trump said during the ceremony. “He’s also a great person. He’s a great guy.”

In February 2019, Trump also golfed with Woods at his club in Palm Beach.
