This past weekend, Tiger Woods took to Twitter to express his gratitude to his fellow PGA Tour golfers who honored him at the WGC-Workday Championship Sunday wearing Woods’ iconic red shirt and black pants combo. Over the years, the outfit has been synonymous with the athlete’s game.

Woods writes in his first statement since the accident, “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.”

Last week, he was in a single-car crash in California and sustained a number of injuries. Immediately after the accident, he was admitted for extensive surgery to repair several fractures on his right leg and ankle. Reports indicated that he was recovering well.

Athletes throughout the golf sport were pictured adorned in their best red and blacks, showcasing their support for Tiger Woods. In the pictures below, golfers including Cameron Champ, Tommy Fleetwood, Tony Finau, Jason Day, Sebastian Munoz, Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas are all seen paying homage to the golf legend at this weekend’s championship.
