Tiger Woods was on his way to see NFL stars before accident

Tiger Woods was on his way to play golf with NFL stars Drew Brees and Justin Herbert when he was involved in a one-car accident Tuesday that saw the golf legend hospitalized with leg injuries.

The 45-year-old Woods also was expected to take part in a photoshoot with the two quarterbacks, according to multiple reports.

Woods was conscious and alert as he was pulled through the windshield of his damaged SUV in Rancho Palos Verdes, outside of Los Angeles.

A Fire Department spokesperson told The Post they used an axe and another hand tool to pry the windshield out and extricate him. 

Woods’ injuries, which include a compound fracture, according to the New York Times, were not considered life-threatening.

Woods was the only person in the car, officials said.

He was in Los Angeles for last weekend’s Genesis Invitational and on Sunday handed the trophy to winner Max Homa.

Woods also was in the midst of a two-day content shoot with Golf Digest and GOLFTV.

A day before the accident, Woods gave on-course golf lessons to celebrities at Rolling Hills Country Club, including ex-NBA star Dwyane Wade and actor David Spade.

The 15-time major-winner underwent a fifth back surgery in December and his status for The Masters in April was up in the air.

Brees, the 42-year-old New Orleans Saints legend, is expected to retire this offseason.
