Tiger Finds Red Shirt Salute 'Touching,' Thanks Players And Fans

By now, everyone knows about Tiger Woods' serious car accident last week. What you may not know, however, is that several golfers and staff personnel wore red at the WGC-Workday Championship on Sunday to honor the golf legend.

It was a way for the tradition to carry on without Tiger, who is still recovering from his injuries. He's known for wearing red on Sundays, and it was a great way for those involved with the sport to show he was in their thoughts.

Among those wearing red were Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, and several others.

Even the maintenance staff at the Puerto Rico Open wore it.

That outpouring of support garnered a response from Woods on Sunday evening.

"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," Woods tweeted out.

It was once again an incredible moment for one of the best professional athletes of all time. It's hard to imagine what Woods is going through, but support goes a long way in a road back to recovery -- and he has plenty of it.
