Woods has worn red shirts for the final rounds of tournaments throughout his career, leading to plenty of memorable moments on his way to 15 major championships.

The 45-year-old was hospitalized on Tuesday after a single-car accident led to "significant" leg injuries and extensive surgery. A statement said Woods was "recovering and in good spirits."
