World No 2 Rahm noted that Woods' legacy is secure

Four-time major champion Rory McIlroy said Wednesday that questions over Tiger Woods' golfing future are immaterial as the superstar fights to recover from serious leg injuries sustained in a car crash.

Northern Ireland's McIlroy told reporters this at the World Golf Championships Workday Championship at Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Florida.

McIlroy echoed the thoughts of US PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan, who said his energies would be devoted to supporting Woods in whatever way possible.

Monahan said it was "too soon" to think about the PGA Tour withoutWoods, whose 82 PGA Tour titles include 15 major championships.

Woods was recovering in hospital in Los Angeles Wednesday after surgery for "significant orthopedic injuries" to his lower right leg and ankle.

US golf legend Tiger Woods was recovering in hospital Wednesday after surgery for serious leg injuries sustained in a car crash that have raised fears for the 45-year-old's career.

This included the insertion of a rod into his shin bone and the use of screws and pins to stabilize his foot and ankle, doctors said.

Law enforcement officials who responded to the crash in a Los Angeles suburb said Woods was lucky to survive when his SUV left the steep, curving road, rolling over several times.

Monahan recalled his shock at being notified by telephone of the crash and the period of uncertainty as to whether Woods' injuries were life-threatening.

World No 4 Xander Schauffele described the "somber" mood on the practice green Tuesday and said it was still unusually "quiet" on the course Wednesday.

But even if that's the case, world No 2 Jon Rahm noted that Woods' legacy is secure.
