Multiple golfers, including Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Tony Finau, wore red shirts and black pants in honor of Tiger Woods for Sunday’s final round of the WGC-Workday Championship in Bradenton, Fla. The 45-year-old Woods was involved in a single-vehicle rollover crash last week that left him with serious leg injuries including multiple “open fractures” to his lower right leg and had a rod put in his tibia. Woods is still hospitalized in Southern California.
The entire PGA Tour grounds crew at the Puerto Rico Championship donned red and black for Woods, who traditionally has worn those colors on Sunday dating back to the early parts of his professional career. Among the golfers who arrived in red Sunday were Jason Day, Tommy Fleetwood, Cameron Champ, Sebastian Munoz, Patrick Reed, McIlroy and Finau. Bryson DeChambeau, Matt Kuchar and Day also used a Bridgestone golf ball with Woods’ name stamped on the side to further honor the legendary golfer.
24-year-old Collin Morikawa finished at 18-under par to win the WGC-Workday Championship on Sunday. Brooks Koepka, Viktor Hovland and Billy Horschel were 15-under par to end in a tie for second.
