  • Tiger Woods was in a car accident near Los Angeles and suffered serious injuries to both his legs.
  • Following the news of the accident, Jada Pinkett Smith said she's sending "prayers up for the GOAT" as she shared she was with him just one day before.
  • Jada, Dwyane Wade and David Spade received private golfing lessons from the pro athlete for a Golf Digest and GOLFTV project.
  • "Don't take not even a MOMENT for granted!" Jada said reflecting on their day together.


A day before Tiger Woods' car accident near Los Angeles, the golfing giant was out on the course with Dwyane Wade, David Spade and Jada Pinkett Smith.

The 45-year-old suffered serious injuries to both his legs after his car flew off the road and flipped several times on Tuesday. He was travelling at "a greater speed than normal" but did not appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol when he was found conscious trapped in his car at the scene, which is said to be a hotspot for accidents.

"I will say that it's very fortunate that Mr Woods was able to come out of this alive," Carlos Gonzalez, the first officer to arrive on the scene and find Tiger trapped in his car, said.

Now, Jada Pinkett Smith is sending "prayers up for the GOAT," she said on Twitter on Tuesday. "Was just with him yesterday. Don't take not even a MOMENT for granted! I know you're good because your Tiger within is a beast!!!" she wrote.

Jada, with Dwyane Wade and David Spade, took personal golfing lessons from Tiger for a Golf Digest and GOLFTV project, reports E! News, just 24 hours before the accident.

Dwyane shared a video with the pro golfer on Instagram, thanking him for giving him lessons, while another post called it "a pretty cool day" and "dope opportunity".

David Spade quipped, sharing selfies with Tiger: "Don't you hate when you go golf somewhere and they pair you up with someone you don't know."
