TIGER Woods almost hit the director for the television show ‘Grown-ish’ mere minutes before he ended up in a horrific rollover crash while speeding down a Los Angeles street Tuesday morning.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, a crew member on the hit TV show ‘Grown-ish’ said the 45-year-old golf player had been staying at the same resort the television crew were staying in, and added Woods almost slammed into the show’s director while leaving the resort this morning.
“He really did nearly hit the director’s car, too, when he left this morning, which shook us up because of Tiger crashing his car before,” the crew member told The Sun.
The crew member said “it’s just a coincidence” that Woods was staying at the Terranea resort in Rancho Palos Verdes as the crew, and that “he isn’t part of the production at all.”
They added, “When we arrived here yesterday some of the guys were talking about Tiger staying here, too, and they were quite excited about it.”
Upon hearing that mere minutes after their encounter with Woods, the star athlete had been involved in a severe crash, the crew member said the whole set was affected.
“We’re upset by what’s happened,” the crew member said. “Tiger’s surgery sounds major from what we’ve heard.”
The crew member said ‘Grown-ish’ would continue filming at the resort all week.
According to TMZ, Woods was in rush when he left the resort this morning, with other members on the TV set saying he seemed “agitated and impatient” as he drove off.
The crew member said when Woods entered his car to get away, he had to wait as another car blocked his while it loaded luggage.
Once the car moved, Woods “took off fast.”
According to Golf Digest, Woods was then supposed to arrive at the Riviera Golf Course at 7:30AM for a photo shoot.
He was also set to give Drew Brees lessons.
The resort is about an hour away from the golf course.
