Dustin Johnson offers prayers to Tiger Woods and family

World Number one Dustin Johnson has extended his prayers to Tiger Woods and his family following his car accident.

Johnson has joined the chorus of well-wishes for the 15-time major winner, who suffered a serious car accident earlier this week.

“First reaction is that I hope he’s ok and it’s not too serious,” the 24-time PGA Tour winner told the press on the eve of the WGC-Mexico Championship.

“I still don’t know exactly what the injuries are and how bad they are. I don’t think anybody does. Prayers go out to him and his family and hopefully everything works out.

“Obviously its a terrible situation and you never want anything bad to happen to people. Hoping for a speedy recovery. He’s such a big part of the PGA Tour and what it’s become today.

“Once he’s not playing anymore the game will miss him but I feel he will somehow always be involved in the game, at least for a little while.”

Johnson is set to tee off at the Concession Golf Course alongside fellow Americans Brooks Koepka and Daniel Berger on Thursday.
