Tiger Woods was en route to film a documentary when he had his own fatal California accident – according to a report, why he was behind the wheel and why not in a chaotic-driven limo.
The 45-year-old golf legend was on his way to Rolling Hills Country Club on Tuesday for his second day of shooting with Hollywood director Peter Berg. Confirmed in an instagram post Hours after the accident.
“We shot with Tiger [Monday] And he was charming, giving and full of life. He was professional and f-ing awesome, ”Berg wrote with a photo of him.
“Today he has not made it to the set and we are a hearty crew,” he wrote, calling the game great “love and deep appreciation.”
Berg, as well as NFL stars Drew Tree and Justin Herbert, were awaiting Woods, who was set to take golf lessons for a documentary-style series called “Tiger Woods: My Game,”. The Los Angeles Times said.
The report states that Sportsman, Berg, and his crew waited two hours with no idea that Woods was killed in the crash.
The fact that Woods was filming a show destined for GolfTV and Discovery + raises questions about why he was driving himself, especially given his history of car accidents, La Papers said.
The report states that Discovery typically provides transportation for the stars of its productions – and a big-budget project was launched for a decidedly used series.
Union officials said the initial budget would have made it a unionized project, meaning Teamsters driver Tiger Woods and any other talent or crew could go to the location of the film.
The newspaper said the Woods series was cut for a low-budget fly-on-the-wall project with a non-union crew.
However, the outlet noted – despite his history on the road – Woods himself is known in golfing circles for liking driving.
“It’s not a question for Discovery – it’s a question for Tiger’s team,” said Fiona McLachlan, London’s senior vice president for sports communications for Discovery.
Woods gave lessons to actor David Spade, actress Jada Pinkett Smith and former NBA star Dwayne Wade on the first day of shooting on Monday. He could not play himself due to a back injury.
“Everyone at Discovery wishes Tiger a quick recovery and our thoughts are with him, his family and his team,” Discovery said in a statement.
