PHOTOS: Golfers honor Tiger Woods by wearing red and black at Puerto Rico Open and WGC-Workday Championship

February 28

The past week has been a tumultuous one for Tiger Woods and the golf world.

The PGA legend was involved in a single-car accident on Feb. 23 that required immediate emergency surgery on both of his legs to repair two bone fractures and a shattered ankle.

With Woods now on the long road to recovery – a journey detailed by FOX Sports injury expert Dr. Matt Provencher – the golf world showed its love and support for their sidelined legend at Sunday's Puerto Rico Open and World Golf Championships-Workday Championship.

Golfers and grounds crews donned the iconic red shirt and black trousers look that Woods became known for when he competed on Sundays, often at the front of the pack in tournaments.

Some of the biggest names in the sport, including Rory McIlroy, Cameron Champ, and Jason Day, took part in the gesture Sunday.

The winner of the WGC-Workday, Collin Morikawa, paid tribute to Woods following his 3-stroke victory.

Woods expressed his gratitude on social media following the outpouring of support from his fellow golfers.

Woods began to wear the red-and-black combo after his mother, Tida, suggested it to him when he was young, and it became his signature look as his career progressed.

He is a 15-time major champion, with many of his most iconic wins secured in his Sunday red – wins such as the 2008 U.S. Open and the 2019 Masters.

Golfers including Day, Bryson DeChambeau and Matt Kuchar also paid homage to Woods by using a Bridgestone golf ball with Woods' name engraved on it.

Take a look at some of the ways golfers honored Woods in Sunday red.
