Tiger Woods' ex-girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn, tweeted a message of support to the legendary golfer after his car crash on Tuesday.

The incident sparked an outpouring of support from throughout the sporting world, with countless messages sent over social media.
And Vonn, the ex-girlfriend of Woods, was one of those to send a message to the 45-year-old.
The skier, who dated Woods for three years before a split in 2015, posted to Twitter: "Praying for TV right now."
Authorities were first alerted to the crash by a local resident, who heard the incident unfold and immediately called 911.
The County Sheriff's department confirmed Woods' car had sustained "major damage".
