Tiger Woods has had more procedures on injures sustained in a car crash on Tuesday, a statement on his Twitter account announced.

Woods was moved from Harbor-UCLA Medical Center to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Thursday and had the new surgeries there. He was initially transported to Harbor-UCLA by ambulance after the crash, where he underwent multiple hours of emergency surgery that required inserting a rod into his right leg to stabilize multiple breaks in his tibia and fibula.

Woods is "recovering and in good spirits" following his latest operations, Friday's statement reads.

Woods was injured when a car he was driving crossed a median, hit a tree and landed on its side early Tuesday morning outside Los Angeles. He was conscious but unable to walk when emergency personal arrived on the scene.

Woods was not impaired at the time of the accident, but no official cause has been determined yet. Officials say the area where the accident took place has a dangerous reputation due to slopes and curves on the roadway.
