The publicist for Tiger Woods said Friday afternoon that the world's No. 1 golfer was treated and released from the hospital in 'good condition' following an early morning accident outside his Orlando-area home. Glenn Greenspan, Woods' publicist added that the accident was 'minor' in nature. A Florida Highway Patrol report initially indicated Woods, 33, was seriously injured after backing his Cadillac Escalade out of his driveway in the Windermere gated community in Islesworth, Fla. The Windermere police chief told the Associated Press that Woods was found going in and out of consciousness by his wife at approximately 2:30 this morning after hitting a fire hydrant and tree and crashing into his neighbor's property. Authorities added that his wife used a golf club to smash out the back window and help get him out of the SUV. Woods is scheduled to participate in his own tournament next weekend.
