Tiger Woods is just fine, thank you! The uber-pro golfer was treated for facial lacerations Friday after running into a fire hydrant and a tree in his Cadillac SUV around 2:25 a.m.

The mayor of Windermere, where Woods lives, told CNN that police arrived within two minutes of being notified.


And we know you’re thinking it, at that time of night after a holiday, so -- the Florida Highway Patrol said that alcohol did not appear to be a factor, though the accident is under investigation.

Nobody’s seriously hurt (except maybe the fire hydrant and the tree?) so we’re gonna say it: Life is good when the police show up in two minutes, the mayor does your PR for you, and you crash your GM vehicle well after your endorsement contract is up.

Heal up, Tiger!
