Tiger Woods was found unconscious after his car crash in California last month, it has emerged.
A man who lives nearby said he heard the crash and walked to the scene where he found the golfer with his face and chin covered in blood, court documents based on a police affidavit show.
He said he tried to speak to the champion but did not get a response.
Woods required lengthy surgery to a fractured leg and shattered ankle after the accident in Los Angeles County.
Police have said there was no evidence that he was impaired by drugs or alcohol.
The first emergency crews who arrived at the scene reported that Woods was “calm and lucid” as he was cut from the wreck of the SUV.
