Rory pays tribute with the famous red and black

Numerous players from the men and women's game donned the famous red and black combination - the colours Wood is famous for wearing in the final round of tournaments.
Rory McIlroy, Tony Finau, Tommy Fleetwood and Patrick Reed were among those who wore red and black while competing at the WGC-Workday Championship in Florida, won by USA's Collin Morikawa.

Woods family had put out a statement stating  that the former world number one had undergone further procedures that had been successful and that he was in good spirits.

Woods clearly has a long way to go and it is still unclear if the injuries will be career ending.
Collin Morikawa who matched Tiger by winning both a major and a WGC title before the age of 25 paid tribute to his hero.
"Tiger means everything to me," said Morikawa. "I don't think we say thank you enough, so I want to say thank you to Tiger."
It was not just the players that paid tribute to Woods, the maintenance staff at the Puerto Rico Open also wore red and black on Sunday.

Woods himself took to Twitter having seen the sea of red on his TV screen.
"It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the TV and saw all the red shirts," Woods tweeted.
