American Professional golfer Tiger Woods is in surgery after a car accident on Tuesday morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries.

Woods was conscious and responsive when he was removed from the wreckage by the local fire department early on Tuesday morning before he was rushed to hospital in a "serious condition".

Although his injuries have been described as "non-life-threatening", it was reported that he was undergoing surgery at the nearby Harbor-UCLA Medical Center for multiple compound fractures in both legs and a shattered ankle.

Medical authorities are expected to provide an update on the extent of his injuries following surgery.

The accident happened shortly after 7am Pacific Time when Woods was driving, no passengers, no other vehicles involved.

He lost control of his car "at high speed", the vehicle rolled several times and sustained "extensive damage"

He was conscious and able to communicate when emergency services arrived at the scene
