Days after a horrific car crash that sent one of the greatest players in the history of the game to the hospital for multiple surgeries, players around the professional golf world are rallying to show their support on Sunday.

Rory McIlroy is wearing red and black on Sunday to show support for Tiger Woods, who was involved in a single-vehicle rollover car crash on Tuesday.

Woods had emergency surgery to deal with multiple injuries to his right leg, ankle, and foot. According to a statement his team released Friday night, he is recovering and in good spirits following more procedures to his leg.

Woods, the 15-time major champion and winner of a record-tying 82 PGA Tour titles, famously wore a red shirt and black pants on Sundays. That’s why McIlroy will don a similar outfit, he told Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis, for the final round of the World Golf Championships-Workday Championship in Bradenton, Fla.

Add Patrick Reed to the list. He also told Lewis he is “definitely” wearing red and black in honor of Woods.

And World Golf Hall of Famer Annika Sorenstam, who is playing her first LPGA Tour tournament in 13 years, will wear red and black in the final round of the Gainbridge LPGA in Orlando.
