PGA stars will don Tiger Woods’ famous red and black clothing combo in his honor this Sunday. Woods suffered traumatic injuries this past Tuesday in a single-car crash. A timetable for his return to golf, or even simply walking, is unknown.

Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas headline a group of golfers set to honor Tiger at the WGC-World Championship. Collin Morikawa and Patrick Reed are amongst the others who expressed interest in honoring Tiger.

Morikawa currently sits in first at 15 under par. Brooks Koepka and Billy Horschel narrowly trail in second at 13 under par.

Woods made his red shirt and black pants combo famous as he consistently wore the outfit on Sunday match days. He credited the iconic fit to his mother, who encouraged that her son wears the color as a child.

Fellow golfer Max Homa also planned to honor Woods, but he tweeted that he didn’t hear the news on time to pack red and black attire.

Woods underwent a successful operation following the crash and is currently “in good spirits.”
