Rory McIlroy was among several golfers who chose to wear red and black in honour of Tiger Woods for the final round of the WGC-Workday Championship on Sunday.

Woods, who is recovering in hospital in Los Angeles following a serious car accident on Tuesday, famously wears a red shirt and black trousers on tournament Sundays. 

As well as McIlroy, Woods’ fellow Nike golfers Tommy Fleetwood and Cameron Champ donned the red and black, Fleetwood even going as far as sporting the roll-neck shirt that Woods is renowned for.

The 45-year-old is recovering and in ‘good spirits’ following the crash that left the world of sport in complete shock.  

McIlroy went into the final round at The Concession Golf Club four shots behind US PGA champion Collin Morikawa.
