During the Sunday finale of the WGC-Workday Championship, several marquee players are expected to honor Tiger Woods by donning his iconic Sunday red and black color script.

Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis first reported the tribute plans on Twitter. According to Lewis, those confirmed include 54-hole leader Collin Morikawa, as well as Patrick Reed and Rory McIlroy, who are tied for fifth, and just four off the lead. The rivals will be paired together in one of Sunday’s featured groupings.

Woods, 45, sustained serious injuries in a single-vehicle crash on Tuesday morning, and reportedly suffered multiple “open fractures” (bone through skin) to his lower right leg which required a rod inserted in his tibia. He also needed screws and pins implanted to stabilize his ankle and foot.

The golf star, who underwent comprehensive emergency surgery at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, was transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in downtown Los Angeles on Wednesday evening, per ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.

He is expected to remain at the renowned L.A. medical facility as part of his post-op “orthopedic care and recovery,” according to Dr. Anish Mahajan.
