(CNN)In the aftermath of Tiger Woods' car crash, the golf world has been coming to terms with the physical and psychological impact on the 15-time major winner and what it also means for the sport.

The 45-year-old is awake and recovering from surgery after being involved in a serious car accident on Tuesday near Los Angeles.

In the aftermath of the crash, Los Angeles County Sherriff Alex Villanueva told CNN's Erin Burnett the single-car crash was "purely an accident," and investigators will not pursue any charges.

He also said Woods told investigators Tuesday at a hospital that "he had no recollection of the crash. "

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan emphasized that while he'd love to see Woods on the golf course in the future, thoughts should be with his family.

Tiger's had some really difficult injuries -- the most important thing is, you know, is his well-being.

It's Tiger recovering, it's supporting Tiger's family.

The golf -- when Tiger wants to talk about the golf, we'll talk about the golf.

Given the grisly nature of the crash, former world No. 1 Jon Rahm said he is just appreciative that Woods is alive at all.

He's given everything to this game, he's done so much for us, and every day that we're all out here is going to be a memory of Tiger Woods.
