Tiger Woods was driving close to double the 45mph speed limit when he crashed in February, according to Los Angeles County’s sheriff.
The 15-time major champion, aged 45, had to be “extricated from the wreck” of his car by firefighters and paramedics.
Woods’ car left the road at about 84 to 87mph and flipped several times during the accident in California.
Woods was released from hospital earlier this month after sustaining a number of serious injuries.
There was no evidence Woods had been impaired by drugs or alcohol at the time of the crash.
LA County sheriff Alex Villanueva said the primary causal factor for the traffic collision was driving at a speed unsafe for the road conditions and the inability to negotiate the curve of the roadway.
Woods’ car crossed the centre-divider before coming to rest several hundred feet away, having hit a tree and rolling several times during the accident in Ranchos Palos Verdes.
