AMAZING pictures show a giant message of support to Tiger Woods carved into the sand on a Scottish beach – 5,181 miles away from his crash site.

The beautiful artwork appeared on West Sands beach in St Andrews, Fife yesterday after being crafted by a local artist using only a rake.

Robert Lloyd Ogle decided to carve the amazing feature into the sands after finding out that Tiger Woods had been hospitalised with serious injuries from a car crash in California.

Robert shared images of his creation onto his Instagram account yesterday,writing: “To a healthy, fast and superb recovery!”

It took Robert only one hour to create the amazing mural.

The artwork shows Tiger’s famous brand stamp which is a T and W transformed into one insignia.

The words thoughts and prayers are inscribed below the golfers logo.

Social media users could not believe their eyes.

The US golfing champion was driving alone on a Los Angeles downhill stretch of road known for crashes.

His vehicle hit the central reservation, crossed into the opposite lane, rolled over several times and then plunged off the road and down an embankment.
