A caddie paid tribute to links legend Tiger Woods on Wednesday at Scotland’s famed St. Andrews golf course, writing well wishes in the sand of a bunker one day after the athlete’s California car crash.

Woods, 45, suffered serious, potentially career-ending leg injuries when he rolled a Genesis GV80 SUV in Los Angeles County early Tuesday.

With Woods on the mend, a caddie at the Old Course at St. Andrews — considered hallowed ground in the sports world as the birthplace of golf — inscribed an elaborate sand-art tribute in one of the course’s bunkers.

The massive crest-like work includes Woods’ stylized “TW” initial logo, above a message of “Thoughts & Prayers.”

The artist, American expat Robert Ogle III, told ESPN that the project took about one hour — and two rakes — to complete.

“Tiger means so much to the sports world, this is the least I could do, for what he has given me: focus, determination, perseverance [and] confidence,” Ogle — who honed his skills on the grounds crew of Oregon’s Portland Golf Club — told the network.

Woods has notched two of his 15 victories in golf majors at St. Andrews, clinching the Open Championship at the course in 2000 and 2005.
