Tiger's Wife Changed Her Story

11/28/2009 10:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, changed the story she told the first officer on the scene, according to law enforcement sources.

The Windemere Police Department says Tiger's wife went outside, saw that her husband had struck a fire hydrant and a tree, and then went back inside the house for a golf club to use to try and extricate him from the vehicle. But we've learned Nordegren told a very different story to the Florida Highway Patrol, and it does not involve going back in the house for a club. Our sources will not allow us to be more specific.

Tiger WoodsAnd we've learned there was no blood found on the steering wheel of Tiger's SUV -- putting into serious doubt that Tiger sustained his injuries from the crash.

As we first reported, Tiger had a conversation with a friend yesterday, in which he said his wife had confronted him over reports he was involved with another woman ... and that his wife scratched his face up during the argument. Tiger told the friend he then left the house, started driving off and his wife then came out with a golf club, striking the vehicle. Tiger then became distracted and hit the hydrant and then a nearby tree.

We're told cops will interview Tiger and his wife later today.

UPDATE: A neighbor tells TMZ they saw cops show up at Tiger's house this morning -- only to get turned away again. Tiger's wife, Elin, was spotted (below) driving out of the Isleworth subdivision in Windermere earlier today.

(In retrospect):
Let's see... One of the earliest located stories addressing human kind battle with ourselves over doing the right thing ""always""... With no exceptions..... Could it be Adam and Eve... Gen.,3, Ch 3.... Have we evolved since the first story located about us continuing the "human" condition?

See? What kind of friend does Tiger has, who immediately
disclose their conversation about the Kobe Special? Maybe
that is a made up story, because if that happened, then
Tiger would then be implicitly recognizing that he had
cheated and that the Kobe Special ($$$$ giant ring) would make up
with the mother of his children, which apparently worked
for Kobe Bryant after his problem.

He had been very off the news scandal headlights, and if such was
the case that it happened, that changes his image as an idol
for many people. Great golf player, but if all this is true,
his trophies have some dents on them.

Obviously Tiger is a better putter than a driver. No matter what, she is the mother of his children. Right now they are
in big time meeting with their legal counselors / attourneys,
to discuss the most convenient story for the media, but
the longer they take, the more the media will come up
with stories and gossip.

On her side, if you just had two of his children, then it is
reasonable that she would be upset. She is entitled to
a mulligan.

Here's the latest story:

Finally, that Nike adjustable driver sprayed the Nike-One
Black Escalade into an out-of-bounds hook, past the hydrant and into an unplayable penalty shot at the neighbor's tree.

According to PGA rules officials, he has to play it from there, or take a club drop lenght with a penalty shot before his next shot. His attourneys are helping them decide on the next move.
Six minutes pause for unconsciously making a decision = additional penalty for slow play. Damage to the tree and
hydrant - $6,000 dlls. penalty"

Probably his driver it got misaligned after Tiger threw it at the crowd on his last tournament, which proves he was already having anger management issues.

HA! HA! HA! The TIGER never realized he had a LIONESS in the house !!! He probably thought: "I'M TOO BIG SHOT", my "little wife" won't DARE 2 do anything against me" ! (I bet he got that mistress when the wife was pregnant, coz the 2nd kid is only 10 months old !). By the way, the mistress got this "BITCHY" kind of looks !

Elin should hold out for more than the 80M over seven years. That's less than one year income for tiger. She should demand 10% to be even civil to him. Plus an annual bonus if she smiles in public. She's young, beautiful and has her entire life ahead of her. He will never change, he HAS been true to his own values. That's the point,he was true to himself and no one else. He will continue this his entire life. You can't change someones character, they are what they are and tiger is self centered and arrogant. Elin, don't let this cad change you, take him for all you can and make a new life for yourself and the children. Play his game better than he plays golf.

Stunning - a super model for a wife, 2 babies, millions if not billions and yet he needs to screw around. Change your name to Cheetah!!

What a lack of character. Your late dad and mom must be soooo proud.
Another example of - it's all about me.

I'm an advocate, who has heard stories like Tiger's. Phil Hartman, Chuck Finlay, Geno Hayes, and Abraham Lincoln are just a few famous men, who were the victims of domestic abuse. Call us. We're here to help.

Domestic abuse is not about gender, size, or strength.

I'm glad she beat the crap out of him.

If she would have traveled with him then he would have had no chance to do anything. Private jet, penthouse to stay in, nanny for the kids!

Then she wants to scream "Oh Poor Me". NOT buying it. Guess she was to busy getting her nails done at a more than expensive salon and shopping while he was out making the money.

If you don't take care of your man then someone else will gladly do it for you. Besides she isn't that cute to me anyway.
