Tiger Woods Injuries

Caused by Wife,

Not SUV

11/28/2009 10:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tiger Woods did not suffer facial lacerations from a car accident. They were inflicted by his wife, Elin Nordegren -- according to a conversation Woods had Friday after the accident.

Tiger Woods
Tiger has yet to be formally interviewed by the Florida Highway Patrol -- that should happen this afternoon. But we're told Tiger had a conversation Friday -- with a non-law enforcement type -- detailing what went down before his Escalade hit a fire hydrant. 

We're told he said his wife had confronted him about reports that he was seeing another woman. The argument got heated and, according to our source, she scratched his face up. We're told it was then Woods beat a hasty retreat for his SUV -- but according to our source, Woods says his wife followed behind with a golf club. As Tiger drove away, she struck the vehicle several times with the club.

Tiger WoodsWe're told Woods became "distracted," thought the vehicle was stopped, and looked to see what had happened. At that point the SUV hit the fire hydrant and then hit a tree.

We're also told Woods had said during the conversation Friday he had been taking prescription pain medication for an injury, which could explain why he seemed somewhat out of it at the scene.

Go, Elin Woods, go!

If he's playing Hide the Salami elsewhere, let him have it.

Nah, if he's a playa, he's a play and he can't change.

At least she wasn't just a baby mama. She'll get some nice ka-ching out of this one.

Surprise - NOT    

Can't say anyone is surprised. All of Tiger's g/fs look exactly the same - this one got lucky and they married. Hardly a surprise when things don't work out. Too back for Tiger though. He was such a role model and inspired a lot of people.

Tiger running over a hydrant = boring. Tiger's wife being a crazy bitch scratching him and running after him with a golf club = now THAT's a story.

Haha... i think it's a common thing to have your car smashed with a golf club when you cheat on a woman. that happened to my husband's friend. His wife took a club to his car too. they're still together. it's probably like therapy.

Serves him right..rolling around with an old wh0re (with loose lips..in more ways than one) when he has a beautiful wife at home raising his two kids? Shame on you Tiger and I'm glad Elin is good with a golf club too

This story is all kinds of crazy. I read about the supposed affair on another gossip site this morning and then heard he was in an accident. Didn't put the two together until now. The other site had a video of the chick going to Tiger's hotel in Australia and then caught her leaving a few hours later. She said she was there 'on business'. I'll see if I can find the post.

Good thing it wasn't me    

Amazes me that everyone is so quick to assume that he was having an affair (maybe, maybe not) and no one is mentioning the obvious. If a man had scratched up a woman's face and busted her car windows out, he would be UNDER the jail as soon as the police got involved. If what is being reported is actually what happened, the the wife is the one who is showing an obvious lack of control and anger issues... Did she go to jail for it?

Team Elin all the way. She's just showing him what happens when he gets out of line. She knows how to use a driver! Let's hope they can patch up this marriage. He has a georgeous wife and two beautiful children who need they're dad. Tiger be prepared to grovel. Make that marriage work, You've got a great wife and mother of your kids. Don't blow it.
