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.

I hate to break it to the ladies on the board, but where I live (Hollyweird) most men cheat at least once in their marriage.
She should be arrested.

Phil Mickelson would have never gotten into a mess like this. I hope Phil takes the number one spot now and we hear less about Tiger. Pain pills? Did he run out of Thunderbird or what?

44/Kels: You are a f'cking racist! You can suck my big one.

By the way, Elin is not "bleached". She is a natural blonde. Fortunantely we still have those here in northern Europe.

This story about Tiger's wife inflicting his injuries seems quite authentic to me. Any wife truly in love with her husband would've gone "ballistic" if she heard that her husband is having an affair and Elin is no exception. Obviously, I don't live with the woman and therefore will never know what she is really like at home. But personally speaking as an outsider I think that Elin is the real deal. And as one poster wisely said, Tiger should do what it takes to save his marriage because the grass is not always greener on the other side.

The wife should be charged with assault with a weapon. Send her to jail to cool off for a while.

1. This is one pissed off lady.
2. Cops can't arrest anyone unless Tiger presses charges.
3. They live in a private enclave. Cops might not have any authority in there.

By the way; No need for all the racist BS. If he was white and she was black, all the guys in here would be grinnin' and pointin' and saying 'lucky bastard'.

That's pretty close to how I saw it, thanks for putting the pieces together. Amazing that word is out that after the 911 call was made TWO min. later police show up.. WOW !! That's a record!

seems that everyone here is assuming that Woods cheated

we all know he was raised better than that and he had a great example from his parents marriage

would like to think he would not dishonor his name or his vows

wondering if he was unfaithful or if his wife got carried away with fear/jealousy/suspicion/over-active imagination fueled by friends/family?

not sure if we'll ever know the real truth

not sure if it's even really any of our business
