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.

To all the Chris Brown haters (not that you are wrong)

The scratch on the face is misdemeanor assault and battery; chasing him as he fled causing an accident requiring hospitalization pushes it up to a felony; smashing the car with the golf club is another violent misdemeanor. It doesn't matter how hot she is, or how well she performs in the sack - he needs to get away from her and keep her away from him. Tiger needs to get a protective order, not to have her in the house keeping the cops away.

Oh please stop with the domestic violence comparisons. Men regularly get light sentences for killing their sig others for cheating under the "crime of passion" laws so why not the same for her?

I once had a neighbor who cheated on his girlfriend. She caught him in the act in a bar, put a couple of nice tiger-like scratches on his arm, then, later that night after he was home, she blew out all of the windows of his car with a golf club. Scared the crap out of him and taught him a lesson at the same time. Yes, I think the golf-club to car thing is therapuetic. Apparently the scratching is also.

Why would they cops leave without demanding to see him first? For all they know he is dead in that house. She doesn't seem stable.

SOME of the people here are right. If this had been the other way around, Tiger Woods would be in jail right now. I know that some are saying not to compare this with the C. Brown thing, but domestic violence, is domestic violence. I can't believe that there are people cheering on the wife. Is this whole cheating thing even true? Does she HAVE PROOF, or is she just going by what the friggin National Enquire is saying? Seriously? No wonder people these days are so backwards. When men hit women, they GO TO JAIL. When women hit men, FOR WHATEVER REASON, they get a medal? NOT RIGHT. She should be charged and arrested and face the same punishment as anyone else that commits domestic violence and assult with a deadly weapon!

Congratulations to TMZ to being the only news outlet to report the whole story. Fox Sports has an article this morning, with no mention of the couple having an argument, and furthermore (unlike most articles they post), will not allow a blog to follow the article. Perhaps they're worried Tiger will be upset to read the news and not see what others have to say about it? Well done, TMZ.

Only marry foreign women    

These are some of the common facts about domestic violence:

* According to the FBI, a man is beaten every 15 seconds
* 4,000 men each year are killed by their wives, ex-wives, or girlfriends
* There are nearly 100 times as many animal shelters in the United states as there are shelters for men
