Tiger Woods Injuries

Caused by Wife,


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.

ok people if have ever driven an SUV you know it sits high and hitting a fire hydrant is very easy when you are backing out of a driveway with a SUV; once you've hit the hydrant you are upset and try getting off it but you put the car in drive and stepping on the gas heading head on into a tree , well with this SUV the doors auto lock and you just a hit tree at a rate of speed which will set off the airbags, if you have ever been hit in the face with one these things, you'd rather been hit by Mike Tyson, so you are locked in the car and have been sucker punched by an airbag ....that will be the story and it works!! Sorry TMZ you've got it worry

TMZ has balls to report the truth about violence against men. The mainstream press is afraid of feminists (man bad, woman good) groups.

I am concerned that Tiger was "sleeping". Doesn't anyone remember Natasha Richardson who died after apparently appearing lucid for a period of time after her skiing accident? For all we know, the victim of domestic violence here could be in a coma with delayed onset of neurologic damage (such as a subdural hematoma).

Law enforcement has been derelict in their duty to protect this victim of domestic violence. The victim should be in protective custody and should be removed from the home, particularly if he is hard to rouse after being incoherent. This is grossly irresponsible.

Furthermore, why is the scene not being treated as a crime scene as it should be in an instance of domestic violence? Why is the victim not being offered counseling?

There is no justification for domestic violence. Period.

In medicine, we know that VIPs often get the worst care. This happening here.

A man is ALLEGEDLY injured by his wife, and women are cheering, but if HE had injured HER ..... "WHAT AN EVIL MAN!!! >:-(" ... "HE SHOULD BE LOCKED UP!!!!" ... double-standard BS!

As usual, it's ok for a woman to injure a man, but never the other way around! Feminism has twisted the minds of women, to the point where they hate men, and enjoy the suffering of males.

And your little dog too...    

I can understand her anger, but this is not the movies. If you assault someone with golf clubs you run a really good chance of killing them. Was she thinking about her kids at all??

His crash could have been so much worse and she could have spent this morning in jail. Leave him to his own devices... and get a good lawyer.

I killed my husband with a shotgun blast to his back while he was asleep. The judge found me guilty, because I was. I was sentenced to a few days in a mental place . Later a family judge gave me my kids back to me.

Hope you had a pre-nup, Tiger. Bet you wished you married a Caublanasian right about now, huh?

In response to WTF: "White woman gone mad. A sista would have never done you that way."

I guess you're too young to remember when Lionel Richie's wife beat him up for doing the same thing.

Incarceration Nation. About 95% of prisoners are men. Judges do not throw women in jail. Period.


America now leads the world in the number of people behind bars - about 5% of world's population, about 25% of the world's prisoners

This is why multi-millionaires shouldn't marry nannies.

Will she be charged with a hate crime for kicking his "Cablinasian" ass? I expect to hear from the Thai, Chinese, and other anti-defamation leagues...

Being the wife of any athlete has it's agvantages. They have access to certain types of "weapons." (i.e) Golf,golfclubs. Baseball,bats and hard-ass balls. Tennis,rackets. Hockey,sticks (and pucks).Football,well you could take out an eye with one of those suckers if you had a good throwing arm. Same with a basket ball,but you would be more likely just to knock a man out. The ironic thing here is all of these sports are assoicated with,"balls." Isn't that amuseing?

Some incredible posts here. Aren't you the same folks who are still ready to lynch Chris Brown yesterday? Today you say that it's Tiger Woods fault she is physically abusive because he was rumored to be with another woman -- something which none of you can verify. Hypocrisy at it's finest.
