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 am cracking up because I saw the story on his affair yesterday, and the crash today. When I read that his wife heard the crash, and ran out with a golf club, I thought perhaps she had really chased him out of the house with it. I was right!!

Violence is wrong. if she thinks he is cheating on her why not file for divorce rather than nearly costing him his life. All these people here supporting violence would have disagreed if it was Tiger beating up his wife for any reason. The press is still criticizing Chris Brown and he deserves what he is getting but let the press use the same measure on Tiger wife. She should have filed for Divorce rather than attack him based on a tabloid story.

Which sounds better coming from a guy when asked "how'd you get the scratches"? My wife/girlfriend beat me up. or I got into a car accident.

Take the money and run, Elin. Tiger Woods is a major disappointment.

He's lucky she only bent the shaft of his club. She was only showing him how to get a "ho in one."

She hasn't been charged with anything because the police don't (as of yet) have an account which details what actually happened. They have not spoken to Tiger Woods. If this account is true (and corroborated by Tiger Woods and/or other sources), she probably will be charged with domestic violence. While I don't blame her for being pissed off (the man is obviously a man whore), busting up his face and SUV was not a wise decision.

Wow C. Brown goes crazy and beats Rihanna and everyone says he should be thrown under the jail but Elin beats Tiger and everyone says "go Elin" funny how that works. It's wrong no matter if it's a man beating a woman or a woman beating a man and as in the C. Brown comments made on here Black or white don't matter either.

The institution of marriage is a sham because the majority of men think with their 2-6". TWO being operative here. Life is NOT greener on the other side. She needs anger management AFTER she files for divorce. Hee's another example of power and money destroying lives.

You have to hand it to Tiger....at least for his honesty after the fact. The rest is between a married couple. Good for him to step out in front of this and tell it like it is.

Prolonged use of pain meds and wives do not mix well!

Good for you TMZ for printing this and not sitting on it,
People figured it out anyway on their own so it's not like enbaling or covering would make it go away.
If he has a problem with medication's, a wife or both maybe now he will deal with it before it's to late.

Why do you asume she is in the right? It takes two for your marriage to get to the point someone is having an affair? If that had been HIM hitting the car or even a hint of it to the police much less her having a mark on her, his ass would have been in jail so fast.... I am a wife and a mother and I think she should be held just as accountable and any man would have been. Is she not from Europe? Are they not used to and ok with this type of stuff anyway? I am just asking....

Of course Tiger is going to tell the truth. He needs to get rid of that crazy b*tch ASAP. In a couple of years he'll be able to dump his spawn in a boarding school in Switzerland.
