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.

Crazy white bitch. Well, now. It turns out Tiger's the victim in this situation. I wonder if this is the first time this bleached blonde hoe has committed domestic violence. Women go to jail for domestic violence just like men. And for all of you cheering this woman on, were you cheering on Chris Brown too?

Our saturday ladies golf group has already surmised so.

he probably won't be attending his tournament this week do to a nike swoosh logo embedded in his forehead.

i totally respect Tiger and his game so much!!! shame on him if he cheated, but that has yet to be confirmed, so innocent until proven guilt.

Chances are this incident escalated to this point, and it will escalate further if they don't separate and deal with their issues.
I hope now that it's out in the open ( glad you put it out TMZ) they will do so.
Tiger has given much and has much to lose, his story is wonderful incentive for many but he is human and I hope he over comes and conquers what ever it is at the core here as he has everything else in his life.

She called him a svartze & made fun of his little putz before beating the crap out of him. Swedes are vicious sneaks.

I think Elin is completely nuts & totally lost her mind. That golf club is a serious weapon! I don't blame Tiger for leaving!

TEAM ELIN all the way!!!!!!! Poor girl home all alone with two beautiful kids while hubby is out playing a round of golf and cheating with none other than a she/male. That woman is by far suspect of a sex change(Rachel). I'm thinking that maybe someone was right and Tiger swings both ways because Rachel is questionable for being a male or female???
Men think about it before you cheat, that is like death to a woman, can't blame her and I send her fivehighs for it. Screw off if you don't like my comment, I don't care. Golf clubs rocks.
