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.

Put her in jail. This is such a disgusting double standard. If Tiger was the aggressor, he would already be in jail. Put her in jail. So what if he was/was not having an affair, she could have killed him.

The stories about Rihanna slapping Chris Brown were false. She neither slapped him nor threw a cell phone. Indeed, it was not the first time that he acted violently towards. It was simply the first time he almost killed her while doing so. While it is clear that what Elin did to Tiger was wrong and deserved the appropriate punishment, it does NOT, based on the information we now have, equal what Chris Brown did. I'm pretty sure that if Chris Brown had merely scratched Rihanna, we wouldn't even know that the man is a domestic abuser. He violently shoved and threatened her in the past and no one knew about it.

Poor Tiger. I think his wife was chasing him with a golf club in one hand, n the National Enquirer in the other, Elin attacked Tiger, when Tiger fled for his life into his Cadillac Escalade, when he crashed into the fire hydrant n tree. The National Enquirer has been spot on with its own breaking news...look at that dope, John Edwards n his mistress. I love Tiger, but the girl he was allegedly having an affair? UGH!
The girl Tiger is alleged to have an affair with calls him -'Bear'...aw.

You go whoop his ass Elin!

Wow, TMZ, I'm impressed. Even CNN hasn't updated their news to include this revelation. It is still saying "injured in accident" and wife "uses golf club to free him". Not so much, eh??

Look Tiger has way too much self control & disipline for something like an affair or any of the bogus accusations being reported by this mistress's friend the "informant" There is always two sides to the story. This whore is probably just trying too cop some cash, I mean its married men shes after look at her reputation. Not only that she is ugly. Elin is the mother of his children, as far as the quarrel nobody really knows what happened so quit talking. Yes there both human, and yes they will both go thru things, like anyone else but this right now, this soon, is like trying to accuse a vegitarian of poaching, it just does not make sense i Absolutely adore tiger and always will and im sure that the positive truth will reveal itself.

You guys are really sticking up for Tiger?! WTH..... Hopefully the facts come out and we don't have to speculate FOREVER. Actually, privacy is cool too as long as they don't feed us bull.

justice is served    

I think Tiger's heyday has come and gone. He isn't what he used to be athletically, and he is certainly no longer a role model. His wife needs to take her money and get help for the hell that power and money causes people.

He deserves the treatment. Ellin did the right thing and time for a grown man to own up his family especially when he has a couple of kids. That too on Thanksgiving day. Surely he wanted a rendezvous with the other bitch and not spend time with his family.

Tiger has worked long and hard for his career and reputation. You can bet if he had abused his wife, then he would be charged. This is a double standard however, I pray that can work things out and that the press and busy bodies leave them alone.

I know it's sexist, but everything IS. I don't think what she did is anything near what Chris Brown did. And He shouldn't have been creepin with a ho. But I do think she should just throw him out and not even dignify him with a word, if the allegations are true.
Feel sorry for her and the kids.... He's an idiot becase the GRASS IS NOT GREENER and CHEATING DESTROYS PEOPLE. It destroys the relationship, most of the time, and it destroys your mates self-confidence and you damage them. Why would you do that to someone whom you once loved?????????? Do you think you won't get caught? Lies manifest themselves eventually.

Not to go off topic here, but the link I posted was not meant to be a scam. It was the actual video but when the first guy complained I went back to the site and that post now has a video of Pam Anderson. I reported it as a broken link to the webmaster and it looks like they deleted the post altogether. Nothing happened to my computer though, so I don't know what that other guy was talking about.

Come on, she could have killed him. And a bunch of you are saying he deserved it? First off, we don't even know if he really did cheat on her, the source is the National Enquirer, the dumbest tabloid in history. Second, it doesn't matter what he did, use your common sense and realize what she did almost killed someone. There is no other side, like "well she had a right to?"
