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.

Good for her, if that was my husband his suv would have been the least of his worries, I wouldn't have missed. He's a dirt bag and his girlfriend is a ho pig, but no tears Mrs. Woods, laugh all the way to the bank :)

So according to the logic of a lot of people here, if a woman cheats on here husband he has the right to beat her because cheating is wrong. Got it.

Well, well, well, All is not right at the Wood's home. This is going to be a messy divorce - millions and millions of dollars at stake. Tiger is going to have a tough time concertrating on golf with all of this going on.

Somebody , shoot it! Quick!    

Differenthow the policehandlles therichand famous.

THE Police ARE ON A WITCH HUNT.

This is really unfair.

There is no story for the police to investigate.

Investigate what?

Shouldn't they be pulling over DUI's people driving on thefreeway?How about solcinga murder. These police of thistonw,Windermere,mustreally have nothing to do.

Tiger's camp of lawyers,pr,will stop this.

I can't even watch GOLF unless TIGER is playing! He makes golf FUN! He has a BILLION DOLLARS! What is he supposed to due sit at home and watch SPONGE BOB? If you had a BILLION DOLLARS It would change your view of what is fun.Give TIGER a break, let him enjoy what he has earned so he should do what ever he wants with his life. He has earned the $$ not Elin. GO TIGER, PLAY GOLF AND LIVE YOUR LIVE HOWEVER YOU LIKE.

Like the rest of us Tiger Woods is mortal and has the same problems as a lot of other people. In this case it is just the little head overruling the big head and he was not discrete in his pursuit of strange stuff. I just wonder what driver his wife used on him when she beat the crap out of him. lmao

I have a problem with the statement that " she had scratched up his face " - she had a golf club.... I don't think Tiger would have been running for his life for fear of being scratched - on the other hand if he had been hit in the face with a golf club ( remember he had deep lacerations, a mouth full of blood and was incoherent while drifting in and out of consiousness for over ten minutes ) these injuries are consistent with blunt force trauma - NOT being scratched by a woman .....you can easily KILL someone with a golf club - if I was Tiger I would have 2 choices in that situation - fight back (and face the consequences of beating up a woman and the media and racial spin that would have exploded...) or get the heck away from her .... he did the right thing .

Does anyone remember the memorial at Pebble Beach for Payne Stewart? As all the golfers were teeing off in special remembrance of Stewart...Tiger was practicing on the back 9. He is totally into himself.

It was 1 of three things:
1 drugs or alcohol and the police were quick to say it wasn't
2 Ambien and a bad case of sleep walking (very far fetched)
3 cheating ways discovered

She has way more balls than Hillary!! In many ways!
Seriously, this is a somewhat normal reaction to the situation. Staying by your man isn't normal at all.

Tiger, you may have just set a new record for divorce settlements...
