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.

This just re-affirms my first thought when he got married: This was going to be another OJ Simpson deal. Except this one is 180 degrees out of phase.

Tiger Woods is one of, if not the, most upstanding, outstanding and classiest athletes this country has ever had. LEAVE HIM AND HIS FAMILY ALONE.

They're a married couple with children, not our entertainment, and they deserve some privacy to fix their marriage if that's what they want . . . without the shallow (even if well meaning) advice of the public, friends, or family who cannot possibly know the entire story nor feel their emotions nor share their history together.

Obliviously his wife attacked him, hit him in the head with a golf club giving him a concussion, and he tried to escape. But before he could he lost consciousness and crashed the vehicle.

He's not saying anything because his wife will be charged with assault and thrown in jail.

I love reading all of the comments from women thinking it's great that Tiger was attacked for cheating.. Question to your girls out there - would you feel the same if it were the other way around? Would you think it was great if a man attacked a women for cheating?

Where was his bodyguard when he need him? Tiger looks to be in shape but evidently he is no match for Mrs Woods. If they do divorce over his wondering eye I think she has a future in MMA.

Never hit a man if you think he cheated on you; go shopping and threaten the bill will be larger next time! Come on if your spouse that you love is accused of cheating on you; please do not act like you would not go off the deep end.I think Tiger is being set up though all these cheating rumor; Tiger seems to be level headed guy and loves his family. But you know I do not know the dude; so just my 2 cents he has been low on bad boy radar!

The saddest part of all of this is the amount of attention paid to this event. I think that there are a few more issues that people need to be concerned with as opposed to this ridiculous celebrity worship. The majority of people cannot even name their Senator or Congressman but they can quote everything written in People magazine or reported on E! tonight. This country is in so much trouble.
