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 is what Tiger will probably tell the FHP. I was taking my canary to the hospital. It got loose in the car and flew out the window. The next thing I saw was his rear end, and there was a crash."

A man is knocked unconscious for six minutes. There are hints of a false police report. Two key witnesses refuse to talk to the police. What am I missing here?

OJ never would have never put up with this crap.

Wise athletes like Tony Romo are smart to bail at the right time.

This is a personal matter. Between husband and wife. Why doesn't everyone leave them alone and let THEM work it out in PRIVATE. Get a @#$%^&* LIFE!

Does anyone have PROOF that his injuries were caused by his wife? No police reports says this and they are in Florida where the accident took place... How do you have this information? As a married woman I am appauled to hear such nonsense especially with NO PROOF!!!!

This is all a big brew up by the liberal media. They want to create President Obama as the biggest celebrity and they want to destroy Tiger Woods to do it.

They made up all kinds of stuff to make it look like Rush Limbaugh abused prescription drugs and now they are making it look like Tiger abuses alcohol so that President Obama looks good by comparison. They can't tolerate any other positive role model to distract from their sacred Obama.

Okay... that whole thing was a kinda joke... Just makin it up as I go along...

'Cause I dug my key into the side
Of his pretty little souped-up 4 wheel drive
Carved my name into his leather seat
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights
Slashed a hole in all 4 tires
Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats
Oh, maybe next time he'll think before he cheats
Oh, before he cheats

This story is total made up garbage. There is no proof or evidence of any of it. I hope Tiger and the alleged other woman sues the crap out of TMZ to the point that they are forced to shut down.

Dump her, hot blondes are a dime a dozen anyway and who needs some crazy nut-job going off on you in the middle of the night? Just give her the cash she wants and go make some more, meanwhile he can nail every hot POA he sees without having to sweat over his stupid wife. She really blew it there, sure she'll clean up but she could have ended up with way more if she only knew her place and kept her trap shut.

Elin being ultra beautiful, would have been brought up as a special child and young adult.

Tiger being a child golf prodigy, would also have been brought up as a special child and young adult.

I would think they are both immature narcissists and this we can expect unusual behavior from such a combo.
