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.

She looks like a victim of plastic surgery designed to make her look like Michael Jizzholm Jacksome. Apparently, Tiger deserved a few whacks for having the surgeon do that to her face, but She didn't hit him enough. In any case, she is a violent predator and should be neutered and kept in a cage. I hope the violent skank, white trash, gold digger spends the rest of her days in a cell to protect any males who she will unfoubtably try to rob in the future.

I'll never understand why people who are worth billions decide to get married and have kids in the first place. Money is power. Women respond to money. You can have whatever female relationship you want with money. I'd be just like Hugh Heffner. Heffner doesn't hide his relationships with other woman. I know i'll get haters when I post this but i'm just being honest ^_^

PS: Should Tiger and his wife get in a divorce that's too bad. And since he had kids with her its a no-brainer he'll have to pay child support and wether or not there's a prenuptual agreement.

Ever heard of giving Tiger the benefit of the doubt? The woman denied having the affair. He is trying to protect his crazy wife from going to jail. The wife needs to be put away where she can't go berserk on anyone again.

NO MORE SLIMY, DOUBLE-LEGAL-STANDARDS for WOMEM!!

She should be arrested immediatedly !! and charged - just like a MAN would... charged with aggravated assault w/ a weapon while commiting DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.

THINK CHRIS BROWN & RIHANNA.

Furthermore, he should dust-off his pre-nupt and divorce her ass post-haste.
Gawd, I don't know why men stupidly continue to marry women under (pretentious, hypocritical monogamy and) the marriage & divorce laws of Western nations - that clearly are unjust toward themselves.

Especially wealthy men who can have all the hottest young bi*^hes - all over the globe - be their baby-mommas that they have time & energy for.

I like how Micheal Jackson handled the land mine a well-to-do man has to walk through in order to have a family w/ children in Western nations:
He hired surrogates under contract to sign-over full rights to the kiddies, in order to get paid.

Thats the smart way to go - or have your children in non-Western societies and keep them and the mother there - because most women in Western nation are so treacherous & bloodsucking when it comes to taking legal advantage of a man that the risk is not worth the reward.
I swear, I would NEVER marry under Western nation's laws if I had big bucks, and I wouldn't miss or regret it either.

A street hustling nobody w/ four baby-mommas and no tracable income has more legal privilege and protection with women than a well-paid responsible man.

Women will never be worthy of adult respect unless they take responsibility for their actions and be held accountable for the same.

Please Quit Picking on Tiger and Family!
All of the strange happenings can be explained. (This may be what Happen) The Family ran out of milk and Tiger needed to go to the local 7-11 store which is the reason he was up so early or late. Perhaps the mat got under the gas pedal and that could be the reason he was going too fast for a driveway or maybe the milk was needed quickly. His wife heard the SUV hit the tree and ran out to help. She could see that when he hit the fireplug and tree that he was knocked into the back seat or trunk storage area. Many know that when you have a front end collision you go back, that is why they put air bags in the front. The doors lock automatically and she could not help him. Some friend may have told Her that a spark plug on a string could break open the rear window. I believe she may have seen an old McGiver program on TV, she removed her shoe lace (an endorced shoe) reached in through the gap in the hood and unscrewed a spark plug with her bare hand. (She is said to be quite strong). Securing the plug and shoelace together she may have able to break the rear window. Some of the glass may have scratched his face, Explaing the scratches and her finger nail could have broken while removing the spark plug. She most likely was then able to remove one of his irons from the bag in the back to clear the small pieces of glass that were in the window frame. While removing the glass she could have struck him accidently several times rendering him silly and thus explains the bloody mouth. She may have then removed Tiger thru the window as the door would not open. The glass up the driveway was on a shoe. When it all was over it could have been tracked to the location by the front door. You skeptics out there will start rumors without hearing the facts.
Now that I have shown how it could have happen Don't discuss this any further.

25. Another black man marrying a trophy blond model wife then he wonders why she is crazy or doesn't have a personality.

Tiger Woods is not a rolemodel, he is a self hating man. Dude, your only popular because you look black, I don't care if your "half cuban"

Dang Tiger looks bad in that photo! Take away that money and hey really does look like any other child of a Phillipino woman and a black man. As a matter of fact, slick back his hair and put a 40 in his hand and he'd look like a "G" in South Central, LA.

Whenever Tiger is in trouble, you can bet that it's with his putter.

Ah, the old "had been taking prescription pain medication for an injury" tale! I wonder, was it one of those "after four hours, consult a doctor" problems?
Tiger may have been somewhat out of it at the accident scene but he was obviously very much into it with his New York squeeze.

ouch; It's a good thing Tiger's Dad has gone on; His mom must be devestated to hear this; now, all the good and charities that are dependent upon his foundation have to jump into the frey and hope this can be salvaged; it's more than just his ass; there will be the grandest rescue mission of all time launched.
Arnie, Jack and all of Golf will participate. The world of Golf pros will come together; even all the jealousies.

Some of the negative comments are uncalled for especially when you don't know what really happened. If you are going to believe anything the tabloids write, you're drinking Kool-Aid. Some of you people need to get a life.

Tiger is smart enough, and rich enough, to not volunteer anything to the popo.
