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.

I think I'll believe The New York Times over trash-monger TMZ.

It may be true and it may no. Don't we all owe these people some time to sort through these issues. I don't understand why the ica public needs to be involved in others lives...maybe our lives are not that exciting??

Tiger and his wife were having dinner at a very fine restaurant in Vegas when this absolutely stunning young woman comes over to their table, gives Tiger a big kiss, says she'll see him later and walks away. His wife, Elin, glares at him and says, "Who the hell was that?"
"Oh," replies Tiger,"she's my mistress."
"Well, that's the last straw," says
Elin. "I've had enough, I want a divorce."
"I can understand that," replies Tiger "but remember, if we get a divorce it means that you don't get any more shopping trips to Paris, no more wintering in Barbados, no more summers in Tuscany, no more Ferraris and Lexus's in the garage and no more Florida yacht club.
But the decision is yours."
Just then, a mutual friend enters the restaurant with a gorgeous babe on his arm. "Who's that woman with Mike?" asks Elin.
"That's his mistress," says Tiger.
"Ours is prettier," Elin replies.

Tiger is rich, and famous. But, he is still a person just like the rest of us. He will have problems just like the rest of us. Does the public want to hear what has happened to me in my life? Hell no they don't. Leave the man alone! He will work it out, just like millions of Men before him.

Women need to come to grips and understand that men can never be faithful. The world will then be a much more peaceful place. The old saying "men are only as faithful as their options" is very true, and I think deep down every woman knows that. Women should just be happy that the men married them and not some other crazy woman. Women are still living in some fantasy land if they think they are going to be the "only" one in a Man's life.

The real questions are is how long has Tiger been having affairs and how long has his wife known? At least he didn't get a Bobbit!!!

Some of the commentaries here are appalling:

On the presumption of it being DV, whoever posted, "Go Elin", is condoning domestic violence, no matter what 'cheating' TW has allegedly done, there is no excuse for violence to be committed on him.

Your country is going down the toilet because you people have this attitude that it is OK for a woman to commit violence on a man - they start 70% of the fights - and you allow such women to get away with it, I see a plethora of excuses with words like 'therapy', 'anger management' being used here.

What if you were caught by such a vicious attack by a club weilding woman? Have you had you skull split or ribs broken? Some of you abysmally stupid posters leaving such messages as 'go' don't suffer any of the pain [maybe due to the vacuum between your ears], but I'm sure that if you did you'd be posting in an entirely different way. Your attitude to violence and your excuse for it is at the least bizarre, but it is entirely stupid, that's a certainty.

Grow up!
