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.

O.k. so Tiger's a CHEETAH. Yes he was wrong for committing adultery AND should keep his pants zipped, get counseling, go to church, and be a committed husband and father to his wife and kids....NONE of his actions change the fact that he's a great golfer though.....

Rember some facts    

I like her style too.... you go Elin. You play, you pay....

I would do damage to if someone preteneded they loved me and put my health in danger like that.. what a pig! There are so many diseases to be caught from uclers, to oral thrush, to downright aids! I say he put her life in danger first, so a golf club is lucky if you ask me! SOB

Medical legal issues    

MSNBC is now reporting Woods ended up in the intensive care unit after being nearly beaten to death by Elin:

"When Tiger Woods was brought to the Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Fla., his condition was more serious than previously reported. According to a person with knowledge of Woods’ hospital admission, the star golfer had to be admitted directly to the hospital’s intensive care unit, where he was immediately intubated and his breathing stabilized."

Do any of you get it? He was put on life support after this beating.

He was "snoring" at the scene because his windpipe or trachea was damaged, not because of drug or alcohol intoxication.

Does someone who committed adultery deserve to be beaten so badly they are in an intensive care unit? He was also prematurely discharged to home to protect "the families privacy".

The next day, the batterer, Ms. Woods, says that victim of neurotrauma is "asleep".

Elin Woods deserves to be convicted of domestic violence. Not protected. Domestic violence is a crime, not an SNL skit.

im with you...i think that at that age, women should be able to demonstrate their anger without wielding golf clubs...but here certain women are so used to having their way and feel that threatening, assaulting and physical violence are perfectly appropriate...

too bad it didnt happen in italy...

both elin and kitty kat are clowns for airing their dirty laundry, but violence elevates the whole thing to another level...

So this is what happens when a professional golfer puts his putter in the wrong bag.

Sweden    

Go Elin! No Swedish women accept unfaitful men. I think our mentallity is a bit different from other countries. Swedish women are very independent and if they are treated bad, we leave. We do not concentrate our life around our husband. Heja Elin, ta inte skit du är värd så mycket mer. I think Elin should move home to Stockholm again with her children and leave Tiger behind, then he can do what ever he wants.

Sweden    

Haha I need to laugh at the remarks of "Elin marrying Tiger for the money" well I am from Sweden and I went to school with her sister and well they got plenty of money before...and they went to private schools in Sweden so I think you should drop that. Swedish women compared to US one's are very seldome golddiggers! It is not our mentality since in Sweden we are brought up with "you should not have more than others" to have money is not anything you say it is something you hide....

Concerning the beating...do we even know what happen? Do we know if he did anything to her? Is not sleeping around and possibly getting HIV and other deseases abuse? I think so!

I don't have any sympathy for elin woods because she was a nanny when he met her and she struck gold when tiger woods married her. she didn't even want him and he was a fool for chasing behind her and begging her to marry him. Elin Woods never loved tiger, she just saw him as her fame to fortune. This was a business deal for her then she hurried up and had a couple of kids to sweeten the pot. Now she claimes to be so hurt by his cheating ways. She knew he was a cheater before she married him but she married him anyway, all that money was too enticing to turn down. So what do elin and her lawyer's do right after this story hit the fan? She quickly asks her lawyer to get her more money. She is a golddigger, the only difference between her and these other women is that tiger woods chose to marry her. She is just a common high priced hooker and if she did hit him then she should have went to jail.

This is just another example of what can happen to those who have loads of money and a mindset that is not where it should be. I feel for Elin and what she has yet to go through. We all reap what we sow. Tiger will get his. What he really needs is the Lord!!

Oh geeze you people are so quick to say the women are ho's. I'm so sick & tired of the double standard. If they are ho's then what does that make him? He's the biggest ho of them.

If I were his wife I would go straight to a PUBLIC CLINIC & GET CHECKED FOR THE CROTCH CRICKETS & THEN I WOULD HEAD STRAIGHT FOR BANK & TAKE HIM FOR EVERYTHING THAT HE IS WORTH BEFORE HE'S WORTH NOTHING FINANCIALLY. HE'S ALREADY USELESS BUT HE STILL HAS THE MONEY. GO ELIN GO!!!!

Tiger telling the truth?

Directly after crash he wanted to avoid tests for alcohol and drugs. What better way than to blame his wife for the accident?

The story he posted later fits the evidence much better!
What evidence? Copies of reports found on the net.

A) Both rear passenger windows were smashed with glass on the ground at the crash site.
B) There was a golf cart at the scene (likely to carry golf clubs?)
C) Front passenger door was mechanically stuck
D) Engine was running
E) Tigers driving resembles drunk driving hitting several objects (4), and was not a quick route to get away...
F) Elin called for help

This is what I think happened
1) For some reason Tiger left in the night
2) Elin saw/heard the crashes including the final.
3) Elin "chased after" using a golf cart (or running finding neigbours golf cart)
4) Doors was not possible to open (engine running, personal safety feature)
5) Elin know that they could be opened from inside.
6) She took a golf club and smashed a rear window, but the door could not be opened (passenger side)
7) Smashed the other rear window, reached in and opened the door and then the front driver door.
8) Helped Tiger out through that door - quite possible even with him unconscious.
9) Why not call 911 herself? Was she dressed? Or did she bring the house phone (out of reach?)

I think it is quite daring of TMZ to keep their original story...
