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 knew it!!! Thinking how I would react to a cheating husband, and having all those golf clubs within reach, I would have beat the daylights out of him, too. You GO, Elin!!! Take him for everything he's got. And take his kids away, too. He can find comfort in the arms of one of his many "lady friends".

Where is the domestic voilence claim. This such double standard. She hit Tiger, Rhianna hit Chris, Chris hit her back and yet you hear the whole drama. I bet if tiger was married to one of us law enforcement would get a search warrant and arrest us for abuse. Tiger my heart goest out to you but it serves you well.

I am sure next time you will pick someone who truly loves you and not for your money. They all want you just because you are famous. Don't be fooled.

Go enjoy your life, take care of your kids, give her the millions and do what you do best, play golf. Listen to Donald Trump.

He's such a loser--she's much too smart for him and evidence will prove it when she takes everything he has and the plate he's eating on with it. I LOVE HER for smashing in his windows...next time go for his nuts...

The source for this story is someone that has spoken to Tiger Woods.
Can we believe Tiger? Can we believe the source?

"Woods says his wife followed behind with a golf club. As Tiger drove away, she struck the vehicle several times with the club."

The windows were smashed after crash... - "As Tiger drove away"

Check the images here on TMZ or police images. I see no other damage on the side or back of car than the broken rear passenger windows. One would expect to see some damage on the passanger side from bushes and hedge but I can't even see that. And there is definitely no damage from several strucks with a golf club - that would leave some marks - "she struck the vehicle several times with the club."


This source is NOT reliable!

Its in the nature of a black man to satify the women, no matter if they are white, blue, or green, we will di.k them when needed. Elin happen to find a good one with the rod and the money. Hell our rod is all they want anyway and if you have money to go with it then better. Tiger finally awaked and started doing what God wanted the black man to do, thats was to Lay the Pipe. Our pipe is a gift of God and he want us to use it in a wide way...go tiger, you has finally came home uncle tom...

Why isn't law enforcement arresting Cheetah Woods wife for domestic violence and taking the children away from these 2 parents who cannot get along?

Elin must be held accountable for her actions!!! DOMESTIC VIOLENCE is never justified....even by a woman scorned!!!!

If it were the other way around and Tiger had discovered that she had been unfaithful and took a 9-iron to HER FACE, he would be in jail right now!!!

from a contact who played cards at the clubhouse that fateful T-day nite- Tiger was texting all day, then went to play cards at the clubhouse. he forgot his cellphone, and forgot to erase the last text msg. Elin read it- (may also have received other texts?).

when tiger returned, she confronted him. she didn't like the BS lies, and picked up the club. She tore up the house (which is why the moving vans were there- removing the damaged goods). She didn't follow tiger out of the house. Tiger disregarded her anger, and, apparently, with the sleeping pills (and drinking?), he was pretty much oblivious to her. She smacked him. He wasn't driving away- he was in in his underwear and barefoot. He was RUNNING AWAY!

He's not been seen since then why? Not to avoid PR. Hes getting facial and orthodontal reconstruction in Arizona.

Tiger got SMACKED! Good for her, the women he played with are tramps. Can you imagine how many STDs he's exposed her to?

ELIN NORDEGREN is a domestic violence abuser, clearly and unequivocally. Are there two Elins? A public one versus the private one? Did that private Elin contribute to Tiger's wandering eyes and ultimate violation of his vows? Or was it merely the DOG in the man?
My basic and civil premise is that domestic violence, whether perpetrated by male or female is what it "tis," pure and simple. But you don't hear any of the hypocrits from the left or right, women organizations, politicians, preachers, TV commentators, radio talk show hosts nor civil rights leaders condemning Elin's violent behavior, predatory and despicable actions. No! Instead the righteous-know-it-all third party observers from afar are verbally attacking Tiger for his martial infidelity, and letting Elin off the hook for her brutal,inexcusable and uncontrollable temper. Where are the domestic violence opponents?

Elin should be be charged with criminal assault by the appropriate district/state's attorney, tried, convicted and incarcerated for as long as the law will allow. This prosecution should go forward irregardless of whether Tiger files charges or not, or even if he vehemently disagrees.

Further and foremost, what kind of message does Elin's behavior send to the young people-both boys and girls-of the world? Clearly: "When you get angry with your significant other or have a score to settle, you merely resort to violence. Do an Elin on her or on him." I think not!

As far as I'm concerned, Tiger got off lightly (when it comes to Elin's attack on him) - I would have DECAPITATED the dirty rotten lousy creep! Some excuse for a man HE is! I'd be sooooo ashamed of being his wife...



Why is it that some high-profile people think they're exempt from being examples of decent, moral, caring, spouses and parents? Is it because they have lots of money and fame, and are so full of their precious selves? Do they think that they're so 'powerful' that they lose all sense of humility? I think SO. I don't believe Tigers behaviour can be swept under the carpet, with a convenient 'I'm just a troubled sex addict' label attached, so as to 'still the waters'.



Tiger Woods was the top golfer once, but he shot himself in the foot....BOTH feet, actually, by being a sneaky liar. It looks like he's losing his wife and kids, and his game seems to be losing it's edge (Augusta - a less than STELLAR come-back). I guess he'll just have to take his billions (and his whores - sorry, he's a 'sex addict', isn't he?), and trundle off, with his Tiger tail tugged firmly between his legs. He should try to find some REAL humility (not conjured up 'Nike' add spins). .....Go Elin!
