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.

Yes, only in the diabolical world of the IOC could two idiot blobs of steel ( Wenlock & Mandeville ) be handed the Olympic Mascot gig without a proper background check! The trusty Queens Guard is currently hunting down the two on charges of operating a child porn syndicate.

let us be fair american women married to stars will do anything in the book to get a divorce, so that they reap where they never sow. She lied to the world about the accident talked only about his infidelity. If the American society is just and fair let law takes its cause. For Tiger come to Kenya in East Africa where your President's father comes from and be safe from scrathes and no no 7 iron used to smash cars but to play golf.

This is just nuts. Beating anyone with anything is absolutely crazy. It is not excusable if it was a Woman. And esp. with a golf club?! Like another reader said, if it was tiger that did that, then he would be in jail (what double standard). So is it ok, if a guy's wife cheats, beat her with a golf club(and lsomeone said here, "yeah, that's therapy" -- how stupid. No wonder we're all the way in education ). instead of finding the underlying issue.

Whoops!
Fast-forward to now and she's given what they say is her First Interview.
Wrong.
It's the Only Interview, and she fought tooth and nail in The Settlement for it. She needed to whine that she didn't bash Dubya with a golf club. And for this privileged she let Dubya keep an extra $250 million. Pretty pathetic, huh?

I suggest that we stop publicizing Tiger Wood's past. We just want to see the game of Golf. It is his personal. We have nothing and he has nothing to say anymore. It's his issue not ours. So please, let's just watch them play the great game of golf.
