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.

First of all, are you all crazy? What kind of man worth his kind of money wouldn't have a prenup? That would be stupidity on his part not to have it there before he got married... No way should any woman part with more than she had before the marriage. Maybe if the women were more like the women of yesterday, but let's get real... women are very aware of the money, and I can bet Elin was VERY AWARE of that when they got married.

I kind of saw this coming weeks ago. Infact, I was thinking about Tiger's wife and thought she does not have a job..all she is, is a housewife. Powerful men like Tiger Woods like women who are independent and do their own thing. She seems to be living off him. I'm not saying that's bad, but if she wants TW to still be looking at her, she has to do her own thing and not just be a stay home housewife and been very dependent.

The information is out thanks to the honesty of TW. You can now return to your pathetic lives. This story no longer requires your attention or comments.

Just another groupie. But she tricked him into marriage. So now she'll get her big payday. No surprise all these women here see her as a role model. This should be a lesson to all men because you'll never have as much money as Tiger, you'll never be as nice as him even on your best day, and he's probably better looking and probably better hung than most. What chance for happiness thru marriage will you have with your own bar fly or church groupie ?

TMZ does not have the full story of what went down. Some Tiger loyalists might be saddened.
