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.

The so called "women" on here are crazy & ignorant to encourage ANY violent behavior on the notion that a husband is cheating on a wife. In California we now have what is called the "OJ" law, any domestic violence or physical abuse and your ass is in jail, man or woman,ZERO tolerance. I know this from personal experience, my ex wife decide to use me as a punching bag once and then she called 911 for help, simply because I suggested a trial separation.
Police came and saw me bruised and bleeding - her not a mark and took he straight the jail.
Tiger was smart to flee the scene, he can bench press 300 lbs., do you idiotic women on here know what he could to that little Swedish wife of his?? with one swipe of his hand, she is decked- out cold!!
If he is cheating on her that is not right either, but we a have family court system in place and lawyers to deal with matters like that, you don't take a 9 iron and chase after your spouse and try to harm him physically!! Simple formula : two wrongs don't make a right!!Remember that from Kindergarten??
And the race, color of skin, etc. has nothing to do with any of this - why are so many people bringing that arguement in here.
We are all human beings and that has no bearing in any of this.
She and her temper could have killed or mammed him for life!!
This Oprah "you go girl" mentality is not going to work in a civilized society, is that not what were we are??
Bottom line cheating on your wife is not a crime,may not be a moral thing to do-but beating,scratching and chasing moving vehicle hitting it with a golf club with your husband in it is!!
You women out here that think that this was all justified need therapy as much as Tiger's wife and anger management- you are all lost & sick!!
This is a sad day for the Woods, wife lost it and tried to basically kill Tiger or harm him very badly, she needs serious mental help and as for Tiger and his side women(if it is true) that is his and her issue to deal with in a proper manner, there are two children involved here.
That is why the have councelors, shrinks, anger management classes etc., violence only begots more violence.
This is now a domestic and criminal matter, and I am sure Tiger will be truthful and she will probably have to deal with the criminal aspects of her behavior. I am also pretty sure she will never do a minute in jail, Tiger will see to that.
But their relationship will never, ever be the same after this...he can not trust her any longer and apparently she can not trust him either. I wish them the both the best and Thank God that no one was seriously injured.
Another serious lesson in life can be learned here- all the success and money can not bring you happiness, for that you have to look else where!!

What i think    

Tiger! The marriage can be saved. Plead forgiveness and get back on tract. Don't mess up a good marriage. You have everything most people don't have, don't take this for granted! You have it all, right now.

You didn't hear anything out of camp Tiger denying the alleged affair which I would have thought would have been the first thing they would do. When that didn't happen I knew there wouldn't be a good outcome to this and I was correct.

So the damage control begins...Tiger's dad passed away several years, ago... he's had two children within two years...recent health issues, surgeries...blah, blah, blah.
Ohhh, the pressure in being Tiger Woods...eye roll.

No guy gets married planning to cheat. It's always the woman that becomes impossible to get along with - in and out of bed.

I have a different take on the matter, one that Chris Brown could sorely learn from. You got a "HOPPIN" MAD women on your hands. What do you do?


Leave.

Thanx Tiger for the well needed lesson.

People don't want to believe it but there are plenty of high-profile men getting their butts whipped everyday by women - it only becomes a problem when the men hit them back! Now if Tiger (Chris Brown) had hit Elin (Rhi Rhi) back then everyone on here would be screaming how he was so wrong, etc.

However, it appears that instead of hitting her back or defending himself over an argument he tried to leave - yet what did she do - followed him with a golf-club - so even in his effort to NOT hit her she pursued him. It happens everyday - the difference between Tiger (Chris) is 1) Tiger was not afraid to admit that Elin hit him and 2) He did not hit her back.

According to published reports he was under the influence of pain meds and she was throwing golf clubs...

That would make 2 charges for most couples, black or white, young or old, married or not, they both broke the law and should be punished immediately.

Tiger woods cheated. His has every right to go oops-up-side-his-head with a golf club. He should stand there and let her do what she has to do. Maybe then she will forgive him. LOL. At least he is very rich so if she leaves him, she wont be without.

I'm very disappointed in Tiger.

So he goes and breaks his wife's heart and ruins his marriage - over a whore?

This Rachel is a 35 year old party girl who apparently specializes in f*cking married men.

I really thought Tiger was smarter than to betray his wife and two children. How awful.

At least he didn't cut her throat like OJ did his gold-diggin' white trailer trash slut.
