Tiger Woods

Admitted to Hospital as OD

12/8/2009 2:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

HospitalTiger Woods was admitted to Health Central Hospital the day after Thanksgiving as an overdose.

Sources connected with the hospital tell TMZ the admissions chart lists "OD" and that he was having trouble breathing.

We're told the fifth floor of the hospital was put on lockdown when Tiger arrived. Tiger was admitted under an alias -- William Smith. His wife, Elin Nordegren was by his side.

As we first reported, Elin gave paramedics two pill bottles at the accident scene -- we now know the prescriptions were for Ambien and Vicodin. Tiger was in and out of consciousness, snoring at the scene, and our sources say he clearly appeared to be under the influence of something -- not alcohol.

We're also told doctors used a breathing tube to assist his respiration.

We're also told hospital officials changed Tiger's alias after a few hours to another alias because they feared people would find out he was there.

THE Golfer    

Definitely a troubled man. How long he has been wrestling with his demons, who knows? One thing this whole debacle has proven. Neither immense wealth, nor fame, nor unsurpassed talent can protect an individual from himself. I'm starting to feel sorry for the guy, although nowhere close to the degree of sympathy I have for his wife and kids.

New theory.. Tiger is gay.. they were afraid it would come out in the press, so they created all of these fictitious hoes to come out and say they had sex with him.. Honestly, as a straight man, if I was married to that hot piece of ass, I wouldn't be sleeping around those other ones.. which brings me to a new point.. why the pre-nup that pays her more money the longer she stays with him.. Who would ever design such a pre-nup, unless you "bought" your wife, for your image.. Hmmm Tiger was rising quite fast, and if anything ever came out in the press that he was gay.. it would surely affect the whole game of golf... No more good 'ol boy sport anymore, I tell you. WHY did Tiger buy his wife? and is this the way they go their own ways; a sort of mutual decision to go off there separate ways with a bang, and everyone believing Tiger is this man with a lust for women... HE doesn't, never has struck me a being straight.

Why would these women speak if they were bribed not to..? Why would at least one of them speak to the tabloids? Why would the one who was paid $1 mil to keep quiet, also happen to be a New York Night Club Promoter? Well.. The "mistress" who was a night club promoter was paid a million to hire these other women to come out and say they had sex with Tiger, and this is why the one woman accepted the 20k for the interview.. This also explains why the women are all sort of sleazy, trashy types- not the type a person such as Tiger would go for - But hey.. when your gay, do you even care to trouble yourself with such minor details. He was just concerned with his image, being that this catalyst of a car crash was going to "release" his wife from her Tiger duties. The ambien..why the ambien? It allowed him to get through the awful horror of having to have sex with a woman.. IT'S ALL A SHAM.. Tiger's gay, and it's the only reason everything fits falls into place.

First, Tiger Woods is HUMAN. As someone who has been a part of the PGA in the past, this should not represent the PGA of America in a negative light. People that have "complicated" grief do unrational things such as this. I only hope for the sake of his wife and his children that they can begin to put the pieces of the puzzle back together and "start over." This is a huge undertaking as "trust" is the main factor here on her part. Tiger went on the "prowl" but should have known the warning signs also, his enablers need to be fired.
