Tiger Woods Scandal

Key Figure DIES

9/5/2011 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0902_tiger_woods_nowthen_2
Tiger Woods wasn't the only living creature whose life was ruined on that fateful night in November 2009 -- the tree he crashed his Escalade into has been murdered ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the tree tell us ... new neighbors moved in recently and began remodeling -- and one of the first things they did was tear down the infamous oak tree.

The construction company that did the job tells us the tree was in bad shape ever since the crash -- and even though the new neighbors knew full well the tree's place in history, they decided to get rid of it anyway.

And don't think the tree will be showing up on eBay anytime soon -- it was NOT saved, it was simply trashed.

We're told a new tree will be planted soon, but in the meantime ... there's a Porta-Potty in its place.

Symbolic of where Tiger's career has gone, don't you think?

Believe Tiger is just as happy, if not more, to see that tree trashed than anyone else on the block.

I do enjoy the symbolism, Harvey Everything Tiger touches now turns to s**t. Nike has to be the biggest boobs on the planet sticking with Tiger Woods and watching his brand swirl down the porta-potty. The smart companies all jumped ship when the scandal broke. It's great to watch golf now without Tiger whining, throwing his clubs and spitting on the green. There are some amazing players now that have scared Tiger away. Tiger is egotistical worm.

and to think the tree wasn't given a decent burial or at least a cremation to have it's ashes or i should say bark spread over the infamous site. they could have had tour buses come by the site. somebody dropped the ball and should be dealt with the appropiate action immediately.

...

Tiger seems to be doing well it's the tree that got to worst of it. It does seem that Tiger gave every news organization a go to story anytime they ran out of something to talk about.

Has any one heard that Tiger is going to build another home in England?
