Peyton Manning on Neck Injury: 'I Couldn't Throw the Same Way'

Breaking News

Peyton Manning says he couldn't throw a football the same way after his neck injury a few years back -- but he adjusted his game and found success ... and he's convinced Tiger Woods will do the same. 

The NFL legend played with Tiger at PGA's Memorial Pro-Am in Ohio -- when he was asked if he thought Tiger could return to greatness after back fusion surgery. 

"I can certainly relate," Manning said ... "It's about being flexible, being adaptive."

"I couldn't throw the ball the same way after my injury, but you learn to use your experience and football intellect. That's what he's doing. He's adjusted his game and his swing and using his experience and using other parts of his body to get some strength and power."

"For a golf fan, it's great to see him back out here."

Manning was also REALLY impressed with some of Tiger's shots -- and judging from the video ... you can see why.

EXCLUSIVE

TMZ Sports has obtained the 911 call in the Lucas Glover domestic violence case ... and there are wild allegations being made by both the PGA star and his wife.

Krista Glover initially called 911 on Saturday to report she had been attacked by her mother-in-law at the Florida home they were renting while Lucas was playing in the Players Championship golf tournament.

"I've been attacked by my mother-in-law," Krista told the operator ... "She's locked herself in the room and attacked us."

A short time later, Lucas spoke to the operator and says his wife was LYING. 

"She's trying to blame it on my mother which is not the case at all," Lucas said ... "My wife has gone crazy."

The operator tells Lucas cops are on the way -- but he tries to stop that from happening, "I don't think anybody needs to come out here, thank you though."

Eventually, cops arrived to the home and determined Krista was the aggressor and had gotten physical with Lucas' mother. She was arrested for domestic violence and cops say she continued to rage on police while they were trying to place her in custody. 

Lucas has since issued a statement saying he's trying to work things out with Krista. 

PGA Star Lucas Glover Says Wife Attacked Him ... Over Bad Golf Tourney

Breaking News

PGA star Lucas Glover -- who won the 2009 U.S. Open -- told cops his wife, Krista, attacked him Saturday and called him a "p*ssy" and a "loser" because he played poorly in a golf tournament earlier that day. 

It's all in a police report obtained by TMZ Sports ... which says cops in Jacksonville, Florida were called to a rented house where Glover, his wife and mother were staying. 

According to the report, Lucas' mother had cuts on her arms and blood on her chest when cops arrived ... and said Krista had attacked both her and Lucas. 

When cops made contact with Lucas, he said the fight started after he played a bad round of golf at the Players Championship earlier that day. 

The police report states ... "Lucas advised me every time he plays poorly in a tournament, Krista begins yelling at him, stating he is a 'loser' and 'p*ssy' and ultimately starting an altercation with him about his performance."

Lucas told police Krista had been drinking throughout the day before the fight. 

The golfer also told police, "how he better win or [Krista] and the kids would leave him and he would never see their kids again."

Lucas also said he was tired of all the fights and couldn't take it anymore. 

Krista was eventually arrested for domestic violence -- but cops say she became combative and resisted. 

While she was en route for the jail, she allegedly threatened the arresting officers saying, "This is why cops get shot in the face."

Cops also say Krista kicked the squad car so hard, the door separated from the frame. 

Lucas has since tweeted about the incident, "On May 12, my wife and mother were involved in an argument to which the police were called. Everyone is fine."

"Regrettably, although Krista was charged, we are comfortable that the judicial system is able to address what actually happened and Krista will be cleared in this private matter."

Lucas says the two are "working through" things after the incident. 

Bubba Watson If I Play Golf With Trump Again ... I'm Kicking His Ass

EXCLUSIVE

PGA star Bubba Watson says President Trump will get crushed if they ever play golf again, because Bubba gives NO ONE -- and he means NO ONE -- a free ride on the links, even the Commander-in-Chief.

We got Bubba out in NYC and asked if he ever played with Trump, which he told our guy he did ... way BEFORE Trump moved into the White House.

"2006. I met him on his gold course and played a couple holes with him."

We had to ask Bubba, now that Trump's the top man, do you maybe drop a few holes so the leader of the free world feels good about himself?

"No, I would never let him win. If he beats me he beats me. No not at all, 'cause then I could tell everybody I beat the President."

Be careful Bubba, you're one slick comment away from getting a tweet.
