Last night Twitter was abuzz with news of Tiger Woods being “seriously injured” in a car accident. Turns out it was a minor accident and Woods was fine.
But there could be some red-top mileage here.
The UK’s Daily Mail quotes, among other sources, TMZ in a story which claims that Woods pranged the car after a row with his wife, Elin Nordegren.
From their story: “Last night TMZ, the website that broke the story of Michael Jackson’s death, claimed Woods and his 29-year-old wife had rowed before the golfer got in his car. One police source called it ‘a domestic issue’. Although they also stated that Woods was not drunk, he could be charged if he was not wearing his seatbelt – an offence in Florida – as well as other minor traffic offences.”
And another odd detail: “The world number one golfer first hit a fire hydrant then smashed into a neighbour’s tree moments after leaving his £24million Orlando mansion during the early hours. His wife, Swedish model Elin Nordegren, is said to have smashed open the back window of the £500million star’s car with a golf club to help get her husband out.”
Now, forgive me for a fertile imagnination, but was the wife chasing after the car with a golf club when it hit the tree? Dunno, it’s all very odd.

Everybody has a right to some privacy in their lives. Whether there is any adultery involved or not is their own business, and they should be allowed to settle it within the parties concerned.

That just sounds like a guilty conscience.

Yes Golf Reviews but Mr. Woods is the greatest sportsman alive today and people and children look up to him. He has to behave himself if he wants to treated with respect and adoration from all his fans. So I think we have a right to know if he is a scumbag or not.

hmmm 24 Million pound house! yet he crashed his 500 million pound car?!?! Tiger Woods sell the car and buy 18 more mansions!!!

The report is as dodgy as the whole Tiger woods story.

Sergio, if you look closely you will see that the writer meant that star (Woods) is worth 500mil pounds, but the writing is generally **** so I dont blame you for your confusion.

Do you think Tiger will ever recover his golf game? I sometimes wonder if he will ever be able to regain his focus. Hopefully for golf’s sake, he will. Maybe he will be back on track in a year or two.
