In the early Friday post on the Tiger Woods accident, we noted that it was "somewhat unusual" that Tiger Woods' wife "rescued" her husband from his crashed SUV by smashing the back window with a golf club. At 3am. Can't say this wasn't expected: TMZ reports Woods did not suffer facial lacerations from the accident and they were inflicted by wife Elin Nordegren.
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. We'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
The accident capped a rough week for Woods, who is on the front page of this week's Enquirer and Star under the headline "Tiger Woods Cheating Scandal." The tabloids claim Woods is/was having an affair with a former Manhattan party planner previously linked to married television star David Boreanaz.
