Following his bizarre car accident on Friday, Tiger Woods has announced he will not be attending his charity golf tournament, the Chevron World Challenge, due to his “injuries”. Considering Woods is still reluctant to show his messed up face to police, it’s no surprise he doesn’t want to show it to the public either.
“I am extremely disappointed that I will not be at my tournament this week,” Tiger Woods posted on his website Monday. “I am certain it will be an outstanding event and I’m very sorry that I can’t be there.”
Woods will also reportedly not compete in any other events for the remainder of the year. The Chevron World Challenge has graciously announced they will refund tickets at face value for those who prefer not to attend without Tiger’s presence at the tourney.
Police, meanwhile, are still trying to get face time with Tiger Woods over the whole car accident incident. A spokeswoman for the Florida Highway Patrol said on Monday they have tried to speak to Woods repeatedly but the golf legend isn’t interested in cooperating.
Rumors surrounding golf legend Tiger Woods‘ strange car accident on Friday continue to swirl around the Net. The leading theory is that Woods actually ran into a fire hydrant and tree at his home because his wife, Elin Nordegren Woods, was chasing him down the driveway with a golf club and beating on his car. That’s pure speculation at this point, but something weird is most certainly going on.
The first reports from the scene claimed Elin Nordegren ‘rescued’ her hubby after his crash by smashing in a window of his car with a golf club. This in itself is bizarre and not just because she gave police two different stories about how and when she obtained the golf club. After all, it wasn’t Elin who called 911 apparently, it was a neighbor. Shouldn’t her first response to seeing her husband wrecked into a tree have been to call for help?
Then we have the odd behavior of Tiger Woods himself, who has repeatedly refused to be seen by or talk to police. Perhaps because he doesn’t want them to see the injuries to his face were caused by another human, not by the crash? According to several tabloid reports bouncing around out there, Tiger Woods and his wife were allegedly having a nasty argument about rumors he had an affair with New York hostess Rachel Utichel and Elin Woods scratched up Tiger’s face during the fight.
Lastly, although police have ruled out alcohol being involved in the accident, Tiger Woods was reportedly seriously out of it at the accident scene, drifting in and out of consciousness. His injuries do not appear to have been major enough to cause such a blackout, but it’s reported Woods may have been dosed on pain pills for a previous injury.
With Tiger Woods seemingly still quite reluctant to talk to authorities, police are reportedly taking steps to obtain a warrant for the golfer’s medical records and any possible video footage of the accident from the security cameras at his home if Woods continues to refuse to talk.
The rumors, for now, are still just rumors. But we’re betting there is definitely more to this story than Woods and his wife have fessed up to so far.
