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.
Golf legend Tiger Woods was in a minor car accident at his home on Friday, but it may not have been the crash that caused all his injuries. According toÂ rumors going around, it was Tiger Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren Woods, who scratched up his face – not his car.
According to police reports from the scene, Tiger Woods reportedly crashed his car into a fire hydrant and then a tree at his home in Florida just after 2:00 AM. Woods was allegedly dragged from the car by his wife, Elin Woods, who told police she had used a golf club to smash out a window of the car to get to her husband. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office reported Tiger Woods was allegedly knocked unconscious for about six minutes after the crash. He was transported to the hospital with minor injuries and later released.
Several gossip sitesÂ are now reporting that not all of Tiger Wood’s injuriesÂ may have beenÂ caused by his weirdly bad driving. According to TMZ.com, one source reports some of the injuries to the golfer’s face were caused by his wife during a heated argument shortly before the accident. The couple were reportedly arguing over a National EnquirerÂ story accusing Tiger Woods of cheating on his wife with Manhattan hostess Rachel Uchitel.
Police did not discover any evidence of alcohol involved in the accident. Although rumors are flying Tiger Woods and his wife had a massive fight shortly before the accident, authorities on scene did not officiallyÂ state anything regarding a domestic dispute in the police reports. TMZ.com, however, says Elin Woods told officers at the scene the two had been arguing.
The crash remains under investigation at this time. Police have so far been unsuccessful in their attempts to question Tiger Woods about the accident, but plan on trying again today.
