Tiger Woods was seriously injured in a car accident early Friday when his car struck a tree near his mansion in a gated waterfront community, authorities said.

I seriously hope that it isn't anything life threatening.

The Orlando Sentinel reported that the airbags in Woods' Cadillac Escalade did not deploy, meaning the vehicle was moving at a speed under 33 mph.

Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, told CNBC in an e-mail that the golfer is "fine." Thanks nyrblue2

Tiger Woods was injured in a car accident early Friday outside his Florida mansion, and a local police chief said his wife used a golf club to smash out the back window and help get the world's No. 1 golfer out of the SUV.
Woods was treated and released from a hospital in good condition, his spokesman said. The Florida Highway Patrol said Woods' vehicle hit a fire hydrant and a tree in his neighbour's yard as he pulled out of his driveway at 2:25 a.m.
Windermere police chief Daniel Saylor told The Associated Press that officers found the 33-year-old PGA star laying in the street with his wife, Elin, hovering over him.
She told officers she was in the house when she heard the accident and "came out and broke the back window with a golf club."
Woods had lacerations to his upper and lower lips, and he had blood in his mouth, Saylor said.
The chief said Woods was in and out of consciousness when his two officers arrived. He said the officers held Woods to the ground and "when he woke up, he tried to get up and lost consciousness."
He said officers treated Woods for 10 minutes until an ambulance arrived.
The Florida Highway Patrol said Woods was alone in his 2009 Cadillac when he pulled out of his driveway from his mansion at Isleworth, a gated waterfront community just outside Orlando.
The patrol reported Woods' injuries as serious, although Woods spokesman Glenn Greenspan issued a statement that Woods was treated and released.
The patrol said alcohol was not involved, although the accident remains under investigation and charges could be filed.
Left unanswered was where Woods was going at that hour. Greenspan and agent Mark Steinberg said there would be no comment beyond the short statement of the accident on Woods' Web site.
Woods, coming off a two-week trip to China and Australia earlier this month, is host of the Chevron World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, Calif., which starts Thursday. He is scheduled to have his press conference Tuesday afternoon at Sherwood Country Club. Steinberg said he did not know if Woods planned to play next week.
The accident report was not released until nearly 12 hours after Woods was injured. Patrol spokesman Kim Montes said the accident did not meet the criteria of a serious crash, and the FHP only put out a press release because of inquiries from local media.
Montes said the patrol reports injuries as serious if they require more than minor medical attention.
Air bags in the SUV did not deploy.
Investigators still have not had a chance to speak to Woods, but when they do, "we will ask him everything," Montes said. "We just haven't had a chance to do so because he was being medically treated."
Montes said charges could be filed if there was a clear traffic violation, although troopers still do not know what caused Woods' SUV to hit the hydrant and the tree.
Woods' $2.4 million home is part of an exclusive subdivision near Orlando, a community set on an Arnold Palmer-designed golf course and a chain of small lakes. The neighbourhood, which is fortified with high brick walls and has its own security force, is home to CEOs and other sports stars such as the NBA's Shaquille O'Neal.
The Orlando Sentinel reported that an orange and white barricade sat on top of a hole in front of Woods' home. About 10 feet away, there was a tire track near an oak tree in his neighbour's yard. The tree had a few scuff marks but was largely unscathed.
Woods, who has won 82 times around the world and 14 majors, attended the Stanford-Cal football game last Saturday, where he tossed the coin at the start of the game and was inducted into Stanford's sports Hall of Fame at halftime.
He won six times this year after missing eight months recovering from reconstructive surgery on his left knee. Even though he failed to win a major, Woods said he considered this a successful year because he did not know how his knee would respond.


Sure sounds like he was drunk...or something dodgey! (too slow a crash too close to home at a late hour to not be suspicious.

Hmmmmmmm, my spidey sense may have been right....would love to know the real story!


MIAMI (AFP) - Tiger Woods was to speak with police Saturday as authorities investigated the single-vehicle crash that left the global golf superstar with facial cuts and bruises. ADVERTISEMENT
http://row.bc.yahoo.com/b?P=14Yt6M6.Io1dayZMSxFdfgJZY.JqvksRoN8ACwkQ&T=13voo2qjq%2fX%3d1259446495%2fE%3d97645743%2fR%3d ca_news%2fK%3d5%2fV%3d2.1%2fW%3dHR%2fY%3dCA%2fF%3d 4139948798%2fQ%3d-1%2fS%3d1%2fJ%3d5122BECE&U=13f322fib%2fN%3dzK.sFUSO5.I-%2fC%3d655378.13225925.13365833.6258759%2fD%3dLREC %2fB%3d5316446%2fV%3d1
"Mr Woods is going to be interrogated sometime today after 3:00 pm (2000 GMT)," Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) spokeswoman Kim Montes told AFP.
Woods, 33, was treated and released from hospital after he crashed his 2009 Cadillac SUV outside his luxury Florida home early Friday, hitting a fire hydrant and ramming into a nearby tree.
A dispute between Woods and his wife, former Swedish model Elin Nordegren, was at the center of the accident, amid reports the golf icon was having an affair with a New York club hostess, celebrity news website TMZ.com reported.
By the website's account, Nordegren confronted her husband about the alleged affair, scratching his face in a heated argument before Woods sought to leave the scene as his wife chased him with a golf club, hitting the vehicle several times before the crash.
Nordegren told police she heard the crash and then used a golf club to break the back window of the SUV to help her husband.
Montes insisted that the FHP was treating the incident as a "traffic crash."
"We don't believe it is a domestic issue, but everything is still under investigation," Montes said.
While media gathered at Woods's exclusive neighborhood, Montes said the FHP would not immediately release any information gleaned from their questioning of Woods.
The investigation will also include a review of the emergency 911 call, which Montes said police would obtain on Sunday or Monday.
Authorities said Woods crashed into the fire hydrant while leaving his property around 2:25 am (0725 GMT) Friday in the Windermere community, a suburb of Orlando.
FHP earlier said Woods was transported to the hospital in "serious condition," unleashing frantic media coverage.
"Our criteria for serious injuries might be different from that of a hospital," FHP spokesman Mark Welch said, referring to the initial police report.
Florida's Health Central Hospital confirmed Friday that Woods had been treated after a "minor car accident" and released "in good condition."
Profile: Tiger Woods
The golfer, who was resting at home, added: "We appreciate very much everyone's thoughts and well wishes."
Police said Woods was in a semi-conscious state outside the vehicle with his wife next to him when they arrived. He suffered cuts to both his upper and lower lips.
No charges have been filed as police said they are still investigating the cause of the crash. It is not yet clear who might face charges.
"She was frantic, upset," Windermere police chief Dan Saylor said of Nordegren, adding he had no knowledge of domestic problems between the couple. "It was her husband laying on the ground."

"Numerous theories continue to swirl around - "
"Reports of marital troubles - "
"Tiger cancelled a meeting with authorities, although he is under no legal obligation to have such a meeting - "

As much as I respect Tiger's right to not talk to the police about what happened (since it was on private property and no crime was committed), I must say he and his wife are acting like guilty people trying to hide something. It's a shame, but this isn't going away until they come clean with what happened that night (or at least a believable lie about what happened).

It's a real shame this guy can't have an accident happen and it just not get blown into a huge deal.

This is NOT a big deal, and the media looks to pick things out in this shit, and if he came out and addressed the media, they would of picked out more.

Props to Tiger for handling this with some class, let the man live his life.

That was my first thought but now, I think the opposite. If they held a press conference, no one would believe them so why even do it?? There would be zero closure with or without a press conference. He doesn't owe us shit. We are just nosey. We just want to hear that he was banging all of these chicks and his wife went ballistic and hit him with a golf club. This was a victimless crime and, even if she beat the shit out of him, he needs to press charges before this becomes criminal. That will never happen.

As much as I would love to see him come clean about exactly what happened, I won't hold my breath. He doesn't owe anyone an explanation.

Zangetsu
12-01-2009, 05:54 PM
The only thing that I will say to counter Doc and dw's points is that today's celebrity media is relentless (as fair or unfair it is for Tiger and his family). They are going to keep digging until they find something (or until a more famous celebrity is involved in a scandal; Oprah, time to take one for the team). So, in all likelihood, the truth (or a "truth") will eventually come out.

I think Tiger's best move would have been to come clean or make up a believable lie immediately. The more these things linger, the more the media will continue to dig. Personally, I haven't really been following the story too closely, but I can only imagine the rampant speculation of the cable news shows.

12-01-2009, 06:09 PM
I agree he should be able to live his life with out dealing with all of this BS, but like Zang has said, he needs to come out and talk to the media and tell the truth or something to make this all die down, if not it's only going to get worse the more he let's this drag on.

Agreed but those that were dropped by their sponsors more than likely had 1 or both of these in common:

1. They did something so bad that the company had no choice.
2. They weren't still making them enough money.

I find it hard to believe that any of the above are true in Tiger's case.

ih8music
12-02-2009, 03:14 PM
I think it depends on how many affairs it turns out Tiger was having. If it's just one then it's probably not much of a big deal... but if it's uncovered that he's been messing around with a bunch of chicks all across the country, then it will absolutely hurt Tiger's "wholesome all-american boy" brand.

As long as it doesn't affect his golf game, he'll still have the "best golfer in the world" brand, but that title alone is probably only bringing in 1/4 of his endorsements.

either way, the tabloid press smells blood in the water and this thing is far from over. you guys heard this, right? http://www.usmagazine.com/celebritynews/news/hear-tiger-panic-to-mistress-my-wife-may-be-calling-you-2009212

WINDERMERE, Fla.–A Florida trooper who suspected Tiger Woods was driving under the influence sought a subpoena for the golfer's blood results from the hospital he was taken to after crashing his SUV, but prosecutors rejected the petition for insufficient information, according to a police report released Monday.
A witness, who wasn't identified in the report, told trooper Joshua Evans that Woods had been drinking alcohol earlier. The same witness also said Woods had been prescribed two drugs, Ambien and Vicodin. The report did not say how the witness knew that.
"Impairment of the driver is also suspected due to the careless driving that resulted in the traffic crash," Evans wrote in the report dated Nov. 30 that was released by the State Attorney General's office.
Woods' lawyer, Mark NeJame, didn't return a phone call for comment.
The world's No. 1 golfer hit a hydrant and a tree around 2:25 a.m. on Nov. 27. The Florida Highway Patrol last week cited Woods for careless driving and fined him $164 (U.S.).
Another police report offered new details into the accident from the officer who first responded to the 911 call.
Woods was at first unresponsive, lying on the road covered in a blanket and resting his head on a pillow, according to the report from the Windermere Police Department. The officer, whose name was redacted from the report, said Woods tried to stand up before the officer told him to lie down for his safety. The officer used the pillow to immobilize the golfer's spine.
Woods was bleeding from cut lips but was breathing normally. His wife, Elin, was kneeling over him.
The sport utility vehicle's engine was still running, the front passenger door was jammed and both rear door windows were broken out. Two golf clubs were next to a golf cart, which also was in the road. The officer found $235 in the vehicle, according to the report, which was obtained through a public records request.
Florida Highway Patrol investigators arrived after Woods had been taken to a hospital, the report said, explaining why they were unable to interview him at the accident site. In the days that followed, investigators tried three times to interview Woods, but he refused to meet with them.
Elin Woods told police she used a golf club to smash the back windows of the Cadillac Escalade to help her husband out. The accident – and Woods' refusal to answer questions about it – fuelled speculation about a possible dispute between the golfer and his wife.
Just days before the crash, a National Enquirer story alleged Woods had been seeing a New York nightclub hostess, Rachel Uchitel, who has denied it. After the crash, Us Weekly reported that a Los Angeles cocktail waitress named Jaimee Grubbs claims she had a 31-month affair with Woods.
Last week, Woods issued a statement saying he had let his family down with unspecified "transgressions" that he regrets with "all of my heart." He did not elaborate.

Then this will all come back up when he goes back to playing golf in the New Year, that's if it goes away before then. This may be tougher for him to come back from then his injury last year.

It's really easy for anyone not personally involved in this to say whether he should or shouldn't play in the Masters, Pebble, US Open, etc. That is for Tiger and his family to decide. You could list a ton of reasons why he could play and we could also list a ton why he shouldn't.

"Sins can be such fun. Of the seven supposedly deadly ones, only envy does not give the sinner at least momentary pleasure. And an eighth, schadenfreude — enjoyment of other persons' misfortunes — is almost the national pastime."

Tiger Woods and his wife, Elin Nordegren, came to blows on the infamous night he wrapped his SUV around a tree, according to a new report.
In an entry on the Daily Beast website (http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2010-01-24/tigers-thanksgiving-mystery----solved/?cid=hp:mainpromo3%20), journalist Gerald Posner says he has spoken to two sources who know what happened inside the Woods home around the U.S. Thanksgiving weekend.
According to this version, it was Woods who first alerted his wife, Elin, to a story that was about to break in the National Enquirer. It claimed that Woods was having an affair with hostess Rachel Uchitel.
Woods told his wife the story was false. In order to placate her, he went so far as to arrange for Uchitel and Nordegren to speak to each other on the phone. They talked for a half hour. But Nordegren remained suspicious.
Once she read the story and its detailed breakdown of what happened between Woods and Uchitel, the couple fought again. In order to end the argument, Woods took the sleep-aid Ambien and went to bed.
That was Nordegren’s cue to begin flipping through Woods’s cellphone. Posner’s sources claim that she stumbled upon a series of suspect text messages from Uchitel. One of them read: “You are the only one I’ve loved.”
Incensed, she began text messaging Uchitel, masquerading as her husband. Eventually, she phone Uchitel again. When Uchitel heard Nordegren’s voice, she reportedly blurted out an expletive. Nordegren told her, “I knew it was you.”
Cue a meltdown. Nordegren shook her husband out of his chemically-assisted slumber and began berating. Eventually, she began swinging at him. When she picked up a golf club, Woods beat a hasty retreat.
Still groggy, he jumped into his truck barefoot and took off. He didn’t make it far, ploughing into a fire hydrant and a tree. When the police arrived, Posner’s sources said Woods massaged his story so that his wife would not be implicated. The rest of the story has been played out under a withering public spotlight.
Nearly two months later, the pair has reportedly reunited in a small Mississippi town.
The National Enquirer reported it had spotted Woods outside the Gentle Path clinic in Hattiesburg, Miss., last week. He’s said to be in treatment for sex addiction.
Now a variety of sources – including local retailers – are saying that Woods’s Swedish wife has joined him there. Though the couple have retained a private security firm to keep them under wraps, People is quoting numerous town folk (http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20339105,00.html%20)who claim to have had run-ins with the disgraced golfer and his wife.
Nordegren reportedly flew into Mississippi (http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2010/01/world-exclusive-tiger-woods-wife-visits-him-rehab%20)five days ago to join her husband in therapy.
A possible wrinkle in that plan is the apparent outing of Tiger mistress No. 19.
Britain’s News of the World is reporting (http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/showbiz/697467/The-secret-birdie-no-one-knew-about-and-shes-a-double-for-Elin.html)that Woods paid $500,000 (U.S.) to Emma Rotherham, a 42-year-old mother of two. The money was purportedly in return for her silence about their affair.
Rotherham, who has two daughters, aged 16 and 25, has text messages and emails sent by Woods during the time since his much-publicized travails, according to the same report.

Talk about how poor Tiger got sucked (pardon the pun) into that world and how the pressure of being famous made him hide it from everyone, especially his loved ones. Say how he's always loved his wife, his kids, the people close to him and how all these affairs were just a byproduct of his addiction.

I will also be glad if he's in the Masters.

The media around him will be nuts though, more then before, it wont just be golf and sports media, now he's going to have everyone following him around, I hope he's ready for it.

I hope he comes back for the Masters too. It's like Sergio said, its one thing winning a major, but its totally different beating Tiger to win a major.

I can agree to a point in that beating Tiger will make it that much better while in the moment. That said, history doesn't give a shit. No one will remember that golfer X won a major while Tiger was sitting out.

Tiger Woods finally got his simmering wife that “Kobe special.” And it floats.
Woods has purchased Elin Nordegren a custom-built, 61-foot dive boat, People.com reports (http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20343486,00.html). Both Woods and Nordegren are avid divers.
In what Woods probably hopes isn’t a sign of things to come in the shaky marriage, the $2 million-3 million (U.S.) craft has been christened Solitude.
Woods also owns a larger boat, a 150-ft yacht called Privacy.
In the aftermath of his late-night, low-speed Nov. 27 car crash, it was reported that Woods had told a friend he needed to get Nordegren a “Kobe special” at diamond retailer Zale’s.
According to the same report, when the friend asked what Woods meant, the golfer replied, “A house on a finger.”
Basketball star Kobe Bryant famously bought his wife a gobstopping $4 million diamond ring after a rape charge against him was dropped.

He better hope she didn't read this, or she may need a nice Summer home on another finger too!

Tiger is going to talk to the media Friday at 11am.

Woods at this press conference is making the situation worse by not taking any questions. Generally, a press conference is designed so questions can be asked. In the end he will be judged by the sincerity of his words. Will he be contrite? I say no. Sure, he will apologize to his family, the fans, the other golfers, the sponsors but if he starts talking about golf like nothing even happened.... this whole thing could be pointless. He stays silent for 3 months and then wants people to believe hes the victim because hes a "sex addict." He should have been on the path of recovery long ago... and i dont see this press conference fixing much.

I'm not gonna play the speculation game this time. I'll just say "Proves he wants to right his wrongs" is an extremely gullible comment, wait to see a little more from the guy before we give him the official "comeback man of the year" award. All we know from today is he wants to fix his PUBLIC image. We can't say anything else.

Hey, go be a top 10 recognized face in the entire world and then get caught cheating with 20+ women. See if you don't look humiliated and emotional at your first press conferrence. Doesn't mean shit except hes human.

Just as likely, an embarassed horndog is just trying to fix his image so he can both pad his fortune but more importantly clean up his legacy. I'm not gonna go calling him genuine and say hes proven he wants to fix his life based on a 15 minute talk. Maybe he is, if so, good on him cause the dude has some fucked up priorities. But I'd say chances are far more in favor of him going right back and just trying to be a bit more secretive about his affairs (Cause hes apparently so into sex that he can't see that its impossible for a man like him to do anything secretly).

Thats my monthly dosage of Tiger Woods gossip. This needs to die.

As someone who's been with my wife for such a long time, and having a child, theres no way I'll ever forget about the things Tiger has done to his wife and children. Truly fucked, and if he never plays golf again I could careless.

My point was, he's trading in something he loves to do (golf) for the sake of himself, his problems and his family. Going into sex rehab was huge for him. He has problems, and judging from his words, face and seemingly genuine speech, it looked like he is ready to fight against it.

No one mentioned the "comeback person of the year" that's you blowing my words up. I hope to see a brand new Tiger in the future, and someone who can share with the world the problems he's had even if he never returns to golf again. Because this year we've seen numerous people busted for cheating on their loved ones, and that's beyond fucked up. Rick Pitino and Tiger are among thousands of others, it's sick.

I don't believe Tiger is a completely changed human being right now, but I think he's taking the right steps to become the new person he seems to want to be.

Instead of rooting against him, I'm rooting for him. But then again, he's nothing more than a golfer to me. That's my take.

This is kind of how I feel as well, I will still cheer him as a golfer, but after that not so much, I will never look at him the same way again, good for him for coming out today and talking, but like some said after, he did not look like he wanted to do this today, looked kind of like the 1st of his 12 steps. I hope he wanted to do this today, but Iam not 100% sold he did.

Am I the only one who found that whole press conference to super phoney. If it was true regret, he wouldn't need to look down every 2 seconds at what was written. He acted like it was heartfelt, but I didn't buy it...seems more like a guy who's pissed he got caught more than a guy that truly feels bad about what happened.

PS: notice how when he was telling the truth (eg. that he was in rehab, etc.) he didn't look down as much as at the beginning when he was BS'ing. He sounded like a robot at first, then truthfell for a bit, then when he got mad at the media, that was the real Tiger....and that guy is a dick.

To say I knew he wasn't perfect would be long overdue. The way he carried himself before all this made me think he was too cool for school. I looked at his talent and that's all I'll look at because the kind of person he is just wants me to take a 9-iron to his face.

Golf isn't the same without him, but if he doesn't return or return to form I wouldn't care. He has a lot more fixing to do with his family than golf.

I just think with all we know about how fickle this country is and how they react to certain things, anyone here would be insulting themselves to say they couldn't spend weeks researching TV's most heartfelt and well-recieved apologies and confessions and give an audience 15 minutes of you simply appearing to truly feel remorse for what you did. At some point its really just common sense.

To addres your first sentence, when you do a stint of probation the concept of admitting you're wrong/flawed, apologizing to people (Espicially family), and having to appear remorseful becomes so imbedded in your every day life that maybe my perspective on the topic is a bit skewed. You meet one of their "drug counselers,: you've met them all and you really just come at them with pre-planned lines that they love to hear. I could hardly keep a straight face through some of the shit I spoonfed those guys.

Which brings me to my point....you study a group of people, and in this case Woods is basically speaking to USA, and you figure out what works on them. It is hardly any secret what this country likes hearing. Quite frankly, Woods has had enough time to be emotional, collect his thoughts, and figure out one single press conferrence to squash this issue (assuming nothing else pops up). This was supposed to be that press conferrence and he fucked it up, IMO. There was nothing remotely difficult about getting up there, maybe faking some tears, making it clear that his family is his priority #1, and taking any and all questions and basically dodging them all while constantly emphasizing the family. The way he did it was puzzling, at best.

If you're a woman who's been cheated on and this reminds you of that situation, I get why you'd be upset.

If you're a sponsor and you invested millions of dollars into Tiger and his whole image, I get why you'd be upset.

If you're in Tiger's family, I get why you'd be upset.

But otherwise, the only reason you even know about this is because sensationalism sells papers, and people will get upset about what the media wants them to get upset about. "Wag the Dog" and all that.

(I don't think any of them are buying his BS apology - 1 is his mom, 1 works for him and 1 works for Nike)


VANCOUVER-Why is this man telling me these things?
We've barely ever even met. He shouldn't be speaking so to a stranger.
And I don't believe hardly a word of it either. My mother didn't raise a dope. Who's he trying to dupe?
Like that part about not getting to play by different rules than other people. Of course he gets to play by different rules. That's one privilege enjoyed by famous people, sometime even when they break the law, although this fellow committed no criminal offence. He may have trashed the vows of marriage, as most people at least superficially accept them, but surely that's a matter between husband and wife, unless the betrayed spouse is demanding a public mea culpa.
He's in the dog house where adulterous hounds often end up except, in his case, it's a fancier pad with a big tab daily room rate and custodians of the joint have pathologized the libido to the extent of branding such behaviour an addiction, no doubt with a 12-step self-help program to follow before graduating.
"Hello, my name is Tiger and I haven't cheated on my wife in four months."
I was wrong, he said. I was foolish, he said. I was caught, he didn't say.
"I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible and selfish behaviour I engaged in."
To these ears, it came out thusly: "I am deeply sorry for shagging a string of bar hostesses and porn starlets and bimbos, most of whom – did you notice? – were big-haired blondes with cantilevered boobs and not a one black like me, or even half-Asian like me. I'm really regretful that so many, at least the dozen you've all heard about (wink, wink) weren't able to keep their mouths shut after rubbing up against my putter. And I'm sorry to the point of semi-disclosure that my activities have cost multi-millions in endorsements lost, though I'm still the richest quasi-athlete (this is golf, after all) on the planet, just don't for a minute suggest I'm being vengeful by staging this non-press conference on the very day of a tournament scheduled by my first-to-bail sponsor.
"This is merely a coincidence because, while I've been out of that ridiculous sex addiction rehab hangout for a while, this was the only open space on my agenda to formally show my face before a hand-selected group of my very bestest buddies on the sports media planet, and by the way I would like to thank them for being so complicit in my phony image and never writing or telecasting what they've known all along.
"Indeed, excuse me while I give some of them a hug, but first I have to kiss my mom, who taught me everything I know about Buddhism, most of which, of course, I've forgotten or ignored because following those articles of self-discipline – exercising restraint and stuff – is hard for a famous person.
"See, trouble found me. Plus, if I were being honest, which I'm not, I'd remind everyone again that filthy rich and phenomenally exceptional athletes occupy a special place in the moral firmament – and the VIP lounges, where it's pretty much anything goes. So what's a handsome and rich and secretly (if not so secretly) sexual adventurer supposed to do – say thanks, but no thanks, I'm married with children and if The War Department (my wife Elin) learns about this, maybe by checking my voice mail and BlackBerry, she might threaten divorce and get some big-brain lawyer to draw up a new post-nup agreement.
"But don't you people go blaming Elin for any of this. The woman is a saint and I am really, really still in love with her and really, really sexually attracted to her, no matter what any of those leg-overs might have told media slimeballs. She never hit me with a golf club that Thanksgiving night before I totalled my Escalade. And I've never hit her either. 'There has never been an episode of domestic violence in our marriage, ever. Elin has shown enormous grace and poise throughout this ordeal. Elin deserves praise, not blame.'
"The rest of you, however, and especially those aggressive paparazzi, should be disembowelled. Shame on you for chasing my kids and my mom, even stalking my 2 1/2-year old daughter at her nursery school. Can you see the smoke coming out of my ears? Hoo-boy, I'm angry. What do you mean this was to be expected as a part of the fame package when my infidelity is Page One all over the planet and I've gone into hiding. "Sorry, where was I? Oh yes, apologizing to my sponsors and my employees and all the kids who looked up to me as a role model, which was how my dad groomed me since I was 2 years old and swinging clubs with Bob Hope, who's still dead. And have I mentioned the scholarships that I fund, the one with my dad's name on it because he was my hero but he's dead, too, and, see, I have issues. But I still am a nice guy under all those layers of pretence. 'Character and decency are what really count.'
"But let's get down to the short strokes now. I will get out on the golf circuit again, maybe later this year, at which juncture fans will start watching the sport again. I will save golf from, uh, myself.
"Now, however, I must return to rehab seclusion and listen obediently to a whole bunch of other guys talking about all the nookie they've had, which makes me kind of wistful and, well, horny."

They just need distractions in life and this one combines sports, sex, and scandal, so men can finally watch a soap opera without feeling "gay" about it.

Sad state of affairs, my friend.

He will be intense as usual but i think his behavior will be subdued. Robotic, no smiles, and definately no big tiger fist pumps. Golf is boring without him and im glad hes coming back but he chose Augusta mainly because the media is controlled.

Personally I hope he misses the cut and gets heckled like shooter McGavin... but in time i would like to see the old tiger back.

LOS ANGELES - A former porn actress released sexually graphic text messages Thursday that she says prove her affair with Tiger Woods and she said she may reveal more potentially embarrassing information about golfer as he prepares to return to competition next month.
Joslyn James, whose real name is Veronica Siwik-Daniels, posted more than 100 messages on her website that she says came from Woods and indicate he arranged to have her stay at the same hotel.
Some of the messages show a desire for rough sex. In a message from Aug. 29, the person she says is Woods says he wants to slap her and that she should beg the next time he sees her.
The messages, released just two days after Woods announced he would end his four-month, self-imposed exile to play at the Masters at Augusta National in Georgia, could be a distraction as he prepares for his comeback.
A request for comment from a Woods spokesman was not immediately returned.
James denied she was trying to get even with Woods for breaking her heart when he ended their three-year affair and refused to publicly acknowledge it.
"I just wanted the public to know and the truth to be out there for me to have people see what I was being told and not just judge me for being with a married guy," she told The Associated Press.
James said she would begin posting in the days ahead some of the more than 1,000 text messages she said she has from Woods.
James said she met Woods while working at a Las Vegas nightclub he frequented.
The final three texts James released were dated Oct. 4 and indicate the sender became enraged with her, apparently after their relationship was nearly discovered.
"Don't ... talk to me," the final one said, using an expletive. "You almost just ruined my whole life. If my agent and these guys would have seen you there."
She said the relationship didn't end, however, until several weeks later.


Vicious Tiger! :lol::lol::lol:

He's still a scumbag for cheating on his wife & kids... but without the corresponding texts from James, it's hard to really understand the context of some of the more extreme messages. My guess is that she set him up - at the very least, it makes you wonder what she's hiding.

http://www.thestar.com/sports/golf/woods/article/793239--dimanno-tiger-woods-rebirth-brought-to-you-by-nike


Just when it seems that Tiger Woods has got a grasp of scruples – which are not the same thing as morals – he puts his foot in it.
To sell shoes.
Allows Nike to exploit both his personal travails and the memory of a beloved father with the most distasteful TV commercial in recent memory – a creepy admonition from beyond the grave as Woods stares silently, sombrely, into the camera.
Earl Woods is Dead Man Talking, his words from a 2004 documentary resurrected in a stark black-and-white ad that hit the airwaves on the eve of the Masters in Augusta, Ga. The commentary – he sounds like James Earl Jones playing God – is mystifying but larded with momentous dramatic import under the circumstances.
"Did you learn anything?" Mr. Woods asks.
"Tiger, I am more prone to be inquisitive to promote discussion. I want to find out what your thinking was. I want to find out what your feelings are, and did you learn anything?"
This is not the first time the late Woods has appeared in a post-mortem commercial. Footage of Tiger and his dad was used shortly after Mr. Woods succumbed to cancer following the grieving son's six-week absence from the tour. But that ad was benign, defensible – if barely – on the grounds that Tiger was still coping with his dad's passing, reluctant to let go and paying poignant tribute to the man who made him.
The current ad is Nike playing the dead dad card for penitence and profit. At best, it's a wincing act of self-flagellation, the son mutely acknowledging how much he's let down the one person he always strived to impress. It's hard to believe Nike had the nerve to go there and that Tiger allowed it.
Creatively, the commercial is effective in its evocative moodiness. Yet if it was a genuine statement that Tiger Woods wanted to make, one more expression of remorse – specifically skewed as contrite conscience to the ghost of his father – then there were more pure vehicles for doing so. Even a public service announcement, however weirdly presented – in aid of what, the pitfalls of sex addiction? – would have been more palatable. At least there would have been no grimy profit quotient attached.
Instead, Woods has prostituted both himself and his father for the benefit of his most important sponsor – admittedly one of the few that have stood by the fallen star throughout his troubles.
More than any other corporate sponsor, Nike owns Tiger. It's been a symbiotic dance of iconic brands, a relationship that has gone a long way toward vaulting Tiger into billion-dollar endorsement territory. Little surprise, but hugely telling, was the reference Tiger made to his sponsors during last Monday's news conference; how he'd apologized to them in the early days of his fall from grace, when he was still refusing to be seen or heard by the public and the media.
It certainly sounded as if, on his own list of priorities, those from whom he asked forgiveness, the endorsement executives were right up there with humiliated wife and disappointed mom, just as his closest go-to Republic of Tiger representatives were in the front row at his highly-scripted no-questions mea culpa event in February.
Certainly it behooves Nike to assist in the rehabilitation of their prized spokesman. In a statement the company released on Wednesday, Nike said: "We support Tiger and his family. As he returns to competitive golf, the ad addresses his time away from the game using the powerful words of his father."
But those words have been deliberately taken out of context and thus have no more moral gravitas than text cranked out by copywriters. Worse, in fact, since no one has any idea what Mr. Woods would say if he'd been around to witness his son's tawdry infidelities and coarse behaviour as exposed by a sorry string of cocktail waitresses, club hostesses and porn starlets. Could be Mr. Woods, himself widely reported to have been less than a faithful husband, might have greeted the whole sex scandal with a that's-my-boy wink. And let's not even play couch-shrink by speculating how the example of the father influenced the son.
Woods has done an impressive job of redeeming himself this week as a professional athlete, putting the focus once again on his talent and competitive mettle. A game that is so unforgiving to its practitioners, on the links, has been kinder than most had predicted for someone who's not swung a club in earnest since last November.
While many might disagree, in my view Woods went farther than he was obliged to go during Monday's presser. Some questions deserve no more than a none-of-your-business response. He's not an elected official or priest, though clearly Woods has been seized by the evangelism of rehab.
The polite, hush-hush cathedral of golf at Augusta has provided a favourably made-to-order environment for Tiger's Second Act. But it would have gone over better without the commercial break for penitent, papa and swoosh.

What Earl Woods was really talking about in the Nike ad...


The voiceover provided by the late Earl Woods in a new Nike ad was not originally spoken in reference to his golfer son, Tiger, but rather was an oblique potshot at Tiger’s mother, Kultida.

The source of the audio, which many have criticized as crass, is a 2004 DVD about the younger Woods’s life, according to Sports by Brooks.

The ad features a black-and-white image of the Tiger Woods, while his father, who died four years ago, speaks in the background: “Tiger, I am more prone to be inquisitive, to promote discussion. I want to find out what your thinking was. I want to find out what your feelings are. Did you learn anything?”

In its original context, Earl Woods was not speaking about his son. The first word in the ad – “Tiger” – was apparently tacked on by Nike.

Instead, Earl Woods appears to have taken taking a subtle jab at his ex-wife, Tiger’s mother, Kultida.

“Authoritarian. Yeah, Tida is very authoritative. She is very definitive. ‘Yes’ and ‘no.’ I am more prone to be inquisitive, to promote discussion. I want to find out what you’re thinking was, I want to find out what your feelings are and did you learn anything? So, we were two different types, but we co-existed pretty well.”From the Toronto Star: http://www.thestar.com/sports/golf/article/792718--what-tiger-s-father-was-really-talking-about-in-nike-ad

I think people just need to pull the stick out of their asses. These guys are competitive athletes just like any other player from any other sport and its absolutely assinine to hold cursing against them when they're playing bad. Every athlete of every sport does the exact same. Take the fucking mics off the players, it absolutely says nothing negative about him at all that he drops Fbombs or whatever he says when hes playing bad.

It's not about "every athlete in every other sport". It's about what they do in THIS sport, and that's not what happens in golf. Tiger himself, said he was going to dial it down because he feels like he was disrespecting the sport. It isn't when "they're playing bad" it's when HE'S playing bad. He's the only one that conducts himself like that.

I agree take the mics off him, but that's not what is going to happen. Golf is the sport they call the gentleman's game, and that's how it's taken by every player on tour. It'd be alot different if everyone threw clubs and dropped swear words. The fact of the matter is, people like Pat Perez did it and they weren't ever shown again on TV (obviously he isn't as known as Tiger).

I'd just pull the plug on Tiger, because we know the rest of the sport controls themselves with a bit of class and maturity.

Eh, I really don't buy into all that. Sure Tiger could be nice to all the billionares in charge of the game and help improve the sport's ratings but I'd hardly call it legit to hold his cursing against him and dislike the guy for it. As far as I'm concerned he hurts absolutely no one but rich fat assholes who end up losing pocket change to slightly rudced ratings (Shit, maybe even improved, people like hissy fits from top stars) so IMO you guys are overreacting. I've heard most of his best stuff and quite frankly it rarely ever crosses any sort of line at all. Lets not fool ourselves and act like either one of you gives a flying fuck about the old rich fat white asshole tradition of keeping golf a "gentlemen's sport." Quite frankly nobody should care about that because its a giant load of shit anyway, gentlemen's sport, oh please:rolleyes: Tiger is not obligated to abide by any stupid stuckup fat white asshole traditions, there is nothing insulting to him personally about his tendency to curse in response to poor play.

And sure, every other golfer handles it fine, and they're all as famous and have as much pressure on them as Woods does every match, right? Oh, and they're all the best golfers in history by far too, right? Oh wait, maybe Woods is a special case and shouldn't be compared to anybody. Woods has 10-20x more pressure on him to perform well than any golfer in the world every single time he steps out onto the course so please don't point to No Name Joe Shmoe as an example of how Tiger shoukd behave because I'd love to see Joe Shmoe compose himself any better under the weight of the pressure the world likes to put on Tiger every game. Quite frankly a simple "God Dammit Tiger you SUCK" muttered to himself is well composed given the circumstances as far as I'm concerned.

I'm not saying I'm glad to hear him say fuck, but who cares? You guys aren't the ones who get hurt from the reduced ratings so quit acting like you give a fuck about the respect for the sport (Hint - No one respects it anyway. You can enjoy playing it but anyone who actually respects those stuckup bullshit traditions is just insane) and just let this senseless Tiger hatefest conclude.

04-14-2010, 09:13 AM
Kyle, I'm not typing any of this because I have a problem with the ratings. I don't know anything about ratings, don't care about ratings and this isn't about them. You must not be too big into golf to go about this "old white man's traditions." Do you actually play golf?

You might think it's different in Tigers case, and because of the amount of pressure on him he can act like a little 12 year old and throw clubs and cuss, that's fine. He's a grown man (obviously he isn't, sleeping with 20 different whores when he has a wife and two kids), but he's supposed to be a grown man, he's the golfer everyone wants on camera and I personally don't want to see the guy cussing and throwing clubs.

Tiger personally acknowledged his antics on the course are disrespectful to the game. So having you try to bullshit around it and say it's just people attacking him, that's wrong. Maybe more people are upset about it now because of what he's done... but again it's what HE'S done that's made it like this

I didn't mind the fire he had before his whole incident, but I didn't like the F-bombs on camera. But now, when he's under such scrutiny and even says so himself that he should cut it down, he still goes out there and acts the same person?

Tiger Woods is fucking immature.

Sure hes immature. Sure he disrespects the game. My point is, who really cares? Who respects golf as some sacred example of gentlemenly conduct and can't handle the tantrum or thrown clubs? If you were some stuck up old retired asshole in tight khaki pants and a pink polo, I'd understand why you have an issue with his respect for the game. But I can't for the life of me figure out why you would choose to take such a strong stance on such a trivial issue. My point isn't that hes mature or respectful, its that his lack of either quality really doesn't need to be a point of discussion at all as long as he doesn't hurt anybody.

My point is, dude can get pissed but dude shouldn't let it show, end of story. Everyone on the course plays bad at times, everyone is just as fierce a competitor as Tiger but they very rarely let emotions show on the golf course.

Yeah I heard about this yesterday, my 1st thought was oh yeah there is a major this week.

I think he might do pretty well this weekend, looking forward to watching some golf.

Just remember what Tiger did last time the US Open was at Pebble Beach. He shot 12 under, winning the tournament by 15 strokes.

If he has shot that much of the stuff around hes bound to have hit a target or two.

That would be very, very low. I would say somewhere in the 500-700 range.

They are saying anywhere between 100 and 500 million.

Did anyone catch that tiger picture that went around the AP today. A tiger shot actually hit a camera and the fella snapped the shot, the ball actually obscures tigers hip in the picture. Its pretty cool.

First thing I notice about that picture is the ball.

Second thing I notice is the 2nd guy from the right in the front row.

Hahahaha we must know more, who is he? He looks like he could be related to double rainbow man.

I am not much a golf follower but one thing that crossed my mind is how weird it would be to have a crowed of people that large around you while you are golfing. I didn't know they were literally like 5 feet away from you. The little kid peaking out from under legs is funny too. :lol:

Mystery solved! At last, Cigar Guy's secret identity revealed!
http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/golf/blog/devil_ball_golf/post/Mystery-solved-At-last-Cigar-Guy-s-secret-iden?urn=golf-275853

Cigar Guy's secret identity has been revealed, and in the end, the truth was right in front of our faces all along.

Cigar Guy is, of course, the mysterious grinning stranger in the corner of that famous Daily Mail Tiger Woods photo (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/golf/article-1317267/RYDER-CUP-2010-The-moment-Tiger-Woodss-challenge-Celtic-Manor-halted--photographer.html) from the Ryder Cup last week. Wearing what appeared to be a turban and smoking a cigar the size of a small tree, the absurdly out-of-place Cigar Guy kicked off a worldwide Internet game of Photoshop one-upsmanship. Within moments, Cigar Guy began showing up all throughout history, like here:

http://a323.yahoofs.com/ymg/ept_sports_golf_experts__14/ept_sports_golf_experts-190034904-1286713441.jpg?ymiR05DDJKThKLVk (http://a323.yahoofs.com/ymg/ept_sports_golf_experts__14/ept_sports_golf_experts-190034904-1286713441.jpg?ymiR05DDJKThKLVk)
You can see plenty more of the same at Funny or Die (http://www.funnyordie.com/stories/4047ba27f4/smiling-cigar-guy-tiger-woods-cigar-indian-cigar-man-pictures?rel=featured), among many other places. Heck, at least one site is already selling a Cigar Guy t-shirt (http://www.tauntr.com/content/cigar-guy-shirt-0).
But at long last, he's been found! The London Daily Mail did the investigative work (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1319177/Cigar-guy-unmasked-How-Mail-Sunday-photo-hilarious-global-phenomenon.html#ixzz11u1IKSVc), and it turns out that Cigar Guy is actually a mild-mannered, mildly embarrassed young man! (Isn't that always the way with our heroes?) Cigar Guy is Rupesh Shingadia, a 30-year-old investment analyst who -- no kidding -- still lives with his parents in South London.
The first clue that Cigar Guy was not all he seemed was the fact that the "turban" turned out to be a ponytail wig, as you can see here from this alternate angle:
http://a323.yahoofs.com/ymg/ept_sports_golf_experts__14/ept_sports_golf_experts-69140541-1286718097.jpg?ymRa15DDdDYYyTgO
And as it turned out, the mustache was fake too. Shingadia was a few weeks early for Halloween. But who was the inspiration for his costume? Why, someone that golf fans should have recognized instantly, of course:
http://a323.yahoofs.com/ymg/ept_sports_golf_experts__14/ept_sports_golf_experts-539923824-1286714178.jpg?ymCd05DDgxW1zF_b
That's right, he was dressed as Miguel Angel Jimenez (http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/pga/players/553/), the smooth, cigar-smoking golf version of The Most Interesting Man In The World.

"I wanted to do something to show my support for the European team, and I thought of Miguel," Shingadia told the Daily Mail (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1319177/Cigar-guy-unmasked-How-Mail-Sunday-photo-hilarious-global-phenomenon.html#ixzz11u1IKSVc). "These days sportsmen have become devoid of character. But Miguel does his own thing and I love the way he walks around the course with a cigar clamped between his teeth."

Beyond that, well ... there's not really all that much to tell about a guy that dressed up as another guy and happened to end up the focus of attention in one of the most celebrated photos of the year, if not the decade. Shingadia said he had no intention of playing to the TV cameras; he was there to watch some golf.

"My friends were keen to get me together with Miguel," he said. "I was quite close to him at the 13th. I like to think there was a flicker of a smile when he looked in my direction. His caddie was certainly laughing."
And a few holes later, with one fateful Woods mis-hit, so was the rest of the planet.

According to Radar Online (http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2010/10/exclusive-tiger-woods-divorce-payout-wife-revealed-110-million), Elin Nordegren, formerly Elin Woods, is going to get a pretty nice lump of cash out of this whole "Escalade-waitresses-porn star" debacle that happened to the top golfer in the land nearly a year ago. Radar is saying that Elin will get $110 million from Tiger when the papers are signed, a sum that has been tossed around ever since news hit that the two would be splitting.


I think she could have gotten a lot more. I was expecting she would get at least 200 million

That does seem low, I heard alot of talk about her getting around $500 million.

She's still going to be getting a ton of money for child support, so the $110 million is hardly all she's getting.
