Tiger Woods Issues Statement

December 2, 2009

I think it’s finally time to bury this.

Why should Tiger Woods have to apologize, unless he has something to hide which it appears that he doesn’t. ‘

Does this mean that everyone who is issued a ticket needs to make a public statement.

The police have let this go so why can’t everyone else? Thoughts?

From The Statement:

But no matter how intense curiosity about public figures can be, there is an important and deep principle at stake which is the right to some simple, human measure of privacy. I realize there are some who don’t share my view on that. But for me, the virtue of privacy is one that must be protected in matters that are intimate and within one’s own family. Personal sins should not require press releases and problems within a family shouldn’t have to mean public confessions.


Tiger Woods Will Not Play in Own Tournament

December 1, 2009

Tiger Woods has announced that he will not be playing in his own golf tournament in southern California because of injuries he suffered near his Florida home early Friday morning.

There are still rumors running wild surrounding this incident. Was Tiger drinking? Was there a domestic violence issue? Was Tiger cheating?

All I know is that Tiger is not speaking with the police but his attorney Mark NeJame (well known recently from the Casey/Caylee Anthony case) handed over the required documents on  Sunday at Woods’ home and no further discussion is expected.

From CNN:

“I am extremely disappointed that I will not be at my tournament this week,” Woods said of the Chevron World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, California. “I am certain it will be an outstanding event and I’m very sorry that I can’t be there.”

He also canceled a Tuesday news conference for the start of the tournament, which helps raise money for Tiger Woods Foundation programs.

Woods suffered minor injuries in a vehicle accident early Friday in his luxury neighborhood near Orlando, Florida, according to a police accident report.

State police in Florida said Monday an investigation of the single-vehicle crash “is ongoing and charges are pending.”

The incident has ended Woods’ golf appearances until next season, according to a statement posted on his Web site.

“Woods will not participate in any other tournaments in 2009 and will return to action next year,” the statement said.

Tiger Woods, Wife, Still Won’t Speak With Police

November 28, 2009

Tiger Woods and his wife, Elin Nordegren, were not available to speak to Florida state troopers for the second straight day, asking them to return tomorrow to clear up questions about how he crashed his SUV into a tree.

The accident came just two days after the National Enquirer published a story alleging that Woods had been seeing a night club hostess, and that they recently were together in Melbourne, Australia.

I’m starting to think that something is definitely up with this story. Anybody else smell a cover up?

From CNN:

State troopers arrived at the home of Tiger Woods on Saturday to interview the pro golfer and his wife about a car crash near his home, but were told the couple was not available to talk as scheduled, a spokeswoman for the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The troopers were asked by Woods’ agent to postpone the interview until Sunday, spokeswoman Kim Miller said.

State troopers had tried to speak to Woods on Friday as part of a routine car accident investigation, but his wife said he was sleeping, said Kim Miller, a spokeswoman for the Florida highway patrol.

Woods was treated and released from a hospital after suffering minor injuries in a car accident early Friday in his neighborhood in Windermere.

A joint statement from Woods’ publicist and Health Central Hospital said Woods was in “good condition” after the accident outside his home.

From the Associated Press:

The Florida Highway Patrol said the announcement that Woods and his wife, Elin, could not speak to authorities on Saturday came from his agent. Mark Steinberg of IMG did not immediately respond to a text seeking comment.

Troopers previously tried to talk to Woods late Friday. The patrol said his wife told troopers Woods was sleeping, and they agreed to return the next day.

Woods smashed his Cadillac near his $2.4 million mansion at 2:25 a.m. on Friday and was briefly hospitalized, police said. His lips were cut, and Windermere police chief Daniel Saylor has said Woods’ wife used a golf club to smash out a back window and help Woods from the car.

Sergeant Kim Montes, the patrol spokeswoman, said it was “kind of normal” for Woods not to speak on Friday, the day he was treated and released from a hospital.

“It is unusual that we haven’t gotten a statement,” she said. “This just delays us to getting closer to the completion of the investigation.”

Were Tiger Woods Injuries Caused By His Accident…Or His Wife?

November 27, 2009

I’ve been wondering this all day since I first heard reports that Tiger Woods was in an accident outside his home early this morning.

It was about the same time that I read reports that Woods was supposedly cheating on his wife.

Now, check out this story on and decide for yourself.

From TMZ:

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.

Tiger Woods’ Wife Rescues Golf’s Number One Player

November 27, 2009

Reports this afternoon say that Tiger Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren, used a golf club to smash the back window of his vehicle and helped get the golfer out of his car after a “minor” accident early this morning.

From ESPN:

Windermere police chief Daniel Saylor told The Associated Press on Friday that Elin Nordegren told officers she was in the house when she heard the accident and came outside. Saylor says officers found Woods laying in the street with his wife hovering over him.

Police said Woods hit a fire hydrant and part of a tree early Friday. Saylor says Woods was in and out of consciousness when officers arrived.

Saylor said Woods had cuts on his lips and blood in his mouth. He says his officers gave him first aid until fire rescue came about 10 minutes later. Woods was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated and released later in the day.

Saylor says his officers do not believe alcohol was involved.

UPDATE: Were Tiger’s injuries caused by his jealous wife?

Reports continue to circulate this afternoon that Tiger Woods was involved in a serious car accident early this morning near his Florida home.

The Florida State Highway Patrol said the crash is still under investigation, but charges are pending.

The Associated Press reports that CNBC sports business reporter Darren Rovell sent out a Twitter message about noon saying that Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg says Woods “is fine.”

We’ll continue to hope for the best and that the latest Associated Press report, that Tiger is out of the woods, is correct. It’s amazing to watch on Twitter how fast this story has taken off.

UPDATE: CNN also reports that Tiger Woods was released from hospital and treated for facial lacerations.

From USA Today:

The agent for Tiger Woods has told USA TODAY that the golf superstar is fine after crashing his vehicle near outside his Florida home early Friday.

Mark Steinberg, senior vice president of IMG, confirmed Woods was in an accident.

Earlier, Florida Highway Patrol reported Woods was transported to the hospital after hitting a fire hydrant near his residence in Windermere, Fla., outside Orlando.

Health Central Hospital in nearby Ocoee is expected to release a statement on Woods by 4 p.m. ET, according to a hospital operator.

From ESPN:

The highway patrol reported Woods’ injuries as serious, though Woods spokesman, Glenn Greenspan, said Friday afternoon that the golfer was treated at the hospital and released in good condition. Greenspan’s statement termed the accident “minor.”

The police report narrative said the “driver had just pulled out of the driveway at his residence … as [vehicle] began to drive on Deacon Circle, [vehicle] struck a fire hydrant. The front of [vehicle] then struck a tree…”

The airbags in the car did not deploy, according to a report in the Orlando Sentinel. The newspaper said airbags typically do not deploy if a vehicle is traveling less than 33 miles per hour.
