TMZ reports that Tiger Woods had a conversation in which he claimed that his facial lacerations were caused not by his car accident, but by his 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.
How does this mesh with the earlier report of Nordegren freeing Woods from the car via smashing out the window with a golf club? It’s unclear at this point.
