It took less than twenty-four hours for the curious circumstances surrounding golfer Tiger Woods’ bizarre auto accident in Florida to take a sadly predictable turn.
Let’s recap, shall we?
First, there was a middle-of-the-night, single-car crash just outside of Woods’ driveway – a crash that occurred with Woods driving alone at low speeds, with alcohol reportedly not a factor.
Hmmm. Next, a local sheriff volunteered to reporters that Woods’ wife Elin Nordegren assisted her husband by smashing in the back of the SUV with a golf club.
Of course before we bestow upon Elin her very own Wonder Woman belt, we’re omitting one key bit of info … the fact that the incident took place just as Woods’ rumored affair with this woman became tabloid fodder.
As our favorite investigative journalist Irwin M. Fletcher once said, it “doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes” to figure out what really went down.
“Larry Holmes could have put that together …”
From the gossip site TMZ.com …
We’re told … (Nordegren) had confronted (Woods) 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.
Wow! Somebody get that girl an LPGA card!
Well … except for the fact she likes men.
Anyway, if true, this development is a very a sad situation for the Woods’ family, which seemed so happy earlier this year.
Now it looks like they’re headed for an extended stay in tabloid hell.
For his part, Woods will make formal statements regarding the crash – which is still under investigation – to the Florida Highway Patrol on Saturday afternoon.
UPDATE – Neither Woods nor his wife talked to the FHP Saturday, it turns out. The cops were told to come back Sunday.
