Tiger doesn't find himself stuck behind a tree very often.

This. And why would he or even should he? What's he looking at, a seatbelt charge? Damage of public or private property? He can tell the judge he looked down at his phone looked up and there was a tree in front of him. The cuts? Hit his mouth on the steering wheel because the airbag didn't deploy. Thanks for stoppin by, officers, appreciate the concern.

It doesn't help the public perception of the whole thing, though. Stonewalling the police, whether it is legal or not, does not put one in a good light and makes it look like he is hiding something, whether it is true or not.

Stonewalling them on what, though? Unless he or someone called 911 or filed a complaint about suspected domestic assault, it's none of their business - or ours - as to why he was leaving his house at 2:25 a.m. So he had an argument with his wife, and stepped away before it went any further, big deal. Would it be any different if he was stepping out to go get milk? The accident is just that, an accident.

You missed my point.

I agree it is none of our business, and I personally don't care.

But the public perception is far different. By not speaking to the police, even though it is his right, it makes it appear on the surface that he is hiding something that could be damaging to his public persona.

when his wife smashed the back windshield with the golf club, i sure hope she kept her elbow straight, or she's really going to hear it from Tiger.

Tiger has probably the best PR people in the business, and they have probably determined that his statement is the best course of action. His attorney did provide the basic documents for the investigation. He probably agreed to initially talk to police before consulting his agent/PR people /attorney.

Which sounded like the most plausible explanation until his wife ran outside swinging a golf club.

Like Phanan said, he kind of has to deal with this with the police, otherwise people will believe the rumors before anything else.

I'm gonna go way out on a limb here and just guess that if she had in fact hit him in the face with a golf club, he'd be pretty smashed up and not getting out of hospital 12 hours later.

People keep saying his injuries aren't consistent with a low speed crash. Um, that's a freakin tree, it doesn't move. Look at the pictures of the SUV. It would definitely cause cuts and bruises to the face if he kissed the steering wheel. Hit a tree at even 15 mph without a seatbelt on and you're getting hurt. Personal experience.

This is noone's business. He left during a heated argument and had an accident. Happens all the time. What is a bit weird is the rear window being smashed. Unless the door locks failed which seems unlikely given that the headlights are still on in some of the pictures, why didn't she just open the door and yank him out? I guess that's the biggest "reason to investigate". Even still, what's the worst it could be? She took a swipe at the back window as he was driving away? Cmon.

This is such a non-event. What's making it an event is the National Enquirer article. The only perception I'm getting is a man sticking up for his wife who may have gotten a little heated, there's nothing damaging to his persona about that, imo.

I never said she hit him in the face with a golf club. I'm saying if she's chasing a car with a club to smash in the window, it's not unreasonable to think that she was in the state of mind to have roughed up his face. You know, as a part of the reason why he was even leaving in the car in the first place. And it's not unreasonable to think that might be the kind of thing that might distract a man making a living out of hand-eye coordination to possibly, I don't know, drive his car into a tree next to his own driveway.

Cops Pursue Warrant in Woods Case

Posted Nov 30th 2009 12:45AM by TMZ Staff

Sources tell TMZ the Florida Highway Patrol is now focusing on obtaining a search warrant -- allowing them to seize medical records from the hospital that treated Tiger Woods -- in an attempt to determine if the wounds Woods sustained are consistent with a car accident or domestic violence.

We're told authorities believe they can show probable cause a crime was committed, a necessary step in obtaining a warrant.

One big piece of evidence showing probable cause ... sources tell us Tiger's wife, Elin Nordegren told FHP troopers she went looking for Tiger in a golf cart, came upon the accident and then used a golf club to break the window to gain entry. That's a very different story from what she first told Windemere cops shortly after the accident -- she never mentioned a golf cart. Nordegren told Windemere police she had walked out of her house, saw the crash, went back inside to get a golf club and returned to the vehicle.

Hey, I fully believe she was acting crazy. I realize you didn't mean that she hit him with the club, I was just kiddin there.

But, I think he's not talking because he cares about her and won't do anything / provide any information that would add to any case they are already building against her. He doesn't want social services taking a look at whether or not she's a fit mother, he doesn't want her facing charges that she hit him. He likely knows her better than anyone, thinks she just had a blow up and wants to try and salvage his marriage with as little outside interference as possible. I do realize that the police can pursue on the probable cause even if he doesn't file a complaint, but that will only go so far as getting her charged. They'll still need him in court, and if he's smart he won't play along.

And I don't really see anything wrong with that, personally.

Doctors that examined Tiger Woods have gone on record, saying that his wife "sliced".

I agree with Gvox. Why is this even a police matter? Because he's famous? If it were you or me the cops probably wouldn't even be called and it certainly wouldn't be a news story. So whatever caused the wreck (fight with wife, etc.) it was contained to his own property and no other people or vehicles were involved so what is there to answer to the police for? If the fire hydrant is damaged he can surely afford to fix it. This is, really, no one else's business but his and his wife's.

Well a bit of perspective..someone called 911, so the police show up. If I'm not mistaken also, the hydrant was on public property and the tree on someone else's. So the accident in and of itself is a police matter, and he'll likely face a wreckless driving charge, which will get withheld because he's always driven safely before (ie always yelled "fore" ). Maybe a failure to wear seat belt also. Maybe $200-400 in fines? A defensive driving seminar?

The real problem is the police are behaving so irresponsibly in this. 911 tapes do not get released for minor traffic incidents and they acknowledged this, but said that they released it due to media pressure for information. In other words, the media concocted a story about it all and now the police are being pressured to investigate that angle.

Because really, if you or I were laying on the pavement with our wife over us rendering first aid after crashing into a tree, the last thing any sane cop would think is that she had just beaten you up, even if she was a bit inconsistent in the exact retelling of what happened. He'd think you got up close and personal with the steering wheel/dash. Mind you, we'd probably have to blow into a tube, also
