I think the wife was upset that he was leaving the house at 2am so she ran after his car and smashed the windows with a golf club, which caused the crash. Then of course she probably felt bad so she pulled him out of the car and called an ambulance. /speculation.

I don't know that I even buy that "pulled him out" bit of the story. She supposedly smashed the back window and dragged him out?

What is she, like an Olympian weight-lifter? How in blazes did she pull her husband from the driver's seat of an SUV and out the back window?

I mean, I've heard of unbelievable fits of adrenaline surges that have allowed a mom to lift a car off their baby or something, but it's not like he was trapped in an upside-down flaming car or anything.

I won't guess at what happened and I'm not one to jump to speculation but there are a lot of details that are odd about this. It doesn't help that Tiger keeps delaying his meeting with the police. There is a lot of smoke and I wonder how long until we find the fire.

Rachel Uchitel in front of her home in New York. The National Enquirer published a story alleging that golfer Tiger Woods, who was involved in a car accident near his home on Friday, had been seeing the New York night club hostess, and that they recently were together in Melbourne, where Woods competed in the Australian Masters. Uchitel denied having an affair with Woods when contacted by the Associated Press.

TMZ has since reported that Woods told a friend his wife went "ghetto" on him after hearing rumours about his alleged affair with Rachel Uchitel.

TMZ claims that Nordegren scratched Tigers face, chased him while he was driving and broke his back window.

Police have tried to question Woods and Nordegren on three occasions and have been turned away each time.

Woods finally broke his silence on Monday saying only that: "This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way."

Rachel Uchitel says that she has met Tiger Woods, but that the two have never been intimate.

I was back in Orlando this weekend and thought it would be fun to make Tiger crash his car. I was wrong.

(never mind. Edited to remove joke that's just not that funny. Not offensive or anything, just a failure. You know how a joke is sometimes super funny in your head, but then you go and type it out and when you see it on your screen you realize that you might be insane to think that was actually funny? Yeah, one of those.)

I think what I found most surprising is that his house is only $2.4m. He does have other properties though.

Legally, he doesn't have to speak to police about it. It's good he has an attorney and that he's asserting his right to privacy.

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.
