Ya the national enquirer i think published something on Wednesday.

Being reported he was driving one of these you would want to be hit by a cruise missle to get hurt in one of these.

not necessarily - if you were driving at 30 mph and not wearing a seat belt and the air bags didn't deploy you could do some serious damage if you managed to hit your head the wrong way off the windscreen/dashboard

Worrying. "Serious injuries" in media code usually means potentially very serious. Normally one merely uses "injured". "Serious injuries" in media code is often an indication that someone has been very seriously injured but how serious isn't known yet. It is also used where the injury is potentially life-threatening but cannot be announced until family members have been alerted. The wording of the press statements in the US press immediately struck me as on the stronger scale of language used, and that sets off alarm bells. It may mean merely broken bones, a head injury or something worse.

WESH-TV sources say Tiger Woods has been treated for facial lacerations after car crash, says alcohol was not involved.

Tiger's temper hasn't been too good recently ... here he is flinging his driver on the tee box on the 13th on Sat 14 Nov 09 during the Australian Masters .... it's a wonder he didn't injure one of the Spectators ...

The fact that they made a point of ruling it out, almost leads one to believe that alcohol certainly was involved.

Interesting and not nice if that is the case. It depends on how severe they are and what is the longterm damage done (physical and psychological). It also raises questions of whether more head damage was done than just the lacerations. That mightn't be immediately apparent.

No it doesn't. It simply means some journalist asked was there alcohol involved and they said no.

could've been drugs

Panic over no one dying to tonight, Health Central hospital tells BNO News that Tiger Woods has been released from hospital, his manager tells CNBC he is "fine."

There were a few articles yesterday in the US rags about the possibility that he was being unfaithful.
A few years ago I heard that he has a bad bladder problem and needs to visit public toilets quite a lot. But that could be gossip. Mind you, what else can you do with gossip but spread it around. Bit like money and manure

Tiger Woods on drugs. Now there's an image I'll cherish:p

Maybe he was on slow (as opposed to speed)!

I know right?

His image is so squeaky clean (or was) - had no idea about all these rumours swirling about.

Yeah - maybe the time is ripe for the Mr Perfect Tiger backlash.

First Thierry, now Tiger. Gillette must be worried....

coming thru what boards, if you have'nt seen it where /why did you post this
He is a notorious troll. No one believes a single thing he says. He probably made it up.
