    ORLANDO, FLA.(AP) —Tiger Woods was seriously injured in a car accident early Friday when his car struck a tree near his mansion in a gated waterfront community, authorities said.
    The Florida Highway Patrol said Woods, 33, hit the hydrant and a tree after pulling out of his driveway in his 2009 Cadillac sports utility vehicle.

    The patrol reported his injuries as serious, and that he was taken to Health Central Hospital. His condition was not immediately known. A supervisor in the emergency room said Friday afternoon that Woods was not a patient there.
    The report said alcohol was not involved, though the accident remains under investigation. No one else was in the car, patrol spokeswoman Kim Montes said.
    Woods, who has won 82 times around the world and 14 majors, returned to his $2.4 million home in the exclusive Isleworth subdivision near Orlando earlier this week after attending the Stanford-Cal football game, where he tossed the coin at the start of the game and was inducted into Stanford’s sports Hall of Fame at halftime.
    He had traveled to China and Australia earlier in the month, winning the Australian Masters on Nov. 15.
    Woods was to host his tournament, the Chevron World Challenge, on Monday at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
    He won six times this year after missing eight months recovering from reconstructive surgery on his left knee. Even though he failed to win a major, Woods said he considered this a successful year because he did not know how his knee would respond.

    Golfer Woods in good condition after minor crash-office

    MIAMI, Nov 27 (Reuters) - The world’s number one golfer, Tiger Woods, was treated in hospital and released in good condition after suffering injuries in a car accident in Florida on Friday, his office said.
    In a statement read by CNN, the golfer’s office said he had left hospital after being in a “minor” car crash.

    “He was admitted, treated and released today in good condition,” it said in a statement. (Reporting by John O’Callaghan, Editing by Frances Kerry)

    Hit a hydrant and a tree after pulling out of the driveway? Nah ... couldn't be alcohol related. I do that everyday.

    Alcohol was not a factor according to the police, reported on NPR.

    That policeman was last seen on TW's private jet taking off for a vacation in TW's 2nd home. ;)

    The accident also occurred in a private gated community. I doubt anything will come out of the investigation.

    Sad to hear. Read this earlier today. I'm a big fan of Tiger and my Dad has had the chance to meet him several times. He is an incredible man who works extremely hard. Hope he gets well soon.

    Apparently he was trying to get away from his wife, they had a discussion and his wife scratched his face, he left and his wife started chasing him with a golf club (same one she then used to get tiger out of the truck), apparently she hit the truck a few times while chasing him, so Im guessing Tiger took off in a hurry and lost control.

    I guess that is what happens when your famous and your significant other believes the National Inquirer produces honest journalism.

    ^^^ Ayup, that's the scoop from the Enquirer - Tiger's been having an affair with a NY socialite and his wife was giving him a beat down when he hauled ass out the driveway.

    Really? Who knows, who cares? I'm still a fan.
