*A new account of the night Tiger Woods crashed his car has been detailed in an article from Furman Bisher, described by the New York Daily News as one of America’s most respected sports journalists.
Bisher, citing information from “a trustworthy colleague of Tiger’s agent, Mark Steinberg,” said on his blog that Tiger’s wife Elin smashed his cheek bone with a nine iron golf club, almost knocking out his two front teeth.
Bisher – described as the country’s top golf writer – also claimed the injuries are the real reason Tiger, 33, has not been seen in public since his mysterious car smash early on Nov. 27.
According to Bisher, Tiger spent Thanksgiving Day exchanging texts with his mistress Rachel Uchitel, 34. He then went out to play poker with friends but left his mobile phone behind – and Elin read one of the messages. Tiger returned at midnight and there was a “heated discussion.”
Bisher wrote: “Tiger sat in a chair in the living room. …Elin sat across from him, urging Tiger to just come clean. Tiger stayed to his guns and denied everything. At one point Tiger turned away to look at the TV and, as he turned back, Elin hit him on the right side of the face with the head of a nine iron.
“She put a huge gash in the right side of his face next to his nose, causing his nose to bruise some, virtually knocking two of his upper teeth out and breaking the bone on the upper right side.
“Tiger ran scared as hell out of the house, with Elin swinging the golf club, through the hallway to the garage.”
The blog said that as Tiger tried to drive off, Elin smashed the car windows. He hit a tree outside their home in Orlando, Florida.
Bisher said the golfer took a private jet to Phoenix, Arizona, to see a plastic surgeon and cosmetic dentist for “intense” reconstructive procedures. Allegedly, that was why he failed to meet Florida Highway Patrol cops on three occasions to discuss the crash.
Tiger has previously denied Elin used violence. On Tuesday, Tiger’s agent Mark Steinberg told UK newspaper The Sun Bisher’s claims were “patently false.”
