This forum is a bit high brow.

Tigers been caught with his pants down, lets face facts, of course its none of anyones business except just about everybody's .

This is great for the sport, it adds a new dimension to it all, plus next time we're all in the 19th hole trying to pull the barmaid, we just take inspiration in thats what Tiger probably does, we follow just about everything else he does, lets not break with tradition .

Whatever happened to being honest?

Seriously - watch the youtube video. Even if you can be completely, 100% honest when talking to the police (you can't) - it can result in an incorrect conviction. You were just in an accident - there is absolutely no way you can recall the facts w/ 100% clarity - you just can't. If you "be honest" and give your version, there is a high likelihood of the police finding evidence to the contrary. Not because you're lying to them, but because you made a mistake (or because their other witness or evidence is mistaken). Now the judge/jury will see you as a liar and you might be convicted or punished just from that - even if your account of the events are the actual truth.

Your lawyer can present any statement you want to make to the police and it can't be used against you. It costs you and the system nothing to wait a few days before that happens (if it happens at all).

Please drive down to the Louisville police department and turn yourself in for driving over the speed limit. Tell them exactly where you were and how fast you were going. Practice that honesty every day. Do the same for rolled red lights on right turns, lane changes without signaling, etc. Make a big list, swear out an affidavit on yourself, and turn it in to the police.

Disagree, and again, enough speculating. You don't know what happened or didn't happen so to suggest what may or may not be "best" for him is speculating.

My dad isn't a lawyer and I never said he was (state trooper). When I said he PROBABLY would be better off talking, it was based off of what I said in an earlier post. That I have been around the law, seen and experienced things w/ the law. I simply said it would PROBABLY be in his best interest to tell his version of what happened.

Yeah, technically you can call that speculation, but where have I ever said what Tiger SHOULD DEFINITELY DO? Your right, I don't know what happened. However, obviously his lawyer agrees w/ that because Tiger WILL talk. (Multiple reports on that) Lastly, I think you underestimate a judge's power. Yes, a judge can subpeona someone to tell the truth in a court room if it's necessary. Does it happen often? No, but it can. Remember the Barry Bonds steroids scandal? I believe a couple of reporters ended up sitting in jail for a good chunk of time for refusing to give their sources for that story/scandal involing illegal steroids. Obviously I'm not correlating that story to Tiger's minor traffic accident, but I'm simply making a point of what a judge can do.

The point is her man appears to be stepping out on her. She can either step up her game, or continue wearing sweats and playing the "dowdy mother" card.

Dunno what you're implying, PP, because the story makes perfect sense to me. Sounds like a very typical case of a concerned wife doing everything possible to save her husband's life, so he's in perfect condition when she beats him to death with a golf club.

There is a difference compelling a person to testify about someone else vs. forcing someone to testify to incriminate themselves. It's an important difference, you should check it out the Bill of Rights where it talks about self-incrimination, and another thing called the "spousal testimonial privilege."

As for your notion that Tiger would have been better off talking to the police, all evidence is to the contrary.

It never happens, and no, it can't be done. Period, end of story - you're wrong.

The only two people involved: a) have the fifth amendment to protect themselves from self-incrimination b) are married, and thus, are protected from speaking against their spouse.

That's not self incrimination. Duh.

Judges can now violate the Constitution and the Bill of Rights? Nah, haven't seen that one happen yet.

D'oh, you beat me to it.

Yep. Your dad the state trooper probably loves it when people talk. It makes his job a lot easier.

They need to say something soon. He is a public figure, and in the world of PR if you don't fill the void it will be filled for you, and probably stick, even if it's not remotely close to the truth.

To me this is not a police matter at all really, it's a PR issue for Tiger the public figure.

Bottom line is Tiger is under no obligation to say anything to the police. IMO they have delayed with police until today at the request of either their lawyer or agent so as to responsibly represent themselves from a PR perspective, along with satisfying the authorities. But I agree with the poster above, this is a PR issue for the most part. If this were John and Sally down the street, they wouldn't even need to see one officer due to their rights.

Saw this on golfwrx. pretty funny..

Hot off the presses – the 911 transcripts –

LYNN STEPOLIST: Can you send someone to (removed) Tiger Woods is being attacked and has crashed his truck
DISPATCHER: slow down miss, what has happened
LYNN STEPOLIST: I think Tiger Woods is being attacked

(The dispatcher puts out call for any patrol car to respond to the address at removed. A short time later, Lynn Stepolist put back on the phone.)

DISPATCHER: Mam we are dispatching police, is the attacker still there?
LYNN STEPOLIST: Yes and he's crazy. Yelling something.
DISPATCHER: Does he have a weapon?
LYNN STEPOLIST: Yes some kind of metal bar
DISPATCHER: Are the police there yet?
LYNN STEPOLIST: No. He’s smashing the car widows now, my god I think he got Tiger now.
DISPATCHER: Mamm stay in your home, the police will be there soon
LYNN STEPOLIST: That (is) Tiger's wife the blonde one
DISPATCHER: Is she being attacked too?

LYNN STEPOLIST: No, she is the one attacking him

LYNN STEPOLIST: She is yelling something about no Majors in 2009 – Yang, Yang Yang

(muffled yells in the background)


DISPATCHER: Yang?


DISPATCHER SUPERVISOR: My god Lynn get out there and help.


LYNN STEPOLIST: What?


DISPATCHER SPERVISOR: He’s only four majors away....

I like Tiger, I think he has a good sense of humor.

I hope everything is ok on the homefront for him, divorce with kids (especially young kids) is really tough.

A 2:30 am episiode usually involves some problems. Again, hope it works out for him and his family, and it is none of our business. He didn't hurt anyone else so to me it's no harm, no foul.

its actually looking like domestic abuse because even though he had scratches on his lips there was no blood on the steering wheel. what probally happened was he tried to hightail it out of there but not before his wife smashed in the back window.

Statement from Tiger's website:

As you all know, I had a single-car accident earlier this week, and sustained some injuries. I have some cuts, bruising and right now I'm pretty sore. This situation is my fault, and it's obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I'm human and I'm not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn't happen again. This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way. Although I understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible. The only person responsible for the accident is me. My wife, Elin, acted courageously when she saw I was hurt and in trouble. She was the first person to help me. Any other assertion is absolutely false. This incident has been stressful and very difficult for Elin, our family and me. I appreciate all the concern and well wishes that we have received. But, I would also ask for some understanding that my family and I deserve some privacy no matter how intrusive some people can be.

Kinda what you'd expect, I guess.

911 tapes were from the neighbor, and were inaudible in large sections due to a bad connection.

So no OnStar, and no Elin calling in, and no Tiger calling in.

It could be something as simple as Tiger was texting Elin to ask what kind of formula the kid needed and smacked into the hydrant and tree. Or he swerved to avoid a crocodile.

And that's why speculating is a waste of time. I could make up stuff that's just as believable as any of the stupid stuff anyone else has written. And I'm just as likely to be wrong.

    • My hats off. Putting stats like that on any of them PH greens is fantastic. Well done!
    • A young story and an old story!  Yesterday I played Pinehurst #6. A foursome was scheduled but only two of us showed up. I knew one person and the other was a father and daughter. Well only the daughter showed and off we went.  So.  I was 50 years older than her, she is 17 and a very good golfer. She’s off to Norte Dame on a golf scholarship next year after she completes high school. She’s a +2 HDCP. So off we go, she’s playing a hybrid set of tees I’m playing White tees. She hits it straight and decently long for her age.  We are both even thru 3 holes until I make a double on the 4th hole. By the time we finish the front I’m 2 over and she’s 1 over. Back nine I had 1 birdie, 2 bogey’s and the rest were pars for a 75. She shoots 34 on the back with 3 birdies, two were back to back.  A71 for her.  She will be playing in the Woman’s  North South here next week and the Junior as well.  She has no desire to become a Pro Golfer, she is going to Medical School to become an Anesthesiologist.  Impressive I thought! Todays old story…played with two old guys, one is 85 but plays ok and the other was 79. I’m the young guy at 67.  What a comedy!  I could tell immediately they play a lot together as the ribbing never stopped.  I quickly learned to stay alert as their shots started going everywhere!  Then the 85 year old guy gets the shanks! Never seen it so bad and I’ve had them a few times but never like this. The other guy played a very military game with shots left, right, left and so one. The on the 9th hole the 79 year old left a club on the previous hole and left to get it. Then the 85 year old checks his bag and the lost club is in it. Off he goes to get the other guy. They return eventually as the 1st guy went two holes back searching for his club. I’m in the fairway on the 10th hole waiting and here they come.  So then the 79 year old turns his cart steering wheel tightly to turn around and somehow gets the tow hook caught over the right front wheel axle rod so now the cart can only go in a circle!  It took about 15 minutes to figure that out! We fixed it using one of his irons to pull the tow hook loose! What next I thought.  We finally finished. The good news there was we finished in 2hrs 40min! Happy 4th!
    • Some work on losing the right elbow angle sooner.  At any speed right now, this feels more like I am casting the club than losing the right elbow angle. So, more work on getting what the good feel of this is.
