Well, gotta say I expected this from pretty early on, but now we have confirmation. Tiger Woods' facial injuries, and the busted back windshield of his car, didn't come from the accident he was in. They came from his wife.

According to TMZ, Tiger apparently had a conversation Friday -- with a non-law enforcement type -- detailing what went down before his Escalade hit a fire hydrant.

Woods apparently said his wife had confronted him about reports that he was seeing another woman (reportedly with New York socialite Rachel Uchitel). The argument got heated and she scratched his face up. Woods beat a hasty retreat for his SUV and said his wife followed behind with a golf club. As Tiger drove away, she struck the vehicle several times with the club.

What's interesting to me is that no major media outlet would acknowledge the obvious questions about this incident. Why would Woods have facial cuts if his car hit a fire hydrant, then a tree, and he was going well under what it would take to deploy an airbag? And why did his wife smash the back windshield to pull him out of the car when she easily could have opened a side door?

Even though TMZ and blogs some times take abuse for rushing to conclusions, sometimes they beat the pants off of the major news networks that refuse to run a story that makes a celebrity look bad.

So anyway, as it turns out, Woods is more than just the robot he's always appeared to be. Unfortunately, this wasn't quite the kind of confirmation of that I was hoping for.
