You can listen to the Tiger Woods 911 call here. The call was placed at 2:28 AM Friday morning by neighbors of Woods at the Isleworth subdivision where Tiger Woods lives with his wife Elin Nordegren and two children. Police did not release the identity of the caller.
The Tiger Woods 911 caller had been apparently awakened by the noise of Tiger Woods 2009 Cadillac Escalade striking both a fire hydrant and a neighbor's tree. It's unclear if the tree belonged to the caller.
As indicated, you will hear blank areas in the audio due to the censoring of certain personal details of the caller. What you will hear, however, are interesting tidbits of information, such as by the time the Tiger Woods 911 call was placed, Woods was already out of the car and "on the ground," as the caller said.
You'll recall that by the time authorities reached the scene of the accident, Woods was reportedly already on the ground, with wife Elin Nordegren "hovering over him." At this point, authorities have not yet interviewed either Tiger Woods or his wife. At last report, that interview was to take place Sunday.
However, finally breaking his silence on the matter, Tiger Woods posted a statement on his web site on Sunday. It is clear, that Tiger, a very private person, wants to keep this matter private as well.
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.
Rumors are circulating that there was an argument between Woods and his wife prior to the accident. According to various reports, she either took a golf club from the house after hearing the accident, and used it to break out a window in the Escalade, or she had been chasing with the club, which might have caused the accident in and of itself.
Meanwhile, rumors about why this might have happened are also running rampant. The most prominent speculation alleges that Tiger Woods has a mistress named Rachel Uchitel. While National Enquirer reports first said she was freely advertising it to friends, she has publicly denied any such affair since the Tiger Woods car accident.
While the Tiger Woods 911 call gives us details of the accident, it answers few questions. Woods is scheduled to host his Chevron World Challenge this week in Thousand Oaks, CA, which benefits his foundation. A news conference prior to the tournament had previously been scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. It is not clear if Woods will still play, or even attend.
