Tiger Woods Withdraws From His Own Tournament

Michael Santo's picture

Consider it the golf equivalent of a no-host bar. Tiger Woods has withdrawn from his own tournament, the Chevron World Challenge, due to the injuries he suffered in a car accident early Friday morning.

While not said, based on the recent stories of police seeking warrants to examine Tiger Woods' medical records, it could be said by some that Tiger Woods (might) be withdrawing because of injuries suffered at the hands of his wife, over an alleged Tiger Woods mistress. Of course, that's all still conjecture.

Tiger Woods was scheduled to hold a press conference Tuesday for the tournament, which he hosts annually for a small, invitation-only, field. He said, in a statement, "I am extremely disappointed that I will not be at my tournament this week. I am certain it will be an outstanding event and I'm very sorry that I can't be there." However, by missing ht tourney, Tiger also misses the press conference, and thus any questions about Rachel Uchitel pictures.

While this would be an efficient way to dodge reporters, both Tiger Woods and wife Elin Nordegren have been excellent at dodging Florida troopers. They have managed to avoid them, so far, three days in a row.

Still at issue is what exactly happened at 2:25 AM Friday morning. While initial reports indicated that both Woods and his wife said they had argued before the crash, which involved Woods hitting a fire hydrant and a tree with his 2009 Cadillac Escalade, questions still swirl. They include:

Was the argument about the alleged affair with Rachel Uchitel?
Did Nordegren follow Woods with a golf club, hitting the car with it, as some have theorized, or did she hear the accident, and return with the club to rescue him? Why have they refused to answer questions? Why did the Woods camp wait over 12 hours to make a statement about the accident?

Many analysts have said that unless the question is about golf, Tiger Woods and his wife have no reason to answer any queries. While that may be true, celebrities live in a glass house, and it will be hard to sell that to his fans and the public.
