Pat Burns: Tiger Woods Lost Teeth After Wife Hit Him With Golf Club

Read that title again for just a minute. What would former Bruins coach Pat Burns know about the Tiger Woods saga? Apparently, he knows the entire story.

While appearing for his daily interview with CKAC Sports radio in Montreal on Tuesday, Burns, a former Quebec police officer, was told by police acquaintances in Florida that Elin Nordegren hit her husband, Tiger Woods, in the face with a golf club after reading text messages on Tiger’s cell phone from one of his mistresses. The swing left Woods with a deep gash in his cheek and two missing front teeth. Woods then tried to leave the house via his SUV, but his wife  chased after him and swung at his car, smashing his rear windshield and causing him to crash.

Burns said that Tiger was not immediately available to police following the accident because he was in Phoenix, Arizona getting emergency dental and plastic surgery to fix his injuries. Elin, meanwhile, has been enjoying her time away from Tiger, including a stay in Europe for her recent birthday. Neither Woods or his wife has commented publicly about the incident.

From the Canadian Press:

But the unsubstantiated story of the missing teeth and golf club has made the rounds on the Internet, including in a blog by a longtime Atlanta Journal-Constitution columnist, who cited another reporter close to Woods.

So, Burns could be recalling the Internet rumors instead of information from his police sources in Florida, but it’s still extremely interesting. We finally have a public story from someone who may know about the situation. Eventually, the entire story will be known, but not before Tiger loses over $100 million in divorce fees, endorsements, and lost wages (while he’s not playing golf). Still, he’s probably the richest athlete in sports.

  1. LOL “Still he has lots of money” as if that matters. So as long as he has money its all ok!

    Get your head on straight.

  2. The money and fame is the reason he was able to carry on the life of Hugh Heffner, and it will allow him to survive the gigantic loss in endorsements and divorce fees.

    I didn’t say having the money will make things ok! I was just saying he was worth over $1 billion, and the financial hit will be huge, but not enough to bankrupt him. Read it word-for-word again:

    Bob, get your eyes checked. Zing!
