TMZ: FLAT TIRES AND DAMAGE
Tiger Woods’ car was a wreck when cops found him during his DUI arrest — with 2 flat tires, a broken tail light and mangled bumpers … this according to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports.
12:40 pm Update
Rich Lerner was just on MSNBC as a guest. He compared Tiger Woods to Chris Cornell, Prince, and Michael Jackson.
Tiger said it was an unexpected reaction to prescription medications. If that’s what he says, that’s what it was. Why would anyone doubt his word? Certainly Golf Channel has never before doubted anything Woods has said.
TIGER WOODS WAS ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL WHEN APPREHENDED
Here’s hoping Woods loses his ball and club sponsorships. Why? Because then he’ll be free to champion standardized, rolled-back golf equipment. End the corporate money-grab the golf equipment industry has become.
Can someone explain to me why the media seems to be washing their hands of Woods because of — it sure seems like — this mug shot? They haven’t given two craps about his cursing, links to Galea, club-slamming, rudeness, coldness, sex scandal, lying, or deception. I mean, we even had a DUI before in reality; they just covered it up. His wife said he was loaded on drugs when he crashed his SUV into the fire hydrant in 2009. No problemo, said the media. But this mug shot… Buh, bye, Tiger! Is it because words and thoughts are hard, but pictures are easy? That they can’t spin a photo — not even to the LCD types?
I’m reminded of Braden Thornberry, winner of the NCAA tourney. While waiting for last night’s Golf Central, I was mindlessly watching the NCAA tourney. Thornberry came on the screen and hit an iron out of the rough. He smashed it. Pummeled it. Crushed it. Annihilated it. With his stocky build and close-cropped blond hair, I immediately saw young “Fat Jack” Nicklaus. Now, the swings are nothing alike. (Thornberry’s is largely homegrown.) But the way the ball flies off his club, well, you need to see for yourself. And you’ll soon get a chance to. He’s got a sponsor’s exemption into the St. Jude’s next week. Don’t miss it.
Just remembered Morning Drive. This should be interesting.
I keep seeing articles questioning why Woods didn’t “call an Uber.” My response: Uber is like hitchhiking, only you pay. And, unlike taxi drivers, you don’t need a license to drive for Uber. There have been quite a few psychos in the news who drove for Uber. Even with registered cab drivers, there are sometimes psychos and incidents.
So, you are a doped-up billionaire, famous as hell, and you are going to call some Uber psycho — a stranger with no license or background check — at 3:00 am to come pick you up? Uh, no. Maybe a 20-year-old working part time at a store in the mall might, but not a famous, wasted billionaire.
As well, Woods was more than likely out tom-catting and anyone he called would have leaked details faster than a deep state worker at a classified Trump meeting. Gee, I wonder why Woods was visiting the wife of __________ (fill in the blank) at 3 o’clock in the morning?
He could have called one of his “people,” yes, but he would not necessarily have wanted them to know where he was, nor wanted to inconvenience them. It’s logical to think this is not the first time he’s driven in such a state, so one assumes he did it many times before without getting busted.
Anyway, it annoys me how so many articles have “order an Uber” in them, so I wanted to respond. I guess reporters consider it trendy and cool to reference Uber.
