She must have hit him HARD if this is true!
Sportswriter Furman Bisher is claiming that the real reason Tiger Woods hasn't been seen since the infamous car accident is because he underwent reconstructive plastic surgery for his face, specifically a broken cheek bone, after being hit with a 9-iron by his wife Elin Nordegren! Bisher recounts the scene:
"At one point Tiger turned away to look at the TV, and as he turned back, Elin hit him on the right side of the face with the head of a 9-iron. When she struck Tiger, she put a huge gash in the right side of his face next to his nose (causing his nose to bruise some), and virtually knocking two of his upper teeth out, and breaking the bone on the upper right side.
Tiger ran scared as hell out of the house (which is why he had on no shoes) with Elin swinging the golf club throughout the hallway to the garage (i.e. causing the severe damage which has been reported).
Tiger hopped in the Escalade and tried to leave; and as we know Elin knocked out the windows in the Escalade. When Tiger crashed, Elin panicked and was not sure what to tell the police (which is why there are two conflicting stories from her)."
Bisher has said that a trusted journalist colleague, who knows Tiger's agent Mark Steinberg, gave him this information, but nobody has yet to confirm or deny its validity.
He also claims that after Tiger left the hospital, he was then flown to Phoenix for the plastic surgery and cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Steinberg was also apparently involved in the cover-up story AND that while Elin has contacted a divorce attorney she is not planning on divorcing Tiger.
Bisher also states that it will probably be another month or so before Tiger shows his face in public due to the surgery.
We're dying to know how Tiger's camp is going to respond to all of this!
