    You’re saying it’s reattachment surgery, aren’t you?

      Captain James Powers of LA county sheriffs department says jaws of life not used, that Tiger may have been conscious when removed from vehicle and that, when asked, the injuries may not be life threatening, but he is not a medical expert

      Now some guy from the sheriff's dept is saying it is not true that they had to used the jaws of life. The initial report said he was "extricated" from the car, and somebody who saw it made that assumption. Also said Tiger's injuries do not appear to be life threatening. But again, as Fuchsed up as his back already was, I highly doubt we'll see him on the links again anytime soon.

      Wow, so I'm watching this on Fox News, they still have a helicopter over the crash site...and a sheriff's deputy pulls up in a marked police SUV, gets out and goes over to Tiger's SUV, "extricates" Tiger's green and black GOLF BAG full of clubs, slings it over his shoulder like he's strolling down the back 9 and calmly puts the clubs in the back of his cop car. Then returns to Tiger's car, apparently to look for more swag...this is a developing story lol...

      Apparently Tiger spent the day yesterday hanging out with David Spade and my boy D Wade. Sort of an unlikely trio IMO

      Odds are the deputy called in and took the rest of the day off.

      Gets 9 in and then just happens to stop by the police precinct on the way home to leave the evidence that was "sitting in his trunk all afternoon".;)

        Actually my second thought. Does that make me a bad person?

          A sheriffs department source has told Fox News that Tiger was alone, conscious and able to talk to deputies when they arrived. He also said that, quote, "there does not appear to be anything 'salacious' about this accident."

          Nothing salacious! Now that's when you know you've had a fun, full life. You get in a car wreck and the cops feel the need to publicly clarify that there was, "nothing salacious" about it, and that they're releasing that information, "to quell speculation." :lol2:

            This is the post that convinces me that GC needs to give us the ability to rate a post "like" and "funny" at the same time. Ox?

              It's be hilarious, and great, if after Fox spends the whole entire afternoon on nonstop coverage of this story...Tiger comes limping out of the hospital with a sprained ankle, and that's it.

              The stripper actually wanted to be a news woman, so being right at the scene was a perfect break for her.

              And while I get the concern about the Perkins waitress, honestly, with the financial hit of Covid dine-in restrictions, I’m sure they’ll get her shift covered, no problem.

                Now we're watching a wrecker with a boom crane hauling the SUV out of the bushes.

                That Fox News helicopter must've taken off with a full tank of gas.

                    I saw the news. The car looks really effed up. I've never been a Tiger fan but I don't wish death or injury upon him so I hope he makes a full recovery.

                    As to what happened, my guess is he's back to his old ways of chasing girls but also self medicating his emotional pain away with pills/Ambiens/booze/etc. I think he's fundamentally an unhappy, socially awkward person who never really learned how to be a normal person...and all the money in the world won't cure those problems. Growing up being in the spotlight from age 4 can mess a person up if they don't learn how to deal with the fame & fortune. My guess is that Tiger still struggles with this.

                      Even when you're high on pills and drunk on champagne? Me personally, I prefer a driver in those situations.
