I obviously have no inside knowledge of the Tiger Woods incident. However, it seems a bit fishy that his wife would use a golf club to break the rear widow of his SUV in order to get him out. She would have had to craw through glass shards to get to the front of the vehicle. She would have been better served to break the passanger side window or side rear window instead.
My theory is that they had a dispute and as he was driving off upset she chucked the golf club at the back of the car and broke the window. That startled Tiger and caused him to swerve into the fire hydrant and tree. If he was not going fast enough to deploy the airbags, he may also not have been going fast enough to trigger the automatic door locks. This has now turned into an embarrassing story necessitating a cover-up.
I also find it interesting that Tiger got to choose when he spoke with police. Nice double standard in our society. Do you think the average Joe would have been given 3 days to get his story straight?
Just my two cents.
