Tiger Woods showed up in Italy today to surprise his girlfriend Lindsey Vonn on the occasion of her record-setting World Cup performance. And while Woods sported a skull facemask for a fair portion of his time on the slopes, closeups revealed that Woods is apparently missing a tooth.
Why is this shocking? Are you sure it’s just not being replaced for the moment. Wasn’t this from Elin’s beatdown?
Woods was a victim of an overly aggressive media corps. Here, we’ll let his agent Mark Steinberg explain:
“During a crush of photographers as the awards podium at the World Cup event in Italy, a media member with a shoulder-mounted video camera pushed and surged toward the stage, turned and hit Tiger Woods in the mouth,” Steinberg said in a statement to the AP. “Woods’ tooth was knocked out by the incident.”
yes! But this was the tooth Elin knocked out right?
Woods is scheduled to tee it up at next week’s Waste Management Open in Phoenix.
