The news is only just coming through about Tiger Woods‘ car accident, where he backed into a fire hydrant and then ran into a neighbor’s tree. Of course, these things happen every day, but not usually to the world’s best sportsperson. Maybe he should have used a driver (golf drive, get it?). The police were quick to say that alcohol was not involved. So what was it? The initial reports had him in a serious condition, but later being released from hospital being ‘fine’ with minor face lacerations.
As the media do not seem to really know, I am going to say what I think happened. His wife who recently had a baby was awake with a crying baby in the middle of the night, woke Tiger asking him to rush down the street for some more milk. In his half-awake confused condition, he thought he was still in Australia and started driving down the wrong side of the road. He was so focused on his goal, that he failed to notice a fire hydrant and tree in his way. Of course, a more correct version of events will come out in due course.
