TIGER Woods‘ wife Elin Nordgren battered him with a golf club — leaving the star needing reconstructive surgery, it has been claimed.
According to Furman Bisher – one of America’s most respected sports journalists — Elin smashed Tiger’s cheek bone and his two front teeth were almost knocked out.
Bisher also claimed the injuries are the real reason Tiger, 33, has not been seen in public since his mysterious car smash early on November 27.
Bisher says Woods spent Thanksgiving exchanging texts with mistress Rachel Uchitel.
He then went out to play poker with friends but left his mobile phone behind — and Elin read one of the messages.
“Tiger sat in a chair in the living room,” Bisher wrote on his blog.
“Elin sat across from him, urging Tiger to just come clean. Tiger stayed to his guns and denied everything.
“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 nine iron.
“She put a huge gash in the right side of his face next to his nose, causing his nose to bruise some, 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, with Elin swinging the golf club, through the hallway to the garage.”
Bisher said the golfer took a private jet to Phoenix, Arizona, to see a plastic surgeon and cosmetic dentist for “intense” reconstructive procedures.
Meanwhile, it has been claimed that Woods — who is said to have cheated on Elin with more than 10 different women — has checked into rehab.
Tiger is said to have entered a private, upscale rehabilitation facility in Arizona.
“He has been there for a few days since his handlers forced him to enter the program,” a source said.
“They feel that if he blames his cheating on addiction, the public will forgive him.
“Tiger wants to get back on top.
“He agreed to put golfing on hold so he could show the world how badly he feels about what he’s done and to prove that he wants to correct the problems that led to his infidelity.”
