How Tiger Woods’ front tooth was knocked out

Published

on

If you saw photos of Lindsey Vonn’s boyfriend, Tiger Woods from her World Cup triumph in Italy you likely noticed two things.

This fantastic skeleton mask.

And when the mask was removed, a greater horror still

Lindsey Vonn

Here’s the explanation for the missing pearly white, per Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg.

During a crush of photographers at 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 Woods in the mouth.

Adding another layer of intrigue: Deadspin suggests that the tooth that was knocked out was in fact a fake tooth, which Woods had been sporting since the events of Thanksgiving, 2009, which may have cost him the chomper.

    Read the headline, and go straight to the comments. Bigger news would be Tiger making a birdie, finishing a round under par, or finishing a tournament without an injury.

    While I completely agree that ‘Weird things happen to people’, any time TW gets so much as an in-grown hair, he makes sure the cameras are on him and milks it for all it is worth. Tiger has never been an ‘oh by the way, I just got my face pummeled by a camera’ kind of guy. Just sayin’…

    I’m sorry but what is with the “LOL” tag attached to this article? This is a Golf website. Not some trashy gossip rag run by Perez Hilton or TMZ. Lets try and by a little bit more serious.

    What? No pictures of him covered in blood from having the tooth knocked out by a camera man? Good place to be (in the snow fields) when his pants are on fire!

    So a camera knocked out his fake tooth that Elin BEAT out of his lying face? I wonder if Tiger will have a press conference to say the camera man was acting heroically when it happened. HAHA

    Why is he walking around without his “fake tooth” anyway? Regardless of who knocked it out.

      some people have to use pontic teeth, which is a place holder before an implant. Sometimes the bone isnt ready for an implant or the space isnt needed, a lot of celebrities have fake teeth that are are only attached by bonding them to the adj teeth.

    He’s had a fake tooth for over 10 years, how is this “news.” Clearly evidenced by every image of him where one of his front teeth is noticeably whither than the other.

      Your exactly right! Wait… Tiger and Elin are not together anymore? Again, nothing new!

    Thanks MG! We were all hoping someone could share their sentence structure knowledge with us. Man, you’re so smart. Please tell us more.

    “Deadspin suggests that the tooth that was knocked out was in fact a fake tooth, which Woods had been sporting since the events of Thanksgiving, 2009 may have cost him the chomper.”

    First off, this sentence structure is just hot garbage. Secondly the content is way off. Deadspin showed pics going back to ’04 where there was evidence he was wearing the fake tooth, well before the Thanksgiving incident.

      Jan 20, 2015 at 7:55 am

      But what if his intent was to say that the actual year, 2009, was the culprit?

      • MG

        Jan 20, 2015 at 9:06 am

        That would be a perfectly fine claim to make, so long as he provides a source. The problem is he sourced Deadspin as the 2009 date in that sentence. It’s not good when you falsely interpret your source, even if you are a blogger (Don’t tell Jason though, he still mad lol).

Tour Rundown: Morikawa, Lipsky, and Warren claim titles on three world tours

Published

on

After nearly a month of covering a single tournament each week, today feels like a birthday, with three presents to open. The European Tour returned to action for the first time since Qatar, in early March. The Korn Ferry Tour was again in action, this time in a canyon in San Antonio, Texas. And the PGA Tour headed into territory not charted since the 1950s. More on that tease in a moment. As humanity navigates the careful steps required by quarantine, our professional golf tours have done their best to clear a path on how to properly do so. There is stumbling and mild retreat, but in the end, movement forward. Here’s to caution and confidence, as we return to Tour Rundown, this second week of July 2020.

Collin Morikawa claims first PGA Tour medal-play title

Justin Thomas is young. He’s only 27. The thing is, Collin Morikawa is younger. Like a quarter-generation younger. In an era of internet immediacy and social media fame, people identify by these five-year segments of a generation. On Sunday, at the Workday Charity Open, Morikawa earned his second tour title in less than a year, and he did so by staring down the 2017 PGA champion.

In a word, Sunday in Columbus, Ohio, was crazy. Arriving weather dictated threesomes off early, on both front and back nines, for final-round completion. Morikawa was paired with Thomas and Viktor Hovland, on a stage set for drama. Thomas had the lead at the outset, but Morikawa seized it back with two birdies and an eagle in the first five holes. Thomas responded, as in the middle rounds of a prize fight, with a stunning sequence of his own. Birdies at 8 through 11, followed by birdie-eagle at 14 and 15, appeared to pave a path to a 13th tour title for the Kentuckian.

With a flicker, Thomas made bogey at 16 and 18, while a 17th-hole birdie by Morikawa evened the score. Off to extra holes they went. Thomas appeared to have stolen the win with a 50-feet bomb for birdie at th 18th, but Morikawa matched him with a putt for three of his own. They returned to 18 one more, where pars sent them off to the 10th tee. A change of venue, to the 10th hole, brought resolution to the week. Morikawa’s drive found the fairway, while Thomas’ tee ball was stymied behind a wee sapling of a tree trunk. Forced to pitch out, Thomas ultimately missed a 15-feet putt for par. Morikawa took two putts from six feet, and the victory was his. After an initial win in the modified-stableford Barracuda Championship 11 months ago, the young Californian now has a stroke-play title, against one of the best of the tour, on his sleeve.

For the first time since 1957, the PGA Tour will host events on the same course, in consecutive weeks. The Workday Classic steps aside for the Memorial Invitational. Expect faster greens, deeper tees, thicker rough, and angrier hole locations as Jack’s event takes center stage.

David Lipsky steps out of covert operations for San Antonio Challenge win

If you’re one of those Golf Channel stalwarts, the ones who watch early-morning telecasts from the Asian and European tours, you know his name. If not, please allow me to introduce David Lipsky. A graduate of Northwestern University, a Big Ten titleist in college, 2-time champion on both the European and Asian tours, and now, a winner stateside. By reaching 25-under par on Sunday evening, David Lipsky claimed an inaugural Korn Ferry tour title at the (deep breath) TPC-San Antonio Challenge at the Canyons. The native of La Cañada, California, turned in a weekend scorecard of 128 for 36 holes, blazing past the field by four shots.

The majority of the onslaught took place on Saturday. Lipsky had been known, on his overseas tours of golf duty, to post the occasional low round. Following it up was always the difficult part. More on that in a jiff. On day three, Lipsky posted consecutive bogies, at the 13th and 14th holes. No worries. They were sandwiched by a birdie and an eagle. And those were sandwiched by two more birdies on either side. And that was after an outward nine of five-under 31. Lipsky’s matching nines totaled 62, and included 10 birdies and that screaming eagle.

On Sunday, the third-round leader picked up where he left off. He made few mistakes on the day, and expanded his week-long birdie total by seven. As his closest pursuers hiccoughed and stumbled, Canada’s Taylor Pendrith took up the challenge. Pendrith reached the turn on a five-birdie streak, but was unable to maintain the momentum. He reached 21-under par, one clear of Paul Haley II and Paul Barjon in third, and claimed his first runner-up finish on the Korn Ferry tour. Coming on the heels of a tie for third the previous week, Pendrith is one to watch as the Korn Ferry tour moves across property to the Oaks course, for a 2nd consecutive TPC San Antonio event.

Marc Warren edges Schneider by one in Austria

Compared with the above winners (23 and 32) Marc Warren is an old guy. He’s 39, which qualifies for tour-old status. Not as old as Miguel Ángel Jiménez, the 36-hole leader, but certainly trending upward in circles around the tree trunk. No matter, after 72 holes, it was Marc Warren by one shot, for his fourth career win on the European tour. Six years had passed since the Scotsman hoisted the Made In Denmark trophy, and this rep was more than sweet.

Warren sat two shots behind the ageless Spaniard, Jiménez, aftet two rounds. Surprising himself, the PGA Tour Champions regular was out in 133, emboldened by a Friday 65. What went right on day two, moved in the opposite direction on Saturday. Jiménez turned in a 77, dropping out of the top five. Warren seized the opportunity on a difficult day, and took the lead with a two-under 70. On Sunday, the Caledonian struggled with his swing, giving the lead away to runner-up Marcel Schneider, midway through the back nine. Emboldened by years of toil, Warren responded with birdies at 15 and 17 to snatch the lead back. A par at the last was sufficient to close in 13-under par, one clear of Germany’s Schneider. Holland’s Will Besseling turned in the day’s best score (66) to ascend 16 spots on the board, into solo third position.

The tour remains in Austria this week, at the Euram Bank Open. Unlike the US tours, the remainder of the Euro schedule is uncertain. With fortune, previously-scheduled events will make a return to competition in 2021, if not sooner.
