Best details yet, courtesy of the Orlando Sentinel:
Authorities have yet to speak to the 33-year-old golf pro about the accident, but a source familiar with the crash scene told the Orlando Sentinel that Woods was not wearing shoes when wife Elin Nordegren Woods pulled him out of his Cadillac Escalade following the accident.
The source also said one of the first responders, a Windermere police officer, gave Woods a firm “knuckle rub” to his sternum in an effort to arouse him from unconsciousness. The rub helped bring the golfer to consciousness.
This was presumably after Elin gave Tiger the firm “knuckle rub” to the cranium that started the whole thing.
Here’s hoping we can add “knuckle rub” to “Kobe Special” as catch-phrases we’ll carry away from this story when all is said and done.
Woods will also be billed $600 for damage to the fire hydrant, the Sentinel notes.
Meanwhile, Woods himself says he won’t play in this weekend’s Chevron World Challenge, which he was supposed to host.
“I am extremely disappointed that I will not be at my tournament this week,” Woods said. “I am certain it will be an outstanding event and I’m very sorry that I can’t be there.”
