Tiger Woods Blames TV Photog for Knocking Out His Tooth

By Mark Joyella 

Tiger Woods really does not like photographers. After years of insisting camera shutters were interfering with his golf shots, now Woods says a videographer knocked out his tooth–with the camera. The golfer’s agent, Mark Steinberg, claims “a media member with a shoulder-mounted video camera pushed and surged toward the stage, turned and hit Tiger Woods in the mouth” and resulted in Woods’ new grill.

But ESPN quotes organizers of the World Cup skiing event in Italy where the “media member” supposedly “pushed and surged” toward the stage as saying it didn’t happen. “I was among those who escorted him from the tent to the snowmobile and there was no such incident,” said Nicola Colli, secretary general of the race organizing committee.
