Tiger Woods’ disappearing act since he crashed his SUV outside his Florida home in November might be partly due to a pair of missing teeth, compliments of a nine-iron to the face by an angry wife, according to former NHL coach Pat Burns.
Burns offered some details of the now-infamous night to a Montreal radio station Tuesday morning, based on what he’s heard from his Florida police friends.
Burns, who has mostly retired from hockey and now lives in Florida, has contacts with the police sector, where he worked before coaching hockey.
In a conversation with CKAC Sports in Montreal on Tuesday morning, Burns said an old friend in the highway patrol was among those who went to Woods’ home on the night of the crash, on Nov. 27.

“It’s unfortunate that he would say that, because there’s a guy I really admire,” Hull told THN.com Wednesday. “I look to him as a Wayne Gretzky type of person that always does the right things and says the right things, not only for his sport but as an ambassador for sport in general.
Woods’ insults seemed particularly baffling to Hull given his previous experience meeting the world’s No. 1 golfer when Hull was still an active player for the Stars.
From the AP via International Herald Tribune:
The world’s top golfer appeared via teleconference on Monday, promoting August’s PGA Championship at Oakland Hills in suburban Detroit. Woods was asked if he was rooting for Detroit or Pittsburgh.
Woods started to laugh, then landed a zinger.
“I don’t really care. Let’s talk about the Dodgers,” the California native said. “I don’t think anybody really watches hockey any more.”
Charming, Tiger. And you don’t want to get me started on my opinion of televised golf—but fortunately, the NHL’s Frank Brown responded with a lot more class than I would have:
“The National Hockey League has enormous respect for Tiger Woods, for all his accomplishments and for his work with the community. We think he’s a great golfer.”
