Tiger Woods pulls out of charity tournament

Meanwhile, alleged mistress denies affair

Tiger Woods has pulled out of the Chevron World Challenge, a year-end golf tournament he usually hosts to raise funds for his charity, The Tiger Woods Foundation. Citing undisclosed injuries, Woods revealed on his website he is “very sorry that I can’t be there.” Woods recently sustained cuts and bruises from a car crash outside his home in a gated community near Orlando, Fla. He was released from hospital shortly after the accident, but has not been seen in public since. Meanwhile, investigators are reportedly trying to figure out just how Woods sustained the injuries, with rumours swirling they may have been caused by Woods’s wife, Elin Nordegren, over allegations he was having an affair. In an interview with the New York Post, Tiger’s rumoured mistress, nightclub hostess Rachel Uchitel, flatly denied the allegation. “It’s the most ridiculous story,” she said. “It’s like they are asking me to comment if there are aliens on Earth.”
