“Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has released the cause of the February wreck where Tiger Woods suffered extensive injury: excessive speed of 82-87 mph in a 45-mph zone.”

.....Tiger does get points though for not backing off when things get tough.....

“law enforcement said that data recordings from the car show that Woods did not brake prior to the accident but did press on the accelerator at a "99 percent" rate.”

I wonder if there's some other incident he didn't pull out of...

Maybe correcting for lift-off oversteer?

There's a saying in racing... If you don't know whether to slow down or speed up, then speed up.

Tiger obviously knows how to race!

Probably should have pushed the control wheel on that airplane down instead of pegging the gas pedal to the floor.

I gotta hand it to Buick Hyundai though, that car held up great for such a high speed crash landing...

That's the new Genesis SUV. Tiger hasn't been with Buick since GM had to be bailed out by the Government.

I don’t think so. Aim for a bridge abutment or something. Not a median and a tree line.

I’m betting he has no idea what that means. Nor how to correct for it.
I’m guessing he was going too damned fast for the road and, got “confused” as to which pedal to press on.

Duly noted and I edited my original post. Thank you for pointing that out.

Just judging by his choice of cars, when Tiger isn't getting high as **** and he tries to keep the wheels actually on the ground, he appears to be a smart man.

I actually thought at the time, when they described how upset he was when he went speeding off from where ever the heck he was (I forget now where that was, but there were witnesses there who described it) that it was nothing more then his anger control issues. He was angry, drove like a pi$$ed off person and wasn't thinking . . . just my two cents . . .

I remember, early on, that he was late for some kind of appointment. Media didn’t mention that this morning.

That happened to a young woman not far from where I live. They believe it was suicide because it occurred at a toll booth and they estimated her impact speed at 100 mph. It is scenarios like that I'm glad I never became an EMS/first responder.
