As Tiger Woods tees off today to defend his 2019 Masters victory, he’ll also be defending himself in court.
The all-time great and his caddie were sued earlier this year by a fan who was “unnecessarily” and “harmfully” shoved by Woods’ caddie who was making sure Woods had enough room to play his next shot. The fan’s lawyer says he suffered “pain and suffering,” “disability,” “disfigurement,” “mental anguish,” and a half dozen other conditions as a result.
But the video of the incident, which you can watch below in a video published earlier this year by ILR’s Faces of Lawsuit Abuse campaign, suggests he may have been clipped by the club had the caddie not moved him back. Watch the video and see for yourself.
The color of the leaves lining Augusta National’s fairways may look different this year, but one thing remains the same: trial lawyers are still looking to make a quick buck.
