Cameraman knocks out Tiger Woods’ tooth in Italy

Cameraman 1, Tiger Woods’ tooth 0.

Woods, who is set to play in the WM Phoenix Open next week, had an unlucky encounter with a media member during a trip to Italy.

Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, said the 14-time major champion was in Italy to watch his girlfriend, Olympic gold-medalist Lindsey Vonn, compete in an alpine skiing competition Monday.

“During a crush of photographers at the awards’ podium at the World Cup event in Italy, a media member with a shoulder-mounted video camera pushed and surged towards the stage, turned and hit Tiger Woods in the mouth,” Steinberg said in a statement. “Woods’s tooth was knocked out by the incident.” Woods covered the injury with a scarf after the accident but photos of his new smile eventually emerged.

Woods has a week to get his tooth replaced before heading to Arizona — and with an estimated net worth of $78.1 million, according to The Guardian, he should be able to afford the replacement.
