Tiger Woods Missing Tooth Was Knocked Out by a Photographer

Tiger Woods made a surprise visit to Italy on Monday to watch girlfriend Lindsey Vonn in a skiing competition and promptly got his front tooth knocked out by a photographer.

Vonn captured her record 63rd World Cup title at the event near Cortina D'Ampezzo, The Associated Press reported, but the photo that generated all the buzz after the awards was Woods' missing his front tooth.



Mark Steinberg, Woods' agent at Excel Sports, explained the missing tooth in an email.

Steinberg said during a crush of photographers at the awards podium, a media member with a shoulder-mounted video surged toward the stage, turned and hit Woods in the mouth. That's what knocked out the tooth.

He did not say when Woods would have it replaced.

Golf's biggest star returns to competition next week in Phoenix, and his smile is sure to produce a stream of shutters from the cameras.

Vonn provisionally won a super-G to break Annemarie Moser-Proell's 35-year-old record of 62 World Cup victories.

For win No. 63, the American clocked 1 minute 27.03 seconds down the Olympia delle Tofane course to finish 0.85 ahead of Anna Fenninger of Austria.

Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein was third, 0.92 back.

Woods was waiting in the finish area.

Vonn exclaimed: "No way!" when she saw him.

"I didn't think this could get any better than yesterday with my entire family here but now with Tiger here this is unbelievable," Vonn said. "I said, 'I can't believe you came.' And he said, 'I told you.'"

It was Vonn's first win in super-G this season and her fourth overall this campaign, showing a return to top form after two knee injuries kept her out of last year's Sochi Olympics.

The win showed Vonn is dominating again just weeks before her home world championships in Vail and Beaver Creek, Colorado.
