Why would Tiger Wood's wife use a golf club when the door wasn't blocked?

There's something strange about the whole Tiger Woods accident, when you read CNN it says:
Police Chief Daniel Saylor said two Windermere police officers were the first to arrive on the scene.

"There was Tiger Woods laying on the ground in front of the vehicle with his wife over him rendering first aid," he told reporters.

"He was in and out of consciousness with lacerations to his upper and lower lip," Saylor said. "He was mumbling but didn't say anything coherent."

Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, told the police she was inside the house when she heard the accident. She said she went outside and used a golf club to break out the rear window of the vehicle, then pulled him from the SUV.

Yet when you look at the pictures here it looks as if the passenger side of the truck is completely accessible...

After thinking this, apparently I'm not alone, I did some searching and TMZ is reporting:

Tiger has yet to be formally interviewed by the Florida Highway Patrol -- that should happen this afternoon. But we're told Tiger had a conversation Friday -- with a non-law enforcement type -- detailing what went down before his Escalade hit a fire hydrant.

We're told he said his wife had confronted him about reports that he was seeing another woman. The argument got heated and, according to our source, she scratched his face up. We're told it was then Woods beat a hasty retreat for his SUV -- but according to our source, Woods says his wife followed behind with a golf club. As Tiger drove away, she struck the vehicle several times with the club.


And a more recent update suggests Tiger's wife has changed her story.

Normally I'd say this was a set up for a golf joke, like when asked why his wife used a golf club,"Next time I'd use a 4 iron, the last time I used the 6 iron and it took out a fireplug and my favorite ornamental tree."

Sorry, without social manners and subject to morbid humor.

To quote the song lyrics, "I love you just the way you are" - and I thought of the same thing so all I could do was laugh.

On to the next jab; when asked about the accident Tiger Woods told reporters, "I'd rather be driving a Titleist".

Is this where I'm supposed to say, "bada bing"?
