ORLANDO, Fla. – The once-pristine image of golf superstar Tiger Woods took more blows Thursday after revelations that neighbors found him lying shoeless and snoring on his Isleworth street after he plowed his SUV into a fire hydrant and tree a week ago.
These details, included in an interview recorded by Florida Highway Patrol troopers of neighbors who rushed to Woods’ aid, emerged as a celebrity gossip publication reported that yet another party girl had trysts with Tiger Woods.
Kalika Moquin, 27, a marketing manager for The Bank nightclub in Las Vegas, “hooked up” with the champion golfer as recently as late October, Life &Style magazine reported.
Tabloid reports blamed the Nov. 27 crash on a quarrel they said Woods, 33, had with his wife Elin Nordegren Woods, 29, after the National Enquirer reported the golfer had an affair with New York nightclub hostess Rachel Uchitel, 34. With Los Angeles cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs, 24, the number of reported mistresses stands at three.
Thursday’s news raised more questions than answers. In the recording, Tiger Woods’ neighbor Jarius Lavar Adams and sister Kimberly Harris had no information on why he came to be in his postcrash state. They told troopers Woods’ family barely spoke with them.
Highway patrol spokeswoman Sgt. Kim Montes said her agency had no comment. Moquin didn’t confirm or deny reports of her encounters with Tiger Woods. A press conference scheduled by Uchitel was canceled by her high-profile attorney Gloria Allred hours before it was to take place.
Orlando’s WFTV Eyewitness News reported Thursday night that the three alleged mistresses could just be the tip of the iceberg. The station reported that two more women – from Central Florida – are talking to lawyers, claiming they too have had affairs with Tiger Woods, one of them up until three weeks ago.
There also are reports by the Chicago Sun-Times that Tiger and Elin Woods are in marriage counseling and are renegotiating their prenuptial agreement to give her more money.
Tiger Woods’ public ordeal began about 2:25 a.m. Nov. 27 when he drove his Cadillac Escalade out of the driveway of his Deacon Circle home. He careened into a row of hedges, drove over a curb and swerved into a fire hydrant and finally into a neighbor’s tree.
By the time authorities arrived, Tiger Woods was on the ground outside the SUV. His wife told them she used a golf club to break open rear windows and free him.
Tiger Woods was taken to a hospital. He was treated and released the same day.
Harris told troopers that Woods’ mother, Kultida, and mother-in-law, Barbro Holmberg, were at the scene, but that could not be confirmed.
