my guess is it’s painkillers. They are tough to overcome and he is always in tons of pain. I am glad no one else was hurt.I like Tiger as much as anybody for his remarkable accomplishments and his kinda "desnobing"of golf, but I'm not buying the memory loss here.
We might never know, and I might be wrong, but I am strongly inclined to believe he was doing something he was not supposed to do in that car, aside from driving at 2 or 3 times the speed limit. A car doesn't suddenly decide to jump over the median and roll over a distance of a few hundred feet until it comes to a rest with the wheels up in the air, on its own.
If he WASN'T doing anything wrong, and this is just the result of his driving "skills", then someone in charge needs to consider revoking his DL fast, before this happens again with the addition of an innocent by-stander's death or injury.
Hope I'm proven wrong, but claiming not remembering anything after the first medic on the scene (minutes after the crash) already confirmed that he was conscious and even told him who he was, rules out the "stroke" or passing out" of some sort that could have explained the crash and associated memory loss.
Wishing him a fast recovery.
