Investigators did not suspect that Tiger Woods was under the influence of drugs or alcohol when he was involved in a serious car crash nearly two years ago, but Pat Perez’s wife has apparently drawn her own conclusions.
Woods suffered serious leg injuries in February 2021 when he lost control of his car and drove off the road. He nearly had to have his leg amputated, and he said last week that walking still makes him uncomfortable. Tiger bluntly told reporters after he withdrew from the Hero World Challenge last week that he “is running out of this leg”.
On Monday, the Instagram account @golfballing shared a video showing Woods talking to the media about his limitations. Perez’s wife, Ashley, commented on the post that she had no sympathy for Woods because she believed he was injured in the crash.

“Literally why driving under the influence is illegal,” Ashley Perez wrote. “I don’t feel sorry for him. Thank God he didn’t kill. Goodbye.”
Perez later deleted the comments.
Many wondered if Woods was affected by his DUI history. In May 2017, Tiger was arrested in Florida for DUI. He passed a breathalyzer test and was not intoxicated. However, a later toxicology report revealed that Woods had five substances in his system: two painkillers, a sedative, a sedative, and THC.
Pat Perez is one of several golfers to leave the PGA Tour to join LIV Golf. He has been openly critical of his peers who remain loyal to the PGA Tour. It’s not the first time Mrs. Perez has cast a shadow on other golfers, either.
