LIV Golf rebel Pat Perez's wife takes a vicious shot at Tiger Woods and his horror car crash

LIV Golf rebel Pat Perez’s wife, Ashley, takes a shot at Tiger Woods and the star’s horror car crash in 2021.

The 15-time major champion broke his leg in multiple places in a car accident in February 2021 that almost led to an amputation.

Woods completed a miraculous recovery by making his sensational return to the course at The Masters in April, went on to make cuts at Augusta and the PGA Championship, and took what was likely his final walk on the Old Course at St. Andrews during The Open in July.

However, despite the comeback, the icon struggled to walk at times and withdrew from the Hero World Challenge, an event he pulled out of, last week, citing plantar fasciitis.

An Instagram account called Golf Balling shared a video of Woods describing his limitations and Ashley Perez received the comments with little sympathy.

‘I can hit golf balls. It just hurts to walk,’ Woods said in a clip taken from a pre-tournament press conference.

‘The goal is just to play major championships and maybe one or two more. I mean, that’s all I can do physically … I don’t have much left in this leg, so get ready for the big ones and hopefully lightning will catch in a bottle, and hopefully I’ll be on top of the opportunity win, and I wish I could remember what it was like.’

In the comments, Ashley wrote: ‘Literally why driving under the influence is ILLEGAL,’ she wrote. ‘I don’t hold a grudge against him. Thank god he didn’t kill anyone. See you again.’

The comment has since been deleted, but it has been maintained by Bro Bible and the Nuclr Golf Twitter account.

Woods was not charged with DUI in connection with his car wreck. While investigators discovered an empty pill bottle in his backpack and said he was ‘quite belligerent’ and distraught over the outcome, police said Woods had no bloodshot or watery eyes and did not smell of alcohol.

LA County sheriff Alex Villanueva said Woods had no ‘obvious’ signs of disability, and denied the golf legend received special treatment.

Her husband, professional golfer Perez, previously blasted Woods for his criticism of LIV Golf.

Perez turned his back on the Saudi-backed breakaway earlier this year, while Woods, along with friend Rory McIlroy has been one of the loudest voices against the series, out of loyalty to the PGA Tour.

Woods reportedly turned down the Saudi-backed series’ megabucks, rejecting a $700-$800million deal as he challenged the motives behind players moving away from the traditional circuit.

He said in July: ‘I don’t understand it. What are these players doing for guaranteed money, what is the incentive to practice? What’s the incentive to get out there and earn it in the dirt?

‘You just pay a lot of money up front and play some events and play 54 holes.

‘They play loud music. I understand 54 holes for the Senior Tour. Men are older and a little more bumpy. When you’re young, part of it is the 72-hole test. We have a 36-hole play-off for the majors.

‘I just don’t see how this is positive in the long term. It’s sad to see some of these kids who will never get the chance to walk on these hallowed grounds and play in these majors.’

Perez, who was part of Dustin Johnson’s all-American team to win LIV Golf’s season-ending team championship at Trump National in Miami last month, congratulated compatriot Woods.

‘That’s the dumbest s*** I’ve ever heard in my entire life,’ Perez said on the Son of a Butch podcast.

‘That was one of the stupidest things I think he ever said. The incentive is the fact that the last place is 120,000, the first place is four million. You can’t win four million on the PGA Tour.

‘Now, next year maybe; they finally got the perks. But last time I checked, he signed a $40million deal out of college, was flying on a Nike jet. He found an incentive. He can close it right away.’

Perez signed a four-year deal to join LIV Golf ahead of its event in Portland at the end of June.

Perez is a three-time winner on the PGA Tour, earning more than $28m over the course of his career.

Woods will make his first appearance since The Open in July at The Match this week, where he will join Rory McIlroy against Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.
