Tiger Woods' tooth knocked out by cameraman

The last thing Tiger Woods thought he would need when he surprised girlfriend Lindsey Vonn on her historic day was dental work.

Woods, who travelled to Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy to watch Vonn with her landmark 63rd World Cup race, received a surprise himself — this one of the unpleasant nature.

As you can see in the photo above, golf's biggest star is missing a front tooth. As his agent Mark Steinberg explains it, Woods had his tooth knocked out during a crush of photographers at the awards podium after Vonn's victory. A media member with a shoulder-mounted video surged toward the stage, turned and hit Woods in the mouth.

Steinberg also said that the tooth is missing and would not say when Woods would replace it.

Even more bizarre was witnessing Tiger dress in a skeleton disguise as Vonn became the all-time women's record holder in alpine skiing victories.

Of course, Twitter went crazy after news broke of Tiger’s missing pearly white.
