Tiger Woods' seemingly idyllic family life and high-flying golf career both came crashing down in a single night on Thanksgiving weekend in 2009.

The 14-time major champion had crashed his SUV outside his Florida home after a bitter fight with his wife, Swedish model Elin Nordegren, over his infidelity.

Elin had reportedly smashed the windows of the SUV with a golf club. The incident brought scrutiny of Woods’ private life and a lurid tale emerged.

Over the next several months, as many as a 14 women were identified as having relationships with him.

His wife filed for divorce after six years of marriage and he became a late night TV punchline on The Tonight Show and Saturday Night Live.
