5. Speculation ran rampant, with Deadspin claiming Woods has actually had a fake tooth for years.

Woods’ agent later explained to the Associated Press that the golfer’s tooth was knocked out by a cameraman.

“During a crush of photographers as the awards podium at the World Cup event in Italy, a media member with a shoulder-mounted video camera pushed and surged toward the stage, turned and hit Tiger Woods in the mouth,” Mark Steinberg said in an email. “Woods’ tooth was knocked out by the incident.”

6. No word on how long Woods will remain toothless, but luckily, Vonn doesn’t seem to mind.
