Rachel Uchitel-Tiger Woods Affair: Happy Three-Year Anniversary!

by at .

Who can ever forget Thanksgiving 2009.

On November 25 three years ago, The National Enquirer reported that Tiger Woods was having a secret, torrid affair with NYC nightclub manager Rachel Uchitel.

Then, around 2:30 am on November 27, Woods peeled out of his home in his Cadillac SUV and crashed into a fire hydrant, a tree, and some hedges on his street.

He was treated for minor injuries and ticketed for careless driving. In a statement, he called it a "private matter" and credited his wife for helping him out of the car.

Soon, we would learn that Woods' then-wife, Elin Nordegren, had found out the Enquirer report was true just moments earlier, and chased him with a golf club.

You can't make this stuff up.

Uchitel, who had also been linked to Bones' David Boreanaz that same year, was Tiger's #1 mistress, but over a dozen more came out of the woodwork.

Cocktail waitresses, porn actresses, random girls, you name it. None could hold a candle to Rachel Uchitel, but all held plenty of Tiger Woods at one point.

Tiger Woods eventually came clean about his affairs, and after a brief sabbatical from the sport he dominated, returned to pro golf in the spring of 2009.

He went to rehab for sex addiction as well as couples' therapy, but it's hard to save a marriage after betrayal on that scale. Also hard to salvage? His mojo.

Though he had a terrific 2012, he has yet to win a major championship since the crash.

Uchitel got married and had a baby (not Tiger's), while the former Elin Nordegren Woods became one of the hottest and richest divorcees on the planet.

There are many more sordid details - trust us, we covered them all at length - but the rest, as they say, is history. A history full of sexting Joslyn James.
