Tiger Woods‘ winning smile has been put on pause after an overzealous photographer accidentally knocked out his front tooth.

On Monday, the 39-year-old golfer slid over to Italy to surprise his boo, Lindsey Vonn, after her record-breaking 63rd World Cup victory in the super-G in Cortina D’Ampezzo.

But, Tiger stole her thunder when all eyes were on his disrupted grill.

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.

Woods’ tooth was knocked out by the incident.

As you can see from the photo above, the tooth Tiger Woods lost was already discolored. He may have had previous issues with the tooth and it just gave up.

I’m sure Tiger will have his grill back on smash in no time.
