Tiger Woods was all smiles Tuesday — and with a full set of teeth.

Woods gave a play-by-play of getting his front tooth knocked out when he was in Italy to celebrate girlfriend Lindsey Vonn breaking the World Cup ski record. He says he was wearing his skeleton-patterned mask to try to blend in and was standing behind photographers at one of two podium presentations. Woods says a videographer stood up and banged into his mouth.

He says the mask covered the blood and he was in pain.

Woods says one tooth was chipped and the other was knocked out. He says they were permanent teeth — not caps — and he had them replaced.

A race official says he was not aware of the incident and nothing was reported.
