They wish “each other the very best for the future” but that future won’t be spent together as Tiger Woods and Swedish wife Elin Nordegren officially divorced today.
The marriage was formally dissolved in a Florida court today but they shall be sharing joint custody of their two children.
The world became privy to the golfer’s private world as news of a string of infidelities surfaced as a result of his car crash on November 27th, 2009.
Once news broke of Woods’ failings as a husband he made a carefully-staged televised apology, albeit a very wooden one. Although he had been involved in a number of extra-marital affairs with various women, including a porn actress and cocktail waitress, it appeared as though his wife had stood by her man.
We are glad to see that, in fact, Elin Nordegren has proved she has some self-respect by dumping this clearly selfish, thoughtless man.
Since his post therapy return to professional golf he has not won a single tournament. Well, what goes around comes around…
