As the PGA Tour AT&T National 2010 kicks-off, rumors of Tiger Woods’ divorce finalizing spread. Pro golfer Tiger Woods has admitted that the his divorce with soon-to-be ex-wife Elin Nordegren has been a distraction on the greens.
“Outside the ropes there are certainly still distractions,” Woods said to the Associated Press on Wednesday upon kick-off of the AT&T National.
“I think my life out on tour is becoming more normalised,” Woods commented. “Talking to you guys [the media] about why I haven’t won a tournament this year or why I hit this shot or that shot,” he said. Adding, “It certainly wasn’t like that at the beginning of the year but now that certainly has changed, and for the good.”
Elin Nordegren is reportedly asking for $750 million and full custody of their kids in the divorce settlement.
A source for The Herald Sun says the $750 million is the cost of Elin’s silence, which Tiger Woods will want.
“The price of the huge sum is her silence,” a pal says to The Herald Sun. “No interviews, tell-all books, or TV appearances about this for the rest of her life – even if Tiger dies first – or she’ll lose the lot.” The source also added: “Everything’s signed. Elin is ready to file for divorce at Orlando County Court. She expects to in the next seven days.”
