Nine months after slamming his Cadillac into a fire hydrant that led to a series of scandalous revelations on his infidelities, Tiger Woods has finalized a divorce settlement with Elin Nordegren. They were married for close to six years.
The former couple will continue to share parental responsibilities for the children, three-year-old Sam Alexis and 19-month-old Charlie Axel. Terms of the settlement were undisclosed but the estimated value that Elin is set to receive is pegged at nine-digits. In return, Elin has signed on a non-disclosure agreement so as not to further damage Woods’ reputation and marketability as an endorser. This seems not a bad deal since Elin gets to benefit from Woods’ endorsements as well.
Now that their divorce is official, PGA world number one Tiger Woods can focus on getting back to the game where he was feared most. Woods has not won any majors since the scandal on his extramarital affairs broke out. A Tiger Woods comeback by way of another major title may be good for the game and good for the sporting world as a whole.
