In addition, the two are planning to file in Elin's native Sweden in an effort to keep the details a secret from the public, reports The New York Post.

According to, the couple is very interested in "keeping the terms of the divorce confidential."

Woods has hired West Palm Beach lawyer Thomas Sasser to help him split from Elin.

Nordegren is the one who's "pulling the plug on the marriage," according to

"There is no arguing any more," one source close to the situation said.

"They don't fight. There is a coldness between them and it's Elin who is pulling the plug on the marriage."

"Tiger's return to golf made her unhappy. That's when she grew cold toward him," according to the source.

    Elin is being simple. She met Tiger when he was a golfer. That is where he makes his money. Asking for one to quit from where you get your bread is unfair. Divorce and move on, good riddance

  • golf fan - 2010-05-12 10:40

    Ridiculous!!!! If it were not for golf, Tiger would be a nobody, and she wouldnt have given him a second look. Now that "golf" has made her a wealthy woman, she has a problem with him playing. I'm glad he chose to play, maybe thats his way of choosing between her and the game thats made him what he is...a legend!!!

    i would have done it in the begin if i would not give a 2nd change.

    some people do not appreciate you as you are sometimes.Elin is mad or carzy,because today she is a housewife depending on Tigers bread that he put on the table with his golf but shes refusing him to go back to what he love & enjoy as his career.they are rich because of his golf. life goes on Tiger look for someone who will appreciate what you put on the table by not being a obstacle to your career.

  • Jo - 2010-05-12 11:05

    Surely family is more important than money, guess he chose his family when he decided to back to the game....

  • nic - 2010-05-12 11:09

    Don do you really think that 1) elin asked him to quit 2) tiger plays for money 3) the divorce is as a result of golf and money, and not adultery? Simple.

  • Cecile - 2010-05-12 11:20

    Don't get all excited about what the source said! I bet the source is a friend of Tiger. She grew cold because he slept with dozens of women and now they are trying to get simpathy for poor old Tiger. Pathetic! Pull the plug, Elin, and kick his ass!!!

  • wow - 2010-05-12 11:26

    After all she was going to divorce Tiger it was just the matter of time.Ellin your plans didnt work...making a men to retire.....clean his bank account.....and divorse him.Give a men a space.....surely he cant having you around...being at home most of the time after the scandal made him realise who you realy are.Go get yourself another millionare.

  • BT - 2010-05-12 11:29

    I agree with golf fan and Don. All good and well now that he has made $1bn from golf, and she is wealthy beyond her wildest dreams, to try and stop him from playing golf. Just as selfish as he was in having all the affairs, she is now being as selfish. I think a divorce is good for both of them. I don't care how many women Tiger sleeps with, as long as he gets back to playing great golf. He is a rare talent, and has lifted the game to new levels.

  • Tommo - 2010-05-12 11:29

    Tiger is an ass and deserves what he gets.Obviously the man has no backbone or morals to go and break his marriage vows. He might think of it differently if the shoe was on the other foot.

  • MS - 2010-05-12 11:31

    Focus people...Surely the core reason she's leaving him is fuelled by his infedelity, and not because he plays golf, but the travel and socialising that goes along with it...he kind of crapped on his own stoep don't you think? I'll eat my Titleist hat if she can trust him unconditionally again...

  • Tiger fan - 2010-05-12 11:32

    Tiger is still a human being worth to live his life fairly like any other human being.Elin is trying to be fun, where would she be if it wasn't that same "golf " she is divorcing him for? As human, he is entitled to making decisions that suits him.............forward Tiger Woods with golf!!!!!!!!! It's for your reason that i love golf............

  • SUSAN - 2010-05-12 11:35

    How can she blame golf for what he did. He could have been doing anything for a living and it would have not made a difference. He wanted to do what he did no matter what and by doing something else is not going to change him as a person

  • Gerald - 2010-05-12 11:36

    Tiger clearly was not getting it at home so he fooled around, he apologised, went to rehab lost half his earnings and received public ridicule. Now try taking golf from him, man is there no way of pleasing this woman.

  • Ntando Madonsela - 2010-05-12 11:37

    now its clear why Tiger was cheating he has unsoppurtive wife with very low self-esteem, just divorce and do what made you, what you enjoy to play Golf i know is a strain but u will survive this Tiger wish you well use those millions to get a good lawyer

  • Colleen - 2010-05-12 11:38

    How can anyone of you judge them at all. He messed up big time. Maybe she wouldnt have given him a second look if he wasnt who he is, but maybe his affairs were due to his being away from her for long periods. I would also be afraid that he would do the same thing again. Its also very difficult to forget the type of things he did. Its admirable that they were trying to sort things out. I know i wouldn't have tried at all.

  • tommy - 2010-05-12 11:58

    All you phsycologists out there trying to take sides and justify.......... he cocked up, he made his choice/s, now she's making hers? Go back to work and add some value !

  • Dee - 2010-05-12 12:07

    To Ntando Madonsela - I fully agree with you. To all the women out there ranting and raving - you all want the money and fame, but are not prepared to walk the walk with your man. Once, you have caught your guy, you sit back and just expect the good life, without attending to the needs of your man. But guess what - men do have physical needs. That is one of the most basic instincts - to spread our seeds. Just listen to all the men who are not getting sex at home, no wonder they start looking elsewhere.....

  • HP - 2010-05-12 12:12

    I hope he gives her bugger-all....

  • JACK - 2010-05-12 12:42


  • j.d - 2010-05-12 12:42

    talk to your wife Tiger convince her to come back, FAMILY first than everything follows. Behind every successful man there is a woman. YOU GUYS MADE A GREAT COUPLE.

  • u5 - 2010-05-12 12:58

    Elin is showing her true colours. Tiger was frustrated at home hence he decided to cheat. If you are not treated well at home, you are abound to cheat.

  • JACK - 2010-05-12 13:03


  • Anti_maleslut - 2010-05-12 13:27

    woods is a slut. simple as that. If he wasn't caught he would still be doing it. i lost all respect for him when he chose golf over his family. And i'm glad his wife did too. He is truly a weak human being and a disgrace to the hand full of decent men. you suck!! i hope your golf game turns to sh#t as well. wake up loser!

  • Lump of coal - 2010-05-12 13:27

    @dee ...... let me get back to you in a thousand years from now when you have (perhaps) evolved from your current state ... @hp .... Tiger will never get custody and Elin ( the woman he chased after when she initially turned him down) will get over a hundred million ...... Tiger can still play the field ????? He does not get to choose how much to pay her !!!!

  • PatcheS - 2010-05-12 13:35

    @JACK - If she milked him, he would never have cheated in the first place.

  • Orion - 2010-05-12 13:36

    "Golf is Tiger Wood's bread and butter"??? Please, the man is a billionaire and does not need to earn any more money. And to those of you saying that "he wasn't getting any at home so he cheated". What a load of nonsense. Were you at the home of Elin and Tiger? Of course not, so stop jumping to conclusions about their bedroom life. Besides, even if he wasn't getting any, that still does not justify sleeping with up to 14 women. What a joke - you clowns are just looking for excuses for his terrible behaviour. If he was serious about his relationship (and this applies for any man who can afford it), then he would have taken time off to work further on his marriage in order to save it. Yet he chose the Masters instead. So if he is clearly not commited to the relationship, then why should Elin stay married to him?

  • Dee @ lump of cold - 2010-05-12 14:17

    Sorry Love, I didn't know you are on the internet today. I'll remember the bread and milk on my way home.....

  • JustinD - 2010-05-12 14:18

    Yes Elin, get rid of that tosser, take a few hundred million and find someone that actaully appreciates you.

  • sanele - 2010-05-13 08:18

    I dont feel sorry for Tiger, why did he marry a white woman in the first place? There are a lot of black women with class that he could have married and I am sure they would have stuck by his side throughout all of this. You reap what you sew. It was all about the money for her, do you think she would have married Tiger if he was just a pen pusher? no bloody way

  • Fanie - 2010-05-13 08:27

    Hell, this was a truly amasing round of golf, i am just sorry he got caught, would have loved to see him on the fairway and getting a "hole in one" on all 18 greens, had to stop at No 14 due to foul wheather, what a pity......Life just sucks.......

  • WTF? - 2010-05-13 08:43

    How the hell is Elin the bad guy in all this? NOTHING will ever justify cheating on your partner...No matter who they are, what they do, how much they earn, what they get or don't get, skin colour (WTF was that?!?!) and all the other pathetic excuses you post here...NOTHING! I hope she takes him for everything he's got and runs off with a golf caddie!!! By the way Dee, I really hope you shoot blanks, 'cuase we don't need any of your ignorant seed spread.

  • Forbes - 2010-05-13 09:50

    Well, now his not a billionaire anymore. LOL

  • garriga! - 2010-05-13 10:48

    Marriage is not golf, it's LIFE! Men are supposed to love their wives, and the wives must respect & honour their HUSBANDS. Cheating on your wife is not loving her, it's abusing her. I don't care whether Tiger is our (Nike's) money-spinner, the real world needs real heroes, as evident in Phil Mickelson winning the US Masters with his family by his side. This is not about money, it's about security. If she feels unsecure, she will walk out, money or no money. So: before you think "golddigger", learn something about marriage and relationships and then you can comment. Geez!

  • PatcheS - 2010-05-13 11:01

    @Orion. Please give Tiger the credit he deserves, it was more than 22, not only 14, sheez! Oh, lets not forget the assault. If I were Tiger, I would have pressed charges against her, and she would have gotten her criminal record she deserves, and lost her children. He might be a cheater, but she is a club wielding violent person. She is no better than the porn stars, he had to pay both for sex. Tiger, get rid of her, move on and stick to hookers and golf, you are good at both, and atleast they dont cost you millions.

  • Jojo - 2010-05-13 11:31

    Tigers r were born hunters she knew wat she was gettin herself into (ATM) to make cashmoney=marriage=devorce=then soon she will hav her own talkshow or write a book so 2cash on the tiger.his not the 1st or last a history of black atletics maryin whitewomen then don hate playa hate de game.keep rockin tiger we b hind u.ol de way PLYA

  • Crouching tiger hidden ho - 2010-05-13 12:35

    Theres a million nordic ice women where Elin came from so just pay and get her out the way...besides who wants to stay at home looking at a Captain Spok look alike anyhow?!!!

  • James - 2010-05-13 18:47

    this is the biggest lot of crap ever written. Tiger's days are gone. he f..k his marrage, he disrespect his fans, he disrespect the sponsors that made him $ bns, he disrespect the media, his father and his family. he is a bigtime loser, he will not recover from this. his body is gone, substance abuse, over trained and sick in the head. every man that desires and admire Tiger for his sexcapades is vlak in the head, they are ruled by their dicks. Erin was the fool to marry him in the first place, so smoke his money. The issue is that Tiger committed to stay in the rehab process untill end June before returning to golf, like the rest of the story, he could not even commit to this. henk haney has now also resigned as his coach, so shame I feel sorry for him. he had everything in life, even for those moegoes whe belief life only consist of sex with porn stars, and he stuffed it up. he will go down in history as a nobody. shame Tiger, maybe he can buy Playboy from Hugh Hefner.

  • JEFF - 2010-05-13 20:35

    what about the poor kids, what impact is this having on them. tiger is still their father and dont look at him like we do. must be terrible on them.this is no more about elin and tiger but the kids as well.

  • Richard - 2010-05-14 14:09

    I am a big Tiger Woods fan, but I also don’t agree with the people slagging off Elin. Tiger Woods made a mistake (or 14 of them), and it would be hard for, even a good loyal woman, to forgive that. Men also don’t cheat because of what’s happening at home – they cheat because they can, want to and have the opportunity to do so, and then rationalize it in the name of culture, what’s going on at home, etc. There is a prenup agreement for a $US100m – she may walk away w/ $US200m or so. If she wants to leave, that is her right, and nobody should blame her. TW is a human w/ personal problems, which he is trying to sort out – divorce happens to 50% of all marriages. As for Tiger Woods being finished from a golfing point of view, James, I’ve saved your name and comment in my draft section of my email, until his next US PGA Tour/Major win. If Tiger’s marriage is over, and golf is now all he has, then his focus the next few years could make him even better because he does not need the money. If Tiger is a has-been after finishing 4th at the Masters, then Ernie, Retief, Trevor are also finished, but Ernie has come back nicely after a dry spell w/ 2 USPGA Tour wins after his personal problems..

  • Anthony - 2010-05-14 22:36

    Guys, guys, guys - Tiger is Tiger because of his golf, not his wife. Get on with the program. I dont blame his wife for wanting to divorce him but why should his career be jeopardised for cheating on his wife???? On the golf course there is no one else but the TIGER.....!!!!!!!!!!
