Golf living legend, the young Tiger Woods’s career may take a dip as his wife Elin moves for divorce

For months they lied to themselves, Tiger to his wife Elin and vice versa. They said they had no problem with in their relationship and had both undergone therapy following the golfer’s admission to marital infidelity. Now, reports have surfaced in several foreign papers that Elin, a Swede, is due to ask Tiger for a divorce. She had previously committed to the relationship, especially after the many ladies of Tiger had surfaced following the accident he had driving out of his home. An ABC News report quoting a source said that “divorce is 100 percent on.” People magazine and Mirror newspaper claim that Woods’ wife is planning to leave him. A source says, “She’s made up her mind. There’s nothing to think about: he’s never going to change.” The Mirror’s report March 29 claims that ‘Elin Nordegren may be seeing celebrity lawyer Sorrell Trope as soon as next week. According to the article, “Elin is believed to be planning to file for divorce in California — where the couple have a home — and not Florida, where they live.” Filing for divorce in California would increase the chances that the couple’s property would be split evenly between the two,’ according to a report on the website Huffingtonpost.com.

Woods who has announced his return to Golfing after a ‘therapy break’ is due to play this April at The Augusta National Golf Club Masters where he is a four – time winner. “The Masters is where I won my first major, and I view this tournament with great respect. After a long and necessary time away from the game, I feel like I’m ready to start my season at Augusta’, in a statement posted on his website tigerwoods.com. “The major championships have always been a special focus in my career and, as a professional, I think Augusta is where I need to be, even though it’s been a while since I last played. “I have undergone almost two months of inpatient therapy, and I am continuing my treatment. Although I’m returning to competition, I still have a lot of work to do in my personal life.

The latest reports of Elin’s resolve may devastate Golf’s leading player and his game, which has been missed sorely by fans. He has also done tremendous damage to his brand, which damage, two University of California, Davis, Economics professors say, cost his clients about $12 billion in stock value since his car accident. Companies like Nike are said to have lost sales from the continued endorsement deals with Woods, the reason some of them pulled the plug. Surprisingly, Elin is looking to sign a deal with Puma, a rival of Nike, hoping to make a kill out of her loyal suffering wife image.

This month would tell if Tiger will be tamed any further. His return is being followed closely by millions of sports enthusiasts around the world and the Augusta Masters is billed to have the largest TV coverage since President Barack Obama’s inauguration. Even in times of adversity the tiger still roars!
