Tiger Woods is now officially divorced, a single dad, and with a golf career that is still undetermined. After a tumultuous nine months of chaos after his exposed extramarital affairs, Tiger Woods is now a divorcee starting his next chapter of life.
The final hearing lasted less than 10 minutes in Florida, and when the doors opened, Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren walked out an officially divorced couple.
In a joint statement released by the former couple, they said, “We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future.”
The divorce was finalized shortly at 2 p.m. in a courthouse 375 miles away from the couple’s home in Isleworth outside Orlando. This is the said home where Woods was spotted driving his SUV over a fire hydrant and right into a tree on the night of Thanksgiving. This was the event that lit the fire exposing numerous shocking revelations that showed the supposed “Family Man,” and golf’s biggest star was actually a cheater who had multiple extramarital affairs.
Since the fire was started, Woods’ life and participation in the game has not been the same.
Woods and his wife were married on October 5, 2004, and have two children: Sam (3 years old) and Charlie (18 months old).
Details about the terms of the divorce were not disclosed, except for the fact that they will be sharing the parental obligations of their children.
