Elin Nordegren Biography
Elin Nordegren formerly Elin Nordegren Woods, is a Swedish model, and the ex-wife of professional golfer Tiger Woods. She started modeling in 2000, and appeared on the cover of Cafe Sport magazine in the summer of 2000.
Elin Nordegren Age
Nordegren was born on 1st January 1980 in Stockholm, Sweden. She is 38 years old as of 2018.
Elin Nordegren Family
She was born Elin Maria Pernilla Nordegren in Stockholm, Sweden. Her parents are Thomas Nordegren, a radio journalist who served as a bureau chief in Washington, D.C and Barbro Holmberg, a politician and the former Swedish migration and asylum policy minister, and the former Governor of Gävleborg Count.
She has an older brother, Axel, and a twin sister, Josefin. Elin and her twin sister worked odd summer jobs and as cashiers in supermarkets to finance their studies.

Nordegren met Mia Parnevik, wife of Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik, at a store in Stockholm where she was working at the time, and gave her (Nordegren) a job as a nanny, a job that required her to move full-time to the U.S. Jesper then introduced her to Woods during the 2001 Open Championship.
In November 2003, Woods and Nordegren attended the Presidents Cup tournament in South Africa and became officially engaged when Woods proposed at the luxury Shamwari Game Reserve. They were married in October 2004, by the 19th hole of the Sandy Lane resort in Barbados. Woods rented the entire complex for a week, including three golf courses and 110 rooms, costing almost $2 million.
In 2007, Woods announced the birth of the couple’s daughter, Sam Alexis Woods, a day after finishing second in the U.S. Open. Again on September 2, 2008, Woods announced they were expecting another child in late winter and Nordegren gave birth to a boy, Charlie Axel, in 2009.
However in December 2009, Woods admitted to infidelity which led to their divorce that was finalised in the Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, Florida, on August 23, 2010. Her legal team included her sister, Josefin and several of Josefin’s U.S. colleagues at international law firm McGuireWoods.
Elin Nordegren House
The house has 11 bedrooms and it was placed on the market for $49.5 million in early 2018. She bought the property on which the house sits in 2011 for $12.25 million, and custom built a mansion that was completed in 2014. It was inspired by British West Indies architectural design.
It is in Seminole Landing — a private, gated community in North Palm Beach, Florida. The 25,878 square feet mansion mainly consists of 11 bedrooms, a guest house, 15 full baths and a four-car garage. It also has a fitness center, a catering kitchen a wine cellar, theater and a three-story Swarovski crystal chandelier.

Elin Nordegren Divorce Settlement
What was in the Tiger Woods divorce settlement? Who got what? How much money did Elin Nordegren receive? Who got the kids, the house, the dogs?
Joint Custody of the Kids
The only detail known with certainty about the Tiger Woods divorce settlement is that Tiger and Elin agreed to share custody of their two children. That detail was included in the divorce judgment entered in Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, Fla., on Aug. 23, 2010.
Nordegren was represented during the proceedings by the law firm of McGuireWoods LLP (in whose London office her twin sister Josefin worked); Woods was represented by Sasser, Cestero and Sasser P.A.
That judgment acknowledged that Woods and Nordegren had finalized on July 3, 2010, a “marriage settlement agreement.” Presumably, that agreement is the one that spelled out the specifics of how the couple’s belongings and money were divided. However, that settlement has never become public.
And, therefore, everything else you hear about the Tiger Woods divorce settlement is speculation. Perhaps some of that speculation is spot-on; surely, much of it is baseless.
The Woods-Nordegren Statement on the Divorce
At the time news of the finalizing of the divorce agreement became public, Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren, through their lawyers, issued this statement:
“We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future. While we are no longer married, we are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us. Once we came to the decision that our marriage was at an end, the primary focus of our amicable discussions has been to ensure their future well-being. The weeks and months ahead will not be easy for them as we adjust to a new family situation, which is why our privacy must be a principal concern.”
Details on the Financial Settlement
There were many breathless reports in the months leading up to the divorce that Nordegren would receive from half a billion dollars to $750 million. Those reports were absurd, and while we don’t know for sure the total amount of money Nordegren received as part of the Tiger Woods divorce settlement, we can say with certainty it was much, much less than that.
So how much did Elin get? The most reliable reports indicate that Nordegren received in the neighborhood of $100 million, $110 million, plus monthly child support that reportedly is in the neighborhood of $20,000. Remember: These reports are speculative based on “insiders” and “family friends” and “sources” whose identities are never revealed. But those figures appear to be generally accepted as in the ballpark.
Based on their post-divorce living arrangements, one thing we can say with a bit more confidence is that Nordegren kept their home in Windermere, Fla. (she later sold it and bought a new house in Florida), while Woods kept the Jupiter Island property and home they bought and started renovating in 2007.
We do know, because details of the arrangement were revealed, that Woods used a second mortgage on that Jupiter Island home as a means of paying Nordegren more than $50 million. Woods took out a $54.5 million mortgage on the property in 2010 and named Nordegren as the issuer of the mortgage. That means that Woods made his monthly mortgage payments to Nordegren. Those payments began in 2010 and ended in January 2016. USA Today did the math and that payment schedule means Woods was sending Nordegren a monthly check of around $860,000.
Was Elin Required to Stay Silent About the Divorce?
Early reports, prior to the announcement of the divorce, indicated that part of the Tiger Woods divorce settlement was Elin’s silence – a gag order. But shortly after the finalized divorce was announced, Elin gave an interview to People magazine. She said it would be her only interview, but she did talk, belying any agreement to keep quiet.
What Led to the Woods-Nordegren Divorce?
Bad behavior by Woods, that’s what. Very bad behavior.
Tiger and Elin married on Oct. 5, 2004. Their children were born in 2007 and 2009.
But in late November 2009, Woods crashed his SUV into a neighbor’s tree in the wee hours of the night. The next day, the gossip rag National Enquirer published allegations of an affair by Woods. In the aftermath of the car accident, those affair rumors quickly went mainstream – and quickly, more women came forth to claim affairs with Woods, or were brought forth by other publications digging for dirt.
Apparently, there was plenty of dirt to find on Woods. On Dec. 2, 2009, Woods posted on his Web site an acknowledgement of “transgressions” and “personal sins” and apologized.
In December 2009, into February 2010, Woods spent time at a rehabilitation facility in Mississippi. Although it was never publicly stated by Woods that the counseling he was receiving was for sexual addition, that was the background the rehab facility’s founder, and that was everybody’s assumption.
Woods and Nordegren were also believed to be seeing a marriage counselor in Arizona at points in 2010.
Given Woods’ infidelities and the embarrassment he brought to the family, the marriage wasn’t salvageable. And on Aug. 23, 2010, the Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods divorce became official.

Tiger Woods and Ex-Wife Elin Nordegren ‘Get Along Really Well’ 9 Years After Scandal, Says Source
A lot has happened since Tiger Woods dominated the PGA Tour.
The 42-year-old athlete, once the No. 1 ranked golfer in the world, has struggled in the 2018 Masters‚ but his ranking has been steadily improving over the past year. (He was at No. 1,199 in 2017. As of April 8, he’s now at No. 103.)
As Woods works on his comeback, his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, lives a quiet life in South Florida. Last month, she put her North Palm Beach mansion on the market for $49.5 million to “downsize.”
Nordegren —who shares two kids, daughter Sam, 10, and son Charlie, 9, with Woods — famously purchased a home on the 1.4 acre waterfront parcel back in 2011 for $12.25 million using part of her reported $100 million divorce settlement from Woods and demolished it to build a three-story, custom residence.
Things are decidedly calmer for Woods and Nordegren than they were in 2009, when the golfer became embroiled in a shocking sex scandal as numerous women came forward alleging extramarital affairs. The couple divorced in August 2010.
But a source close to the golfer says that the former couple gets along well now. “They’re friends now,” the insider tells PEOPLE. “Everything that happened in the past is in the past. They both decided to be adults and to do what was best for the kids. So they get along really well.”
“Tiger says really great things about Elin,” the source continues. “He never complains about her, ever. He never says things like, ‘Oh, my ex is being unreasonable.’ On the contrary, he talks about her in glowing terms. They’re closer now than they were when they were married. The kids love them both.”
Nordegren continued her education after the split. She is scheduled to get a master’s degree in psychology next month.
Woods rarely talks about his marital woes, but he gave a candid interview to TIME magazine in 2015, explaining his relationship with Nordegren.
“She’s one of my best friends,” he said. “We’re able to pick up the phone, and we talk to each other all the time. We both know that the most important things in our lives are our kids. I wish I would have known that back then.”
Woods told the magazine that he has come clean with his kids about the events leading to the divorce. “I’ve taken the initiative with the kids, and told them up front, ‘Guys, the reason why we’re not in the same house, why we don’t live under the same roof, Mommy and Daddy, is because Daddy made some mistakes,’ ” he said.
But the Woods source tells PEOPLE that Nordegren, 38, doesn’t hold Woods’ past against him when it comes to co-parenting. “Elin is not someone who uses the kids as a weapon,” the source says. “When Tiger wants to see his children, Elin makes sure that he can. She is a really classy woman.”
In 2014, Nordegren told PEOPLE that things between her and Woods are “really good.”
“I have moved on and I am in a good place,” she said. “My relationship with Tiger is centered around our children and we are doing really good — we really are — and I am so happy that is the case. He is a great father.”
