Elin Nordegren, formerly Woods, was born on January 1, 1980, in Sweden and is the ex-wife of professional golfer Tiger Woods.

Early life

Elin Maria Pernilla Nordegren was born in the Swedish capital of Stockholm. Her mother, former Swedish migration and asylum policy minister Barbro Holmberg is also the former Governor of Gävleborg County. Thomas Nordegren, her father, is a radio journalist who has worked as bureau chief in Washington, D.C.

Nordegren has an older brother named Axel and a twin sister named Josefin. Nordegren and her sister worked as cashiers in supermarkets during the summer to help finance their studies. She began modelling in 2000 and was featured on the cover of Cafe Sport magazine in the summer of that year.

Nordegren graduated with honours from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida, in May 2014, with a degree in psychology.

Personal life

Nordegren got a job at Champagne, a Stockholm clothing store, where she met Mia Parnevik, the wife of Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik, who hired Nordegren as their children’s nanny. Her job required her to relocate to the United States full-time. During the 2001 Open Championship, he introduced her to Tiger Woods.

Woods had asked to be introduced to Nordegren, who was seeing someone else at the time, the previous year. “She wasn’t interested in Tiger, and he was fine with that,” Mia Parnevik explained. “There was a long line of single golfers who wanted to meet her.” They were completely smitten by her.

Nordegren aspired to be a child psychologist at the time. In November 2003, Woods and Nordegren attended the Presidents Cup tournament in South Africa, where Woods proposed at the opulent Shamwari Game Reserve.

They married on the 19th hole of the Sandy Lane resort in Barbados in October 2004. Woods paid nearly $2 million to rent the entire complex for a week, which included three golf courses and 110 rooms.

Nude photos purporting to be of Nordegren began circulating on the Internet, only to be discovered to be forgeries. Despite the debunking, the nude photographs were published in the Irish magazine The Dubliner in 2006, claiming to be of Nordegren.

Nordegren sued The Dubliner for libel on November 16, 2006. Nordegren was awarded €125,000, and The Dubliner was forced to issue a lengthy apology in a variety of venues.

A day after finishing second in the US Open, Woods announced the birth of the couple’s daughter, Sam Alexis. Woods announced on September 2, 2008, that they were expecting another child in the late winter. In 2009, Nordegren gave birth to a son, Charlie Axel.

Divorce

Her marriage to Woods was the subject of extensive media coverage in December 2009, after Woods admitted to infidelity, which was revealed following his single-vehicle accident near the family’s Florida home.

“I’m kind of filled with sorrow for Elin because me and my wife are at fault for hooking her up with him, and we probably thought he was a better guy than he is,” Jesper Parnevik was quoted as saying after Woods’ infidelity was revealed. Woods announced an “indefinite break” from golf to work on his marriage.

These efforts, however, were futile, as Nordegren and Woods finalised their divorce on August 23, 2010, in the Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, Florida. Nordegren’s legal team included her sister, Josefin (who is licenced to practise law in both England and Sweden), as well as several of Josefin’s McGuireWoods colleagues in the United States.

Nordegren bought a $12 million Florida mansion built in the 1920s with the $100 million she received from her divorce from Woods. She had the entire structure demolished after an architect advised her that it was better to start over than to attempt to bring the home up to current hurricane safety codes.

Before demolishing the house in December 2011, she allowed Habitat for Humanity to come in and salvage anything of value for four weeks. The estate’s contents, which included a 12-foot (3.7 m) fountain with water spouting from three lions’ mouths, five refrigerators, temperature-controlled wine coolers, and other furniture, were auctioned off at a Habitat for Humanity warehouse.

Nordegren was also involved with coal magnate and philanthropist Chris Cline. Nordegren announced in June 2019 that she was expecting her third child, her first with former NFL player Jordan Cameron. Nordegren gave birth to a son in October 2019.
