Elin Nordegren on Saturday graduated atop her class after a nine-year college career — and then educated her audience with some rare, albeit veiled — comments about her ex, the world’s greatest golfer.
It was a display of rare public candor from the former Swedish model, who graduated with a 3.96 GPA from Rollins College’s Hamilton Holt School in Winter Park, Fla.
In her commencement address, she told her 300 classmates that night school offered her a “place of peace in the wild storm of my personal life.”
Her divorce from Tiger Woods, ironically, “was right after I had taken communication and the media,” said Nordegren, 34, who earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology.
“I probably should have taken more notes in that class,” she added, to laughs.
Through his many infidelities, Nordegren had remained on the fence about divorcing Woods — until she famously chased him out of the house with a golf club in 2010 after learning of his 15th mistress.
