Report: Elin close to filing for divorce

Tiger Woods' marriage to Elin Nordegren is over, with reports in the U.S. that the golfing superstar and his estranged wife are making the finishing touches to their divorce, The (Sydney) Daily Telegraph reported Wednesday.

Just days after Woods completed his triumphant return to golf following his cheating scandal, U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight reports Nordegren, who failed to show at his Masters comeback, is close to filing for divorce.

Correspondent Kevin Frazier, who has links to Woods, said: "For weeks now there have been rumors that Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren might reconcile and save their marriage.

"It was believed by going to sex rehab that Tiger had done just enough to keep his family together. But sources have told me that the marriage is indeed over.

"Evidence? Well, the fact that Elin was on a plane, in the air, headed to Arizona during the final round of the Masters.

"Usually, with her husband in contention at his biggest tournament, she would be there waiting for him in case he won; instead she made a plan so that she would be in the air while Tiger was playing.

"The couple hasn't spoken for quite some time and it is believed that all they have to do is work out a few more details on their divorce and they can sign the divorce decree and both can move on with their lives."

Elin's continued anger at her husband's infidelity was also evident when Woods rented out a separate mansion for her and their children, complete with servants, at the Masters in Augusta.

The marriage was all but over last November when club hostess Rachel Uchitel became the first of four alleged mistresses to come forward with claims they had sex with Woods during his marriage.

The four women are former porn star Joslyn James, who claims she was his mistress for three years; former Playboy model Loredana Joli, swimsuit model Cori Rist and Uchitel.

Since then a host of other women have also come out alleging they had affairs with the world's top golfer.
