Tiger Woods Swedish Girlfriend
Introduction: Tiger Woods Swedish Girlfriend is now his wife. Her full name is Elin Maria Pernilla Nordegren Woods. She was born 1st January 1980 in Stockholm, Sweden. She was brought up in the coastal area of Waxholm (src: http://www.ayushveda.com). She is a former Swedish model (part-time?). She started her modelling career as a teenager and studied psychology at university in Berlin, Germany. Elin Nordegren has been described as a “fitness enthusiast”.

She has a twin sister, Josefin, and an older brother, Axel. Her parents are Thomas who is (or was) a radio journalist and Barbro Holmberg a politician and a minister of the Swedish government. Good Swedish stock, then!
How they met: Both Tiger Woods Swedish Girlfriend to be and her sister were working for Jasper Parnevik, a well known Swedish golfer, who was runner up to Nick Price in the (British) Open Championship of 1994 at Turnberry. In 2001 at the British Open Championships held at Royal Lytham & St. Annes (won by David Duval), Jasper introduced her to Tiger Woods. Tiger Woods finished outside the top ten at this championship. He was not swinging well he said. Update: early Dec. 2009 – Jasper says he regrets introducing Tiger to Elin. She could have married a better man. He said she should use a driver rather than a 3 iron the next time in reference to the golf club she was waving around at the accident site.
When they became engaged: November 2003, some 2 and one half years after meeting Tiger Woods became engaged to his then Swedish girlfriend at the luxury Shamwari Game Reserve while playing in the Presidents Cup tournament in South Africa.
When they got married: On October 5th 2004 Tiger Woods marries his Swedish Girlfriend by the 19th hole at the exclusive Sandy Lane resort in Barbados. Tiger booked the entire hotel. It is known to be a very expensive hotel.
Update: Early December 2009: Tiger Woods crashes his car into a hydrant and tree outside his $2.5m (temporary?) house in the Isleworth Community, Florida. Subsequently it transpires he has had an affair or two or three…Is divorce on the cards? There is a pre-nuptual agreement, apparently. She may get up to $300m if she divorces.

|November 2009||It is alleged that her husband has had multiple affairs even while Elin in pregnant etc. and throughout the marriage. Allegations of prescription drug taking problems and alcohol issues surround Woods too.|
|Early December 2009||Elin moves out of matrimonial home to live in a house owned by Woods (and or Elin) nearby on the same estate (Windemere, Isleworth, Orlando, Florida, USA). This is the next stage after having had an alleged furious row with Tiger after heaeing about his alleged affair with Ms Uchitel.|
|Early December 2009||Stories emerge from Swedish media that Elin has purchased, in late Nov. 2009, a house in her home country, Sweden, with her sister. It is an island home in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden.|
|12th December 2009||It appears to have been decided that Tiger will take an indefinite period away from golf and spend the time with his family to try and rebuild it. A long stint on his yacht, Privacy seems to be on the cards. Tiger will miss the Ryder Cup and it seems the Masters and lots more.|
|16th December 2009||Stories emerging that Elin is packing her bags and leaving the matrimonial home in Isleworth with the kids. She is allegedly divorcing Tiger or it looks that way as she is seeing a divorce lawyer, Sorrell Trope. £169million has been mentioned as a max. divorce settlement! There was talk earlier of her staying with him. Now she doesn’t wear the wedding ring.|
Newspaper Scandal: After the Woods/ Nordegren relationship became known a scandal broke out about his then girlfriend allegedly posing nude. An Irish paper, The Dubliner recklessly or maliciously published photographs of a person looking like Elin Nordegren but it was not her. Woods sued and won. Tiger Woods speaks little Swedish. I guess that never presented a problem as Swedish people frequently speak good English and judging by Elin Nordegren’s parents she almost certainly had a decent education and learnt English.
Elin Woods being very attractive has been described as possibly the hottest Mom (Mum). This could be true. She is certainly right up there in the first division with Angelina Jolie (Brad Pitt’s wife and mother) and women such as Reese Witherspoon (Hollywood actress) and Katie Holmes (marries to Tom Cruise).
Tiger on his then girlfriend:
“It’s pretty exciting to find a person who complements you so well. She’s just like me: very competitive with a little bit of a temper.” -Tiger Woods, on Elin Nordegren.

Mr and Mrs Tiger Woods apparently spent their wedding night on a $57 million (or is it $20m) yacht called Privacy.
They currently live in Florida in the Isleworth community, Windermere, Orlando — see Tiger Woods House. He is (or was) building a super house on Jupiter Island, Florida. The great Arnold Palmer lives in the Orlando area.
