Tiger Woods, 43 won himself a fifth green jacket at The Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Georgia this year. The four-day tournament ran from April 11 to April 14 and Tiger wowed fans with an epic comeback. He embraced both his children Sam and Charlie, on celebrating his win. But many may have wondered where their mother, Tiger’s if his first wife, Elin Nordegren, 39 was.
But their relationship broke down after dozens of women came forward claiming they had affairs with the star golfer during his marriage to Elin.
Tiger Woods has since admitted he was unfaithful to his wife and in 2010 gave a televised interview where he said: “I thought I could get away with whatever I wanted to.”
He then added: “I was wrong. I was foolish.”
But despite their past and the media storm that engulfed their marriage following the affair allegations in 2009, Tiger and Elin are now reported to be on good terms.
Will Tiger Woods and his first wife ever get back together?
A lot has happened in the nine years since Tiger Woods and Elin separated
Woods is now looking to further his comeback and win his first Masters since 2005.
Meanwhile, Elin has reportedly made peace with the cheating scandal that destroyed their marriage and shocked the world.
The former nanny lives a quiet life in South Florida where she bought a multimillion dollar mansion in 2011.
She was reportedly given $100 million in the divorce settlement with Tiger.
While it seems Elin and Tiger live fairly separated lives, they share two kids together and Elin has previously described Tiger as “a great dad”.
A source close to the golfer has said the pair have put their difficult break-up behind them.
They told PEOPLE magazine: “They’re friends now.
“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 continued.
“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.”
The source suggested that the pair are now closer than ever.
They said: “They’re closer now than they were when they were married. The kids love them both.”
In a candid interview with Time magazine in 2015, Tiger described Elin as his “best friend.”
He said: “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.”
Tiger told the magazine that he has come clean with his kids about the events leading to the divorce.
He said: “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’.”
While Tiger and Erin have not made a public statement about their relationship it’s clear they are still close and are both dedicated parents.
