Once, Elin Nordegren was known as Tiger Woods’ wife and the mother of his children – but his infidelity saw to the end of that. Get to know about Elin and Tiger’s current relationship, as it stands today.
In the days following Tiger Woods’s devastating car crash in Rancho Palos Verdes, just outside of Los Angeles, California, two women helped him make it through the dark time: his girlfriend Erica Herman and Tiger Woods’s ex-wife, Elin Nordegren. Though Woods and Nordegren had called it quits more than a decade before his April 2021 accident, the couple has remained on good terms while co-parenting their two children. In fact, Elin took care of their kids – Sam and Charlie – as Tiger recovered in the hospital and made sure they could see their father once he was well enough to have visitors.
Tiger and Elin’s relationship hasn’t always been this great. He famously cheated on his ex-wife with scores of women, which ultimately caused the death of their marriage. But, like how Tiger hopes to return to the PGA following his crash, his and Nordegren’s relationship made a comeback, to where they consider each other “best friends.” Elin has also moved on since calling it quits for Tiger, so here’s a look back on where her journey began, some of the bumps in the road, and where she’s at today.
Who is Elin Nordegrenen?
Elin Nordegren is the ex-wife of golfer Tiger Woods. She was born in Stockholm, Sweden, and has spent a good portion of her life in the United States. She and the golf legend were married in October 2004, one year after he proposed to her during a trip to South Africa. The couple tied the knot in a lavish, star-studded, multi-million-dollar wedding in Barbados.
