Tiger and Elin Officially Divorced
By Stephanie Wei under Tiger Woods

We all knew it was coming. Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren confirmed on Monday that their marriage is over. The two appeared in front of a judge at Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, FL. The terms of the divorce weren’t disclosed, except that Tiger and Elin will share parenting of their two children, Sam and Charlie.

Here’s the statement issued on TigerWoods.com:

We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future. While we are no longer married, we are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us. Once we came to the decision that our marriage was at an end, the primary focus of our amicable discussions has been to ensure their future well-being. The weeks and months ahead will not be easy for them as we adjust to a new family situation, which is why our privacy must be a principal concern.

In other words, it’s none of our business.

And need a good divorce lawyer? The information of their counsel was also released on Tiger’s website:

Ms. Nordegren was represented by McGuireWoods attorneys Richard Cullen and Dennis I. Belcher in Richmond, Scott S. Cairns in Jacksonville and Walter H. White, Jr., and Josefin Lonnborg in London, assisted by Rebecca Palmer of Lowndes, Drosdick, Doster, Kantor & Reed, P.A. Thomas J. Sasser of the West Palm Beach, Florida firm of Sasser, Cestero and Sasser P.A., and Peter T. Mott of the Southport, Connecticut firm of Brody Wilkinson, P.C., Mr. Woods’ long time general counsel, represented Mr. Woods.

Tiger will play in The Barclays this week, but he’s not scheduled for a press conference. Instead, he’ll speak to reporters in the “quick quotes” area after the Wednesday pro-am. I’m sure it’ll be — well, quick. I’ll be there for what I expect will be an awkward, tense exchange.
