Lucas Glover, who missed the last three cuts, was simply happy that he wasn’t driving home on Friday evening. He shot a bogey-free three-under 69 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship to stay in contention going into Sunday. The Clemson grad drew attention to himself at the beginning of the season when he showed up for the new year sporting a heavy beard. Which makes him look more like a mountain man and nearly unrecognizable from the clean-cut pro golfer who hoisted the ’09 US Open trophy at Bethpage Black.
“Did you hear? Tiger Woods is a single man again,” a friend messaged me over IM. I received more of the same from at least four others. Yeah, yeah, big shock. We all knew it was coming, and seriously, thank God that Elin Nordegren (who wants her maiden name back) decided to divorce his cheating butt.
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.
