Break out the champagne and the motherf*%kin’ condoms, and dial up every cocktail waitress you know, ’cause Tiger Woods is officially back on the prowl. Holla!
After months of separation and living separate lives, the marriage between Tiger and Elin Nordegren Woods is officially over. Finalized. Done. They are both single.
The couple signed the papers in Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, Fla., earlier today. As predicted, the details of Tiger Woods’ divorce were not released.
“We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future,” the pair said in a joint statement released by Nordegren’s law firm.
“While we are no longer married, we are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness will always be of paramount importance to both of us.”

FREE AT LAST: Tiger and Elin Woods’ divorce is final.
“The primary focus of our amicable discussions has been to ensure their 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.”
The terms of the settlement was undisclosed, but reports have suggested Elin will get $100 million in assets, along with primary physical custody of the kids.
Sources have previously said that custody was the key issue for both, and that the couple wanted to share custody of their two children, Sam and Charlie.
Whatever the terms are, they have likely changed recently. Sources say that although Elin had signed a prenup, it was renegotiated, and Eiin given wide latitude after the Rachel Uchitel sex scandal derailed Tiger’s life and career last November.
The couple tried to make a go of it in the ensuing month, with Tiger completing a stint in sex addiction rehab. But his return to golf this April, coupled with the sheer volume of mistresses he piled up, were reportedly too much for Elin.
A source close to Elin Woods says she is relieved that the issue is at last resolved: “She’s feeling okay about all this. She’s been through hell but handled herself with such dignity. And now she’s got a whole new life ahead of her.”
As for Tiger? He can’t shoot under par anymore, but on the bright side, with the divorce finalized, he can go out and shoot … you know what, forget it.
