Elin Nordegren: I'm Happy For Tiger Woods ... But You Can't Ever Forget That

by at .

Elin Nordegren is opening up about ex-husband Tiger Woods in the new issue of People, telling the magazine, "I have moved on, and I am in a good place."


Elin Nordegren Graduates!

Indeed. She just graduated from Rollins College with a 3.96 GPA, earning her the Class of 2014's top honor and even gave the commencement speech.

During her address, Elin Nordegren made a few jokes at Woods' expense. Still, she insists they're fine ... even if she'll never totally get over what he did.

"I have moved on, and I am in a good place," she says, even though "the word betrayal isn't strong enough" to describe Tiger's immense cheating.

Given his prolific banging of Rachel Uchitel (and Jamie Grubbs, and Joslyn James, and Holly Sampson, and on and on and on), one can certainly understand.

Still, regarding her ex, she reiterates, "Our relationship is centered around our children, and we are doing really good. We really are. He is a great father."

"I'm happy for Tiger," she says, adding of Lindsey Vonn, "In general, in any kind of stepparent relationship, I'm happy that there's somebody else loving my children."

Nordegren is currently dating coal magnate Chris Cline, 55, and recently moved into a new Florida mansion. They see Tiger and Lindsey regularly.

Perhaps because of the insatiable interest in her personal life, she says only, "Chris and I, since we've been close, have decided not to talk about our relationship."

Whether marriage and more children are in her future, Nordegren plays it coy, saying that she can certainly see it, but isn't looking at it as make-or-break:

"I think I would like that. Yeah. But I have a boy and a girl, and I couldn't ask for anything more. I'm in a great spot ... great if it happens, great if it doesn't."

Great that she's handled this whole situation so well for the last four and a half years, and to see her in such a good place with her own life and Tiger's.
