It's official -- Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren are divorced.

It's the conclusion to a saga that began with a minor car accident outside their Florida home around Thanksgiving 2009 and ran an ugly course through myriad mistresses, millions of dollars in lost endorsements and wild speculation about how much the divorce settlement would cost the world's top golfer.

"We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future," the two said in a statement released by her lawyers. Both Tiger and Elin appeared Monday ...

... in Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, Fla., officials told TMZ.

Terms of the divorce weren't disclosed, except that Woods and Nordegren will share parenting of their two children, ages 3 and 1.
