Elin Nordegren reportedly dating financier Jamie Dingman [Poll]

Elin Nordegren has a new boyfriend Elin Nordegren, the former Mrs. Tiger Woods, reportedly has been dating a new man for months and was spotted with him in Sweden earlier this week: He's Jamie Dingman, an American finance guy with a billionaire dad.

Nordegren and Dingman met in January at a charity ball in Florida, the New York Post said Friday, and have been photographed smooching and hugging outside her Stockholm apartment, according to TMZ.

"He's never been so happy. He and Elin have strong feelings for each other," a friend told the Post's Page Six about Dingman, who splits his time between China and the Bahamas. "He's a classic all-American guy. He's handsome, a total gentleman and low-key.

"He's never been in the press."

Can't quite say the same for Woods, whom Nordegren ditched after a simple car accident around Thanksgiving 2009 resulted in the disclosure of the golfer's habit of sleeping with many, many women who were not his wife. Their divorce was final in August of last year.

Michael D. Dingman, Jamie's father, is a businessman and investor with a resume a mile long, a company (Shipston Group Ltd.) based out of the Bahamas and a business school named after him at the University of Maryland. Jamie has been handling his dad's interests in China for six years after getting his start with Russian investments, Post sources said.
