Elin Nordegren to divorce Tiger Woods [Updated]

December 17, 2009 |  7:23 am

Elin_240Tiger Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, will seek a divorce from the world's No. 1 golfer, ABCNews.com is reporting.

A source close to Nordegren told the website Wednesday that a "divorce is 100% on." Woods and his wife have been married for five years and have a 2-year-old daughter and a 10-month-old son.

The report comes nearly three weeks after Woods crashed his sport-utility vehicle into a tree outside his Florida home, setting in motion a whirlwind of bad news.

Woods has not been seen in public since the Nov. 27 accident. Moving vans were seen outside his home Wednesday, and his wife has been photographed without her wedding ring in recent days.

[Updated at 9:30 a.m.: PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem does not seem too worried about Woods' proclamation that he's taking an indefinite leave from golf.

"I don't know what that time frame is and frankly I'm not concerned about that," Finchem said, according to Reuters.

Finchem believes that golf will be just fine without its megastar.

"We lost Tiger in 2008 for most of the year when he was out with an injury. We move forward," Finchem told CNBC in his first interview since the scandal, Reuters reported.

He added, "Without Tiger for a period of time, we will perform quite well."]
