Elin Nordegren won't join Tiger Woods at Masters

March 29, 2010 | 12:34 pm

Elin_400 is reporting that Elin Nordegren will not honor Tiger Woods' request to join him in Augusta for the tournament, which runs April 8-11.

"Elin does not want to go to the Masters and is preparing for a trip to see her family and friends in Sweden," a source close to Nordegren told People. "She is also being asked by Tiger to attend the Masters, even if for a half day, to look like she is interested in supporting his return to golf. But she would rather not be there."

The Daily Mirror is taking the story even further, saying Nordegren was so infuriated by her husband's decision to play in the Masters that she went to see divorce lawyers the day after he made the announcement. According to the article, which cites Nordegren's friends as anonymous sources, the Swedish model is angered that Woods is not putting his family first as promised and has taken their children to live with friends about an hour from the family's home in Isleworth, Fla.
