Tiger Woods' ex Elin Nordegren demos $12.3-million Florida house

Elin Nordegren has demolished the house she bought after divorcing Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods may have gotten off easy when Elin Nordegren took a mere golf club to his Escalade: Nordegren has finally taken a wrecking ball to the $12.3-million oceanfront house she bought last March, shortly after her divorce from the golfer.

That's 17,000 square feet of 1932 construction, including eight bathrooms, gone for good in North Palm Beach, Fla.

The plan is to build anew on a the Seminole Landing lot that one real estate agent told the Palm Beach Post has "incredible landscaping, fantastic ocean frontage."

Around the time she bought the lavish estate, it was reported that Nordegren intended to keep only the view and the security system. Click this link to see the "before" picture, and this one to see the post-demo "after" shot.

Elin and Tiger finalized their infidelity-induced divorce in August 2010, with Nordegren getting a $110-million settlement.
