Woods keeps Florida home
Tiger Woods might have lost his place in the FedEx Cup final next week, but he hasn’t lost his Isleworth home in Florida.
Tiger Woods might have lost his place in the FedEx Cup final at East Lake next week, but he hasn’t lost his Isleworth home in Florida.
According to a report by Bloomberg News, the golfer has kept the home in the gated golf estate he once shared with his ex-wife Elin Nordegren.
In a legal document dated July 4, Bloomberg reports, the property, valued at $2.4 million by the Orange County property appraiser last year, was transferred into Woods’s sole possession on that date.
Woods has been reported to be building a larger home in Florida that will include a dock for his luxury yacht. He has also been reported as having purchased a luxury apartment in New York, so it is not clear where he plans to live in the long-term.
In the meantime, however, it seems he will continue living in the Isleworth home which was to spawn the family row that led to him crashing his SUV into a tree and a fire hydrant just outside the gate on Thanksgiving night and which, in turn, opened the can of worms about his adulterous private life, led to the break-up of his marriage and with it, to his winless stumble on the pro golf circuit this season.
Woods and Nordegren were divorced in July after he had admitted to multiple extra-marital affairs and attended a clinic for sex addiction in an attempt to save the marriage.
A spokesman for law firm McGuireWoods LLP, which represented Nordegren, widely reported to have received $100 million in the divorce settlement, said that no further details of the settlement will be disclosed.
