I think his kids may be on his mind... That is one of the hardest parts about divorces, the children. I could not imagine living without my kids in my daily life, if you do not have kids its hard to understand... I think people are forgetting that Tiger is not 20 something anymore and as you get older your priorities change in life. Sometimes people need to fall before it all makes sense to them!

Well said. Kids are the victims in divorce, they did no wrong.

So, how much $$ did she get?

Details weren't disclosed, other than shared custody of the children. A pre-nup was in place for $20M, but there is speculation she re-negotiated and received $200M - $300M plus one of their homes in Florida. It could have been worse, Tiger's estimated to be worth $1B+, so anything less than half is a victory for Tiger.

So, will Tiger finally be able to get past his past and entertain us once again in a way only he knows how?

I feel like in the last month he's become a lot more serious about his game, as well he should be. He's been sucking.

I also feel like most of it was mental (not being focused) as you don't just lose the entire golf swing in a 6 month lay off. You are rusty for sure, but in no way did you lose your knowledge of how your swing works. At least a professional shouldn't. He may have lost something in his swing, but it's not like he's washed up. That's where a swing coach comes in.

Again, now that he's divorced he can try and move on and I think he's realizing how much he wants to finish out his professional career as strong as he started it.

If you mean while on the course, yes. He still has to have a life though. Golfing 10 hours a day isn't fun. Let me correct that. Practicing 10 hours a day isn't fun. I'd say tour players play/practice/warmup about 7-8 hours a day during the season. Some days its even 10 hours. But when they take breaks, they are usually at least a week but typically two and they sometimes don't even pick up a club. Still, it would be hard to have much of a life outside of golf as a touring pro. One who wanted to keep his card anyways.

Call me crazy, but he will be hot again sometimes soon. Now he can get back to his routine, which is practice, plays in certain tournaments, and of course, get laid wherever he goes. In that order, he will win tournaments like he did back in the days.

I don't think it's the knee either. If it was truly bothering him or affecting his swing we'd be able to see it on TV. People are underestimating the mental stress of signifcant life changes. Especially ones that hurt but have to be done to move on. Here's my post from the thread I started which should be deleted. Didn't see this one.

TMZ says ~$100M. Tiger's only worth about $600M (ha, "only"), and he made a lot of that money before he married Elin.

I'd like to be worth only $600M. I guess he lost some prior to the divorce, because I'd read last year he was worth $1B, and in the Reuters article they reported $1B as well. Tough situation, wish them both well, for the kids sake.

No, they said he'd MADE $1B. Income. If you have all of the money you've ever made, raise your hand...

Taxes, expenses, donations... Quite conceivable that he'd lose 40% of the $1B earned to those things.

    • I'm the Competitions Secretary at our club. We told the members that in competitions that require a scorecard they won't get cards prepared by the committee, nor should they prepare their own, instead the card they prep is for the player they are marking. At the end of the round they check the scores with their player, then input the score online on their behalf, then keep the card on the player's behalf - just in case we (the committee) need to see an photo of that card - so that no cards are swapped. All pretty simple, right? And yet, at our tee closure competitions, I still see members swapping cards at the end. I've even had a couple walk up to hand their card (or card) to me to input the scores for them, like we used to pre-Covid. I just don't get it!
    • Well you just get everywhere, dontcha!   By the way, I joined before you, so... Welcome to TST, BK!
    • Gotcha.  I made 8 days in a row walking in Scotland a couple years ago, including a couple of 36 hole days, I'm sure I'll be good for this one.  I did see that SV has trolleys available, I'll end up using one of those.
    • It probably would for those of us playing 4-5 days, but I want to make sure any of the guys doing 3 days of golf get a chance to play both SV courses, in the even of some bad weather one of the first couple days.  So it is probably best to go 3 days in a row at SV.
    • Today was an interesting day - shot my lowest front nine ever at 41!  3 pars, 4 bogies, 1 double and 1 birdie.  Drives were consistently in the fairsways, putts were falling, irons were going true. The back nine was blissful as I finished there with a 50.  The gears slipped a little as I began to fat so some fairways and chunk the irons.  Still to leave there with a 91 for the day, I felt really good.  My son was right there with me at 96.  Today was interesting in that I began to see the potential of really good scores on the horizon.
