As expensive as it was, Tiger Woods' divorce came up short of Greg Norman’s one as the most expensive in the golf’s long history.
Tiger Woods and Greg Norman
The divorce from Elin Nordegren, after discovering the golfer’s infidelities, cost Tiger Woods $100 million, a lot for the average millionaire but pocket change for one of the world’s most prominent athletes.
However, Woods’ costly divorce from Nordegren still isn’t the most expensive in the sports’ history. That honor goes to Greg Norman. According to Reuters, when his first marriage to Laura Andrassy failed after the golfer’s affair with tennis superstar Chris Evert, his ex-wife got a good chunk of his initial earnings.
Norman’s divorce cost the legendary golfer $103 million, with more money going to his children. It’s the biggest divorce payoff in golf history. Two weeks ago, the 15-time major champion announced he is back home and continuing his recovery.
“Happy to report that I am back home and continuing my recovery. I am so grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement that I have received over the past few weeks”. On Saturday night, he made his second public comment following his accident.
He congratulated Tsubasa Kajitani, who one the Augusta National Women’s Amateur in a playoff. "Congrats to Tsubasa Kajitani on winning the @anwagolf with an amazing playoff finish. Enjoy the special moment, and good luck to all of the kids tomorrow in the @DriveChipPutt", Woods said.
There is an update about Tiger Woods accident. The Los Angeles County sheriff says detectives have determined what caused Tiger Woods to crash his SUV last month in Southern California but would not release details Wednesday, citing unspecified privacy concerns for the golf star.
"A cause has been determined, the investigation has concluded. We have reached out to Tiger Woods and his personnel. There’s some privacy issues on releasing information on the investigation so we’re going to ask them if they waive the privacy and then we will be able to do a full release on all the information regarding the accident.
We have all the contents of the black box, we’ve got everything,” Villanueva said. “It’s completed, signed, sealed and delivered. However, we can’t release it without the permission of the people involved in the collision", Sheriff Alex Villanueva said during a live social media event Wednesday in response to a question posed by The Associated Press.
