Speculations of divorce between disgraced golfer Tiger Woods and his wife Elin have renewed after reports that the Swedish model is not willing to give her husband a second chance.
Sunday Mirror, a UK tabloid, quoted sources as saying that Elin met lawyers to discuss divorce matter after Woods
announced plans to return to golf in April.
"She went to her lawyers and told them, 'I'm going through with it', a friend was quoted as saying.
The announcement to play in the Masters was contrary to what Woods said in his apology in February when the golfer
spoke of spending time with his family.
"I do plan to return to golf one day. I just don't know when that day will be," he said, ruling out 2010. "When I do
return I need to make my behaviour more respectful of the game."
Following Woods apology, reports suggested that the embattled couple were on their way to a reconciliation. But
now, the Mirror reported that Elin was furious that Woods had, once again, picked golf over the family at this critical time for their marriage.
"But now he's spending 16 hours a day on the practice ground, putting his game first, like the selfish, narcissistic
husband he is. It's made Elin realise there won't be any real end to this and she needs to get out," the friend said.
Woods has not played for the past five months following the sex scandal that has received worldwide attention as
several of the golfer's mistresses came forward with lurid details about his infidelity.
The cat was out of the bag after his wife Elin found out about his affair with, Rachel Uchitel, a New York party
planner, which led to an argument and accident on November 27 when Woods crashed his SUV outside his Florida mansion
sustaining minor injuries.
Woods apologised for his behaviour in February, asked the media to back off from his private life, and revealed that he
would use Buddhism to get his life back on track.
"I want to say to each one of you simply and directly I am deeply sorry for the irresponsible and selfish behaviour I
engaged in," he had said.
"I am embarrassed I have put you in this position. For all that I have done I am so sorry."
Woods has completed six weeks of sex-rehab at two different centres in the US. This week, another porn star,
Devon James claimed to have an affair with Woods.
If true, that brings the total of Woods' mistresses to 15, including three porn stars.
