Nobody ever said marriage was easy, especially if you are a professional golfer. Here are 10 messy Tour pro divorces.
Tiger Woods And Elin Nordegren
Quite possibly the biggest scandal in all of sports involved arguably the greatest player in the history of golf. Of course, we are referring to that fateful November night in 2009 when Tiger Woods crashed his car into a fire hydrant while his wife at the time was reportedly chasing him with a golf club. Elin Nordegren discovered Woods had been cheating on her, but that was just the tip of the iceberg. Mistress after mistress lined up to reveal the sexual encounters they had with the 14-time major winner. The scandal was so huge, the infamous New York Post actually ran Tiger on their cover for 20 consecutive days, eclipsing the 19-day mark set by the horrific events of 9/11. Needless to say, Elin filed for divorce after seven years of marriage and got a nice little settlement out of it.
