Woods, Nordegren statement on divorce

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren issued a joint statement through

their attorneys on Monday regarding their divorce:

”We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other

the very best for the future. While we are no longer married, we

are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has

been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us.

Once we came to the decision that our marriage was at an end, the

primary focus of our amicable discussions has been to ensure their

future well-being. The weeks and months ahead will not be easy for

them as we adjust to a new family situation, which is why our

privacy must be a principal concern.”
