BY foxsports • December 20, 2009

If Tiger Woods does get divorced, he could be in for a bitter custody battle, according to a report.

England's Daily Mirror reported Sunday that Woods' wife Elin is prepared to raise their two children alone. She has already asked for a divorce, according to, which Thursday cited a source close to Woods' wife as saying that a "divorce is 100 percent on."

Woods has admitted cheating on his wife and there are allegations that he could have squeezed in extra tee times with as many as 14 other women. The Daily Mirror, citing an unnamed friend of Elin Woods, said Elin is upset that Tiger won't see sex addiction doctors and so she wants to limit his access to their children — 2-year-old Sam and 10-month-old Charlie.

“Everyone wants Tiger to get treatment and going down that road was his only real chance of delaying the divorce, but he wouldn’t even sit through therapy," the friend said. “Elin has had enough now. She’s made up her mind that she’s going for custody.”

Elin Woods was recently photographed without her wedding ring and according to the newspaper she's hired Hollywood divorce lawyer Sorrell Trope.

The Daily Mirror reported that Elin Woods wants to tear up her pre-nup, get full custody of the kids and try to get half of Tiger's money, citing unnamed friends. Woods' has earned $1 billion, according to Forbes.
