Tiger Woods' estranged wife, Elin Nordegren, will seek to divorce the world's best golfer, ABC News.com reported last night.
A source close to Nordegren, who recently purchased a home in her native Sweden, told the Web site that a "divorce is 100 percent on."
The two have been married for five years and have a 2-year-old daughter and a 10-month-old son.
Woods announced late last week that he was taking an indefinite leave from golf while he works to fix his marriage after multiple allegations of infidelity.
Woods has not been seen in public since a car crash in his driveway two weeks ago triggered a spate of revelations about his private life.
At the PGA Tour's headquarters in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., commissioner Tim Finchem tried to dispel a "gloom and doom" outlook for golf with the game's biggest star on an indefinite leave.
He predicted a successful season in 2010, while conceding that no sport is as good without its best player.
"I can't think of anything else that was more of a curveball," said Finchem, who has been commissioner since 1994. "Just the magnitude of it. I can't recall an individual in politics, entertainment, sports, with this level of focus that it's generating in the media. Everybody is talking about it. My 17-year-old daughter comes home from school, they're talking about it in the classroom.
"I've often said that up until [President Barack] Obama, he was the most recognized guy on the planet, and everybody thought he was perfect. The realization that he's not is huge news."
Finchem said he was not concerned with Woods' being linked to a Canadian doctor under investigation because his assistant was found transporting drugs, including HGH, into the United States. The doctor, Anthony Galea, said he treated Woods with "blood spinning" to help his recovery from knee surgery.
Phelps sympathizes. Swimmer Michael Phelps expressed sympathy for Woods and his family because of the scrutiny resulting from the golfer's admitted infidelity.
"He's going through a hard time right now, I assume - I've no idea what he is going through - but it can't be easy. I just wish him the best for himself and his family," said Phelps, who's in Manchester, England, for the "Duel in the Pool" swim meet. "I'd be the first to admit I've made a lot of mistakes, both in and out of the pool."
Phelps, who won a record eight Olympic gold medals in Beijing, was photographed three months later holding a marijuana pipe.
Another award. Woods was voted male player of the year by the Golf Writers Association of America by an overwhelming margin over Steve Stricker. It was the 10th time Woods has won the award in his 13 years as a pro.
