Who is Elin Nordegren?
American model, nanny and businesswoman Elin Maria Pernilla Nordegren was born in Stockholm, Sweden, on 1 January 1980, making Capricorn her zodiac sign. She’s probably only known for being a former wife of American professional golfer Eldrick Tont ‘Tiger’ Woods, who to this day remains one of the highest-paid golfers of all time; Tiger’s won numerous competitions and holds many golf records, while he shares first place for PGA Tour wins.
Education and early life
Elin, her twin sister Josefin and brother Axel were raised in Stockholm by their Swedish mother Barbro Holmberg who’s a Democratic politician and former Minister for Migration and Asylum Policy, and Swedish father Carl Axel Thomas Nordegren who’s a journalist and author.
Elin was a responsible teenager, as she worked at a local supermarket to earn money for the things that she wanted, rather than asking her parents for it; she studied at a local high school in Stockholm, and upon matriculating in 1998 enrolled at college, and continued working to pay for her studies.
She launched her modelling career in 2000, and in the summer appeared on the cover page of the magazine “Café Sport”; this led Elin to drop out of college and focus on her career. She eventually enrolled at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida 10 years later, and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology in May 2014.
Upon dropping out of college in 2000, Elin began working at a clothing store in Stockholm while simultaneously working on her way up as a model; she met Mia Parvenik at the store, who’s the wife of famous Swedish professional golfer Jesper Bo Parnevik, and she invited Elin to move to the USA to take care of their children as their au pair.
Elin went on to work for Mia for two years, and after marrying Tiger became focused on being a housewife, and then also a mother.
She eventually returned to modelling, and became a socialite, while she’s today again focused on raising her children, as her two sons were born in 2019 and 2022.

Tiger wanted to meet Elin not long after she moved to the US and began working for Mia and Jesper Parnevik, but she was seeing someone else at that time and didn’t want to meet him; after she and her boyfriend broke up, she was introduced to Tiger at the 2001 Open Championship.
The two exchanged vows in October 2004, and she gave birth to their daughter Sam Alexis in 2007, while their son Charlie Axel followed in 2009. After it was revealed in December 2009 that Tiger had cheated on Elin, she filed for divorce and it was finalized on 23 August 2010.
