They say time heals all wounds, but they also say time wounds all heels. Elin Nordegren has already achieved the latter when she divorced Tiger Woods, receiving an estimated $100 million divorce settlement from the PGA star. On Saturday, it was reported that the couple were seen together for the first time in years.
Notably, though, they were seen with their children, and it was a local youth sports organization event, held in Jupiter, Fla. It would appear they were together for that age-old reason divorced couples try to maintain civility: the kids.
Tiger was seen arriving first with his son and daughter (Charlie Axel Woods, three, and Sam Alexis Woods, five). Elin arrived about an hour later.
Neither was with anyone else -- aside from the kids -- and reports are that when the two finally met, they seemed congenial, chatting chatted together for about half-an-hour. They reportedly enjoyed each other's company.
Sources said that once the couple noticed they were drawing attention, they quickly left. Strangely, both were seen leaving in Nordegren's car.
The meeting comes just weeks after reports that Woods has been attempting to win his ex-wife Nordegren back with a $200 million deal. The National Enquirer reported in January that Woods was desperate to win Nordegren back. Further reports say that Nordegren said she would consider his entreaties, but only if the golfer includes a $350 million anti-cheating clause into the "wedding contract."
Woods and Nordegren split began when on Nov. 25, 2009, The National Enquirer published a story claiming that Woods had an affair with New York City nightclub manager Rachel Uchitel. That was followed by a 2009 Black Friday incident, when Woods crashed his SUV, with some claiming that Nordegren had been pursuing him with a -- wait for it -- golf club, after an argument over his affairs. Shortly thereafter, information about numerous Woods affairs emerged, with the couple's divorce becoming final in 2010.
While the Daily Mail said the Woods - Nordegren appearance sparks those aforementioned rumors of a reunion yet again, Tiger Woods and skier Lindsey Vonn have been linked recently, with the golfer even lending her his private jet to exit Austria after her recent horrific spill during competition.
