Tiger Woods Divorce: Golf Phenom Already Getting Propositioned
Elin Nordegren employed eight attorneys to Woods' one.
Aug. 24, 2010 — -- Tiger Woods woke up a single man today, one day after finalizing his divorce from wife Elin Nordegren, but at least one of his former mistresses is reportedly ready to change his bachelor status.
Woods' divorce caps nine months of embarrassing details about his sex life and poor performances on the golf course. Most of the details of the divorce were kept private, including custody of their children and any financial agreements.
But court documents obtained by ABC News show that Nordegren hired eight attorneys from three cities and London while Woods employed just one. Nordegren has also formally returned to using her maiden name.
While Nordegren plunges into a new life as a single mother, Woods' sordid past keeps haunting him.
One of his reported former mistresses, Rachel Uchitel, is prepared to "give up everything" to get Woods back, one of her close friends told TMZ.com.
Uchitel reportedly told the friend after news of the divorce broke, TMZ reported, " "I feel horrible for him. He loved her. But he was in love with me. I hope he remembers that was real, and reaches out to me."
The continuing drama in his personal life seems to be affecting Woods on the green. The day he worked out the initial marital settlement agreement in July, Woods played one of his worst rounds of golf ever at the AT&T National Golf Tournament.
ABC News sports consultant and USA Today columnist Christine Brennan said even just the absence of support on the course from his family could throw off his game.
"It's an iconic image in golf. The golfer with his wife and kids or the female golfer with her husband and kids," she told "Good Morning America." "And that will not be the case."
But the Woods saga could eventually include an epilogue of redemption, Brennan said, if he's able to to get his head back in the game even as a rising young crop of golfers is getting notice.
"It's a very valid question," Brennan said. "Can Tiger win another major?"
