Elin Nordegren Buys New Home Near Tiger Woods
Golf pro Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren has bought a $12.2 million beach-front property in North Palm Beach, Fla., just 10 miles from Tiger's new digs.
According to Palm Beach County records, Nordegren bought the two-story mansion--which boasts eight bathrooms and a 4,700-square-foot basement--in February through one of her divorce lawyers, Dennis Belcher, Huffington Post reports.

Woods' new 12-acre $50-million home includes a 6,400-square-foot gym/media room/bar, an elevator, a reflecting pond, a lap pool, and a 3.5 acre practice facility.
"[The practice facility] features four greens, six bunkers with different depths and kinds of sand, a video center and a putting studio," Woods wrote on his blog last week. "It's also set up so I can hit shots out of my second-story studio."
The couple finalized their divorce in August 2010. They agreed to live near one another for the sake of their children, Sam and Charlie.
