Tiger Woods’ ex-wife has come out of jersey chasing retirement, this time trading the green for ice. Elin Nordegren is linked to San Jose Shark defenseman Douglas Murray, who like Nordegren is a fellow Swede. According to the Swedish gossip site Expressen, the couple got cozy at Rose Nightclub in Stockholm last week. Earlier this month, Nordegren and Murray dinned with mutual friends.
The friend playing matchmaker just so happens to be Jesper Parnevik, the man who set up Nordegren and Woods. Nordegren and her twin sister nannied for Parnevik in 2000, introducing Elin to Woods a year later.
Despite the rumored romance Murray is denying any relationship. “We are only friends,” Murray told Expressen. “We are not dating and we have never dated. We have friends in common and we have only known each other for a couple of weeks.”
Perviously, Nordegren dated investment banker, Jamie Dingman and even planned to marry him.
She may no longer be a jersey chaser, but Elin Nordegren is still capturing the attention of Tiger Woods over reports that the Swedish beauty is planning to marry her investment banker boyfriend, Jamie Dingman.
Tiger is reportedly “fuming” now that Dingman has grown close to his two children with Nordegren after 8 months of dating.
The couple’s relationship became public during the summer almost two years after Tiger’s cheating allegations emerged during Thanksgiving 2009 and became the national spotlight.
It was the National Enquirer who first broke the Woods-Rachel Uchitel affair, and now the tabloid is reporting: “Tiger has always hoped, unrealistically, that he and Elin would get back together one day. She’s serving notice that he has lost her for good, and another man will be raising his kids.”
Nordegren received over $100 million from the divorce settlement… but considering Dingman owned an Indy-race car team does not need the money. The investment banker, specializes in Russian private equity also may specialize in wounded jersey chasers, as he has been previously linked to Bridget Moynahan.
And I know what you are all thinking… no he is not a golfer!
Yesterday TJC reported EA Sports did not put Tiger Woods on his latest video game cover Tiger Woods PGA Golf 12. Now, Tiger has lost another endorsement deal, with Golf Digest.
After 13-years, Tiger and the magazine are parting ways. Tiger released a statement through the magazine saying, “I enjoyed my relationship with Golf Digest. But we have decided it’s now time for a break. I wish my friends at Golf Digest continued success.”
In the Statement, chairman of Golf Digest Jerry Tarde said, “We appreciate the insights Tiger has provided to our readers.” Wonder if Tarde told Tiger, it’s not you it’s me.
