Tiger Woods' Worst Year Ever: 2010 in Pictures

Stocks in this article: NKE PEP PG T ACN AXP ERTS GOLF ELY


"We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future," Tiger and Elin said in a joint written statement on Aug. 23. "While we are no longer married, we are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us."

Judgment was entered in Bay County Florida Circuit Court dissolving the marriage. The Judgment provided for shared parenting of Tiger and Elin's two children Sam, 3 and Charlie, 1.

According to ABC News, Elin had begun using her maiden name again. Court documents also revealed that Elin was being advised by eight attorneys from several cities, including London, during the divorce proceedings. Tiger, according to ABC News, hired just one attorney.

On August 31, US Magazine, reported that Tiger, now newly single, had moved into a new apartment in downtown Manhattan. Meanwhile, ex-wife Elin had also been busy taking care of her own pad. According to The Hollywood Reporter, she was revamping a $3 million waterfront home in Sweden.

The news came after market research firm NPD said that that Electronic Arts' (ERTS) Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 sold only 32% of the volume sold in its first month last year and didn't even make it to the top ten title list in June.

EA Sports attributed the disappointing numbers to "the slowing of the overall Wii software market and Tiger's performance on the course," according to CNBC. Notably missing from this statement was his gigantic sex scandal, which dominated media coverage for months after it broke last year but that Nike chairman Phil Knight had dismissed as a "minor blip" in his career in an interview with SportsBusiness Journal.

This assessment came out as Tiger Woods competed in the AT&T National tournament taking place between June 28 and July 4 at the Aronimink Golf Club outside Philadelphia. This year, Tiger would no longer be the official host for the tournament, as AT&T dropped their endorsement agreement, along with a handful of other large sponsors at the height of his sex scandal.
