The divorce of the couple comes after nine months after Tiger Wood's car crash outside his home set off shocking revelations that the world's most famous athlete had been cheating on his wife.
"We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future," said Woods and Elin Nordegren in a joint statement.
"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," they said in the statement.
Terms of the divorce were not disclosed, except that they will share parenting of their two children. The couple married in Oct 2004 in Barbados and have a 3 year-old daughter, Sam, and a 19 month-old son, Charlie.
