Tiger and Elin may split in Sweden

New York : Embattled golfer Tiger Woods and his wife may finally decide to file their divorce in Sweden at the end of the year to avoid the media circus, according to a report.

The entertainment website TMZ reported that the couple is working out agreements on child custody and division of assets.

Woods has reportedly hired West Palm Beach lawyer Thomas Sasser, an expert in child custody agreements that involve more than one jurisdiction.

"Wherever the divorce is filed, the plan is to keep the custody and property settlement agreements out of the court file. We're told the quicker and quieter the divorce, the better," the report said quoting sources.

It has been widely speculated that Elin decided to leave Woods once he decided to return to golf despite several public assurances to take a break from the game and mend relations with his family after his extra marital affairs became public.

Shocking details of his private life have received world-wide attention with several of the golfer's mistresses coming forward to provide information about his infidelity.

After the sex scandal broke, Woods took a five month break and then entered the Masters last month.

The cover-up was busted after his wife Elin found out about his extra marital affair with Rachel Uchitel, a New York party planner, which led to an argument and accident on November 27 when Woods crashed his SUV outside his Florida mansion sustaining minor injuries.

The golfer has apologized for his behavior, spent 45 days in rehab for sex-addiction and has spoken of continuing his treatment.

During his apology in February, Woods spoke of not returning to the game until he sorted out his personal life but changed his mind a few weeks later.

"I do plan to return to golf one day. I just don't know when that day will be," he said at the time, ruling out to return to golf this year.

"When I do return I need to make my behavior more respectful of the game."

After finishing fourth at the Masters, Woods did not give a definite answer as to when he would be playing next.

"I'm going to take a little time off and kind of re-evaluate things," he said.
