Tiger Woods’ ex-wife bulldozes $12 million home
By Shane Bacon | Devil Ball Golf – 1 hour 56 minutes ago

There are times when divorce forces people to do strange things. Burn sheets. Throw out clothes. Toss rings into the ocean. But when you get $100 million in your divorce, you can trump just about anything and that's what happened with Tiger Woods' ex-wife when she bought a $12 million home and bulldozed the whole thing.

Yes, according to TMZ, Elin Nordegren bought a $12 million home in North Palm Beach, Fla., but didn't like it, and has plowed the whole thing.

The house, which had six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, is now just rubble, with no word yet on what is going to replace the beautiful building you see above, but I guess when you have nine figures in the bank, it doesn't really matter what you want.

I guess we can all applaud Elin on not rolling over after all this happened and continuing on with her life. But I think we can all agree on one thing: Why in the world is she still in Florida? Wouldn't you want to move back home for good

We need more information on the house. It may have been a lot that she wanted and the house old or not to her liking. If the lot is good enough, a lot of people will demolish the house, particularly if it's old or outdated, people do pay $12 million for lots.

I never liked her or Tiger, now I kind of like Tiger.

Helen, clearly it was a hovel and needed to be put out of its misery. That being said, I think it looks a little out of place architecturally for Florida.

It's a beachfront property, the house was worth peanuts compared to the value of the land it was on. 12 million is the value of the whole property, not the house itself. Starting from scratch might not be that much more expensive than a thorough renovation for a house this size, so why not?

Who cares. She seems more comfortable in Sweden anyway. I just want to know what was so special about her to get Tiger to marry her and have her bear two crotchfruit when he clearly has some kind of monogamy problem?

It must be nice to be SO rich that you can just destroy a $12 million house just because you can

Easy to burn money when you didn't earn a dime. Oh, well, she used to earn some when she worked as a babysitter :oh:

I hope she spends all the divorce money quickly and ends up with nothing. That would be fair :p

The rumor is that Elin knew about Tiger's steroids use. Rather than fight Elin in court, which would reveal the steroid use, Tiger agreed to give her a 9 figure divorce settlement.

If you really want to know you can start by realizing that sex-drive and loving someone are different things. You can truly love someone and still be the type of person for whom monogamy is very difficult.
And "crotchfruit"? Really? :facepalm:

This means that someone's going to get the contract to build a new one. When things are in the shit in the construction industry it's going to make someone's new year.

OK, I know, she is the run-of-the-mill super hot, brainless gold digger who married a fugly billionaire that just for money and judging by that act, the thread is about she is indeed as dumb as you can get. However, she did teach a lesson to the lying, cheating bastard, hardcore style. :hearts:

As others have said, the house isn't worth $12 million; the beachfront property is worth $12 million. I am sure she can build her absolute dream house for $1-2 million. She's got $100 million so I'm sure she'll be fine. :lol:

Tiger Woods' former doctor pleads guilty to steroids charges

http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2011/jul/07/anthony-galea-pleads-guilty-tiger-woods

A doctor who helped Tiger Woods recover from a knee injury has pleaded guilty to bringing steroids and other unapproved substances into the United States. Anthony Galea, a Canadian, faces up to three years in prison.

The 51-year-old was charged last year with bringing in a series of drugs under false labels, including a form of human growth hormone called Nutropin. He also lacked a licence to practise in the US.

Tiger Woods: Was Golf's Biggest Star Juicing?

http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/178678/20110712/tiger-woods-steroids-anthony-galea-hgh-performance-enhancing-drugs-trial.htm

Just a thought, but I can't help thinking in hindsight that Tiger Woods showed all of the characteristics of an athlete delivering exceptionally with the benefit of performance enhancing drugs in recent years.

Woods was a lean and powerful player with exceptional endurance, and he seemed to have something more than rare talent in becoming for years the world's top-ranked professional golfer.

Most all of the top professional golfers have rare talent, after all.

Sure, he had those red shirts he wore on Sunday for an extra boost, and he was a phenom since an early age -- but it seems, in looking back, there may have been something else. Just like it seemed with professional baseball players Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire. Just like it seems with cyclist Lance Armstrong. And, just like it seems with former standout MLB pitcher Roger Clemens.

Clearly she bought the place for the land and didn't care about the house. I'm not sure why this is a big deal.

She earned it. :shrug:

Elin Nordegren, Tiger Woods's ex-wife, last week let loose a bulldozer on the $12-million oceanfront mansion she bought last year because, her builder tells PEOPLE, starting over made the most economical sense.

The 17,000-ft., six-bedroom home in a gated community in North Palm Beach, Fla., was built in the 1920s, Dan Reedy of Onshore Construction and Development, tells PEOPLE. "It wasn't built to the South Florida wind-loading codes of today that were put in place because of hurricanes. We had an architect and a structural engineer out here and everyone agreed that it made more sense – structurally and economically – to tear it down and start over."

But it wasn't a total loss. Nordegren gave Habitat for Humanity of Martin County, Fla., four weeks to methodically go through the structure and salvage tens of thousands of dollars worth of cabinets, hardware and fixtures. That's when termite and carpenter-ant infestations were discovered, says Habitat's director of deconstruction, Bobbi Blodgett.

"When we pulled out the windows, the bugs were everywhere," says Blodgett. "To rebuild that house would have been ridiculous. We're so grateful to Elin. It's rare we get this kind of donation."

Considering they're not getting tested, the odds are extremely high that they're doping. They have a lot to gain and don't risk anything.
