Elin Nordegren Takes a Subtle Jab at Tiger Woods in Her Graduation Speech
Tiger Woods' former wife Elin Nordegren hasn't been sitting around in the four years since their divorce became official.
After scoring a $100 million settlement from Woods as part of their divorce, Nordegren has earned her college degree from Rollins College, located just outside Orlando.
A psychology major who graduated with a 3.96 cumulative GPA, Nordegren was named the class' Outstanding Senior and was asked to give a speech. She spoke about graduating nine years after she started taking classes, and the struggles of continuing her nighttime education as a single mom.
She also made some veiled references to her famous ex-husband:
"When I entered my student advisor's office in the fall of 2005, I was 25 years old, I had just recently moved to America, I was married without children. Today, nine years later, I’m a proud American, and I have two beautiful children … but I’m no longer married."
“It was right after I had taken Communications and the Media that I was unexpectedly thrust into the media limelight … and I probably should have taken more notes in that class.”
