Sources claim Elin wants divorce

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -Several media outlets have quoted unnamed sources saying that Elin Nordegren will be filing for divorce from Tiger Woods in the wake of his confessed infidelity.

"She plans to leave Tiger," one source told People magazine in the issue due out today.

Another source told the magazine: "She's made up her mind. There's nothing to think about: He's never going to change."

ABC News and NBC News also posted online stories from unidentified sources, purportedly close to Woods and Nordegren, who echoed the sentiment.

"Divorce is 100 percent," one source told ABC. "She's not rushing to divorce. She's going to take her sweet time. She wants all the dirty laundry to be out on the table before she signs anything."

The frenzy over Woods' numerous liaisons, first reported by The National Enquirer, has leaped from the sports page to the front page, eclipsing any news surrounding his sport, which is in its offseason.

Woods on Thursday was voted male player of the year by the Golf Writers Association of America.

Also, PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem spoke about Woods, who is planning an "indefinite" leave from golf, for the first time since the scandal broke.

"I want him to come back and play," Finchem said in a conference call. "But we are going to be successful in '10. If Tiger is out for a couple of months or eight months of a year, we're going to have a successful year. ... It won't be at the same levels without our No. 1 player, there's no question about that. No sport would be at the same level without its No. 1 player.

"But I think the doom and gloom (talk) needs to go away."
