Elin Nordegren parties in Orlando; while Tiger's friends wonder why he's been silent

Feb 15, 2010, 11:30 AM EDT

In today’s Tiger Woods roundup, we have his golfing buddies beginning to complain that he hasn’t made a move to contact any of them; wife Elin Nordegren stepping out in Orlando for a friend’s birthday party (still sans wedding ring), and one of the alleged harem of mistresses claiming that Tiger got her pregnant … twice. First, Radar Online has photos of Elin attending a birthday dinner party on Saturday, reporting that she “made it clear to Tiger that he was not invited.” Woods, says Radar, stayed at home with their two children, with whom he “was just recently reunited.” Also according to Radar, Woods is back at their Isleworth estate mansion, while Nordegren is staying at another home in a gated community about a mile away.

Last week, Mark O’Meara, known to have helped guide Woods through his early career and who once lived in the same gated community at Isleworth as Woods, where the two would often share practice rounds, expressed disappointment that Woods has not tried to contact him.

“I’m disappointed,” O’Meara said to ESPN at Spyglass Hill, where he shot 77 in the opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, a tournament he has won five times. “I’m disappointed for my friend. I was shocked like the rest of us were shocked. I don’t think anybody would agree with what happened.”

Woods has not been heard from since announcing his leave on his Web site while acknowledging marital infidelity. Since that time, the rumor mill has churned with numerous tabloid reports.

During that two-month period, no one in Woods’ management team has confirmed or denied any of the reports. And when he will return to competitive golf remains a mystery.

“I guess he has all these advisers,” O’Meara said earlier this week during a conference call to promote the Champions Tour’s Toshiba Classic. “I’m not his adviser. I would have handled it differently, myself, personally. But that’s who I am. Whether he’s handled it right or wrong, only time can decide that. Tiger is being Tiger.

“I think he’ll probably do something with the media eventually. I think people will forgive. But it’s going to be hard to forget for sure.”

O’Meara, 53, said he has not spoken “physically” to Woods since playing a practice round with him prior to the British Open at Turnberry. He has tried to reach him because “I’m concerned for his well-being.”

But there has been no other communication, and given their relationship — or at least what it once was — that is another in a long line of oddities surrounding this entire saga.

OK, and just for your files, alleged Tiger mistress Josyln James told Inside Edition on Sunday that Tiger got her pregnant, twice. Read the details at Radar Online if you must.

The 32-year-old porn star said she never told Woods, 34, about either of the pregnancies — which occurred between 2006 and 2009, during the same time frames his wife Elin Nordegren was pregnant with the couple’s two children — because she “didn’t want to ruin anything.”

Say what you want about Tiger’s mistakes, but you have to admit that he’s done a very good job of not being seen. At this point there have been more credible sightings of Elvis since Christmas than there have been of Woods.

    The fact that he is a “public” figure, his problems and solutions are personal nobody’s business, even if your Mark O’Meara.
    He owes no one an explanation.
    If you idolized him or anyone like him, you are pathetic and an idiot.

    I wish EVERYONE would leave Tiger and his wife alone! Please give them space to heal and get through this ordeal. To the women who came forth to the world to so called tell there story, the only person who has the right to be angry is Elin! The rest of you money grubbing scandelous whores, need to get a reality check. YOur nothing but Jezebel’s who wanted nothing more but to be in the spotlight. The latest one with the I was pregnant not once but twice. You felt it necessary to have an abortion. You didn’t care anything about him or yourself. You are and were selfish.Then the funny part is you waited until the rumors of him and his wife get back together to come out of the woodworks with your foolishness! How dare you?? I wish Tiger and Elin all the best and I hope you you can get through this and take care of your wife and family like you are supposed to and leave these GG’s (Golf Groupies)alone. No woman will ever love you like your wife. God said that he who finds a wife finds a good thing, Don’t throw away what GOD has given you for trash. Notice that’s what’s coming to you and came out of all this.

    Why don’t you also mention Radar has published another article right after saying that the porn star was a compulsive liar, and that she was out to make money! LIKE I SAID FROM DAY ONE, ALL THESE GARBAGE STORIES ABOUT TIGER AND ELIN ARE ALL LIES! I BELIEVE HE CHEATED, BUT NOT TO THIS EXTREME! STOP TRYING TO DRAG HIS NAME THROUGH THE MUD! LET TIGER AND ELIN WORK ON THEIR MARRIAGE! I hope they make it just to shut everybody up!

  5. Dee Mirich and the Supremes - Feb 15, 2010 at 10:32 PM

    Yeah, shut up everyone! I’m thinking of making a Youtube video where I weep and tell everyone to leave Tiger alone! Mommy!

    I agree with the people that are saying “SHUT UP”, this is enough already. This is just getting more ridiculous by the day and I know these girls are all just trying to make money off of these stories, which I personally do not believe. Sure, I know he had affairs but not to the extent that they are trying to say and it is just getting really sickening to me.
    I wish that everyone would leave them alone to try to decide what to do with their personal life. They have enough problems without everyone being in THEIR business. It sounds like Elin doesn’t want a divorce yet, although she doesn’t want anything to do with him either. I guess she needs more time to decide. This is a very hard thing for her and for Tiger, even though he did cause it by cheating. He is a normal person and the best sports figure of all time, and needs to be able to concentrate on getting back to playing golf like only he can. I hope they will just ignore all of these stupid comments and Elin surely can see these girls just want money.
    Tiger, please just concentrate on Elin and the children and getting back on the course is the best therapy for you. You are the greatest golfer ever and this will all blow over when you get back. You need to maybe reach out to some of the people on the tour that are trying to reach out to you for support Tiger. I think that would help you so much. You have many friends and alot of fans that are always going to stand behind you!!!! Good Luck to you and your family, Tiger!! Go get those Majors this year!!!!!

    Everybody (including women) has fantacies and if given the oppurtunity almost everyone would fulfil it. Tiger is no exception. He had the chance to fulfil it. So what? He didn’t do anything what anyone would have done in place in this porn filled world. A porn star claiming pregnancies thro’ Tiger? We got to believe that! C’mon give me a break! GOD knows-apart from Tiger himself- how much truth in all these claims. Friends disappointed? What a crap! Deep inside his real friends know him well inspite of public comments. Remember, Tiger never had affairs. He only hired people (I am sure they were handsomely paid) for either his pleasures or get releived which, were circumstatials. No doubt, Tiger loves his family. Leave him/them alone to fix his problems and come to this world to remove the financial pinch that everybody feels.

    Hey Judy,
    The sooner he comes out of hiding and publically faces the shame and guilt of his infidelity, the quicker the end will come to this sad story. Get a grip Tiger and stop swinging and start swinging.

    Unfortunately the Tiger Woods story will never end . It will have the same stigma that attached to O.J. Simpson after he was found ” innocent ” of killing two people by slashing their throats. Tiger is damaged goods because he was a public figure that not only was the best golfer in the world , but he also was held in high esteem as a family man and a man of virtue . Nothing could be farther from the truth .
    Sorry , but anybody who thinks Tiger is coming back is sadly mistaken . He’s through !
