Tiger Woods Wife May Be Fleeing to Faglaro Island, SwedenTiger Woods wife, who reportedly has moved out of the Woods’ Mansion, may flee to Faglaro Island, Sweden.

After a couple of brutal weeks in Florida, Tiger Woods’ s wife, Elin Nordegren, plans to escape to her native Sweden. If reports are to be believed – the latest on the Woods’ saga is that the golfer’s scorned wife has bought a 6 bedroom mansion on a small island near Stockholm, Sweden, called Faglaro Island.

The island — which is one of the many islands that make up the Stockholm archipelago, and is only 45 minute ferry from Vaxholm – the place where Nordegren grew up — has about 140 properties, mostly summer homes with only two of the homes being occupied year round. The property that Elin purchased, based on unconfirmed media reports,  is one of the largest on the island.

Nordegren became the owner of the mansion — which is reachable only by boat — on December 1, according to an Associated Press report that cited Stenake Johansson, Chairman of the Residential Association of Faglaro Island. Johansson told the paper that the Faglaro mansion was an old farm earlier and as it is big and well-built it can be used throughout the year.

It is not known if Tiger signed any paperwork in regards to the house purchase. Several Swedish papers reported last week that Nordegren bought the home for $2 million. Johansson however, could not confirm to AP the house’s reported price.

Tiger Woods, who has been under intense scrutiny and media focus for the past two weeks about his alleged extramarital affairs, released a statement Friday evening stating that he is taking an indefinite leave from golf to “concentrate on his family”.

It is not known whether the scandal-scarred couple, who have been married for five years and have a 2-year-old daughter and a 10-month-old son, plan to move in together.
