Tiger Wood‘s cheated wife Elin Nordegren returned from her two-day tennis escape late on Friday night and avoided all contact with her philandering husband, RadarOnline.com has learned.
As their embattled marriage continues to stall under further strain as Tiger prepares for a full-scale return to golf, Elin took the couple’s son Charlie, 13 months, to watch tennis at the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne.
She returned to their Windermere, Florida, mansion at around 9.30PM Eastern on Friday.
But according to a source, it was only to pick up 2-year-old daughter Sam – and Elin deliberately didn’t go inside.
“There was zero contact between Elin and Tiger,” explained the source.
“She had the nanny collect Charlie. She is still very cold toward him and took the two children back to her own house.”
Tiger is expected to leave for The Masters in Augusta, Georgia, late Saturday or Sunday.
He is scheduled to face the media in a pre-tournament press conference on Monday.
The Masters get underway later in the week, on Thursday.
As RadarOnline.com has reported, Elin is furious at Tiger’s imminent return to world golf, believing it is too soon after his adultery scandal exploded last November.
And as RadarOnline.com has revealed, Elin has walked in the past.
She stormed out three weekends ago after she and Tiger had an argument. She took the two children to his yacht, Privacy.
That same weekend, Tiger gave his first two interviews about his much anticipated return.
Despite speculation that Elin could attend the final round of the prestigious tournament if Tiger was to be in contention, it almost certain that she won’t, given the simmering tension between the pair.
“It’s important to Elin that she continues to build her own life and is doing so by exerting more independence,” dished the insider.
The source added the separation of Sam and Charlie this week was one of the first occasion’s the couple had intentionally split parenting duties of the children.
“It’s unusual,” the source said.
Woods was photographed with his daughter near his home.
He arrived to pick up little Sam from Premier Academy in the afternoon driving a black Cadillac Escalade – the same make and model he famously crashed outside his home in November when the scandal began.
At the same time, Elin was enjoying herself – and hours away from her husband.
