Tiger Woods is making his golf comeback this week but it’s coming at the expense of his marriage, is reporting exclusively.

The golfer’s headline-making return to the Masters has come at a steep personal cost – his wife is furious and their marriage is getting worse not better says a source who knows both of them.

“There’s a reason why Elin didn’t go to the tournament and it’s simple,” the source told exclusively. “She thinks he’s breaking his promise to her by returning to golf so soon. And as every day goes by she gets a little angrier.”

The couple fought about his golf return a few weeks ago when he first told Elin, the source revealed. “And since then she has been ice cold to him,” the source said.

“Not only did she refuse his request to go to the tournament but she also has moved away from him emotionally.”

It’s been a long, slow process for Tiger and Elin as they try to heal their marriage in the aftermath of his secret cheating life becoming known to her. But Elin was trying and at one point about a month ago they even hugged outdoors and he gave her a kiss on the cheek.

“That was when things peaked,” said the source, who sees them on a regular basis. “They are not living in the same house and Elin has grown very cold.

“In fact now when she drops the kids off to his house, sometimes she has a nanny take them inside. Other times she will ring the bell and when Tiger answers, give him the children but not go inside.

As was first to report Elin has taken two overnight trips away from Tiger recently. The first was to Palm Beach where she stayed on the couple’s yacht with the children. The second was to South Florida where she watched a tennis tournament and spent several nights away from Tiger.

“Elin thinks if Tiger rushed his golf comeback then all he was interested in was getting back to where he was and she doesn’t want to go back to where they were,” the source said.

“There were so many other women, so many years of betrayal, of Tiger living a lie. Elin has to learn to trust him again and that is not happening.

“In fact, his return to golf has made her trust him less.”

Elin, who is normally an extremely upbeat person, has been more uptight and in bad moods the past several weeks, says the source. “There’s no question it’s all directed toward Tiger. She barely goes near him most days. He’s going to have to do something drastic to improve things.”
