“Ein has good friends in South Florida,” one source said recently. “She has spent time with them this year and she’s interested in moving to the area.

“It could be the perfect way to avoid big problems in the divorce. Tiger isn’t going to like it if she moves back to Sweden. And if she has any chance on Tiger not fighting her on the full custody issue, then he’s going to want to see his kids regularly.

“If Elin stays in the area that would be much easier.”

Elin has a one year deal on the rental house she moved into after Tiger’s cheating scandal was exposed. Moving to South Florida would put her only hours away from Tiger by car, a situation that could be acceptable to both.
