After a breakup, women go shopping and men apparently buy pimped out mansions. Right on the heels of his divorce from Swedish model wife, Elin Nordegren, Tiger Woods has done exactly that. The newly single Woods has taken out a $54.5 million mortgage on a Jupiter Island, Florida home. A gossip website has reported that Woods has filed the legal papers for his whopping mortgage on August 27th just 5 days after his divorce was finalized, and identified himself as “single” on bank documents.
Amenities of the rumored 10,000 square foot Jupiter Island splurge include an oxygen therapy room, swimming pools, a tennis court and a fitness center. The 34-year-old infamous golfer is aiming to pay off the mortgage by January 15, 2016 and construction on the 12 acre lot is set to finish up by next spring.
Florida’s Jupiter Island is in Martin County, about 100 miles north of Miami, is home to many of the country’s wealthiest people. Homes on this super elite island spare no expense and attract actors, singers and apparently more recently, cheating golfers. Tiger Woods’ new neighbors include Greg Norman, Celine Dion and Burt Reynolds.
Because the divorced pair is splitting custody of their children, ex-wife Elin Nordegren will be relocating to the area from Orlando where she is currently renting a home. Tiger Woods was rumored to be on New York City’s Hudson Street holed up in a luxury apartment.
