Tiger who?

Elin Nordegren on Saturday graduated atop her class after a nine-year college career — and then educated her audience with some rare, albeit veiled, comments about her ex, the world’s greatest golfer.

It was a rare display of public candor from the former Swedish model, who graduated with a 3.96 GPA from Rollins College’s Hamilton Holt School in Winter Park, Fla.

In her commencement address, she told her 300 classmates that night school offered her a “place of peace in the wild storm of my personal life.”

"who earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology

In other Nooos, whatshername saddles herself with 100K in student debt, wastes monumental amount of time and effort to get 3.96 GPA in useless "idiots degree". (Yes, I know rich people tend not to get saddled with student loans).

“Atop” her class? NY Post has a fevered imagination.

I think the question is how could she be so stupid?

Well, the answer is, she wasn’t.

It’s called digging gold and she hit a rich vein.

re: graduated atop her class after a nine-year career

from the article:
“After marrying Woods in 2004, she at times took one class per semester and took three major breaks — two for the births of her children, one for divorce.”

I confess I came onto this thread to see how many posts it would take before Elin was called a less than complimentary name. The over/under is always 5.

Post 6 (the 5th response). A winner.

Somehow the gold digger is always the woman going after the bucks, never the man who wants to have the prettiest woman on the planet on his arm.

LOL.

“place of peace in the wild storm of my personal life.”

That doesn't sound like a swipe at her ex. Yes, it's a reference to the crap she went through but there's nothing personal or specific about Tiger Woods in it. Is she supposed to never mention what she went through in any way?

She is one of the most gorgeous things ever.

I love looking at her and I am a woman. (don't mean that weird, just she's perfection)

Those damn Swedes. (:

Do you consider all who marry wealthy individuals “gold diggers”?

I apologize for my earlier remark, as I did not even read the piece. Don’t keep up on the celebrity stuff, so I was thinking this was one of Tiger’s many girlfriends. Should have kept my opinion to myself. Times like this make me wish that FR had an edit function.

I read the article and didn’t see much of a swipe at Tiger. The media stinks.

No.

Why would you think that?

I’m referring to this person, the subject of the article.

So why exactly is she a gold digger when others are not?

Do you think she knew that Woods was a serial adulterer before they were married?

I didn’t address anyone else.

She married a very wealthy person who was a jock.

She made her money. She did very well for herself.

I am sure they both married each other for their brains and personalities.

And her kids. The kids have to now grow up knowing that their father shafted their Mom over and over again. Because of the rejection she deserves the $. That is not gold digging.

Wife gets half. That’s how it is.

Don’t have illusions about her purity or motives.

Glorified nanny gets $250 million and never had to sink one putt. Yeah Tiger banged a few dozen ho’s during the marriage, but she doesn’t deserve half. You telling me she couldn’t live on $50 mill?

His fault for marrying her. You always hold the trump card in your hand.

“Somehow the gold digger is always the woman going after the bucks, never the man who wants to have the prettiest woman on the planet on his arm.”

Well, it’s the “gold” thing. The guy has the gold and the gal has other “assets.” She’s was a trophy wife, someone to enhance Tiger’s “all-American” image so he could get better endorsements.

If he wasn’t rich, she wouldn’t have been interested, and if she wasn’t beautiful, she wouldn’t have been anything more than a fling. I’m not suggesting there wasn’t some real affection between them, but they’re a power couple, not Ozzie and Harriet. She was a little naïve to expect Tiger to change his stripes.

However, we know quite blatantly about the bad boy's purity and motives.

She’s coming out with her own line of clubs....Their slogan is “Finally, clubs you can beat Tiger with.”
