New grad Nordegren: "I'm happy for Tiger"


After receiving her bachelor's degree earlier this month, Elin Nordegren explained in an interview with People Magazine that she is happy for her former husband, Tiger Woods, and his new girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn.

"Our relationship is centered around our children, and we are doing really good - we really are," Nordegren told the magazine in an interview that will appear in the June 2 issue. "He is a great father."

Nordegren and Woods were married from 2004 to 2010, and the couple have two children together. In the interview, the 34-year-old made it clear that she supports the new relationship between Woods and Vonn, who made their courtship known to the public last March.

"I'm happy for Tiger," Nordegren said. "In general, in any kind of step-parent relationship, I'm happy that there's someone else loving my children."

Nordegren gave a speech at the commencement ceremony at Rollins College in Orlando, Fla., earlier this month, where she received a degree in psychology after graduating with a 3.96 GPA. She is currently dating Chris Cline, a 55-year-old coal magnate, and the couple recently moved into a house in South Florida together.

"I have moved on, and I am in a good place," she said.
