While Tiger Woods is preparing to return to golf at the Masters in Augusta, Ga., on April 8, his wife Elin Nordegren must decide whether to attend the tournament, in what would be a very public display of support for her husband.
And that’s just the scenario Tiger’s camp would like to see happen, according to a source close to Nordegren.
“Elin does not want to go to the Masters and is preparing for a trip to see her family and friends in Sweden,” the source tells PEOPLE. “She is also being asked by Tiger to attend the Masters, even if for a half day, to look like she is interested in supporting his return to golf. But she would rather not be there.”
Instead, the source believes that Nordegren will continue to keep a low profile and fly a commercial airline to Sweden, where her family lives.
“Tiger’s [private] plane is too ‘in your face’ for her now,” the source says. “She really does not want to go to Augusta, and it is easier for her to be far away than home in Orlando.”
