After a whirlwind few months plagued by scandal, Tiger Woods announced that he’ll return to the golf world at the Masters tournament in Augusta, Ga., on April 8. But will wife Elin Nordegren be by his side?
So far, a source tells PEOPLE that Nordegren will likely let her husband go solo when he returns to the links.
“Elin does not want to go to the Masters and is preparing for a trip to see her family and friends in Sweden,” a source close to Nordegren 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.”
