Tiger’s wife eyes full custody, half of his $600M ; After Shopping at Costco, Tiger, Buds Off to the Bahamas

from www.nypost.com – A humiliated Elin Nordegren reportedly wants full custody of her two kids with Tiger Woods — convinced that the philandering golf great’s subpar maturity makes him an unfit dad.

The couple has two children — Sam, 2, and Charlie, 10 months — and their welfare is Nordegren’s top priority, according to London’s News of the World.

“She wants 100 percent divorce, 100 percent custody of the children, and half of everything. And she won’t be changing her mind,” a confidant of the Swedish stunner told the British tab.

The hard-line stance stems from Woods’ refusal to seek help for his twin addictions to sex and pills, the paper reported.

“Tiger was supposed to be working on getting better, and he hasn’t done anything,” said Nordegren’s pal. “Elin is livid that he hasn’t checked into rehab and gotten himself off his drugs. He’s acting like a big baby.”

Nordegren — who has hired high-powered Hollywood divorce lawyer Sorrell Trope to shoot for as much as half of Woods’ estimated $600 million fortune — plans to spend Christmas in seclusion with the kids.

Woods will ring in an Elin-less New Year surrounded by an entourage of his closest baggage handlers, sources told The Post.

And the party could be floating now. People magazine reported last night that Woods and his pals stocked up at Costco over the weekend and set sail on his yacht, Privacy, to the Bahamas.

For years, Team Tiger — an insular group of Woods-approved yes men — has kept his secrets and covered his tracks. The enablers include:

* Longtime wingman Bryon Bell. He’s known Woods since seventh grade and has vacationed with him and Nordegren. He’s also lined up “models” for Woods through Hollywood madam Michelle Braun, she has said.

* Jerry Chang, Woods’ BFF since their days as Stanford University golf teammates. The PGA Tour sidekick hooked Woods up with Tina Trahan, who for years arranged for hotties to meet him at Vegas parties, sources told The Post.

* Rugged New Zealander Steve Williams, Woods’ caddie and confidant since 1999. When the scandal broke, the ever-loyal Williams claimed to have no knowledge of his pal’s serial sexcapades.

* Mark Steinberg, a former college basketball player who’s been Woods’ agent since 1998. He is believed to have been the one who gave Woods the disastrous p.r. advice to just blow off investigators after his SUV crash ignited the scandal.
