Well Tiger, there's no easy way to get out of this conundrum. Your actions and conduct over the last few years are going to cost a lot money.

Elin is approaching a settlement worth $750,000,000 and an $80,000,000 mansion.

That's almost $1 billion.

Absolutely absurd. 

I guess when cheating and affairs are on the table and marriage has been past the point of no return, this is where it leaves Tiger Woods.

Tiger is one of the greatest golfers to ever play the game, and hopefully finalizing this will help him move on as he tries to win his first golf tournament since this all came out.

Through statements, press conferences, and media attention, can't this Tiger Woods story just be put to the rest?  Let the man get on with his life and try and do what he has been chasing his entire life: Jack Nicklaus's record of eighteen major championships.

Aside from the money that Tiger is forking over, he is not allowed to introduce any of his girlfriends to his children, only if or when he chooses to get married again.  Unfortunately for Elin, she is not permitted to write and sign a book deal about the ordeal.

Poor her, she won't have any extra few millions to do some type of tell all about how this relationship spiraled out of control.  I could care less—she sure has a unbelievable amount of money for the rest of her life.

Sure, Tiger Woods has won a ton of money and earned endorsement deals, but $900,000,000 is downright crazy to think that's what he is settling at after cheating on her.

This brings cost in a divorce case to a new level.  There has to be some sort of confidentiality clause in the agreement so that at least Tiger can pay Elin to keep quiet on whatever went on between the two of them.

They have their family, and that is none of the public's business.

Let them live their lives too; they are human beings.

For Tiger, let's just hope this is a new beginning as he tries to become a better man and forget about the past. 

When this divorce is officially a done deal, it will go down as one of the largest settlements in history.  This is a tall price to pay, but let it end what has been a long seven months for Woods and his family.
