Everyone knew that Bubba Watson bought a new house in Orlando's gated Islewood community and was in the middle of remodeling it but, what nobody knew was that it was his good friend Tiger Woods' old house.

It is the same property where Tiger and his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, had the Thanksgiving night spat which launched the Woods cheating scandal and began the golfer's descent in 2009. You might have heard about it.

"It's true," Watson told Yahoo! Sports about the infamous house where Elin chased Tiger with a golf club. "We closed last summer and we're moving in next Thursday or Friday."

Angie Watson is in Scottsdale, Ariz. with their adopted son Caleb and her parents while they get ready to move into what will become their primary residence. It was completely overhauled in the renovation.

"I looked at probably 50 houses before I looked at Tiger's," Watson said. "A lot of the houses there are old, and we ended up changing everything. We probably saved five percent of it. We built it all around Caleb. There are like three playrooms."

Watson, who shot a second-round 69 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship Friday, is joining a slew of pro golfers who have decided to live in Orlando-based gated communities. He cited a 2012 incident where the Masters champ and his wife were chased through traffic on their way home.

"We've seen things in the news — our world is crazy," Watson said. "And it's nice to have that piece of mind when we take walks or go outside.

"The golf course is really good, too, for me to practice," he added.

Watson — one of the really good guys in sports — deserves that piece of mind.

The new homeowners said they gutted everything inside the lakeside house but didn't knock it down.

If those walls that are still standing could only talk.

Tiger Woods Gets Ball Stuck in Palm Tree on Way to WGC-Cadillac Championship Win (Video)

Tiger's 17 birdies is personal best

Tiger Woods is always being compared -- unfavorably and probably unfairly -- to his younger self. The Tiger of 2000 has long been the gold standard, and the conventional thinking is that he won't ever be that good again. To be fair, no one may ever be that good again. But the 2013 version has done something through two days here on Doral's Blue Monster that the young stud...
