People do crazy things following a separation such as burning notes, throwing away clothes, ripping apart pictures, weeping themselves to sleep, excessively exercising, overeating or even fasting. In Elin Nordegrens case, she decided to burn $12.3 million on a mansion to ease her pain. I guess when you’re worth a 100 mill after a divorce, the whole “moving on process” operates on a whole other level. Recently, she found herself dissatisfied with her massive home in North Palm Beach, FL and decided to take a wrecking ball to it and tear it to smithereens. She will be replacing her old home with a new mansion built from scratch. This is probably a good investment for Elin Nordegren because she is pretty good at landing “on the green”.

A dozen years ago, one of golf's greatest seasons started with a bang when Tiger Woods overcame Ernie Els in an unforgettable playoff at the opener in Maui.
That, sadly, was the high-water mark for the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, which has been in steady decline since.

That was quick. The holiday season wasn't even over -- and some year-end recaps had yet to publish -- before some players started packing their golf bags and heading to Hawaii to begin the 2012 PGA Tour season.
We're just days (day!) away from the first swings of the 2012 PGA Tour season, and so it's time to get in our last-minute predictions, guesses, estimates and prognostications. We continue with a look at Tiger Woods, and what might we get from the 36-year-old.
It used to be easy to predict what Tiger Woods might do. If he was leading he'd win. If he was trailing he would...
There are times when divorce forces people to do strange things. Burn sheets. Throw out clothes. Toss rings into the ocean. But when you get $100 million in your divorce, you can trump just about anything and that's what happened with Tiger Woods' ex-wife when she bought a $12 million home and bulldozed the whole thing.

With the exception of Hank Haney leaving Tiger Woods' camp a couple years back, you rarely hear of golf instructors parting ways with star clients -- especially when the new season is only a couple days away.
But in one of the more interesting stories of the early season, instructor Randy Smith decided to do just that, parting ways with Gary Woodland, after the 27-year-old golfer...
It's 2012! And while we may or may not be close to the end of humanity as we know it, we're certainly at the end of the golf offseason. (Comparable, right?) Listen in as Devil Ball's Jay Busbee and Shane Bacon weigh in on predictions for 2012, from sponsorship to Tiger Woods to the majors. How will this season go? Will it rank among the all-time greats?
