$ can't buy love, might save Tiger's marriage

Nordegren gets $60M in pre-nup revision

IT'S amazing what a difference US$60 million can make, but is that sum enough to keep Tiger Woods and his wife, Elin Nordegren, together for another two years?

Following the last week of crazy-go-nuts reports about the golfer's infidelities, Woods and Nordegren have revisited their pre-nup agreement, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. And the changes they've allegedly made would give Nordegren the right to walk away from the marriage with nearly $60 million -- so long as she sticks with Woods for two more years.

When the couple married in 2004, their pre-nup stated that Nordegren would be entitled to US$20 million if they split after 10 years of marriage. According to the Sun-Times, that original pre-nup has since been rewritten so that Nordegren would take an extra $55 million if their marriage weathers a full decade.

Plus, the Daily Beast reports that Woods, whose fortune is estimated at close to US$1 billion, transferred US$5 million to his wife's personal account around the same time the pre-nup was revised.

The couple has been bunkered down inside their home, undergoing sessions with a marriage counsellor "several times daily," the Sun-Times reports, and various sources speculate that the revised pre-nup is a bid to preserve what remains of the Woods family's home life.

As for the alleged shenanigans that have led to more bad jokes than you've heard outside of seniors' day at the country club, there's plenty of headlines being generated about Woods' purported mistresses.

First up, Woods is rumoured to have offered Jaimee Grubbs -- the one who confessed to an affair earlier this week -- a job and a condo, RadarOnline reports. "From what she told me, he said she could stay there for free and sort of manage the property," one of Grubbs' former co-workers told the website. The snitch also says Grubbs also used to wear a red shirt to work when Woods was playing a tournament because it was "something special that they shared."

Another alleged mistress, Las Vegas nightclub manager Kalika Moquin, is denying affair rumours to Us Weekly. However, one of Us Weekly's sources says, "She was absolutely sleeping with him. She brags about it!"

As for Rachel Uchitel, the alleged mistress who previously denied the affair, she now tells TMZ she was lying about the denial. And, according to various outlets, it was her texts to Woods -- not Grubbs' -- that led to the argument between Woods and Nordegren that preceded him smashing up his SUV.
