Tiger expecting second child.
Mr. Eldrick Woods has been out after his memorable win at the U.S. Open in June. However, his injury has been a blessing in disguise as he gets to spend more time with his first child, Sam, and also welcome a new member into his family late winter.
Even with his golf done for the year, Tiger Woods found something to celebrate Tuesday: His wife is pregnant with their second child.
Woods said on his website that Elin is expecting in late winter without being more specific on a due date.
He has not played since his U.S. Open victory in June, and two weeks later had reconstructive surgery on his left knee that put him out for the year. Woods' first child, daughter Sam, was born the Monday after the 2007 U.S. Open.
"Elin is feeling great and we are both thrilled," Woods said. "While my injury has been disappointing and frustrating, it has allowed me to spend a lot of time watching Sam grow. I can't begin to tell you how rewarding it is being a dad and spending time with her and Elin.
"The injury has been a blessing and a disappointment."
Woods had said after he married in 2004 that he wanted more than one child. Woods was an only child, while Elin has a twin sister.
The world watched Tiger break down to tears after his win at the British Open in 2006, the first tournament he won after his father's passing. Now he is a father himself and it is great to see him start his own family. Can't wait to see him back on tour to win more tournaments and majors.
