From the time of their marriage until Aug. 23, 2010, Elin Nordgren was also Mrs. Tiger Woods, sometimes called Elin Woods. Now that she's Tiger Woods' ex-wife, she's sticking with "Elin Nordegren."

Elin Nordegren is from Sweden, she dabbled in modeling in her younger days, and was introduced to Tiger Woods through fellow professional golfer (and Elin's fellow Swede) Jesper Parnevik. Nordegren was a nanny to Parnevik's children at the time she met Tiger. During her marriage to Tiger, Elin gave birth to two children.

Let's flip through some photos of Elin over the years on the following pages, and along the way we'll look back of her relationship with Tiger.

The Beginning

Elin Nordegren is pictured above at the 2002 Ryder Cup, one of the earlier events she attended as the girlfriend of Tiger Woods.

Nordegren and Woods met when they were introduced in mid-2001 by Jesper Parnevik. Like Parnevik, Nordegren is Swedish, and she and her sister were working as nannies for the Parnevik family.

At the 2004 Players Championship, Elin Woods was no longer Tiger's girlfriend, she was his fiance. And if you're going to get engaged to Tiger Woods, you better learn to love Nike Golf, too. Elin sports the "swoosh" on a Nike headband.

Model Looks

While Elin Nordegren was working as a nanny at the time she met Tiger Woods, she had also done some modeling - including some bikini modeling - back home in Sweden. She's not modeling in the image above, taken during the 2004 PGA Tour Mercedes Championship, although she certainly knows how to strike a pose.

Ponytail

It's much more common to see Elin Nordegren's blond tresses flowing free. But at the 2004 Dubai Desert Classic, a ponytail was the hairstyle of choice.

Horse racing seems to be associated with women wearing hats. At the Kentucky Derby every year, many women in attendance reach into the back of their closets for fancy hats.

At the 2006 Ryder Cup, the wives of American and European players, including Elin Nordegren, put on their best hats and headed to The Curragh race track for Wives Race Day.

Elin Nordegren often sports a glamourous look, even when just attending a golf tournament. On Day 3 of the 2009 Presidents Cup, she appeared a little dressed-down in the worn baseball cap, complete with patches of the American flag and the San Francisco Giants logo.

With Sam and Tiger

Tiger Woods was an honorary captain for the Stanford University football team in the Cardinal's big rivarly game against Cal in 2009. Elin Nordegren was there, as was the couple's daughter Sam.

This was their final public appearance prior to Tiger's fateful car crash just after Thanksgiving in November 2009. That accident led to revelations of Woods' infidelities, and, ultimately, to divorce. Tiger and Elin's divorce became official on Aug. 23, 2010.
