Elin Nordegren is living proof that time heals all wounds.
The recent Rollins College graduate opens up about her new life without Tiger Woods in People's June 2 issue. "I have moved on, and I am in a good place," the 34-year-old mother of two tells the magazine.
Indeed she is. Nordegren graduated with a 3.96 GPA, earning her the Class of 2014's top honor, the Hamilton Holt Outstanding Senior Award. Upon learning that she would be required to speak at the commencement ceremony, the press-shy blond admits she was "scared" to speak in public. "I have been called a 'woman with no words' in the media and criticized for not talking very much," she says.
During her speech, Nordegren made a few jokes at Woods' expense. Still, she insists they're A-OK.

Regarding her ex-husband, she says, "Our relationship is centered around our children, and we are doing really good—we really are. He is a great father." Nordegren is also supportive of the golfer's 15-month-long relationship with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn. "I'm happy for Tiger," she says. "In general, in any kind of stepparent relationship, I'm happy that there's somebody else loving my children."
Nordegren is currently dating coal magnate Chris Cline, 55, and recently moved into a new Floridian mansion. Perhaps because of the insatiable interest in her personal life, she declines to say much else. "Chris and I, since we've been close, have decided not to talk about our relationship," she explains.
Whether marriage and more children are in her future, Nordegren plays it coy. "I think I would like that. Yeah," she tells People. "But I have a boy and a girl, and I couldn't ask for anything more. I feel like I'm in a great spot—great if it happens, great if it doesn't."
