Elin Nordegren, Graduation


Elin Nordegren, the ex-wife of Tiger Woods, graduated from Rollins College with a bachelor's degree in psychology and a 3.96 GPA on Saturday.

She was also chosen to give a commencement speech, as she had earned the Hamilton Holt Outstanding Senior Award—the top honor for her class. 

And in her address, Nordegren couldn't help but take a few subtle jabs at the golfer.

"When I entered my student advisor office in the fall of 2005, I was 25 years old, I had just recently moved to America, I was married without children. Today, nine years later, I'm a proud American, and I have two beautiful children," Nordegren told the crowd.

She then added, "But I'm no longer married," as the audience laughed.

While the 34-year-old graduate never actually mentioned Woods by name in her speech, she did allude to their divorce and all the infidelity drama surrounding it.

"It was right after I had taken Communication and the Media [class], I was unexpectedly thrust into the media limelight," she said. "I probably should have taken more notes in that class."

Nordegren, who first started taking college courses at Rollins in 2005, took a semester off after the birth of each of her children, and again in 2010 following Woods' cheating scandal.
