Report: Tiger Woods moves to New York City

 

Perhaps Tiger Woods isn’t trying to lay low after all.

The newly divorced golfer, who’s still feeling the effects of his infamous sex scandal, is reportedly moving to Manhattan, the biggest stage in the world.

Woods, 34, moved into some downtown digs over the weekend, but exactly where is still unknown, according to an Us Weekly report Monday.

The magazine quoted an unnamed witness who saw Woods "introducing himself as the new neighbor."

The move apparently coincided with his participation in the nearby Barclays tournament in Paramus, N.J., over the weekend.

Woods’ spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.

Some New Yorkers said Monday that Woods will fit right in.

"What’s one more jerk for New York City? The city’s got enough of them already," said Peter Corvington, 31, of Brooklyn.

Other New Yorkers didn’t seem to care whether Tiger made his lair in Gotham but had some thoughts on where the golfer may be spending some of his fortune.

"Tiger Woods is free to live wherever Tiger Woods wants to live. It neither pleases nor upsets me in any way," said Neal Block, 30, of Park Slope. "I look forward to running into him at Scores."

Last week, Woods officially divorced from his wife of five years, Elin Nordegren, the Swedish model he cheated on with countless women, including waitresses and porn stars.

Nordegren, 30, allegedly walked away with $100 million of Woods’ money.

The divorce came nine months after Woods crashed his car into a tree following their Thanksgiving weekend blowup at their Orlando, Fla., estate. Nordegren denied reports she attacked Tiger that night.

The couple has two kids, 3-year-old daughter Sam and 18-month-old son Charlie.

"Good for Tiger Woods," said Alex Yakubov, 23, of Forest Hills. "I wish him luck. I wish he played better because he sucks now."
