Tiger Woods, wife near divorce deal

Tiger Woods and his estranged wife, Elin Nordegren, are close to a divorce settlement, People magazine reports.

Sources told the magazine that Nordegren could get "about $700 million," an amount that's increased throughout the months of negotiations.

Woods' people, another source told People, offered Nordegren increasing settlement amounts, all of which are contingent on her silence. Nordegren has so far balked at any sort of confidentiality clause - not because she wants to blab, but because it's her biggest bargaining chip, the source said.

Although the golf legend does not want his soon-to-be ex-wife to give an interview about him, or write a tell-all about her life with him, another source told the magazine that much of the back-and-forth has been about child custody.

"Elin does not want Tiger to have female friends around when he has the children," the source said. "This is very important to her, and she will not give in to anything less."
