Woods wants Elin back, says report

TIGER WOODS' return to the golf course in Dubai has coincided with a National Enquirer report that he wants to reunite with his former wife Elin Nordegren.

The report claims he proposed to her over Christmas and offered he a ring. And supposedly Nordegren is considering the proposal, but has demanded a $350 million anti-cheating clause added to a pre-nuptial agreement.

Woods and Nordegren have two children but split when it emerged that Woods' had engaged in string of affairs and she subsequently attacked him with a golf club.

"The guy has never recovered from being dumped by Elin. He's dated lots of models and bimbos, but none of them were more than a one night stand," the National Enquirer's source said.

Since the divorce, Nordegren has dated billionaire Jamie Dingman and reportedly NHL player Douglas Murray.

In more mundane matters, Woods opened his account in the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship with an even par 72 after four bogeys and four birdies.

World No.1 Rory McIlroy, playing for the first time in competition with his new Nike golf clubs, had two double-bogeys en route to a three-over par 75 that left him trailing down in 62nd place.

The third member of the day's marquee grouping, three-times former winner at Abu Dhabi Martin Kaymer, bettered them both with a one under 69 that left him four shots off the early pace set by Jamie Donaldson of Wales. WIRES
