Elin Nordegren -- From Tiger to Puma?

12/16/2009 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

While Tiger Woods is losing sponsors left and right, TMZ has learned his wife, Elin Nordegren, is "very close" to signing a deal of her own ... and the company happens to be Nike's archenemy -- Puma.

An official from Puma -- the athletic wear company -- has confirmed they are in "internal discussions" to sign Elin as a spokesperson for a new Swedish-inspired clothing line called Tretorn.

The rep tells us Puma is after Elin because they feel she's "a good brand fit."

We could not reach Elin for comment.

It's not "called Tretorn"-- it's Tretorn the preppy sneaker of the 80s! Harvey, help me out. 80s kids represent

This whole story seems very much like the movie I saw tonight: "Gone With The Wind". Rhett Butler is Elin who should say to Tiger when he begs for her to stay, "Quite frankly, dear I don't give a damn"

Eat your heart out Tiger. You never loved this wonderful woman. Now you will be alone for the rest of your life chasing trash.

Good for her if this sponsor story is true. Why hang around with a guy that will be forever known as the "Mike Tyson" of the PGA.

If this is true, it is the stupidest revenge driven deal ever. Best case scenario, if they want to piss off Nike and get some cheap publicity points from the controversy, they'll pay her a million for the endorsement. Worst case scenario, they do that and Nike dumps Tiger's massive multi-year deal as a result and it ends up costing her and her children MANY millions of dollars in child and spousal support. Dumb. Very dumb.

look, burn Tiger as you may but the guy was just following his natural instincts. Man, by his very nature, is programmed to spread his seed far and wide; find as many mates as possible to ensure the propagation of his species.

OH SURE WE ALL FEEL so enlightened, so sure of ourselves that we have grown beyond our genetic makeup, but you know it's not true - your gut feeling is telling you it's not true. Your very nature is telling to you to tap that ass, and that ass, and that one too.

Sad by true.

Tiger FTW

Good timing for this announcement, as it will start to put the positive on things. However, the bad news for Tiger continues to add up, as here we have ANOTHER mistress named today: Theresa Rogers. That puts the list up around 15 at least.

What makes her a good brand fit? An ability to marry a wealthy athlete, or her experience performing oral service on an African American golfer? Cause if the latter is the case, there's a whole stable of bit**es who would also be a "good brand fit" for Puma
