Tiger and Elin were both present at Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, Florida earlier today for the execution of their divorce agreement ... this according to court officials.

The divorce docs do not reveal details about the split -- and the terms of the settlement were not disclosed.  But as TMZ first reported, Elin is set to receive $100 million from Tiger.

Elin's lawyers released the following statement on behalf of the couple: "We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future."

The statement continues, "While we are no longer married, we are the parents of two wonderful children and their happiness has been, and will always be, of paramount importance to both of us."

"Once we came to the decision that our marriage was at an end, the primary focus of our amicable discussions has been to ensure their future well-being. The weeks and months ahead will not be easy for them as we adjust to a new family situation, which is why our privacy must be a principal concern."

Gloria on Tiger Divorce:

He Broke a Lot of Hearts

8/23/2010 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gloria Allred is weighing in on the news Tiger Woods' divorce is finalized.

0823_gloria-tiger_EX_TMZ-02
She tells TMZ: "Tiger Woods’ marriage appeared to be over long before it became final today. He has broken his wife’s heart and the hearts of many others. His apparent lack of honesty in his relationships doomed his marriage and caused a break that could not be repaired. I wish the best for Tiger’s children, Elin and Tiger as they all start a new chapter in their lives."

Allred continues, "Tiger can begin again but he should never forget the human wreckage that he has left behind and the fact that he has still not been fully accountable for the suffering that he has inflicted on women."

Tiger Banner Pilot:

I Was Grounded

by the FBI

6/23/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The pilot who flew the "Tiger: Are You My Daddy?" banner over the US Open golf tournament last weekend was supposed to make a second run -- but dude claims the FBI shut down the flight.

TMZ obtained the post-flight report filed with the sky banner company, in which the pilot states that while en route to fly sign #2 -- which read, "Happy Father's Day Tiger LOL" -- he was contacted by a tower controller with a message from the FBI.

According to the pilot, the FBI had "strongly urged" him to "depart the area" over the golf course as soon as possible ... and, of course, the pilot obliged.

We spoke to the owner of the company hired to fly the planes – who told us he is looking into the incident and has no idea why the FBI would intervene on such a matter.  We also spoke to the FAA – who tells us the FBI would only intervene if “criminal activity” was suspected. 

As for the FBI, we called them for comment as well -- but we're still waiting to hear back. Apparently they have bigger things to worry about.

Tiger Woods Banners

Fly the Skies ... Again!

6/20/2010 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Those pesky banners that taunted Tiger Woods at the Masters are set to return today as he tries to win the U.S. Open this afternoon.

The banners -- which had such delightful phrases as "TIGER DID YOU MEAN BOOTYISM" and "SEX ADDICT? YA, RIGHT. SURE. ME TOO!" -- were commissioned by an anonymous person back in April.

Ted from NationalSkyAds.com says he has been hired to fly two banners over Pebble Beach today. The first will say, "TIGER: ARE YOU MY DADDY?" and the second will read, "HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TIGER LOL."

Tiger tees off around 2:05 PM PT. He could also tee off at around 2:10 if the banners fly over.

Sex Addict, Yes

Doping, No

5/16/2010 4:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0516-tiger-woods-getty-reg-creditTiger Woods' former swing coach says Woods underwent treatment for sex addiction during his five-month absence from golf, this according to an interview with The Golf Channel.

Hank Haney, who split from Woods earlier this week, also said he saw no signs that Woods ever took performance-enhancing drugs -- an allegation that has hounded Tiger over the years.

Haney said, "The only thing that I knew about was his issue with the sex addiction."

The full interview airs tonight at 6:00 PM.

Tiger Mistress Claims Wacky Balls Hurt Women

2/3/2010 4:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

One of Tiger Woods' alleged mistresses is trying to grab a golf businessman by the balls, claiming his little round guys are encouraging violence towards women ... the perfect case for power-attorney Gloria Allred.

Tales of the Tiger Woods

The woman at the center of the situation is Joslyn James -- a former porn star who claims she had an affair with Woods.

James is raising hell over a set of novelty golf balls that each prominently feature a cartoon face of one of Tiger's alleged mistresses (somehow they all fit in one box).

Obviously the balls were intended to be played with. And James -- whose smiling face is featured on one of the balls -- is concerned the product sends the wrong message.

Allred -- the ultimate defender of women's rights -- is fired up and will hold a news conference around 3pm EST today. You know we'll be there -- livestream ready to go.
