Source: Elin doesn't want to attend Masters

Posted: 11:54 AM ET

( - While Tiger Woods is preparing to return to golf at the Masters in Augusta, Georgia, on April 8, his wife Elin Nordegren must decide whether to attend the tournament, in what would be a very public display of support for her husband.

And that's just the scenario Tiger's camp would like to see happen, according to a source close to Nordegren.

"Elin does not want to go to the Masters and is preparing for a trip to see her family and friends in Sweden," the source told PEOPLE. "She is also being asked by Tiger to attend the Masters, even if for a half day, to look like she is interested in supporting his return to golf. But she would rather not be there."

Instead, the source believes that Nordegren will continue to keep a low profile and fly a commercial airline to Sweden, where her family lives.

"Tiger's [private] plane is too 'in your face' for her now," the source said. "She really does not want to go to Augusta, and it is easier for her to be far away than home in Orlando."

I don't blame her since THE MEDIA MADNESS has publicized what was a private matter into mainstream news. Every BATTERED WOMAN & RACIST are waiting to tear her down and tell her what she should do. If she decides to stay in her marriage it wouldn't be pretending "to look like she is interested in supporting his return to golf". Of course she would be interested even if they were to get a divorce tomorrow. You think its something easy to forget? Its as much a part of her life than his.........I still don't understand why we're not talking about Charlie Sheen's threat to cut his wifes throat.......Or why there's not weekly discussions on THE POPE pointing fingers at Ireland and didn't mention Germany where there's also sexual abuse stories. Why are people supporting Roman Polanski's child abuse on a minor that he drugged and raped......hmmmmmm.....I keep repeating the same thing to........does it make a difference?

I think she has so much class. I respect Elin so much. I can understand how hard the whole porn star, coctail waitress mistress fiasco would make her disgusted in Tiger. Knowing that her husband had infidelities with such low class women would certainly be humiliating for her. I don't know how she could ever let her husband touch her again without vomiting or having her skin crawl. For her to show up at a venue like the Masters with the notoriety this event will garner is beyond her dignity. She has my admiration for the way she has handled this very traumatic situation.

I don't blame her for not wanting to attend if this is true. But if I were in her shoes, I'd probably attend just to be "in your face" toward the other women with whom he's been involved.

Good for her. I can't imagine she has made her final decision as to whether she will stay in the marriage or not. So...why would she stand up in front of the world to be her husband's supporter? She owes that man nothing. If he wants to go back to golf, that's his call. It has absolutely nothing to do with her. He made some pretty big boy decisions on his own and now he can stand out there like a big boy all by himself.

Give her time to heal.
A woman needs lots of time to mend a broken heart.
You ca'nt force love as a show. It ca'nt be switiched on and off readily,.

A good and smart decision by her.

Why would she want to expose herself and the children to the flesh eating PAPARAZZI

She has done nothing wrong, and refusing to attend Tigers return to golf is a smart and intelligent thing to do.
