(Newser) – Tiger and Elin's seemingly inevitable divorce draws closer: Sources say the pair is working to iron out custody and financial agreements before submitting the official paperwork. The couple want to quickly and quietly file for divorce once everything is finalized—good luck with that—and may even do so in Sweden, since Elin wants to return there with the kids, TMZ reports.

“Tiger and Elin will work out their entire divorce before making it public,” a source tells Radar, but the marriage will likely end before the year is up. “It’s Elin who is pulling the plug on the marriage,” the source adds. “She tried to put things back together,” but “Tiger’s return to golf made her unhappy. That’s when she grew cold toward him.” But will he get joint custody of the kids or not? Click here for details.
