      The Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren appeared in a Florida courtroom to finalize their divorce on Monday, nine months after a late-night car crash led to the discovery of multiple affairs.

      Nordegren’s lawyers wrote that the marriage was “irretrievably broken” in the divorce petition. After the hearing at Bay County Circuit Court in Panama City, Fla., the couple pleaded for privacy in a joint statement.  

      “We are sad that our marriage is over and we wish each other the very best for the future,” Woods and Nordegren said in the statement. “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.”

      The terms of the divorce were not disclosed. Documents obtained from the courthouse by TMZ.com said the couple had been separated “a substantial period of time” and a financial settlement had been worked out between the two in July.  

      Both Woods and Nordegren asked the judge to make the divorce final immediately. Under Florida law, there’s usually a 20-day waiting period for a dissolution of marriage request to become final.  

      “An injustice would result from the delay and the delay would generate unnecessary public attention, which would be adverse to the best interests of the parties’ minor children,” wrote Scott Cairns and Terry Young, the lawyers for Nordegren .

      Woods was introduced to Nordegren by PGA Tour golfer Jesper Parnevik, who employed Nordegren as a nanny. The couple married in October 2004 and had two children, Sam, 3, and Charlie, 1.  

      Nordegren has completed a four-hour parenting class, according to another filing. While Woods’ two children are listed, the documents didn’t spell out the custodial arrangement.
