Elin removes her wedding ring

TIGER WOODS' wife has removed her wedding ring spelling the end of their five year marriage. Just days after it was revealed ELIN NORDEGREN had planned to stay hitched to the golfer for the sake of their two children she was spotted out without her gold band and diamond engagement right (pictured  above).

The blonde beauty ventured out to take the couple's two children to a Christmas party in Florida on Saturday.

As she stopped for petrol it was clear she had taken off the rings she has worn throughout their five-year marriage.

As Elin was spotted it was revelaed that the couple were visited by the Florida Department of Children and Families earlier in the day.

According to reports acency workers and police called by to check on ‘the welfare of the children'.

Such house calls normally happen following domestic violence incidents.

A massive row at the couple's mansion is thought to have sparked the November car crash that exposed the star's rampant secret life.

Tiger, 33, has since announced he will take an indefinite break from golf in a bid to save his marriage and become a "better husband, father and person."

But reports - which are being fuelled by her removing her ring - say Elin is planning a divorce in the New Year.

A source said: "She's putting on a brave face but she's hurting terribly.

"Tiger is doing everything he can to save his marriage but I can't see them getting through this. The wounds are too deep."
