If you wanted to know what Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordgren would buy with her rumored $100 million-plus divorce settlement, here's the answer to your question: Nordegren has decided to buy a $12.2 million mansion. I know, I'm just as shocked as you are.

As Page2Live's Josie Lambiet reported on Friday, Nordegren new digs in North Palm Beach, Fla., are just 10 miles away from Woods' new place on Jupiter Island, meaning the two will be seeing a lot of each other in the future. Can you say awkward moments? The best part about Nordegren's mansion is that it reportedly "dwarfs" Woods' home by more than 7,000 square feet. Take that, Tiger!

The new 17,000 square foot home boasts eight bedrooms and, get this, a 4,700-square-foot basement. I actually heard she bought the house because the basement was big enough to house every sports blogger on the planet. So get ready, gentleman, we're going to be moving to a swankier crib in the coming months.

But that's not all ... the house also has something else to match her ex.

Like Woods' mansion, Nordgren's place is right on the beach, meaning she can go out and recreate the opening scene from Baywatch whenever she wants. I mean, that's the only reason you buy a place on the beach in the first place, right?

So congrats on the new home, Elin. Just remember to send me a invitation to your house warming party.
