Tiger Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren are expecting their second child in mid-winter, he announced on his Web site Tuesday.
“This has been a year of contrasts,” Woods, 32, wrote. “I had a solid start to the season, won the U.S. Open in an exciting playoff, and then unfortunately had to shut it down after successful knee surgery.
“And now, I have some wonderful news to report. Sam is going to be a big sister.” (Woods and Nordegren welcomed daughter Sam Alexis Woods in June 2007.)
“Elin is feeling great and we are both thrilled,” Woods went on. “While my injury has disappointing and frustrating, it has allowed me to spend a lot of time watching Sam grow. I can’t begin to tell you how rewarding it is being a dad and spending time with her and Elin.
“The injury has been a blessing and a disappointment.”
