Tiger Woods may be mastering Augusta after a tormented layoff from golf, and has slowly worked to master Florida real estate in Orlando and Palm Beach.
The record-breaking golfer has been based in Florida as a professional, but mainly for the weather and plethora of golf courses. Woods has been very active in Florida real estate, purchasing two homes near Orlando, with two currently under construction in Jupiter. The homes are worth more than $50 million combined.
Woods has made a few purchases in Orlando, where he lives primarily, and another in a massive knockdown and rebuilding of an 11,000-square-foot home on tony Jupiter Island, at the north end of Palm Beach County, the latter apparently influenced by his wife’s Swedish heritage and a bustling local Swedish community.
According to Orange County, Fla. property appraiser records, Woods owns two homes in Windermere, Fla. at the Isleworth development, with one listed under his original (though since formally changed) name Eldrick Woods with his wife, Elin, and another listed jointly for himself and his late father, Earl Woods.
