PALM BEACH GARDENS — It’s been nearly two years since top British golfer Lee Westwood and his pixie wife Laurae split, and the pair are finally going to take their uber-contentious divorce to court in Palm Beach County.
Westwood, who replaced Tiger Woods as the world’s No. 1 golfer for a few months in 2010, hasn’t shown similar skills in his personal life.
The former Masters runner-up was linked to model Helen Storey less than a month after his 2015 split from Laurae, his wife of 16 years and the mother of his two children.
What’s the old saying about hell hath no fury?
Westwood is believed to be worth around $45 million and a judge trial is scheduled to decide of the financial split September 25 through September 27 in a West Palm Beach courthouse.
Expect to hear all the nasty details about how Westwood allegedly tried to hide millions@.
One of the issues in play include the brand-new house he briefly shared with Laurae at 12235 Tillinghast Circle at the Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens, which has been for sale for two years.
The 10,000 square-foot-mansion, with a view of the 14th fairway, was originally listed for $10.9 million. who’d turn up with $8 million could buy it today.
Laurae and Westwood met in 1995. She is the sister of Scottish Ryder Cup golfer Andrew Coltart.
