Tiger Woods has settled into his new bachelor pad, which comes in the form of a $60 million mansion on the exclusive Jupiter Island in Florida. In spite of taking a huge 9-figure loss with his divorce settlement from Elin Nordegren and another multi-million dollar hit from lost endorsements, it hasn't caused any downsizing on his part. And yes, his back yard is a golf course, saving him a daily commute and avoiding all the name-calling and bullying from other golf pros around Florida.

The once-happy couple actually designed this home together on prime Jupiter Island real estate in Florida. He bought the property for a whopping $40 million in 2006 and proceeded to demolish the existing mansion that was only 13 years old. He then spent another $20 million custom building what is now his ultimate bachelor pad/tiger den.
Not all the features of this massive spread are public knowledge which makes sense as it's 10,000 square foot home on a ten acre lot. It's so big, even if you asked Tiger, he probably couldn't tell you what they all are (or where he last saw the cocktail waitress he has staying over).
Speculation says that the basement has a massive wine cellar, games room and screening room, which has a glass-elevator to take you up to each floor. There are are a minimum 4 bedrooms, with the master bedroom having his-and-hers bathrooms (probably suggested by his lawyer). There is a separate guest house as well a a separate building as a garage.
What we do know is that the property contains an expansive sports and training facility. He has a high-end gym, tennis court, diving pool, a lengthy lap pool and a 100-foot running track. And yes, the obligatory back yard golf course. The golf course covers 3.5 acres and has 4 greens and 6 sand bunkers. It also has a video training center and a putting studio. Woods has said the longest club he can hit is a 7-iron, as long as the wind isn't blowing. He said he can hit shots out of his second-story studio as well. The icing on the cake is his boat dock, where you'll find his 155 foot yacht, suspiciously named "Privacy".
On that note, his ex-wife Elin Nordegren has settled down only 10 miles away in Florida, in a new Tiger-financed $12 million beach-front mansion.
