In the Jan. 17 episode, Tiger Woods’ 45-year-old former mistress described what happened on Thanksgiving night 2009 when the golfer’s then wife, Elin Nordegren, discovered that the tabloid rumor about their affair was true.
One of the tabloid’s reporters had spotted her going to visit Tiger Woods’ room in a Melbourne hotel during the Australian Masters and – despite the couple’s best efforts – the magazine insisted on publishing the article.
At the time the secretly philandering golfer had a golden boy image. The father-of-two conspired with his mistress to convince Elin Nordegren that there was no truth to the story. He even put the two women on the phone with each other, according to the documentary.
Elin Nordegren and Rachel Uchitel had an extensive, 30-minute conversation, convincing her that she was not having a sexual relationship with Tiger Woods. They talked about how she knew Tiger Woods, how she knew his friends, how and why she was in Australia.
Elin Nordegren appeared to believe Rachel Uchitel and Tiger Woods and, two days later, Rachel Uchitel said she and the golfer wished each other a Happy Thanksgiving, relieved that they had gotten away with it.
But one night the phone rang. Rachel Uchitel answered saying something like, ‘Hey babe, I thought you went to sleep.’ And, instead of Tiger Woods’ voice, it was Elin Nordegren. And she said, ‘I knew it was you.’
