Douglas Murray and Elin Nordegren

After her super duper justified divorce from Tiger Woods, you could understand why Elin Nordegren might be looking for a stay-at-home type in her next relationship.

San Jose Sharks' defender Douglas Murray just so happens to be that type. And if the Swedish gossip site Expressen is to be believed, Nordegren has noticed; the two are reportedly dating. From Showbiz Spy:

Elin and Doug were spotted together last week at Rose Nightclub in Stockholm where eyewitnesses said they were hugging and being affectionate with each other.

Elin and Doug had dinner at the beginning of July with Swedish pro golfer Jesper Parnevik — who is also said to have played matchmaker for Elin and Tiger.

Nordegren has to have some serious courage to trust Parnevik a second time. If Murray doesn't work out, she needs to never listen to him again.

According to Murray, the pair aren't together. "We are only friends," Murray told Expressen. "We are not dating and we have never dated. We have friends in common and we have only known each other for a couple of weeks."

Yeah, OK, sure. Moving on.

Before you get it into your heads, Murray is not the first person to date Nordegren since her split from Tiger Woods. According to this gossip magazine I sometimes read at the dentist, Jamie Dingman braved that frontier before the two broke up in May of 2011.

A source tells Us Weekly that the ex-wife of Tiger Woods, who began dating wealthy finance investor Jamie Dingman in early 2011, has called things off with her beau.

"He's a really fun, exciting guy and she needed that, but she wants someone more stable for the kids now," the source says. "She's back to casually dating."

Well, good call on going with Murray then, because guys don't get much more stable than he is. At 6-3, 240 pounds, the man is practically an immovable object.

They have a lot in common too. Both are Swedish. Both are 32. Both only pick up a golf club when something's gone wrong. Plus, by dating a Shark, Nordegren doesn't have to worry that the guy's personality will be poisoned by a steady stream of championships.
