Elin Nordegren, the ex-wife of pro golfer Tiger Woods, is reportedly dating billionaire coal mining entrepreneur Chris Cline, the New York Post reported.

"Elin and Chris have been dating since the holidays," a source told The Post's celebrity gossip section "Page Six" on Tuesday.

The 33-year-old former Swedish model is two decades years younger than Cline, who is reportedly her neighbor in the exclusive North Palm Beach oceanfront community of Seminole Landing in Florida.

Following Nordegren's highly-publicized divorce from Woods in 2010, after the golf star's rampant infidelity came to light, Nordegren left their family home and built her current residence in Florida, The Post reported.

Cline, a West Virginia native, has a net worth of $1.2 billion, according to Forbes, which he earned through expanding his father's coal mining business.

A college dropout, Cline has been divorced twice and has four children from his previous wives.

Nordegren is worth an estimated $100 million, which she received from her divorce settlement with Woods. Nordegren and Woods were married for five years and have two children.

Since the divorce, Nordegren has also dated Swedish NHL player Douglas Murray and businessman Jamie Dingman.

A rep for Cline refused to comment on the rumored relationship.

Last June Cline was the victim of a bizarre extortion attempt, involving four other tycoons, including Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, Groupon co-founder Eric Lefkofsky, and Buffalo Sabres Owner Terry Pegula.

In the plot, a struggling actor, Vivek Shah, 25, allegedly attempted to extort $13 million from Cline after reportedly threatening to kill his family if the money was not delivered. Shah was subsequently arrested and charged with two counts of transmitting threatening communications in interstate commerce, among other charges, The New York Post reported.

Woods, meanwhile, is dating another tall blonde — Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn — according to sources close to the couple.

Last summer, Woods sold a California condo he previously shared with Nordegren, taking an $800,000 loss on the property. He also sold the Orlando home at the center of the Thanksgiving car accident and fight that began the unraveling of the Woods saga.
