Tiger Woods's ex-wife is trying to make another financial score seven years after she walked away from her marriage with the star golfer with $100 million, DailyMail.com can reveal. 

Elin Nordegren, 37, the mother of Woods's two children, has listed her beachfront townhouse just north of Palm Beach for $2.2 million. 

If she gets anything near that price, Nordegren will have doubled her money on what's obviously an investment property she never lived in.

The Swedish model bought the two-bedroom, three and a half-bathroom unit at the San Remo Townhouses, a small complex in the tiny beach resort town of Juno Beach, in May 2011 for $1 million.

According to public records, Nordegren sunk more than $100,000 into the three-story townhouse, according to a permit for a major renovation that included the shoring up of beams and columns.

In 2014, she plunked down another $100K for new flooring, fixtures, trims and closets in the 1,800-square-foot unit.

The description of the property also mentions top-of-the-line appliances and spacious bedrooms.

The mother of two is also conducting the sale without a realtor, which could save her more than $120,000 in commission.   

DailyMail.com contacted the unit's owner through the listing website, forsalebyowner.com, and Karen Hamer, Nordegren's assistant, returned the call.

She confirmed that the townhouse is for sale but declined comment when asked about Nordegren.

'No, no, no, I can't comment,' she said before hanging up.

Nordegren, who owns the apartment through a trust managed by Dennis Belcher, the lawyer who handled her bank-busting divorce from Woods, first listed the condo August 25 for $2.4 million. The price was changed three days later.

The condo is in a building built in 1975 and subdivided into 10 townhouses all facing the beach.

Most residents are elderly retirees from the Northeast who use them as winter homes. None of Nordegren's neighbors were home Monday and appear to have yet to move back for the winter.

In addition to the unit on the market, she owns another condo in the building that she bought in 2015 for $1.9 million, according to records, but it's not listed for sale.

Realtors in the area said Nordegren could get the money she is seeking.

'I think it's well worth what she is asking for,' said Rob Thomson, owner of Waterfront Properties. 'It's massively renovated with a designer who does most celebrity homes. And Juno Beach is in strong demand. It's a small town with its own police force and great security.'

Elin's main residence is a $20 million beachfront mega mansion in the gate community of Seminole Landing in North Palm Beach, a few miles away from the condo

Designer Lisa Peterson confirmed she decorated the townhouse after Nordegren asked her to make it look like a beach property.

'It was for her family when they come from Sweden to visit her,' Peterson said. 'She was very involved with the interior design and she wanted every detail just so. She was here every day working for us.'

In all, Nordegren used more than $25 million from her marital settlement with Woods to buy real estate in the Palm Beach area.

Woods and Nordegren were just shy of their sixth wedding anniversary at Thanksgiving 2009 when police were called to their Orlando home. Woods had smashed his car into a tree during what appeared to be a lover's spat.

Within days, stories about Woods cheating on Nordegren with dozens of strippers, waitresses, porn stars, lounge hostesses and groupies led to their divorce in mid-2010.
