Woods’ mother-in-law released from hospital

Tiger Woods’ mother-in-law has been released from an Orlando-area hospital after being treated for stomach pains.


Health Central Hospital spokesman Dan Yates said Barbro Holmberg was released on Tuesday, about 11 hours after she was admitted.

Holmberg returns to mansion

She went back to Woods’ mansion.

Emergency crews had been summoned to the home when someone there called the emergency phone number about 2.35am on Tuesday.


Holmberg, who arrived in the US a few days ago, was taken by ambulance to Health Central.

She lives in Sweden and is the mother of Woods’ wife, Elin.

Health Central is the same hospital where Woods was treated after he crashed his sport utility vehicle outside his home in the gated Isleworth community in Windermere last month.

Woods fined

The Florida Highway Patrol last week cited Woods for careless driving and fined him $US164 ($A180).

The accident – and Woods’ refusal to answer questions about it – fuelled speculation about a possible dispute between him and Elin.

Reports of affairs

Just days before the crash, a National Enquirer story alleged Woods had been seeing a New York nightclub hostess, Rachel Uchitel, who has denied it.

After the crash, Us Weekly reported that a Los Angeles cocktail waitress named Jaimee Grubbs claims she had a 31-month affair with Woods.

Woods releases statement

Last week, Woods issued a statement saying he had let his family down with unspecified “transgressions” that he regrets with “all of my heart.” He did not elaborate.

A police report on the crash released on Monday showed that a Florida trooper who suspected Woods was driving under the influence sought a subpoena for the golfer’s blood results from the hospital he was taken to after the crash, but prosecutors rejected the petition for insufficient information.

A witness, who wasn’t identified in the report, told trooper Joshua Evans that Woods had been drinking alcohol earlier.

The same witness also said Woods had been prescribed two drugs, Ambien and Vicodin.

The report did not say who the witness was but added it was the same person who pulled Woods from the vehicle after the accident.

Woods’ wife, Elin, has told police that she used a golf club to smash the back windows of the Cadillac Escalade to help her husband out.

His injuries were minor.
