Woman rushed to hospital from Tiger's house

A woman was rushed to hospital from the home of Tiger Woods today in the latest personal drama to hit the troubled golfer.

According to local station WESH-TV an emergency call was made to firefighters in Orange County, Florida, at 2.36am local time (7.36am GMT).

A middle-aged woman was later seen being admitted to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee.

It is the same medical centre that Woods was taken to after his early morning crash, an incident that led to a string of claims of affairs involving the married billionaire sportsman.

According to WESH-TV, the woman initially refused transport when medics arrived. But she was later listed as an advanced life support patient.

It is not thought that the person taken to hospital is Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren. It has been reported by US gossip websites that she moved out of the family home following the allegations of affairs.

Media scrutiny of the golfer’s private life has been intense since he crashed his car into a fire hydrant and tree in the early hours of November 27.

The incident left the 33-year-old bloodied and dazed, and raised questions over the circumstances leading up to the accident.

It has been speculated that reports of an affair with New York nightclub hostess Rachel Uchitel led to a confrontation with his wife shortly before he got into his SUV that morning.

Since the crash, a number of other women have come forward with claims of affairs with the golfer.

One, cocktail waitress Jaimee Grubbs, went as far as releasing a phone message reported to be from Woods asking her to cover up over the alleged affair.

Grubbs told US Weekly that she conducted a lengthy relationship with Woods shortly after the 2007 Masters – two months before Woods’ wife gave birth to their first child.

In the voicemail released by the magazine, a man says to Grubbs: “Hey, it’s, er, it’s Tiger. I need you to do me a huge favour.

“Um, can you please, er, take your name off your phone. My wife went through my phone. And, er, may be calling you.

“If you can, please, take your name off that and, um, and what do you call it just have it as a number on the voicemail, just have it as your telephone number. That’s it, OK. You gotta do this for me. Huge. Quickly. All right. Bye.”

Woods has not commented directly on the allegations.

But last week he apologised for letting his family down and said he was dealing with his “behaviour and personal failings”.

A statement posted on his website referred to “personal sins” and “transgressions”.

“I am not without fault and I am far short of perfect,” it added.
