Kultida Woods, the mother of golfer Tiger, is heading to Florida to support her son with his current personal crisis.
Friends say the 65-year-old - who resides in Los Angeles - is desperately worried for her son amid various claims of his infidelity to wife Elin.
"She fears for his mental and physical health and wants him to know she is there," a source tells the Daily Mirror.
"She will be honest and will insist he faces his demons if he is to come through this in one piece."
Meanwhile, Jaimee Grubbs - one of Tiger's alleged mistresses - has apologised to the sportsman's wife.
"I couldn't describe how remorseful that I am to have hurt her family and her emotionally," the cocktail waitress says.
