    An unidentified woman was taken from golfer Tiger Woods' home in Windermere, Florida, by ambulance to a nearby hospital early in the morning, authorities said.

    "We responded to a medical call. A patient was transported," said Orange County Fire Rescue spokeswoman Genevieve Latham, who said the woman was transported by ambulance overnight.

    Latham declined further comment.

    But WESH-TV, a local station, showed footage of a blonde woman being taken on a stretcher into a hospital in Ococee, Florida, and the station said medics were called to Woods' home at 0236 local time (0736GMT) on Tuesday.

    Woods, the world's number one golfer, has been the focus of a media storm since he was injured in a minor car crash in the middle of the night outside his home late last month.

    The Florida Highway Patrol last week cited Woods for careless driving and fined him $164.

    He has since admitted to "transgressions" that apparently addressed allegations of marital infidelity.

    After the crash, Us Weekly reported that a Los Angeles cocktail waitress named Jaimee Grubbs claims she had a 31-month affair with Woods, who has two children with Swedish wife Elin Nordegren.
