Tiger Woods and his wife are holed up in their Florida mansion and undergoing intense marriage counseling, according to reports.

As the scandal involving Woods's alleged extramarital affairs continues to develop, the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Woods, 33, and Nordegren, 29, are having marital counseling sessions – several times a day – in the privacy of their Windemere, Fla., mansion.

Both of their mothers have been in contact, the paper reports, to help the couple save their marriage, and Tiger's mom, Kultida Woods, is reportedly grateful that her son's two children – Sam Alexis, 2, and Charlie Axel, born in February – are too young to realize what is going on. "This story will be ancient history by the time they are old enough to learn about it," a source told the Sun-Times.

Meanwhile, according to the Daily Beast.com, Nordegren is negotiating an immediate $5 million payout from her husband and revising her prenup, reported at $20 million at the time of their 2004 marriage, to give her as much as $55 million if she stays with her husband for two more years.

And don't worry about the pair constantly running into one another at home in the gated community with a private golf course near Orlando: The 6,692 sq. ft., three-level house has 8 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms, and is valued at 2.648 million.

Woods hasn't been seen leaving the house since his one-car accident on Nov. 27. Nordegren, wearing sunglasses, was spotted driving away last Saturday to an undisclosed location, but returned home shortly after.
