The woman rushed to a hospital from Tiger Woods's Florida home was his mother-in-law, Barbro Holmberg, hospital spokesman Dan Yates confirmed.

An ambulance took Holmberg, 57, a well-known politician in Sweden, to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Fla., early Tuesday morning.

"Barbro Holmberg, mother of Elin [Nordegren], was admitted to Health Central Hospital with stomach pain. She’s in stable condition and is currently undergoing evaluation," Yates said Tuesday. "Media reports other than this attributed to this matter have been erroneous and speculative, and we ask that her privacy be respected at this time."

A family member also confirms that Holmberg is stable and is being evaluated.

At midday, Elin Nordegren was seen carrying an overnight bag into the hospital where her mother is being treated.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department released a record of a 911 call from Woods's house in Windermere at 2:35 a.m. Tuesday.

Nordegren is one of Holmberg's three children with her former husband, Swedish journalist Thomas Nordegren. Holmberg, a member of the Social Democratic party, served as minister of migration and asylum from 2003 to 2006.
