Orlando, Florida (CNN) -- Tiger Woods' mother-in-law was admitted to a hospital early Tuesday with a stomach ailment after a 911 call was made from the golfer's home, a hospital spokesman said.

Dan Yates from Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Florida, said doctors are still evaluating Barbro Holmberg, who is in stable condition.

No further details on the condition of Holmberg -- the mother of Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren -- were immediately available.

Paramedics responded early Tuesday to a medical call at Woods' home in Orange County, the county fire service said.

Woods, 33, was taken to Health Central Hospital on November 27 after he crashed his sport utility vehicle into a fire hydrant and a tree outside his mansion near Windermere.

The golfer has been mired in controversy since the crash.

Fire department medics have responded overnight to a 911 call in the same block as Tiger Woods' Orlando-area home.

A spokeswoman for Orange County Fire Rescue declined to confirm
local news reports that the 2:36 a.m. call came from Woods' home
early Tuesday or that the patient they saw was a woman.

Spokeswoman Genevieve Latham tells The Associated Press that an adult patient was taken to the hospital.

On Nov. 27, the world's No. 1 golfer crashed his SUV into a hydrant and a tree. The Florida Highway Patrol fined the golfer $164 and cited him for careless driving.

The accident - and Woods' refusal to answer questions about it -
fueled speculation about a possible dispute between the golfer and
his wife.
