New York, Dec 16 (ANI): Tiger Woods' wife and kids are heading to Sweden for holidays, while the golfer will remain with his friends.
Struggling with shame incurred by infidelity claims, Woods is said to be looking for a safe harbour and "waiting for the storm to settle."
"He is very contrite, but he's also disoriented," the New York Daily News quoted a longtime friend of Woods as saying.
"He still can't believe this is happening," the friend added.
"Elin is planning to take the kids to spend the holidays with her family in Sweden," said a source.
Another friend of Woods, who's known the golfer since he was a teenager, said, "He's been talking about going away with two or three of his friends, just the boys."
"They've been trying to figure out a place that would be safe."
Woods' posse includes his newly married pal, Byron Bell, whose name was drawn into the scandal when it was revealed he helped deliver New York party girl Rachel Uchitel to Australia for a reported rendezvous with Woods.
The other "boys," according to the source, are college pals from Stanford. (ANI)
