(Newser) – Tiger Woods was not at his father's bedside the night Earl Woods succumbed to cancer because he was in bed with a lingerie model. Jamie Jungers tells the UK tabloid News of the World she was with Woods in May 2006—at the home he shared with his wife—when his mother called to let him know "his dad was in a bad way." After a visit from his son, Earl Woods died later that night.

Upon returning from the hospital, Woods seemed subdued, "but when we went to bed he still wanted to have sex as usual," says galpal No. 4. After his mom called with the news, Jungers says, "Tiger looked utterly devastated and didn't say a word." Meanwhile, Tiger's caddie says he's shocked by his boss' extracurricular activities. "I had no knowledge of what Tiger's indiscretion was," Steve Williams tells the Sunday News of his native New Zealand. "I had no knowledge of what was going on. If I did, I would say I did."
