The Florida Department of Children and Families paid a visited Tiger Woods' Florida home on Saturday, according to reports.
The agency went to the golfer's mansion mid-day, accompanied by a marked police car, radaronline.com reports without naming information sources.
Officials, though, wouldn't confirm or deny the report.
"Child abuse, adult investigations in the state of Florida are confidential," said Carrie Hoeppner, an agency spokeswoman, told the Daily News. "I'm just not able by law to give confirmation about whether we visited the family and that is in the interest of protecting the child."
It's protocol for the state department to investigate domestic violence that occurs in homes.

Time for the Woods family to move away from the U.S.
Obviously the Fl Gov. seems to think their job is to totally destroy The Woods Family lives.
Maybe the National enquirer is desperate to keep the story going.
This is SICK.
No surprises here. But it's a drag nonetheless -- now The State will get their sticky fingers on this and ride it for their own 15 minutes of fame...
I don’t think the FL government has to do anything to destroy Tiger Woods’ life. He’s doing a swell job on his own.
Moral compass - you have none.
Considering the police should have investigated DV at the scene (and tested Woods for sobriety), the state is doing what should have been done in the first place.
Some of the worst DSS workers in the world reside in that state.
They can conceive of some of the dumbest things to impede families, and ignore some really horrible, obvious problems in others.
I hated dealing with them professionally.
Well, Sweden is the last place you'd want to go if you want a refuge from the 'social services' nanny state.
Wanna bet his attorneys are scared he won’t be able to pay their fees after Elin takes him to the cleaners so they sicked CPS on her?
No...I don’t think the government or Governor of Florida is ‘destroying’ Tiger’s life. He had done a pretty bang up job on that all by himself.
Police/ambulances have been at the Woods manse multiple time since Thanksgiving...Child Welfare paying a visit is pretty standard given the young ages of the minor children involved.
The National Enquirer has had very little to do with this story outside of the Rachel Uchitel story.
If somebody filed a complaint you can be sure they will come an knock on your door and they will get in!!!
getting angry at your husband for cheating on you is not abuse of your children.
of course, going into someone’s home with the potential of taking their children because they had an argument is an abuse... of power.
I am glad his Father didnt have to see what a sick bastard Tiger turned into.
Tiger will never return now that the PGA started drug testing.
Elin should have bolted for Sweden with the kids while Tiger was in the hospital. She would get fair treatment there.
As some FReeper commented about that pic the other day....”Sheesh! Was he doing the dog too??”
