Tiger Woods' mom is "hurt, angry and disappointed" in her son for the damage he's done to his family. The revelation of Tiger's indiscretions has been "devastating" for Kutilda Woods, who worries for her grandchildren, a source close to the family says. "She loves him and will support him through anything, but she needs some time to work through this," the source tells People.

Kutilda's not the only one. Despite previous statements expressing solidarity with Woods, Tag Heuer now says it will scale back the use of Woods in advertising over the next few months. The company will then evaluate its arrangement with Tiger "depending on his decision about returning to professional golf," the watchmaker said in a statement.
