SAN DIEGO - Tiger Woods' wife Elin has reportedly given birth to the couple's first son.

SAN DIEGO - Tiger Woods' wife Elin has reportedly given birth to the couple's first son.

The San Diego Union-Tribunereported late on Sunday that Elin gave birth for the second time. They had a daughter, Sam Alexis, in June 2007 - a day after the US Open.

Woods, 33, won the US Open last summer for his 14th career major. That was the last tournament he has played before a knee surgery a week later that ended his 2008 season. He is expected to return before the Masters, possibly as early as the Accenture Match Play Championship on February 25.

Woods wrote in a newsletter last week that his return to golf would depend largely on the birth of his baby, "which is due pretty soon".

"That takes precedent over anything I do golf-wise," he wrote.

Woods was the only child born of his parents, Earl and Tida Woods. He had said after his marriage in 2004 that he looked forward to having more than one child. - Sapa-AP
