Florida - Tiger Woods and his estranged wife Elin Nordegren have got together for the first time in months to throw another birthday party for their daughter Sam, RadarOnline reports.

Woods had broken his promise and missed Sam's birthday party on June 18 when she turned three as he was playing in the US Open.

According to the Herald Sun website, Woods then promised not to miss anymore of his children's birthdays when he returned to golf and he and Nordegren threw another party for Sam and for the first time in months spent hours together in the same place.

But all wasn't perfect between Woods and Nordegren. The party was scheduled to start at 16:00 on Saturday and last about two hours. Woods didn't show up until 16:55 and he brought his office manager Karen and another woman with him. Nordegren was understandably very angry.

"But they put aside their differences for the good of their daughter when a big cake rolled in," a source told RadarOnline.

"Clearly this was Tiger trying to make it up to Sam. He wasn't there on her birthday so he wanted to have a party for her and be there. Elin went along with it. Despite their differences they want to do what is best for their children."

Woods and Nordegren are about to sign a divorce settlement. She will receive approximately $750 million.

Woods and Nordegren spending hours together is a rare event. Nordegren lives in a rented house approximately 1.5km away from Woods and has very little to do with him. Nannies shuttle the children between parents.

"Elin has taken several trips away from Tiger and is getting on with life, without him," said a source. "They barely talk. It's amazing that they spent time together - even at a birthday party."
