Tiger Woods Blames Medication For His DUI Arrest...

Former world number one golfer Tiger Woods said an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications was to blame for his early-morning DUI arrest near his Jupiter Island home in Florida on Monday.

Woods, who underwent surgery last week to relieve lingering back pain, was booked at 7:18 a.m. (1118 GMT) and released several hours later on his own recognizance, Palm Beach County Police said in an online report.

Woods said in a statement released by his spokesman that alcohol was not a factor in his arrest but apologised and added that he took full responsibility.

"I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved," he said.

"What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.

"I would like to apologise with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans. I expect more from myself, too."

Woods, who is second on the all-time list with 14 major titles, said he cooperated with police and wanted to thank the Jupiter Police Department and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office for their professionalism.

"I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again," he added.

The incident occurred less than a week after Woods expressed optimism about his future following back surgery, saying on his website that he experienced "instant relief" and had not "felt this good in years."

Woods has previously made headlines away from the golf course. His private life unravelled in late 2009 over allegations about affairs with several women and ultimately led to the end of his marriage.

Those allegations followed a bizarre early morning car accident outside his Florida home that rapidly ballooned into a fully-fledged sex scandal which turned his previously unblemished life and career upside down.

The scandal ultimately cost Woods a number of lucrative endorsement deals, while other sponsors shifted away from using him in marketing but did not end their contracts with him.

Woods, whose current sponsors include Nike, Bridgestone, Hero, Kowa, Upper Deck, and Monster Energy was ranked 12th on Forbes' list of the highest-paid athletes in 2016, with total earnings of $45.3 million, despite missing much of the year recovering from back surgery.

A 79-time winner on the PGA Tour who was world number one for a record 683 weeks, Woods lost form in recent years due to injuries and the mastering of a new swing while his ranking has plummeted to 876 after his long spell on the sidelines.

He has competed in only 19 events on the PGA Tour since the end of 2013, recording just one top-10 during that period along with seven missed cuts and three withdrawals.

At Bee. You said " The guy is finished". Are you God to tell who is finished or not? Who made you God over him? God is not done with him and until you are in his shoes, please do not judge him. The only thing this guy needed from the public this moment is prayers. Tiger Wood has never recovered from his father's death being the only true mentor that have his back genuinely from the time he was born.
His father was his coach both in his professional and personal life and unless anyone of you has lost a very dear close person, you wouldn't understand his pains. After his father's death, he lost his wife ) though due to his own careless lifestyle) and that means he lost his. kids in a way since they live with their mother, although he has some custody right but is incomparable to living together as a family.
Then professionally, he lost his A-game in the game that has been part of his life since he was 12 years old. Not only has he not won a single game for years, but he also had 4 back surgeries. How much can one person deal with before they went off? Is a lot for one person to handle by himself most especially when the whole world hated you and were rooting for him to fail. The media can be very cruel and it doesn't help when the public resent him too. Let us remember that This guy is the greatest golfer and we shouldn't be happy that he is going down the tube. EVERY SAINT HAS A PAST AND EVERY SINNER HAS A FUTURE

When his father died. His father died before his wife left him. Tiger is not a Saint but I believe his father's death. contributed to his looseness with those women that ruined his marriage

He will not die but live, and will proclaim what the LORD has done.in his life again

Right after he lost his father. His wife was a trophy wife reason why he messes around. Men love a lady as a wife/mother to their children but love a freak on the bed. Is rare for them to get both combinationss together. Reason why they run after those hoochie girls
