Golfer Arrested Over Memorial Day Weekend For DUI
On Memorial Day weekend, professional golfer Tiger Woods was arrested with a DUI, but he claimed the influence came from prescription pills. Now, the former greatest-of-all-time is seeking “professional help.”
“I’m currently receiving professional help to manage my medications and the ways that I deal with back pain and a sleep disorder. I want to thank everyone for the amazing outpouring of support and understanding especially the fans and players on tour,” said Woods in a blanket statement.
Upon the ex-golfer’s arrest, he was extremely out of it and couldn’t even tie his shoes.
Woods Blamed Prescription Pills For DUI
“Woods blamed his state on a bad mixture of prescription medication. Woods going public about the professional help could well be a strategy in his pending DUI case. It’s often used to show the judge that he’s taking his problem seriously, which could affect sentencing.”
“Woods was spotted out in Florida with his kids over the weekend — so it doesn’t appear he’s in a live-in facility for his treatment.”
After Tiger’s arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence, Woods explained that he is receiving professional help.

“I haven’t felt this good in years,” he said on his personal website after the surgery. Woods had planned to return to the sport, but played in just three tournaments in 2017 before the surgery.”
“He missed the entire 2016 season and last competed in February when he was forced to withdraw from the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. The 14-time major champion last won a tournament in 2013. While the 41-year-old remains confident he will return to golf on a full-time basis, the immediate hope is that he can overcome the obstacles currently standing in his way.”
