Tiger Woods is finally in the headlines again, but not for the right reasons.
Woods as arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence at 3 a.m. in Jupiter, Florida, and released on his own recognizance about eight hours later.
Woods blamed the arrest on prescribed medications and said alcohol was not part of his evening.
“I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions,” Woods said in a statement Monday evening. “I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.
Woods has expected to make a full comeback in 2017 season but has only played two tournaments this year; the Hero World Challenge and the Farmers Insurance Open, where he missed the cut.
