Following his recent humiliating DUI arrest, golf legend Tiger Woods is reportedly headed to rehab near his Florida home for a 28-day stay.
According to Radar Online, Woods reserved the entire male inpatient unit of the Jupiter Medical Center so he could privately seek treatment for a painkiller addiction.
“Tiger visited the hospital with his children on June 2, then went alone two days later to complete paperwork and his assessment,” an insider told Radar.
Woods was discovered asleep behind the wheel of his damaged 2015 Mercedes-Benz near his Jupiter home around three in the morning on May 29, 2017.
He infamously underwent a field sobriety test in which he was found to be extremely intoxicated and drowsy, though no alcohol was involved. He struggled to follow the officer’s instructions and thought he was supposed to sing the natoinal anthem backwards, rather than recite the alphabet.
It was later revealed that Woods had ingested a cocktail of pharmaceuticals that included Xanax and Vicodin.
He has been recovering from his fourth back surgery and hasn’t been a force in competitive golf for years, his last major win coming all the way back in 2008. This will be his second stint in rehab, his first coming back in 2009 after the shocking news of his extramarital affairs broke.
