Tiger Woods was reported to have admitted himself into a rehabilitation center last week, and a message he tweeted to his fans Monday seems to back that up.
Woods was busted for DUI after being 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 failed a field sobriety test during which he was seen to be intoxicated and drowsy, though no alcohol was involved. He struggled to follow the officer’s instructions and thought he was supposed to sing the national anthem backwards, rather than recite the alphabet.
It was later revealed that Woods had taken pharmaceuticals, including Xanax and Vicodin.
Woods recently underwent his fourth back surgery to help relieve pain that was going down his leg. Good health hasn’t been something Woods has been able to count on since he won his last major in 2008. Hopefully the professional help he’s currently receiving will help him get back on the right track towards recovery.
