Woods, a 14-time major champion, has come under fire again after being arrested and charged for driving under the influence on Monday. Why don't you try to do the opposite and help him now in the way he inspired us?
Jupiter Police on patrol at 2 a.m. Monday noticed a Mercedes pulled awkwardly to the side of the road with the engine running, the brake lights on and a right turn signal blinking.
Tests corroborated Woods' claim that he did not have alcohol in his system and during the video he is seen to explain that the only drugs he has taken are those he is prescribed.
He is scheduled to appear in court on July 5. Police also released photos of his auto that showed both tires flat with minor damage around the bumpers. It was later determined that a mix of prescription medications caused his mental and physical disorientation behind the wheel.
However, Kaymer believes the criticism Woods has received for the incident is unfair. Woods has been plagued by injury in recent years and has not played in a tournament since February due to issues with his back.
The 14-time major victor has apologised and said he takes "full responsibility" for his actions. He said he exchanged texts with Woods on Monday and that Woods told him no alcohol was involved.
It left players on the PGA Tour hopeful for better times, and not just on the golf course.
Shocking dashcam footage shows the golf star slurring his words after being found asleep in his auto with the engine running and two flat tyres in Florida.
"I understand the severity of what I did, and I take full responsibility for my actions", Woods said in his statement.
Tiger failed the field sobriety test, including the one-leg stand and nose touch.
Footage shot in Palm Beach County Jail shows the golfer in barefoot, wearing shorts and a long sleeve t-shirt, as the arresting officer tells a sergeant he did not see Woods take any substances.
