In his first comments since May 29, Tiger Woods said in a statement on Monday that he is currently receiving “professional help” to manage his prescription medications.
The news comes three weeks after Woods was charged with driving under the influence after he was found asleep at the wheel in South Florida. Alcohol was not involved, but Woods said in a statement that he suffered an “unexpected reaction to prescribed medications.”
A report on June 9 indicated that Woods told arresting officers that he was taking Xanax. He later told officers at the testing facility that he was on four medications – Soloxex (sic), Torix (sic), Vioxx and Vicodin – but the Jupiter (Fla.) Police Department has not yet released the toxicology report.
On Monday, Woods wrote on Twitter: “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 fans and players on tour.”
