Golf Hero Ends Up In The Drink

Tiger Woods has been arrested on a charge of drink-driving in Florida.

The former world number one, who's again recovering from another back operation was arrested on suspicion of DUI at 3am local time and booked about four hours later.

Woods, who is second on the all-time list with 14 major titles, was taken into custody near his Jupiter Island home, booked and released hours later on his own recognizance, the police report showed.

Woods, who is currently sidelined from competition after having his fourth back surgery in April, said last week that he felt better than he had in years and had no plans to retire from competitive golf.

"Presently, I'm not looking ahead," Woods wrote on his website.

"I can't twist for another two and a half to three months. Right now, my sole focus is rehab and doing what the doctors tell me. I am concentrating on short- term goals."

This is not the first time Woods has made headlines away from the golf course.
