Over the weekend, Tiger Woods was arrested for DUI a few miles from his Florida home.
The arrest put Woods back in the headlines once again for the wrong reasons.
For many, it brought back memories of his own self-destructive behavior that stated in 2009 when he crashed his car into a fire hydrant, which led to a cascading string of scandal that ended up in his wife divorcing him and Tiger starting his long slide from top to bottom.
Golf Digest referred to the aftermath of the 2009 incident.
In the scandal-infused aftermath, Woods entered a Mississippi rehabilitation center called Gentle Path, which specializes in treating sex addiction. But the center’s website says it also addresses “co-occurring disorders” including those involving alcohol.
Tiger Woods has always seemed larger than life. There is little doubt that he’s the greatest golfer of all time and along the way has earned over a billion dollars. But, he’s also proved to be a man with some critical faults.
On Monday, the Woods team blamed the incident on a reaction to prescription medication, and supposedly a breathalyzer test showed no alcohol in his system.
