JUPITER ISLAND — Tiger Woods is out of rehab and ready to face the world again.
The former top-ranked golfer took to Twitter Monday evening and wrote: “I recently completed and out of state private intensive program. I will continue to tackle this going forward with my doctors, family and friends. I am so very thankful for all the support I’ve received.”
On May 29, Woods was charged with DUI after cops found him asleep at the wheel of his car on Military Trail in Jupiter. He told cops that he’d taken a number of prescription drugs, and indeed, no alcohol was found in his system.
Footage of Woods barely able to stand up as cops attempted to perform sobriety tests on him, quickly went viral.
Woods, whose constant missteps are starting to make it look like his heart’s not really in being a champion again, reached out to his fans on June 19, to let them know he was getting help.
He tweeted: “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 understand especially the fans and players on tour.”
It wasn’t his first rehab stint.
After his marriage to his wife Elin Nordegeren began to unravel, serial cheater Woods checked into the Pine Grove Institute in Hattiesburg, Mississippi for sex addiction in 2009.
The following year, he checked into the posh The Meadows in Arizona for Vicodin addiction.
