Amid rumors that he’d entered a Florida rehab facility for issues related to his prescription drug use, Tiger Woods tweeted for the first time since his May 29 arrest.
Aside from a day-of-his-arrest statement citing an unexpected reaction to prescription medication and indicating alcohol wasn’t involved in DUI, Woods hasn’t made a public comment in the wake of revelations about the cocktail of medications he was taking.
Woods posted the following screenshotted notepad statement Monday evening, signing it “TW” to indicate authorship.

The 14-time major champion failed multiple field sobriety tests, although breathalyzer tests returned 0.00 readings. Woods told authorities he was taking Xanax in addition to painkillers, anti-inflammatories, and muscle relaxants.
His court date for the May 29 arrest was moved to early August.
Recovering from an April back surgery, Woods hasn’t teed it up in competition since the Dubai Desert Classic in February.
