TIGER TREATED

STILL HAS WORK TO DO,

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

Tiger Woods said Mon­day he has com­pleted in-pa­tient treat­ment to help man­age his pain med­i­ca­tions and a sleep dis­or­der, but more at­ten­tion is needed go­ing for­ward.

“I re­cently com­pleted an out of state pri­vate in­ten­sive pro­gram,” the 14-time ma­jor cham­pion tweeted.

“I will con­tinue to tackle this go­ing for­ward with my doc­tors, fam­ily and friends. I am so very thank­ful for all of the sup­port I’ve re­ceived.”

Woods was charged with driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence af­ter po­lice found him asleep at the wheel of his Mercedes-Benz at 2 a.m. on May 29.

The car — still run­ning — was parked off the side of the road and had two flat tires and other no­tice­able dam­age.

Woods was un­able to per­form rou­tine DUI tests and two breath­a­lyzer tests re­vealed no pres­ence of al­co­hol.

Woods told of­fi­cers he had a re­ac­tion to sev­eral pre­scrip­tion drugs, in­clud­ing Vi­codin and Xanax.

On June 19, Woods tweeted that he was re­ceiv­ing pro­fes­sional help to “man­age my med­i­ca­tions and the ways that I deal with back pain and a sleep­ing dis­or­der.”
