Tiger Woods Arrested And Charged For DUI

Tiger Woods Arrested And Charged For DUI

Early Monday morning in Jupiter, Fl., Tiger Woods was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Jupiter authorities spokesperson Kristin Rightler did not immediately offer additional detail concerning the arrest.

The 41-year-old golfer has won 14 major tournaments and 79 PGA Tour events — which is sufficient to rank him second on the list of all-time winningest golfers, The Associated Press reports — but his most recent major win came almost a decade ago, in 2008.

Since then, Woods has struggled with a raft of headline-grabbing off-the-class incidents, which Sports Illustrated details here.

More recently, health concerns have kept him. Just last month, Woods experienced his fourth back surgery.

“I could no longer live with the pain I had. We tried every possible non-surgical route and nothing worked. I had good days and bad days, but the pain was usually there, and I couldn’t do much,” he wrote in a blog post last week. “Even lying down hurt.”

Still, Woods expressed confidence about the results of his chances and the surgery to return to the game.

“All I can do is take it day by day. There’s no hurry,” Woods wrote last week. “But, I want to say unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again.”

Chanachok Takes ADT Victory While Local Girl Wins The Women’s Title

The 23-year old Thai, who held a four-shot advantage heading into the final round, dropped two bogeys in his closing three holes to sign off with a four-day total of 27-under 253, claiming a one-shot victory in the B2-million event.

Newly-crowned Asian Tour champ Rattanon Wannasrichan gave himself a fighting chance for a back to back triumph as he rolled in a birdie putt from one club length on the last to close with a 64 and take second place by himself at the highly-rated Laguna Golf Phuket.

Sutijet Kooratanapisan stole the limelight by making a brilliant 59 to catch third place on 24-under 256.

I got extremely nervous towards the ending, particularly after dropping two shots. Today I didn’t drive. Fortunately, I was able to par the last to procure my title although I lost my game plan on the last few holes.

This triumph means a great deal to me. It’ll give me plenty of confidence heading into the remaining part of the season. I’m also happy since my world position will be boosted by this triumph,” said before heading into the final 18 holes Chanachok, who shot outstanding rounds of 62, 61 and 63.

Rattanon was gracious in defeat and tipped his hat to Chanachok despite surmounting a powerful challenge on the last day with seven birdies against one bogey.


I played solid. 16 was overly hard although I attempted to birdie the last three holes. By making a great birdie on the last, I gave myself a good opportunity. I’m really pleased with the way I played despite missing out on the triumph,” said the 21-year old Rattanon, a one time winner on the ADT.

Meanwhile, local daughter Saranporn Langkulgasettrin won the girls’s title in the Phuket Open on home soil on Saturday (May 27).

The 17-year old Phuket native shot a one-under par 69 in the 3rd round for a total of eight-under 202 to secure a wire-to-wire triumph.

The hobbyist title went to Kiratriya Fucharoen, 17, who had a complete score of 213.

Is an associate of the Thai team that’ll compete at this year’s SEA Games in Malaysia.

I was convinced that I’d win. As I’m a long batter, I wasn’t worried about the wet states,” said Saranporn.

“The class is rather far from my house but my relatives, especially my parents, were the class to give moral support to me.”
