Following the incident, the sportsman released a statement.

Woods was busted on Memorial Day in Jupiter, Fla., after cops found him asleep at the wheel of his auto.

Woods' agent confirmed that the 14-time major victor, who had back surgery in April, was seeking in-patient treatment.

Tiger Woods recently completed treatment for medication management, he revealed on Twitter.

Pro golf legend Tiger Woods said in a statement Monday that he has "completed an out of state private intensive program" after his arrest for DUI in Jupiter, Florida, in June.

Hopefully Tiger can continue to have success battling his issues moving forward. He denied alcohol was involved and said it was down to "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medication".

"I want to thank everyone for the awesome outpouring of support and understanding, especially the fans and players on Tour".

Woods had fusion surgery on April 19 and had said in public comments days before his arrest that he was feeling better than he had in years. He told cops that he'd taken a number of prescription drugs, and indeed, no alcohol was found in his system.

The 41-year-old said last month he was receiving "professional help".

The American golfer dropped to 876th in the world rankings and has not won a tournament since 2013.

The 14-time major victor has not played professionally since withdrawing from a tournament in Dubai in February.
