Former world number one Tiger Woods announced he is getting professional help after his arrest and DUI charge.

"I'm now receiving professional help to manage my medications and the ways that I deal with back pain and a sleep disorder", Tiger wrote on his Twitter.

Woods, a 14-time major golf champion who has not won a PGA Tour title since 2013, was arrested 29 May when police in Jupiter, Florida, found him asleep at the wheel of his vehicle on a road.

Breath tests showed no presence of alcohol, but Woods told officers he had a reaction to several prescription drugs, including Vicodin and Xanax.

According to the report, Woods "was extremely slow to answer questions, had slurred and mumbled speech, and was slow to provide his DL, registration, and insurance".

Woods is now recovering from his latest back surgery and admitted he is receiving help for managing his prescription drugs after a DUI arrest last month. "I want to thank everyone for the fantastic outpouring of support and understanding especially the fans and players on tour". His arraignment has been delayed until August 9.
