Tiger Woods was charged with DUI on Monday after being arrested in Jupiter, Florida.

"I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions", the pro golfer said in a statement Monday night, according to The Associated Press.

Woods spent almost four hours in the Palm Beach County Jail after being arrested early Monday on suspicion of DUI.

Woods, whose current sponsors include Nike, Bridgestone, Hero, Kowa, Upper Deck, and Monster Energy was ranked 12th on Forbes' list of the highest-paid athletes in 2016, with total earnings of $45.3 million, despite missing much of the year recovering from back surgery.

He said in a statement last month: "The surgery went well, and I'm optimistic this will relieve my back spasms and pain". PGA Tour spokesman Ty Votaw said the tour would have no comment. "I haven't felt this good in year", Woods wrote on his website May 24.

Rightler said she did not have additional details about the circumstances leading to Woods' arrest, nor did she have any information about whether the arrest involved drugs or alcohol. It's also unknown at this time whether Woods was the only person in the vehicle.

This April, it was a Murray injury that allowed Fleury to guide the team once again, which he did to the Eastern Conference Final. Guentzel, a rookie, scored five goals in the Penguins' first-round victory over Columbus and nine goals in his first 10 games.

Others questioned whether the US president remembered the words correctly as he appeared to sing along with portions of the song. The White House said Trump visited the gravesite of Robert Kelly, who was laid to rest in Section 60.

"Presently, I'm not looking ahead", he wrote.

"I want to thank my doctors for their great work and support throughout this process". It means more than you know.

"I could no longer live with the pain I had".

Woods, once widely expected to surpass Jack Nicklaus's record of 18 major championships, hasn't won a grand slam title since the 2008 US Open at Torrey Pines. Shortly after the win, Woods announced he would undergo reconstructive ACL surgery on his left knee and would miss the rest of the PGA Tour season.

Those allegations followed a freaky early morning vehicle accident outside his Florida home that rapidly ballooned into a fully-fledged sex scandal which turned his previously unblemished life and career upside down.

Woods took a break from professional golf and later apologized for having extramarital affairs and for letting down both his fans and his family. Woods and Nordegren were divorced in 2010.
