Tiger Woods to enter diversion programme after impaired driving arrest

The Latest: Tiger Woods to enter diversion program Oct. 25

Woods, whose 79 career PGA Tour wins are three shy of Sam Snead's all-time record, has not won a major title since the 2008 US Open and has not won any event since the 2013 World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational.

Naturally, Woods sprang into action: "Contrary to the false Daily Mail article", he tweeted, presumably while clutching his pearls and fumbling for his smelling salts, "Kristin Smith and I are no longer dating and haven't since past year".

She's a 34-year-old personal stylist who was previously married for a short time to National Football League safety Gerald Sensabaugh.

Woods shot back at the Daily Mail on Twitter the same day, saying he and Smith were no longer a couple.

Smith had been linked to Woods for some time, and their relationship is rumored to have leaked out last April when she was allegedly stopped at an airport with $200,000 cash in her bag. Both camps notified the court clerk under Palm Beach County judge Sandra Bosso-Pardo that they will reschedule the hearing in October, when the golfer is expected to present a misdemeanor reckless driving charge in relation to the state attorney's diversion program intended for first-time DUI offenders.

Under the plea deal, prosecutors will drop the DUI charge from his arrest in May when he was found asleep in his Mercedes-Benz, apparently under the influence of a prescription painkiller and an anti-insomnia drug.

Unclear if Woods has rebounded with anyone else.

According to TMZ, the photos sparked a lot of speculation about the couple going on vacation around the same time Woods was supposed to be in court for his DUI hearing.
