Tiger Woods to enter diversion programme after impaired driving arrest

Tiger Woods to enter diversion programme after impaired driving arrest

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.
