Professional golfer Tiger Woods said Monday he has completed a program designed to help him better manage pain and a sleep disorder that led to his high-profile DUI in May.
Woods, whose golf career may be over because of injuries he has sustained over the years from playing, made the announcement on his Twitter feed.
Two weeks ago, Woods tweeted that he was "receiving professional help" for the problems that led to his arrest on May 29. Dashcam footage of a middle-of-the-night encounter between Woods and Jupiter, Fla. police showed he had slurred speech, and he appeared to be drunk.
It was later reported that Woods had taken a mix of drugs to deal with back pain and a sleep disorder.
Golf legend Jack Nicklaus said last week he has doubts that Woods will ever return to the top of the PGA Tour.
"He'll have a very hard time. I don't know whether Tiger will play much golf anymore," said Nicklaus, who holds a record 18 major championship titles.
"He might come back and play — I think it'd be pretty tough for him, after getting fused, and as many problems as he's had recently. ... His problems are more life problems than they are golf problems right now."
