    Only a matter of time. Before he was injured his driving was all over the place.

    Woods is done, he is better closing the circus that has become his career, time to retire i think

    Saw his mugshot on Sky and he looked rough. No car to get home so a fairway to walk.

    He was certainly looking below par in his mugshot.

    A bigger shame in professional sport, I can't recall in my lifetime. His downward spiral has been captivating and crushing in equal measure and I take no joy seeing his latest debacle.

    He was genuinely THE golf idol of my generation and could easily have surpassed Jack had he not come completely undone.

    I find the entire thing horrifically sad for a number of reasons: 1) because his behaviour could have killed someone quite easily, 2) because it's quite clear he's finished as a professional golfer and 3) because all of those people who genuinely looked up to him and wanted him to succeed in every comeback are now rapidly realising just how great his demons are.
    Okay, technically I'm a serial killer...

    Just seen his arrest on SSN, and he's certainly confused to say the least. Apparently his alcohol blood count was zero, so it seems he's taken something whether its prescription drugs or worse.

    Either way he shouldnt have been driving.

    True but if you've already been affected by the medication then that judgement isn't there surely?

    I'm no fan of Tiger Woods, but what bothers me about all of this is how the footage got into the public domain in the first place. This matter should be between him and the police - no way should this have been released for public consumption.

    Driving under the influence of drink or drugs is just crazy behaviour. He's had some fall from grace, pretty sad really.

    Agreed. But if you've no idea what you're doing due to a reaction to prescribed drugs? Not sure if you can be responsible or not?

    I suppose it depends how long he has been on them and whether or not he has experienced the side effects before. Then again you have a responsibility to ensure that anything you take prior to driving is not going to adversely affect your ability to drive.

    He's had back problems for years. Unless it's new medication which is doubtful he should be acutely aware of their effects. 3am? Strange one.

    It's obvious that the guy needs help. It's at times like this that he needs strong people around him with his own interests at heart. The death of his father seems to have started his downward spiral. I really hope he manages to come to terms with his demons and make a recovery. I doubt we'll see him back on the golf course again, but I would be delighted if we did.

    He's made some silly decisions down the years but it's horrible seeing someone so brilliant go downhill like this. Love sitting watching clips of some of his shots/wins over the years. Only wish I could remember him at his prime, my first real memories are when I saw him in 2007 at Carnoustie.
