Tiger Woods, recovering from his fourth back surgery in the last three years, was arrested on DUI charges Monday morning in Jupiter, Fla.
Woods, 41, is the winner of 79 PGA tournaments in his career (including 14 majors). He was stopped this morning at around 3 a.m. and booked at 7:18 a.m. He was released on his own recognizance at 10:50 a.m.
Physical problems have plagued Woods in recent years, but he said last week "unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again." However, he will need months to recover from his most recent surgery.

NASSAU, Bahamas - Rickie Fowler and Tiger Woods both had cause for celebrations large and small at the Hero World Challenge.
Fowler rallied from a seven-shot deficit by opening with seven straight birdies at Albany Golf Club and closing with an 11-under 61 Sunday for his second victory worldwide. It was the second time in his eight years on tour that he won multiple times around the world.
Woods had his best finish in four years.
Playing for the first time in 10 months while recovering from a fourth back surgery, Woods closed with a 68 despite a bogey-bogey finish. Even so, his back felt good and he was swinging at full strength. He tied for ninth in the 18-man field, his best result since a playoff loss at this holiday event in 2013.
NASSAU, Bahamas - One of the biggest cheers at the Hero World Challenge was seeing the name Tiger Woods go to the top of the leaderboard.
It just didn't stay there for long.
Woods built on a solid start in his return to golf by shooting 31 on the front nine at Albany Golf Club, only to stall on the back nine for a 4-under 68. By the end of the second round Friday, he was five shots behind Charley Hoffman, who shot 63.
Hoffman made 12 birdies on another breezy afternoon in the Bahamas to take a three-shot the lead into the weekend over Jordan Spieth (67) and Tommy Fleetwood (69).
