Golfer Tiger Woods was arrested early Monday in Jupiter Florida on impaired driving charges, police said.

WPTV and WPBF, West Palm Beach, reported Woods was arrested at 3 a.m. about 10 miles from his home and charged with driving under the influence. Jail records indicate he was released at 10:50 a.m.

Woods, the one-time golf superstar, recently underwent back surgery in April and said he looks forward to returning to the PGA Tour.

"I want to say unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again," he said in a blog post last week.

Woods said the surgery reduced his pain but has a long way to go in his recovery. Though the surgery was successful, Woods still is in rehab.

“I hate to miss any major, especially the Masters, but the reality is I just couldn’t play,” he said. (This year’s Master’s was won by Sergio Garcia April 11.)

Woods started the 2017 season in January at the Farmers Insurance Open after a 17-month layoff but failed to make the cut with an opening round 4-over 76 and a second round even-par 72, tying for 133rd.

His back issues forced him to pull out of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic after the first round with a 5 over 77 in February. He then was forced to miss the Masters. At the time he said he had no timetable for returning to competition.

Woods began his professional career in 1996, winning 105 tournaments, including 14 majors. His 79 PGA wins is the second-highest total of any player, including four Masters, four PGA Championships and three British Opens. In 2001, he became the first golfer to hold all four professional major championships at the same time.

Woods career took a negative turn in 2009 after admitted he had cheated on wife Elin Nordegren with at least a dozen women. The couple divorced in 2010. The Thanksgiving night she found out, Nordegren chased him out of their $2.4 million mansion near Orlando.

Woods has described Nordegren as one of his best friends despite the split. They both have told interviewers they work at it for the sake of their children’s sake.

"We communicate so much better now, it's incredible. I wish we would have done that earlier on, but it's been incredible to have a best friend like that," Woods said in an October interview with Stephen Colbert.

Among the women he has been paired with are Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn and billionaire Chris Cline, as well as cocktail waitresses Jaimee Grubbs, Julie Postle and Jamie Jungers; porn actress Holly Sampson, New York party girl Cori Rist and Perkins waitress Mindy Lawton.

In an interview with Charlie Rose, Woods said his major regret in life was having not spent an extra year at Stanford. When prompted he said he regretted cheating on his wife. He said he has explained the divorce to his children by saying he had made some mistakes.

"I've said, 'Everybody makes mistakes, and the reason why mommy's living in her house and daddy's living in his house is because daddy made mistakes, and it's OK," Woods said.
