Given how he’s been tabloid fodder ever since his infidelity was exposed, Tiger Woods’ arrest for driving under the influence was bound to attract attention.
Golf’s former world No 1 was charged on Monday close to his home in Florida and later sent out an apology, stating no alcohol was involved.
Instead, Woods blamed the “unexpected reactions” from his prescribed medications.
Regardless, it didn’t stop Twitter from having a field day.
The tabloid New York Post set the ball rolling with a clever play on the lyrics of the famous song “Eye of the tiger”.
