After his embarrassing May 29 arrest, Woods announced that he didn't have alcohol in his system, rather, it was "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications."

As previously reported exclusively, the 41-year-old secretly arranged a 28-day rehab stint in a bid to retain joint custody of daughter Sam, 9, and son, Charlie, 8, and according to sources he's reserved the entire male inpatient unit at the Jupiter Medical Center near his Florida mansion.

“If Tiger gets caught up in a scandal, he could face losing the 20 percent custody he currently has,” the source revealed, further adding that Woods' treatment will focus on his addiction to prescription pills.
