ESPN claims to have obtained a copy of Woods' toxicology reports, in which a urine test showed he had taken a mixture of strong painkillers, sleep and anxiety medication and THC - a chemical component of marijuana.

On Monday evening Woods was pictured hosting a celebratory dinner at his restaurant in Jupiter Island, Florida for the PGA Championship victor and his near neighbour, Justin Thomas. It's not clear how he damaged the vehicle.

The 14-time major victor failed field sobriety examinations, but blew a.000 in a pair of breathalyser tests administered after he was brought in by police.

Woods is scheduled to plead guilty to reckless driving October 25 and enter the county's diversion program.

Under the plea deal, prosecutors would drop the DUI charge, which is a more severe charge than reckless driving. If he completes the program, he can ask a judge to expunge the reckless driving conviction. In the diversion program, Woods will spend a year on probation and pay a $250 fine and court costs. He would also have to attend DUI school, perform 50 hours of community service and attend a workshop where victims of impaired drivers detail how their lives were damaged.

Woods said his back is improving. That led to revelations that he had multiple extramarital affairs and a divorce from his wife Elin Nordegren, the mother of his two children.

In a news release Monday night, Woods said: "As I previously said, I received professional help to manage my medications".

"Recently, I had been trying on my own to treat my back pain and a sleep disorder, including insomnia, but I realise now it was a mistake to do this without medical assistance".

'I am continuing to work with my doctors, and they feel I've made significant progress.

The following month he announced he had completed an out-of-state program. "I remain grateful for the incredible support that I continue to receive and for the family and friends that are assisting me".

"Woods has 79 career PGA Tour victories but isn't now playing after his latest back surgery €" his fourth overall.

Woods has been plagued by back injuries in recent seasons and has not played competitively since February. His last win was in August 2013.
