Following Tiger Woods' DUI arrest a few weeks ago, the golf legend has checked into rehab for treatment.

Woods was arrested after he was found sleeping behind the wheel while under the influence of both prescription and alcohol. According to reports, he faces the possibility of losing joint custody of his kids.

 “Tiger visited the hospital with his children on June 2, and then went alone two days later to complete paperwork and his assessment,” Radar Online reports. 

He has reserved the entire male inpatient unit of the Jupiter Medical Center.

NY Post reveals that an unnamed source revealed how Woods’ ex-wife Elin Nordegren feels about his current state and his ability to be around their two children, daughter Sam, 9, and son Charlie, 8.

“Elin wants Tiger to get professional help before the kids spend a single night alone with him again,’’ a source told the Post. “God forbid they’re in the car when he’s drugged up!”
