JUPITER, Fla. – Professional golfer Tiger Woods was arrested early Monday morning for drunk driving, according to Palm Beach County Jail records.

Woods was arrested on Military Trail south of Indian Creek Parkway in Jupiter at 3 a.m., reported WPTV.

His bond information was not immediately available.

He was released from the county jail at 10:50 a.m, records show.

Woods has been recovering after undergoing major back surgery last month.

“It was instant nerve relief. I haven’t felt this good in year,” Woods wrote on his website May 24.

Woods eluded a DUI arrest in 2010 after the golfer crashed his Cadillac Escalade into a tree. His wife at the time told police he had been drinking.
