“I’m currently receiving professional help to manage my medications and the ways that I deal with back pain and a sleep disorder,” read the statement. “I want to thank everyone for the amazing outpouring of support and understanding especially the fans and players on tour.”

Golfer Martin Kaymer released a video back in June, expressing his support for the fallen champion, who’s had his legendary career derailed by injuries and scandal.

Woods blamed an unexpected reaction to prescription medication for his May arrest. His arraignment has been delayed until August.
