Tiger Woods will enter a first-time offender program, report says

LOS ANGELES — Golf legend Tiger Woods is set to enter into a first-time program for people caught driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, the Palm Beach Post reported Wednesday.

A Florida assistant state attorney and Woods' lawyer agreed to the deal as part of the court case against him.

The next hearing in the case is set for Oct. 25, when Woods is expected to plead guilty to a misdemeanor reckless driving charge, the paper reported.

In May, Woods was arrested for driving while intoxicated after police found him asleep behind the wheel of his car near his Florida home.

Woods blamed his condition on an "unexpected reaction" to prescription medication but apologized and took "full responsibility" for his actions.

In April, Woods underwent a spinal fusion procedure, his fourth back surgery in three years.

Woods is second to Jack Nicklaus for the most all-time major victories.
