Woods released a statement to GolfChannel.com in response to the publishing of the toxicology report, which gave an update on the status of his surgically repaired back.
“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 realize 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. I remain grateful for the amazing support that I continue to receive and for the family and friends that are assisting me.
“Regarding my back, I recently spoke to my surgeon and he’s very pleased with how my fusion is healing. I’m right on schedule. I’m now doing some light lifting, riding a stationary bike and putting a little.”
Woods has been active on social media in the wake of the arrest and subsequent treatment. Most recently, Woods posted a photo of himself with PGA Champion Justin Thomas on Monday.
