Details are still emerging about Tiger Woods' arrest in the early hours of Monday morning on suspicion of drink-driving.

The 41-year-old was detained at around 3am in the Florida town of Jupiter, a short drive from his home in Hobe Sound, and reportedly spent up to eight hours in custody before being released.

Woods later issued a press release denying alcohol was involved in the arrest but, unsurprisingly, the news has sent shockwaves throughout the golfing world as the 14-time major champion's career hit a new low.

Hunter Mahan sent a tweet saying Woods should 'get some help' before deleting it and clarifying what he meant - but he wasn't the only fellow golfer that had their say.
