Cape Town - A report has revealed that Tiger Woods has entered a rehabilitation clinic following his latest arrest for driving under the influence. 

Radar Online reported that the former world No 1 checked into the Jupiter Medical Centre last week for a 28-day stint. 

"Tiger visited the hospital with his children on June 2, then went alone two days later to complete paperwork and his assessment," an insider told Radar Online.

Woods currently has joint custody over his two children and this could be an attempt to keep the status quo.

In the fallout of his arrest on May 29, it was revealed that Woods had taken powerful painkiller Vicodin as well as Xanax, commonly used to treat anxiety.

This would not be the first time the 14-time major winner has entered rehab.

In 2010, following his much publicised break-up with wife Elin Nordegren, Woods went to rehab for his sex and painkiller addiction.
