Tiger Woods spent the morning in jail after being arrested on DUI charges in Jupiter, Florida.

WPTV reported that Tiger Woods was taken into custody for driving under the influence around 3:00 a.m. ET this morning and was released at 10:50 on his own recognizance. This is just five days after he posted a health update on his website saying, "I haven’t felt this good in years." While this DUI doesn't affect his return to golf, it is disappointing to his fans, especially the young ones that still look up to him as a role model.

An update on Jeff Overton's health situation has been provided, and he is starting to make a recovery after having an emergeny surgery.

Overton's wife, Christina, shared the news via Twitter, saying "Jeff underwent a minimally invastive procedure in hopes of improving the area [herniated disc]. Through the procedure, he acquired a life-threating infection in his spine, forcing him to have an emergency surgery." She would go on so say the situation is improving as he she wished him a happy birthday as he turned 34 on Sunday. Overton missed out on his Major Medical terms when he missed the cut in his latest start (Honda Classic), dropping him back to Veteran Member status. PGA TOUR status is likely the far down his list of priorities at the moment after fighting for his life.

Hideto Tanihara cruised the front nine on his way to a final round 4-under-par 31-37=68 and T3 8-under 280 in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, three back of the winner Alex Noren.

The Japanese player is now upto 8th on the Race to Dubai after a week that began in less than auspicious manner. He made a nine on the par-5 18th hole on Thursday and was 6-over-par through 21 holes. But he recovered in majestic style and for periods of Sunday's play looked a lively threat for the title. On the front nine he ticked four of five holes at 4, 6, 7 and 8. Another birdie at 12 had him in with a shout of catching the man who escaped the field, Alex Noren. But pushing for birdies he squared 15 and couldn't gain shots on the closing par-5s 17 and 18.
May 28 - 2:13 PM

Henrik Stenson threatened to win the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth before becoming one of many becalmed after the sensational finish of Alex Noren; he shot a final round 4-under-par 32-36=68 for T3 on 8-under 280.

For 12 holes Stenson was superb, ticking three in a row at 2, 3 and 4, adding another front nine birdie at 7 and back-to-back red at 11 and 12. Only a bogey at 9 had marred his day and he was tied for the lead, albeit with four others. Just then Noren made eagle at 18 to post 11-under and Stenson stumbled with bogey-5s at 13 and 15. His race was run when he ticked the 18th. "There was certainly some good stuff in there for sure," he said, "but I'm not playing good. Too many unforced errors. I'm not a big fan of the golf course, never bee, never played that great here. But it's been a great week."
