Tiger Woods is once again on the top of his game. The professional golfer cemented his place in history as one of the greatest golfers ever by making a marvelous comeback and winning the 2019 Masters.

Recently, he was even called to the White House by President Trump and awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The honor is one of the highest achievements a citizen can earn in our entire country. Sadly, among all of his recent successes, he is now facing some sad news off the course.

According to reports, a wrongful death lawsuit has been filed that involves Woods. The suit claims that an employee of a restaurant that Tiger owns recently died after drinking too much alcohol at work.

"Woods and the general manager of the restaurant, The Woods Jupiter, were named in the wrongful death lawsuit brought by the parents of the 24-year-old bartender," according to Fox News.

The man who died in the crash allegedly had a blood alcohol content of 0.28. Woods is said to have allegedly known about his abuse of alcohol. 

"The lawsuit claims, “Tiger knew, or reasonably should have known, that Immesberger was habitually addicted to the use of any or all alcoholic beverages, and/or was a habitual drunkard.”

Even with the information about his use of alcohol, "The employees and management at The Woods continued to serve Immesberger alcohol while he was working as well as after work, while he sat at the bar.”

Other reports contradict the claims. Some reports even state that Woods wasn't even at the restaurant before the incident and horrific crash occurred. We will keep you up to date on the latest details as they become available.
