John Daly, on Tiger Woods: 'We all have hurdles'
John Daly continues to support Tiger Woods in the wake of his DUI arrest in May.
During an impromptu Twitter Q-and-A on Sunday, Daly said he believes Woods will win again and cautioned fans not to count him out.
"Yes --don't count him out we all have hurdles", said Daly via Twitter on Sunday.
Daly thinks the best thing Tiger Woods can do following his DUI arrest is get back on the golf course. Daly, a two-time major winner who's battled alcohol issues in the past, offered advice to Woods while speaking with TMZ Sports, assuring him "this stuff will pass."
"You wonder if (Woods) is addicted to the pain pills," Daly said Tuesday. "Knowing Tiger, I doubt it. One, he's too mentally tough, and two, I wouldn't think he would be. But who knows? Nobody knows but Tiger.
"I hope he's not addicted (to pain medication). I can't quit smoking cigarettes. Thank God I never did cocaine. They said cocaine, smoking, and pills are the three most addictive things. That's what I learned in rehab. I hope he's not addicted, because that's a tough thing to get off of."

Tiger Woods announces completion of treatment program
Tiger Woods completed a program he entered to receive professional help in managing his medications following a DUI arrest in May.
Woods was taken into custody on May 29 after being found asleep behind the wheel of his car on the side of a Florida road. In a statement released following the arrest, he said he had suffered an "unexpected reaction to prescribed medications."
His agent later added Tiger was seeking help dealing with prescription medication for pain and a sleep disorder.
A few days prior to the arrest, Woods said he felt better than he had in years, and was hoping to return to professional golf.

Police: Alcohol not involved
Details were scarce after Tiger Woods' Monday morning arrest on a DUI charge, and now the golfer himself fills in some of the blanks. In a statement reported by NBC News, Woods apologizes, writing, "I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions." He says alcohol "was not involved." Rather, he experienced "an unexpected reaction to prescription medications. I didn't realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly."
He continues, "I expect more from myself too. I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again. I fully cooperated with law enforcement, and I would like to personally thank the representatives of the Jupiter Police Department and the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office for their professionalism."

Tiger Woods arrested, charged with DUI
Tiger Woods was arrested early Monday morning on a DUI charge, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.
WPTV.com reports that Woods was taken into custody at 3 a.m.
He was booked at 7:18 a.m. and released at 10:50 a.m., according to the Sheriff's Office.
Woods has been out of action since February, when he shot a first-round 77 at the Dubai Desert Classic on the European Tour. He pulled out before the second round, citing lower back spasms, then pulled out of planned starts at the Genesis Open and The Honda Classic, his hometown event.
In late April, Woods had a fourth back surgery in just over three years, a spinal fusion procedure to relieve nerve pain in his back. Woods said he would be out at least six months but planned to return to competitive golf.
