Golf star Tiger Woods is due in court in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, on Friday to resolve a driving under the influence (DUI) case against him.

Woods, 41, is expected to plead guilty in Palm Beach County to reckless driving and agree to enter a diversion program, where he will spend a year on probation and pay a $250 fine and court costs.

The professional athlete will also be required to attend DUI school, perform 20 hours of community service, and attend a workshop where victims of impaired drivers explain how their lives were hurt.

Woods will also have to undergo regular drug tests as he was intoxicated with prescription drugs and marijuana upon his arrest earlier this year.

Police arrested Woods in May after he passed out in his Mercedes on the side of the road in Palm Beach County.
