On Nov. 27, 2009, Woods’ car hit a fire hydrant and tree in his neighbor’s yard, leaving him unconscious. Over the course of the following week, more than a dozen women claimed to have had affairs with Woods. On Dec. 11, Woods released a statement admitting to all the infidelities, apologizing to his fans, and claiming he would be taking an indefinite break from golf. He also agreed to attend a 45-day therapy program to treat “sex addiction. His wife divorced him in August 2010. The scandal will always be seen as one of the biggest scandals of our time.
