(Newser) – Tiger Woods isn't just a great golfer and a sex addict—he's a drug addict, too, according to the National Enquirer. Woods "blamed a lot of his cheating behavior on his drug addiction, saying that the drugs were responsible for impairing his judgment," but wife Elin Nordegren isn't buying it. The tabloid says his problem is with two substances, which Fanhouse reports are a prescription painkiller and Ambien. Meanwhile, Gatorade said today it's dropping its onetime stalwart, the AP reports.

Considering he's in seclusion in Arizona, Tiger's been busy. His lawyers have scotched the risqué PETA ad using him as an example of why "too much sex can be a bad thing," TMZ reports. And he's received encouraging phone calls from both President Obama and Bill Clinton, Golf Digest reports in a lengthy takeout on the scandal and the fallout.
