Tiger Woods’ history with Ambien, details of latest car crash raise questions

In the early morning hours of Memorial Day in 2017, a police officer in Florida observed a black Mercedes stopped on the road in the right lane with its brake lights on and the right blinker still blinking.

The officer then approached the driver, who was asleep at the wheel and had to be woken up.

The driver said he did not know where he was and acknowledged that he “takes several prescriptions,” according to the police officer’s affidavit. One of the prescription drugs found in his system was the sleep medication zolpidem, which is commonly known as Ambien.

The driver was golf legend Tiger Woods.

Nearly four years later, on Feb. 23, Woods was found off the road in a crashed car by a local resident who said Woods was initially unconscious. A Los Angeles County Sheriff deputy at the scene asked Woods how the crash occurred.

“Driver said he did not know and did not even remember driving,” according to a deputy’s affidavit obtained by USA TODAY Sports. When Woods was asked again later at the hospital, he repeated that he did not know and did not remember driving.

No. 17 Oklahoma State stuns No. 5 West Virginia without Cade Cunningham, Isaac Likekele

The odds were certainly against Oklahoma State. No Cade Cunningham. No Isaac Likekele. Huge problems at No. 5-ranked West Virginia, right?

Not so much.

The Cowboys, ranked 17th in the Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll, gave the Mountaineers more than they could handle in an improbable 85-80 upset Saturday afternoon in Morgantown, West Virginia, to end the regular season. They also kept Bob Huggins from notching his 900th career win.

OSU again proved it’s more than just Cunningham and even Likekele. Cunningham sat out with a sprained left ankle suffered Thursday. Likelele is recovering from a foot injury.

This young group has grown up. It’s why the Cowboys are in position for the fourth or fifth seed next week in the Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City.

OSU overcame a huge free-throw discrepancy and turnover problems again. The Cowboys got big days from nearly the entire roster.

Three takeaways:
