Tiger Woods is now on the inward nine when it comes to women claiming to have had affairs with the golf superstar in the wake of his apology for "personal sins" and "transgressions" that hurt his family.

News reports pushed the total to 10 women linking themselves to Woods in the wake of his one-car crash, which took yet another turn with a new report that Woods had been drinking before the accident and was taking medications.

The Orlando Sentinel reported on Monday that a failed police request for a subpoena to obtain Woods's hospital blood test results says a witness, thought to be Elin Woods, told police Woods had been drinking and was taking Ambien and Vicodin.

The document says the person who pulled Woods from his vehicle -- his wife Elin according to earlier her earlier statements to police -- also said Woods had been drinking before the crash, opening the door to possible impairment.

Woods hit a hydrant and a tree in the early morning hours of November 27 and was taken to a hospital. The accident came two days after a tabloid reported Woods had been having an affair with New York club hostess Rachel Uchitel.

Police had wanted Woods's medical information to check the possibility he was "driving under the influence with property damage," the request said.

"A witness stated that the driver had consumed alcohol earlier in the day and the same witness removed the driver from the vehicle after the collision. Also, the same witness stated that the driver was prescribed medication (Ambien and Vicatin) (sic). Impairment of the driver is also suspected."
