FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami/AP) – The journey to recovery for Tiger Woods will have a to wait a couple more days.

The hearing where Woods was expected to enter a diversion program for intoxicated drivers has been postponed.

It has been moved to Friday instead of Wednesday as originally scheduled. No reason was given for the change.

The 41-year-old superstar golfer is scheduled to plead guilty to reckless driving in Palm Beach County.

In the diversion program, Woods will spend a year on probation, pay a $250 fine and attend DUI school along with other conditions.

Woods was arrested May 29 when officers found him unconscious in his parked Mercedes-Benz.

A toxicology report showed he had the active ingredient for marijuana, two painkillers, a sleep drug and an anti-anxiety drug but no alcohol in his system.

The diversion program for intoxicated drivers that Woods is expected to enter is one of several across the country aimed at dropping the number of repeat offenders while helping reduce the backlog of court cases.
