Golfer Tiger Woods will be in court Friday afternoon to enter a plea after his DUI arrest in May, not Wednesday as previously planned. The court hearing has been rescheduled, according to the clerk's office.

Woods is expected to plead guilty to a lesser charge of reckless driving and enter a diversion program for first time DUI offenders. Days after his arrest he apologized on Instagram and said the incident did not involve alcohol, calling it "an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications."

Woods will spend a year on probation and pay a $250 fine and court costs. He also must attend DUI school, perform 20 hours of community service and attend a workshop where victims of impaired drivers detail how their lives were damaged. Another probation requirement is remaining drug-free. So regular drug tests are expected. Court records indicate Woods was intoxicated with prescription drugs. According to a sheriff's toxicology report obtained by TMZ, Woods also had THC, an ingredient found in marijuana, in his system.
