An “extremely sleepy” Tiger Woods was passed out behind the wheel and failed a sobriety test when cops busted him for DUI in Florida, according to a new report.

Woods was asleep in his Mercedes with the engine running and right blinker flashing, and had “extremely slow and slurred speech” when he was arrested around 3 a.m. Monday in Jupiter, TMZ reported Tuesday, citing a police report.

The golf pro told police he was “coming from L.A. California from golfing” — but then changed his story, saying he didn’t know where he was.

Woods flunked the field sobriety test after he couldn’t stand on one leg or touch his nose. When cops asked him to do the alphabet test, he bizarrely mumbled, “Yes, recite entire national anthem backwards.”

The police report listed four drugs under medical conditions — Soloxer, Vicodin, Torix and Viox — though it noted that Viox was not taken this year. It’s not clear whether Woods was on those medications when he was arrested.

The report also noted that Woods had four left knee surgeries and four operations on his Achilles tendon.

Woods was arrested and taken to a testing facility, where he blew zeroes on a Breathalyzer. The report said he was “cooperative as much as possible, very droopy, extremely sleepy, hard to keep eyes open, hard to walk.”

The 41-year-old athlete blamed his arrest on an “unexpected reaction” to medication he’d been taking following back surgery five weeks ago.
