Tiger Woods broke his silence on a lawsuit that claims his restaurant is responsible for a man's death on Tuesday. The parents of Nicholas Immesberger, 24, filed the lawsuit.

They are claiming their son was overserved booze at Tiger's "The Woods" restaurant in Jupiter, Florida. They go on to state this led to his 2018 drunk driving death.

Tiger was questioned about the incident during his PGA Championship press conference. He said,

"We're all very sad that Nick passed away. It was a terrible, terrible night. A terrible ending and just we feel bad for him and his entire family. It's very sad."

The 24-year-old worked as a bartender for the restaurant. His parents allege that he knew Tiger personally. They also claim Tiger's girlfriend, who is the restaurant general manager, Erica Herman personally recruited him.

According to the suit, Immesberger finished a shift on December 10, 2018. He then stayed at the restaurant for hours after his shift and was served alcohol to the point of "severe intoxication."

They also believe that both Tiger and Erica knew Immesberger had a problem with alcohol but allowed him to be overserved anyway. The suit alleges that he was sent to his car to drive home while intoxicated which led to him crashing on his drive home.

He died in the accident and his blood alcohol level was a .256. That was more than 3 times the legal limit.

At a press conference of their own on Tuesday morning, an attorney for Immesberger's estate and his parents revealed that they believe the restaurant destroyed video evidence of Immesberger drinking at the bar for hours after his shift.

Their attorneys are pushing to hold Woods, Erica, and The Woods restaurant responsible for the tragedy. The family is seeking medical and funeral expenses as well as other "appropriate damages."

The lawsuit comes just a month after Woods and Erica celebrated him bagging a fifth Master win in Augusta, Georgia after shooting a 2-under 70 for a one-stroke victory.
