Tiger Woods Tuesday called the death of a former restaurant employee “sad” and a “terrible ending” during his pre-PGA Woods , his girlfriend Erica Herman, and the general manager of Woods ’ Jupiter, Fla., restaurant , face a wrongful death lawsuit brought by the parents of Nicholas Immesberger.

Messages left with Woods' representatives by USA TODAY Sports were not immediately returned Monday.

Immesberger had a history of alcohol abuse, and the lawsuit alleges “Tiger knew, or reasonably should have known, that Immesberger was habitually addicted to the use of any or all alcoholic beverages, and/or was a habitual drunkard.”

While the lawsuit alleges, "Tiger is individually liable in this action because he individually participated in the serving of alcohol," that doesn’t mean Woods served — or was even at The Woods — that day. Woods, under state alcohol laws, potentially could be held liable as an owner of the establishment even if he wasn’t physically at the venue if a foreseeable risk of injury or death occurs due to over-serving somebody with a known history of alcohol abuse issue.

"In fact, employees and managers knew that Immesberger had attended Alcoholic Anonymous meetings prior to the night of his crash and was attempting to treat his disease.
