Immesberger lost control of his car around 6 p.m. that night while driving home, swerved across three lanes and went airborne before landing in a grassy area on Federal Highway in Port Salerno, Florida, according to the Palm Beach Post. Immesberger died at the scene. He was 24.

Immesberger’s blood alcohol level was .256 at the time of the crash, more than three times the legal limit, according to TMZ.

The man’s family filed the lawsuit in Palm Beach County, Florida, and claims that both Woods and Herman “reasonably should have known” that their son had a “habitual problem” with alcohol. Woods, the family said, is “directly responsible for ensuring that his employees and management ... were not over-serving its employees/customers."

Woods is set to compete again at the PGA Championship this week at Bethpage Black, marking his first Tour appearance since he won the Masters last month.
