Tiger’s interview on his Return

Tiger granted ESPN and the GOlf Channel 5 minute interviews to discuss his predicament, his treatment, and his return to golf. How did he get off course? “I lost my Buddhism, and stopped meditating…”

On the state of his marriage with Elin right now: “We’re working on it and it’s a process that will remain private between her and I.”

On why he couldn’t say no to women: “I don’t know, now I know. It’s part of what I learned in treatment, being there for 45 days you learn a lot. You strip away the denial, the rationalization and you come to the truth and the truth is very painful at times and to stare at yourself and look at the person you’ve become…you become disgusted.”

On becoming a national punch line: “It was hurtful, but then again you know what? I did it. I’m the one who did those things and looking back on it now with a more clear head, I get it. I can understand why people will say these things because you know what, it was disgusting behavior. As a person, it’s hard to believe that was me looking back on it now.”

On what exactly happened Thanksgiving night: “It’s all in the police report, they investigated it and they have it on public record, there’s a lot of stuff between Elin and I that will remain private and that’s about it.”

On the bracelet he’s wearing: “It’s Buddhist, it’s for protection and strength and I certainly need that.”

On what Woods expects for a fan reaction to his return: “I don’t know. I don’t know. I am a little nervous about that, to be honest with you.”
