Yesterday, Tiger Woods gave his first interviews since that fateful night last Thanksgiving which set of a whirlwind of life-changing events for the world's best golfer.
Tiger Woods offered two short interviews, one with The Golf Channel and the other with ESPN. Woods "sat down" with ESPN's Tom Rinaldi for a five-minute lightning round of questions touching on his own expectations on the golf course and the events of his life over the last six months.
Woods met with the media at the Isleworth and offered ESPN free reign to ask any questions within the limited time. It was the first time Woods faced questions since the accident and his responses were brief and to the point. However, Woods declined to specify details about the night of the crash itself.
"I hurt a lot of people, not just my wife," Woods said to ESPN. "My friends, my colleagues, the public, kids who looked up to me. There were a lot of people that thought I was a different person and my actions were not according to that. That's why I had to apologize. I was so sorry for what I had done."
Woods will return to competitive golf on April 8th at The Masters. Woods, who has not played since the 2009 Tour Championship, touched on his thoughts about returning to the course.
"I'm a little nervous about that to be honest with you. It would be nice to hear a couple claps here and there," Woods detailed.
"I'm excited to get back and play, I'm excited to get to see the guys again," he said. "I really miss a lot of my friends out there. I miss competing. But still, I still have a lot more treatment to do, and just because I'm playing, doesn't mean I'm [going to] stop going to treatment."
