To his children, he jokes that he's been the "YouTube Golfer", as they've seen his brilliance only in old, distorted highlight clips, and never in person. Just hitting shots. I haven't really had a scorecard in my hand in a while. I know there will be some limitations somewhere, I just don't know what they will be yet. I may have to blast a few. He even had Jackie caddie for him at the Masters. I hadn't done that in two years. "It would be nice, one day, for one of them to carry my bag at a tournament".
Tiger Woods insists he's come out the "other side" after years of relying on pain medication and is relishing his return to tournament play for the first time in 10 months. "I think he was probably trying to talk himself into not being in pain last time, whereas now it seems that he generally is not in pain. I don't have these issues anymore". "My doctor said, 'You'll be good for the rest of your life.'".
"I was telling a lot of my friends at home that I missed playing golf for fun", Woods said.
"I didn't realise the slow, degrading nature of my back and how bad it got because it was a slow process".
"I'd play nine holes here and 18 holes here and then have to take three days off because my back was killing me". Even in 2013, I was struggling.
"Yeah", Woods said, "this is very different, because ... a year ago I was still struggling with a little bit of pain". I haven't had the adrenaline coursing through my system and the speed I normally swing at with adrenaline in my system. "That's so exciting, you have no idea how exciting that is". Now I can start chipping and putting out here, I can hit 400 putts in a training session. It's still sinking in that I can start being more athletic, but there's still some apprehension going forward, no doubt, so this week is a big step for me. Looking back over it, you've gone through all those things, how has it changed you? "I haven't felt the adrenaline for a long time in my body..." "But at a professional level I see no reason why we can't have it very similar to where baseball has it right now".
