Tiger Woods addressed several topics during his 35-minute press conference Monday at the Masters:
THE MASTERS:
"The reason why I didn't come back and play earlier ... I wasn't ready for it. I wasn't even near physically ready to play at this level, and I needed more time."
HIS GAME:
"The fact that I haven't really played at all, that's a little bit concerning. I'm hoping I get my feel back quickly: feel for the game, feel for shots, feel more how my body is reacting and what my distances are going to be. I hope I get that back relatively quickly _ maybe hopefully the first hole. But if not, please hope it's the second hole."
WINNING:
"I've had some great years. Unfortunately, what I've done over the past years has been just terrible to my family. And the fact I won golf tournaments I think is irrelevant. ... I did it. And I take full responsibility for it, and as I said, winning golf tournaments, I think through all of this is irrelevant compared to the damage I've caused."
EXPECTATIONS:
"Nothing's changed, going to go out there and try to win this thing."
HIS WIFE:
"Elin is not coming this week, no."
PEERS:
"It's amazing how many hugs I've gotten from the guys. ... I'm actually surprised by that, how well received I've been."
FANS:
"To be out there in front of the people where I have done some things that are just horrible, and you know, for the fans to really want to see me play golf again, I mean, that felt great, that really did. I'm looking forward to the first tee and teeing off. You know, that's getting out there and doing what I've done for a very long time and I'm looking forward to that."
SPONSORS:
"Do I understand why they dropped me? Of course. I made a lot of mistakes in my life. And I totally understand why they would do that. And then going forward, hopefully I can prove to the other companies going forward that I am a worthy investment; that I can help their company, help their company grow and represent them well."
GRAND SLAMS:
"It's not about championships. It's about how you live your life. And I had not done that the right way for a while, and I needed to change that. And going forward, I need to be a better man. ... If I win championships along the way, so be it."
HIS LEGACY:
"Well, my dad
