Woods nervous about reception

Woods nervous about reception

Last week Woods announced he would be making his comeback at the April 8-11 Masters, the opening Major of the year and an event he has won four times before at one of his favourite venues.

"I don't know. I'm a little nervous about that to be honest with you," he said on Sunday. "It would be nice to hear a couple of claps here and there. But I also hope they clap for birdies, too.

"Playing is one thing," added Woods, who finally faced questions from the media in two five-minute interviews with the Golf Channel and ESPN.

"I'm excited to get back and play. I'm excited to get to see the guys again. I really miss a lot of my friends out there. I miss competing.

"But I still have a lot more treatment to do and just because I'm playing, doesn't mean I'm gonna stop going to treatment. I will have more treatment, more therapy sessions."
Woods, who has been trying to salvage his marriage to his Swedish wife Elin, said his playing schedule for the rest of this year remained uncertain.

"I don't know what I'm going to do. Last year I didn't know because of my knee; it was still uncertain. And this year, with all the things that I've done I don't know what I'll be doing either.”

Rehabilitation and religion were the two themes Woods was most open about discussing in the interviews. "Going against your core values, losing sight of it. I quit meditating, I quit being a Buddhist, and my life changed upside down.”
