commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Tiger’s back at Golf …..and It’s going to be alright……

He made his first fairly ‘normal’ appearance…..

As a introduction the Masters Course he’ll play ar sharply

And the crowds where happy to see him…..

During an 18-hole round that began just after 8 a.m. with former Masters champion Fred Couples and concluded with former U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk — who joined the group for the last five holes — Woods was received cordially, if not enthusiastically, fitting for any old Monday at Augusta National, with the first round of the Masters still three days away. Security guards walked with the group, and there was nothing approaching an ugly incident.

Fans clapped for Woods’s good shots, yelled encouragement — “You’re still the man, Tiger!” was followed by “Welcome back, Tiger!” — and filled an area around the 11th green and 12th tee as if it were Sunday’s final round.

“I expected it to be positive,” Furyk said. “It was probably even better.”

In some ways, though, the news conference was a more important element of the day. Since his single-car accident in the early hours of Nov. 27 jarred loose a torrent of information about his apparently serial infidelity, Woods had spoken publicly twice — once in February, when he addressed an international television audiencebut did not take questions, and again in March, when he granted a pair of five-minute television interviews. Because of Monday’s format — the content of questions wasn’t limited in any way — Woods addressed topics he hadn’t since the accident.
