Woods excited to be back

TIGER WOODS has given two five minute television interviews in which he says he is excited to be back playing golf but is “a little nervous” about the reception he will receive from fans at the US Masters.

“I’m starting to get my feel back. I know how to play the golf course and that helps a lot, I just got to, play it,” he said of Augusta National on the Golf Channel.

To ESPN interviewer Tom Rinaldi he said: “I’m excited to get to see the guys again. 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 gonna stop going to treatment.”

Woods said he didn’t know what reception he would get from fans.

“I’m a little nervous about that to be honest with you,” he said.

“It would be nice to hear a couple claps here and there. But also hope they clap for birdies, too.”
