Talk about Golf and one certainly cannot imagine the game without the Legend Tiger Woods. But what happens when the legend himself talks about Golf and the pain associated with the same. Woods said that his children weren't always supportive of his return to golf.
"They were both very hesitant about it because they only remember the bad times when I was hurt," he said. "…they associated golf with pain. And, you know, that still is one of the tougher things. They're both excited I'm playing again, but also, 'You okay, dad?' You know, that kinda thing. 'Cause they remember those times when dad couldn't get off the couch."
"And they're excited that I'm playing and I'm happy. I'm doing something I love to do. And they're seeing that in me," he added. "But they're also, then again, they're worried for dad…. They don't want that hurt again."
When it comes to parenting his children, Woods said he's much more like his father than his mother. "My mom's tough. Very, very tough. Very vocal," he said. "My dad was more cerebral, and liked to plant seeds that wouldn't germinate for years -- but then it was like, 'Oh yeah.' That's what I like to do."
