What are your thoughts on Tiger Woods returning to golf in April for the Masters?

“I’m a huge Tiger Woods fan. I don’t care what he does in his personal life. I just can’t wait to see him play golf again.” (SEE VIDEO BELOW)

Mike Clayton

What are your thoughts on Tiger Woods returning to golf in April for the Masters?

“It doesn’t surprise me that he picked the Masters to come back because it’s a very controlled environment. They’ll make sure the media doesn’t beat him up, and they’ll escort any patron out of there that doesn’t behave.”

David DiMartino

What are your thoughts on Tiger Woods returning to golf in April for the Masters?

“His timing of his announcement is poor. He should’ve done it at a lesser event rather than the Masters, which is the premier event of golf in the United States. The tradition is hallowed and he’s making a mockery of the tradition.”

Gilbert Arguelles

What are your thoughts on Tiger Woods returning to golf in April for the Masters?

“I wish I could say that I have trouble answering that question, but it’s easy. He means so much to golf that what he did will be forgotten in the next few months provided that he plays well.”

Alexander Legendre, 9

What’s it been like watching golf tournaments without Tiger Woods?

“It’s kind of funny because he probably would’ve done better than the other people.”

Ian Williams

What are your thoughts on Tiger Woods returning to golf in April for the Masters?

“I’m not impressed. It’s pretty hard to separate golf from what’s going on in his real world. It’ll be good to see him back because he’s a good golfer, but I don’t think people will have quite the same respect for him.”
