Charlotte (North Carolina, US), Apr.29 (ANI): Having finished an uncharacteristic fourth in the Augusta Masters earlier this month, golfer Tiger Woods participation in the Quail Hollow Championship here was a virtual walk in the park.
"I have to say this feels a heck of a lot more normal than the Masters did. I think just two weeks in a row competing is. ... I'll have a better barometer of what normal really feels like because I haven't done that in a while," the New York Daily News quoted Woods, as saying.
Woods is still searching for the swing that was good enough for a tie for fourth at the Masters.
Asked how long it might take before his swing feels normal again, he said: "Usually after I come out of the West Coast swing, I usually feel pretty good about my game. It's usually three events. Coming into Florida, I (usually) fine-tune a few things a few things and show up at Augusta. This has been a little bit different."
Woods is still hounded by the ramifications of his actions. Just last week, he was criticized for attending a Nickelback concert and a backstage party in Orlando.
Asked if he can get back to leading a relatively normal life, Woods said, "No, there's paparazzi everywhere at home, helicopters here and there ... people driving by, paparazzi camping in front of the gates. That hasn't changed." (ANI)
