This is not the Tiger Woods of old. Or even of 2009.
On Thanksgiving night that year, his personal life erupted in scandal. The damage to his family and his golf game took pretty much all of 2010 to play out.
As he looks to turn over a new leaf on and off the course this year, Woods talked about his career, kids and quest for balance on Good Morning America:
In the interview, which was more subdued and serious than his chat with Jimmy Fallon, the golfer talked about how he’s adjusting to life as a single dad.
“I’m present with my kids,” he said. “That’s important, because to be with them each and every time I’m with them, to feel that and be connected to them and to see their joys on their faces … it’s work, there’s no doubt. It’s tough but enjoyable.”
Woods and Elin Nordegren divorced last summer. Think he’ll be able to leave the past behind him and forge a new chapter in his life this year?
