addressed his time in rehab during his press conference today in Georgia in preparation for the Masters Tournament. He said he's a "much better" person since getting help in January, and is excited to get back into the game. Tiger Woods (Getty)
He said he missed his son Charlie's first birthday while in rehab, and will forever regret having to do that. But, now he's come out a better person. He said during the conference: "I was in there for 45 days, and it was to take a hard look at myself -- and I did. And I've come out better -- certainly a much better person for it than I was going in."
He also said he hopes to continue his corporate partnerships and make a positive return to the game, for his family, fans, and fellow players. "Hopefully, I can prove to the other companies going forward that I am a worthy investment, that I can help their company, help their company grow and represent them well. I felt like I was representing companies well in the past, but then again I wasn't doing it the right way because of what I was engaged in."
