It's been a long couple months for a scandal-ridden Tiger Woods
, but he likely breathed the biggest sigh of relief imaginable when he played at the Masters earlier this month and was well-received by observers. Sure, there was a rogue plane message, but, all in all, things were good on the fan front. The fans really turned out at the Masters. (Getty)
So, he decided it was time to get his blog up and running again -- with some serious comment filtering, we imagine. He wrote in his first post (via People.com
): "I honestly didn't know what to expect from the fans, but they were absolutely incredible. It was unreal. They definitely helped me mentally be more comfortable out there … To get that type of warmth is something I did not expect and will never forget."
It was his first tournament in months, and though he didn't do as well as he'd hoped, he said it was good to get back on the green. "It also felt great to be in the hunt again, but unfortunately, I didn't have my game," he wrote. "I knew I needed to make a run, but I just didn't have one in me."
His marriage situation might not be going as well as he'd like, however. Divorce rumors continue to go around, and he and Elin have yet to be seen in public together.
