Tiger's supposed to return to golf for the Masters in April, and in his first post-affair scandal interview, he got to talk about his plans on the field, instead of off for a change.

He was a little nervous in the interview, and his voice quivered just a bit. He was interviewed outdoors at his home in a country club in Florida, so he was a little at ease in the familiar setting. He told Tilghman: "I'm starting to get my feel back. I know how to play the golf course. That helps a lot. I've just got to play it."

He said he's looking forward to getting back on the green, but his plans past the Masters are unclear. Tiger said: "I'm excited to get to see the guys again. I really miss a lot of my friends out there. I miss competing. But still, I still have a lot more treatment to do, and just because I'm playing, doesn't mean I'm gonna stop going to treatment."

As for the juicy stuff, he avoided most mention of his marriage and family, understandably. He said he and Elin Nordegren are "working on it." And, he took the blame for what went down in the scandal and denied that anyone from his camp was in on his secret life.

He said: "It was all me. I'm the one who did it. I'm the one who acted the way I acted. No one knew what was going on when it was going on. I'm sure if more people would have known in my inner circle, they would have stopped it or tried to put a stop to it. But I kept it all to myself."
