TIGER WOODS: No, I don't even know what my ball speed is. I couldn't tell you. I do at home on the range, but when I'm out here at a tournament, I don't look at any of that. I'm just trying to hit shots and hit the ball on my numbers more than anything else. Tiger Woods


TIGER WOODS: Each day is a little bit different. Some days, it's better than others. It's just the way it is. My body is just that way. Some days, it feels great, and other days, a bit of a struggle.

TIGER WOODS: No, I don't even know what my ball speed is. I couldn't tell you. I do at home on the range, but when I'm out here at a tournament, I don't look at any of that. I'm just trying to hit shots and hit the ball on my numbers more than anything else.

TIGER WOODS: I could see the whole green. I could see it underneath the trees. I just had to go around a few trees. Hit a nice little draw 8-iron in there. I was expecting to hit it just left of the green and chip back up, but it dug in and landed soft and dug in and had a 25-footer.

TIGER WOODS: (Laughing). You've seen me play. I've hit a few shots out of the trees.

TIGER WOODS: It's just the competitive flow. It took me probably three holes to get back into competitive flow again and get a feel for hitting the ball out there in competition, adrenaline, temperatures, green speeds. These are all things that normally I adjust to very quickly, and it just took me a few holes to get into it.

Made that putt on 12 and got me going and made another putt on 13.

TIGER WOODS: Well, you can't win a tournament unless you make the cut. That's the whole idea is get to the weekend so that you can participate and have a chance to win.

I've been on the cut number and have won tournaments, or I've been ahead and leading tournaments and I've won tournaments. But you have to get to the weekend in order to win a golf tournament.

TIGER WOODS: And 8.

TIGER WOODS: Well, I three-whipped the last two holes. Wasn't very good. Bad speed on 8; whipped it past the hole.

And 9, hit it short. Hit it off the heel of the putt and blocked the second one. So wasn't very good on the last two holes.

But what was the first part of the question?

TIGER WOODS: Yeah, the rough is dense. It's just very dense. With the rain we got and just the moisture on it, I know they've topped it off, but it's just really lush.

You can get lies where it sits up. You can get a 3-wood on it. And there are other lies -- a couple times I had to pitch out sideways. I laid up at 13 and 14 -- sorry, 15.

Depends on the lie, and you don't have to worry that if you drive it in the fairway, and I just need to do a better job of that.
