PLAY THE SAFEWAY OPEN.>>RIGHT.>>Stephen: YOU SAID YOU’RE
HEALTHY BUT YOUR GAME’S NOT THERE. WHERE’S YOUR GAME?>>MY GAME IS COMING. IT’S GETTING THERE. I’M NOT QUITE THERE WHERE I CAN
SHOOT. I FEEL LIKE I CAN SHOOT 63s
AND 64s IN TOURNAMENTS. I’M SHOOTING LOW ROUNDS AT HOME
BUT I DON’T FEEL I’M READY TO SHOOT THOSE TYPES SCORES IN
TOURNAMENT CONDITIONS.>>Stephen: YOU WERE GOING TO
PLAY TURKISH AIRLINES, NOT GOING TO DO THAT. NEXT ONE THE HERO WORLD
CHALLENGE WHICH YOU’RE HOSTING.>>YES.>>Stephen: I’M BUYING MY
AIRLINE TICKETS. YOU WILL ACTUALLY PLAY?>>I’LL BE THERE PLAYING.>>Stephen: OKAY

PROVE.>>I LOVE COMPETING. I LOVE PLAYING.>>Stephen: REEL LIE? I LOVE TRYING TO BEAT THESE
BOYS, IT’S FUN.>>Stephen: AND THEY ARE KIND
OF BOYS COMPARED TO YOU BECAUSE IT WILL BE 20 YEARS SINCE YOU
ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED EVERYBODY AT THE MASTERS.>>I WAS GIVING JORDAN PRETTY
GOOD GRIEF AT THE RYDER CUP BECAUSE WHEN I WON THE MASTERS,
HE WAS STILL IN DIAPERS.>>Stephen: NOT A METAPHOR. NO. I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR A
WHILE, BUT I LOVE BEING OUT THERE AND COMPETING, I LOVE
TRYING TO WIN GOLF TOURNAMENTS AND COMPETING AT THE HIGHEST
LEVEL.>>Stephen: ARE YOU EVER
TEMPTED TO RETIRE TO YOU CAN DO WHAT RETIREES DO AND PLAY GOLF? ( LAUGHTER )
BECAUSE THAT’S WIN-WIN, TIGER WOODS.>>WELL, HERE’S THE DEAL, GOLF,

RELAX?>>Stephen: STOP FISHING. TOP FISHING. OKAY.>>Stephen: SO HOW LONG HAS IT
BEEN SINCE YOU PLAYED IN A PGA TOURNAMENT?>>IT’S BEEN AUGUST, OVER A
YEAR.>>Stephen: SO ANYTHING ABOUT
YOUR TIME OFF, HAS IT BEEN HUMBLING TO YOU ABOUT YOUR TIME
NOT PLAYING?>>YEAH, I’VE HAD TWO BACK
SURGERIES SINCE THEN AND, YOU KNOW, I LIKE TO PRACTICE AND
COMPETE ALL DAY. THAT’S ONE OF MY THINGS. I LIKE TO DPRIEND IT OUT, BUT
THE THING IS I WASN’T ABLE TO DO THAT ON THE GOLF COURSE. SO I APPLIED MY SAME INTENSITY
IN MY CRAFT, MY FOCUS TO CALL OF DUTY. ( LAUGHTER )
DON’T LAUGH. ( APPLAUSE )
LY SPEND EIGHT — I WILL SPEND EIGHT HOURS A DAY, GET A 30
MINUTE LUNCH BREAK, BE IN MY RECLINING GRANDPA CHAIR PLAYING. I THOUGHT I WAS GOOD BECAUSE I
GOT THROUGH THE CAMPAIGNS, NO BIG DEAL, AND WENT ONLINE. WHEN 7-YEAR-OLDS ARE BEATING YOU
FROM AROUND THE WORLD, HUMBLING.>>Stephen: TIME TO STOP. BY THE WAY, I LIKE THE BEARD.>>TALK ABOUT THREE — TOOK
ABOUT THREE AND A HALF MONTHS TO GROW.>>Stephen: REALLY? YOU LOOK LIKE TIGER WOODS’ EVIL
TWIN RIGHT NOW. YOU CAN PSYCH OUT YOUR OPPONENT
WITH THAT.>>I’M HALF ASIAN, SO IT DOESN’T
QUITE FILL IN THROUGH HERE. BUT I CAN GET THIS THING GOING.>>Stephen: OKAY. SOMETHING LIKE THAT.>>GET A LITTLE TWIRL TO IT,
YEAH.>>Stephen: I HAVE TO ASK YOU
ONE QUESTION ABOUT YOUR EX-WIFE. YOU TOLD “TIME MAGAZINE,” LESS
THAN A YEAR AGO, THAT SHE IS ONE OF YOUR BEST FRIENDS. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE? KEEPING YOUR EX-WIFE YOUR BEST
FRIEND, GIVEN HOW THAT ENDED, MY TREND —
>>RIGHT.>>Stephen: — THAT’S MORE
IMPRESSIVE THAN BEING 11 TIME PGA PLAYER OF THE YEAR. ( APPLAUSE )
( LAUGHTER ) ♪
>>Stephen: HONEST TO GOD, HOW DID YOU GUYS WORK IT OUT?>>YOU KNOW, IT BECOMES TWO
SIMPLE THINGS, OKAY, IS THAT WE HAVE SAM AND WE HAVE CHARLIE,
AND WE LOVE THEM SO MUCH, WE’RE GOING TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO
MAKE THAT WORK. ( APPLAUSE )
>THAT’S HOW IT HAPPENED, AND SHE’S BEEN ONE OF MY BEST
FRIENDS. I’VE TALKED TO HER ABOUT SO MANY
DIFFERENT THINGS AND SHE DOES A DOES SAME THING WITH ME, WE GO
BACK AND FORTH. WE COMMUNICATE SO MUCH BETTER
NOW, IT’S INCREDIBLE. I WISH WE HAD DONE THAT EARLIER
ON, BUT IT’S BEEN INCREDIBLE TO HAVE A BEST FRIEND LIKE THAT.>>Stephen: ALL RIGHT. WELL, THAT’S GOOD TO KNOW. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT YOUR
FOUNDATION. WE HAVE TO TAKE A LILT BREAK BUT
BACK WITH MORE TIGER WOODS.
