His return to competition depends on wife Elin giving birth, which "takes precedent over anything I do golf-wise"
He says it himself: Tiger Woods is going to have one hectic spring.
“A lot depends on the baby, which is due pretty soon,” Woods, who admits to going “full-bore” in practice sessions, writes on his Web site. “That takes precedent over anything I do golf-wise.”
“Elin, [daughter] Sam and I are very excited for the new baby to arrive, although that’s when the real lack of sleep begins. But I must admit, I am also excited about returning to competition,” he says. “Early on, I didn’t miss golf because I enjoyed staying home with Elin and Sam and I knew I wasn’t physically able to play.”
He adds: “I’m taking it tournament to tournament. With our new addition, it’s going to be a hectic spring.”
Meanwhile, he’s also trying to squeeze in a round with Barack Obama!
The pair made tentative plans when Woods spoke at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., as part of a pre-inauguration ceremony.
“We didn’t get to talk much,” Woods explains. “I didn’t want to get in his way. I did ask him if he wanted to play golf and he said, ‘I’d love to.’ So we’ll make it happen.”
