The Herald reports that Woods has passed his first test; a media conference with a strong Fleet Street contingent - the Herald reports:
The air was electric at St Andrews today. The question on everybody's lips was: how would Tiger Woods front up to the British media, who have the reputation of attacking like bulldogs whenever there's a hint of juicy scandal in the air.
This Meet the Press circus was really the opening act of this week's British Open - or, as the Members at the traditional home of golf will pompously correct you, 'The Open Championship'.
Tiger Woods was ushered by his entourage into the press marquee via a side entrance - avoiding the gauntlet of the massed ranks of reporters, photographers and film crews.
And after a bit of golf-related shadow-boxing, the REAL questions began:
Questions about his personal affairs were deflected with all the skill of a football goalkeeper nudging the ball over the bar.
When asked about his divorce, he was adamant: "I'm not going into that," he replied tersely.
Did his changed public image affect his chances here? "It doesn't impact on it at all," said a stony-faced Woods.
The golfer was also asked about his quick trip home to Florida recently.
"Well, I just went home and had a great time with my kids. Normally I don't come over, play two days and then go back home."
We hope that the British press will now let Woods concentrate on his golf. He is still an incredibly good player, although the weight of his personal life is clearly affecting him, and he's under immense pressure.
But let's not forget that his has won the Open Championship the last two times it has been played at St Andrews. It is a course that he loves to play. Two fourth-place finishes in the preceding Majors indicate that Woods is not too far off a return to form, and looking at it from the perspective of golf alone, we would be delighted to see that happen this week.
The Scots have a saying about golf and the weather - "if there's nae rain and nae wind, it's nae golf". From what we heard this morning, there's certainly going to be golf this week, with some nasty weather forecast over the next couple of days. We'll be watching with interest when the TV coverage starts tonight, and will also be following the Open Championship on Facebook; St Andrews may be the centuries-old home of golf, but they're right up there in terms of communications!
