Golf: Woods in it for the fun

TIGER WOODS insists there is no danger of him falling back into bad old ways now he is starting to pick up his travelling US Tour life again.

"No, not at all – not after what I've been through and the treatment," said the world No.1 on the eve of his second comeback event, The Quail Hollow Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina, which also features Masters champion Phil Mickelson. The Masters champion fell ill on Tuesday and was treated for dehydration after managing only five holes of the pro-am, but was expected to play later today.

A sex scandal kept Woods out of golf for nearly five months but he managed fourth place in his first week back at Augusta and, after initial disappointment he had not done better, the 34-year-old now reflects it was a "pretty reasonable" effort.

"I have had a lot of struggles internally for a while now and that's one of the reasons why it wasn't that much fun. The game is now where it used to be and where it should be. It should be fun. It is a game."
