RUSH: Snerdley just asked me if the Tiger humiliation tour is over. I haven’t been able to catch much of this and I didn’t want to join it in progress for any of it. He’s been pretty somber. I haven’t been able to judge much of it just from listening to it a couple seconds so I’ll have to wait. I know we’re rolling on it. If there’s anything interesting come out of it, I don’t know what the questions have been like, but we’re gonna deal with all that, Snerdley, when it happens, if it’s worthwhile. But I don’t think we’re anywhere near the end of the rehab tour. Nowhere near it. This is the beginning of it, Snerdley. But when did you ever watch golf? You don’t care about golf. (interruption) Okay, so you want to watch Tiger play the Masters but you’re tired of the rehab tour. Well, you gotta put up with the rehab tour if you’re going to watch the Masters. It’s just that simple.
RUSH: Here’s a sound bite from Tiger, by the way, question: ‘Do you still feel the same way about the pursuit of Jack Nicklaus’ records, winning golf tournaments, or does that have to take a different perspective now considering what’s happened to you?’
WOODS: What I’ve done here, it puts it in perspective; it’s that it’s not about championships, it’s about how you live your life. And I hadn’t done that the right way for a while, and I need to change that. And going forward, I need to be a better man going forward than I was before. And just because I’ve gone through treatment doesn’t mean it stops. I’m trying as hard as I possibly can each and every day to get my life better and better and stronger, and if I win championships along the way, so be it.
RUSH: Now, some people are going to interpret this as Tiger saying to hell with Jack Nicklaus, to hell with winning championships. If that happens, so be it. If people believe this, what he’s basically saying here is that ‘I’ve got a whole different focus.’
