Tiger Woods has apologized to his fellow golfers for subjecting them to a barrage of questions about his private life, and says the reception of the Augusta National fans "blew me away."
Woods also revealed Monday that he had five stitches in his mouth after the infamous Thanksgiving night car crash that exposed details of his sordid private life.
He's been taking questions from reporters today for the first time since that crash. Woods is in Augusta, Ga., for the Masters tournament that marks his return to the pro golf tour.
Woods played a practice round with Fred Couples, and Jim Furyk joined them at the 13th hole. The crowd gave a tepid but respectful response, and Woods even stopped to sign autographs on the way to the practice range.
