“He again confirmed reports that he had met with authorities to discuss his relationship with Canadian doctor Anthony Galea -- who treated Woods' surgically repaired knee -- but said "I can't go into any of that because of the fact that it's an open case so far." And then there was this exchange: "Tom Watson has said you need to clean up your act on the golf course. He's gone on record. Many of us over the years have heard you use the F word, we've seen you spit on the course, and we've seen you throw tantrums like chucking your clubs around. Are you willing to cut out all those tantrums this week and respect the home of golf?" Woods: "I'm trying to become a better player and a better person, yes." This will be Woods' seventh tournament this year and it is the longest he has gone into a season without a victory since 1998. "I'm looking forward to getting out there and playing, and I understand how to play this golf course," said Woods, who has played three practice rounds so far at St. Andrews. "It's a matter of going out there and putting it together and putting it together at the right time." As for his personal life, Woods spoke mostly in generalities. "All that really matters is I have two beautiful kids, and I'm trying to be the best dad I can possibly be, and that's the most important thing of all," Woods said. Last week, Woods took a break from his Open preparations in Europe to return to the U.S. to spend time with his children, 3-year-old Sam and 1-year-old Charlie. "That was an incredible experience, to hang out with my kids," he said. "Normally I don't come over here, play two days and then go back home. But the reason I did is obviously for my kids, and we had a great time." Bob Harig covers golf for ESPN.com. Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
