Woods believes he can win Masters again

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

AUGUSTA, GA (AP) - Tiger Woods says "nothing's changed" on the golf course, and he still expects to win the Masters in his return to competition after a devastating personal scandal.    

UPDATE, MON 4:30 PM: Tiger Woods began his comeback with an extraordinary 35-minute news conference at Augusta National on Monday, taking full blame for the personal failings that led to revelations of multiple extramarital affairs.

Woods refused to say why he spent 45 days in rehabilitation, but says he intends to continue with his treatment.

He also said he received five stitches in his mouth after the infamous Thanksgiving night car crash outside his home, but stressed that he's not addicted to prescription drugs.

While his wife, Elin, won't be joining him at Augusta, Woods still believes he can win his fifth green jacket after a five-month layoff.

Previously: Tiger Woods wasted no time getting some practice in for his return to golf, teeing off shortly after the course opened as fans streamed in by the thousands to get a look.

Woods and Fred Couples were off in the second group just after 8 a.m. Monday on a pristine day at Augusta National. The two played down the first fairway before most fans even got into position to see the world's best player preparing for the start of the Masters.

Woods also practiced the day before, getting a big hug from an old friend, along with some encouraging words for his return to competition at the Masters.

He'll be holding a press conference Monday at 2 p.m. for the first time since his sex scandal erupted last year.
