Q. You said you felt entitled to what you were doing before, at the same time how were you able to rationalize that in your mind while it was going on?
Tiger Woods: Well, that's part of the problem I had, is the way I was thinking was not correct. And as part of where I was at, I was rationalizing and denying and in total denial at times. Whatever I did, I lied to myself, I lied to others, and just because I said -- just because I was winning golf tournaments doesn't mean a thing. The way I was thinking caused so much harm with the people that I love and care about the most on this planet.
Q. Did you only realize that after it became public?
TIGER WOODS: After I started going to treatment, that's when they started stripping all of that away from you.
Make sex scandal lemonade out of lemons.
TIGER WOODS: I haven't looked forward to that tee shot in a long time, not like this. It feels fun again. You know, that's something that's been missing. Have I been winning, have I been competing, have I been doing well? Yeah, I have. I've won numerous times the last few years but I wasn't having anywhere near the amount of fun. Why? Because look at what I was engaged in. When you live a life where you're lying all the time, life is not fun. And that's where I was. Now that's been stripped all away and here I am. And it feels fun again.
