HERO WORLD CHALLENGE


December 6, 2014


Tiger Woods


WINDERMERE, FLORIDA

Q.  Considering how you were feeling prior to the round and during the round...
TIGER WOODS:  Well, wasn't easy and I fought hard.  That's about all I had.

Q.  Did you think of not playing?
TIGER WOODS:  Well, I wasn't doing too good at the beginning, but I thought I could hang in there.
If this fever just broke I thought I would be all right.  It finally broke on the front nine.

Q.  Do you have a diagnosis?
TIGER WOODS:  No.  Sick.

Q.  (No microphone.)
TIGER WOODS:  Yeah.  Yeah, that's the way it goes.

Q.  When did you lose your voice?
TIGER WOODS:  I been throwing up for hours.

Q.  (No microphone.)
TIGER WOODS:  Yeah, last night.

Q.  (No microphone.)
TIGER WOODS:  No, you know me.  I like to compete.  If I can go, I can go.  I'll give it everything I have.
This is different.  I wasn't in pain.  Just was a little bit under the weather.

Q.  Have you not been able to eat?
TIGER WOODS:  No.

Q.  No sleep?
TIGER WOODS:  No.  The sleep has been rough, yeah.

Q.  Did you play with a fever yesterday, too?
TIGER WOODS:  Yeah.

Q.  Which was worse, yesterday or today?
TIGER WOODS:  Well, yesterday's fever was higher, but today, you know, the nausea and the vomiting before and during the round, I didn't have that issue yesterday.

Q.  Have you dealt with a doctor at all?
TIGER WOODS:  Yeah, I'm on antibiotics.  Just waiting for it to kick in.

Q.  (No microphone.)
TIGER WOODS:  I hope it'll be gone soon.

Q.  (No microphone.)
TIGER WOODS:  Playing with Billy was fun.  He's a good kid.  We played fast, which was nice, so I didn't have to sit out in that heat for too long.

Q.  Does it help your game knowing you don't have a lot of time?
TIGER WOODS:¬† No, I just didn't have the‑‑ initially I didn't have the explosiveness.¬† I was just pretty slow.¬† As the round built on I was starting to feel better and started hitting the ball around my normal numbers.

Q.  But did you reach back for on that last one.
TIGER WOODS:  I did.  That was nice.  I haven't been able to do that for a while.

Q.  Mom over here so she can help you?
TIGER WOODS:¬† No, my mom is‑‑ she's been sick, too, as well, so she's trying to hang in there as best she can, too.

Q.¬† Can you take anything out of today game‑wise when you're feeling like this, just trying to get through it?
TIGER WOODS:  Yeah, not bad.  I'm only 15 back.  (Laughter.)

Q.  (No microphone.)
TIGER WOODS:  Yeah, well, it's going to be a busy year starting middle of the year on, because if we don't have a whole lot of breaks, and you throw in a couple overseas as well.
I'll have a pretty full schedule next year.

Q.  Think it will be any different from this year?
TIGER WOODS:  It'll be probably slightly different, yeah.
JOHN BUSH:  Tiger, thank you.
TIGER WOODS:  Thanks, guys.
