TIGER WOODS: It's actually become a lot easier to balance. To have other outlets in your life makes it more balanced. You don't want to have one thing dominate your life, which when I first came out here, that's what it was, nothing but golf. It had to be, I had to get my career started.
But as I got closer to O'Meara and being around him, he made pointedly aware of how important it is to have balance. If you want to survive out here for a long period of time you have to have balance, you have to have outlets. That's when I started getting other hobbies. He took me on a bunch of fishing trips. And now I've kind of gone away from the fishing that he does, fly fishing, I've gone to spear fishing. Obviously my personal life has changed by being married.
It's been fantastic for me to have that balance, it's tough playing out here all the time with all the things and distractions and pressures you have to deal with. But it's nice to have other outlets to get away. Other players have hunting, family. I don't have a family that Elin have started yet. So there's been a lot of different things that guys have used to get away from the game of golf. I didn't have that when I first came out, but now I do.
JOAN v.T. ALEXANDER: Thank you media for joining us on the phone and congratulations Tiger named 2005 PGA Player of the Year.
