Q. Feel a little better today, Tiger?
TIGER WOODS: Yeah, I feel a lot better.
Q. And the situation overall, were you into it mentally today as opposed to yesterday?
TIGER WOODS: Yeah, yesterday was a day where I was thinking about my Dad all day. I didn't want to play because, as I say, there are more important things than golf: my dad's health. But today I knew the situation was under control, and my dad is feeling a lot better, so I felt I could come out here and focus on my game.
Q. It's amazing what kind of mental game this is, in more ways than one?
TIGER WOODS: When your thoughts and prayers are somewhere else, it's kind of tough to play.
Q. Can you tell us about your round today?
TIGER WOODS: Overall, it was pretty good. I let it slip away at the end on the back 9; it could have been a lot better. But it's just Southern Hills. It reaches up and bites you if you're not careful.
