"I think he's grateful and thankful that his kids get to see a little bit of what he was before they were around", the two-time PGA Championship victor said.
The emotional aftermath of the Masters proved to be much to overcome for Woods, who didn't play any serious golf until April 27, almost two weeks following the victory. "I'm looking at him thinking 'you're insane, man'".
"I wanted to play at Quail Hollow, but to be honest with you, I wasn't ready yet to start the grind of practicing and preparing and logging all those hours again, " Woods said of the Wells Fargo Championship, which he skipped two weeks ago.
Woods practiced four times last week, including an 18-hole session at the Long Island public layout last Wednesday, two days after accepting the Presidential Medal of Freedom in a White House ceremony. "That's going to be the interesting part going forward".
"Would I like to play in the Olympics?"
A PGA committee on the American with Disabilities Act made the decision to allow John Daly to use a cart at this week's event, the championships director for the PGA of America said Tuesday.
Tiger on John Daly taking a cart this week: "I walked on a broken leg". "I can walk up a hill, I just can't walk down one".
He is also one of the few voices who have spoken in support of Daly's use of a golf cart this week.
The last man to use a buggy during a major was Casey Martin, in both the 1998 and 2012 US Opens.
"This is not only a big golf course, but this is going to be a long week the way the golf course is set up and potentially could play, " he said.
Woods will go for a fifth Wanamaker Trophy at this week's PGA Championship and next month he will bid for a fourth U.S. Open trophy at Pebble Beach. He was replaced by Kelly Kraft.
