AUGUSTA -- Just one day after two television interviews in which Tiger Woods talked about he is preparing his game for the Masters, the world's number one golfer practiced at Augusta National.

News 12 has learned that Woods ate dinner at the course and plans to stay at the course and practice on Tuesday.

He left Augusta Tuesday afternoon from Augusta Regional airport.

Woods practiced at the course Monday, as he gets ready to return from a 144-day layoff from professional golf on April 8th. The Golf Channel first reported the story.

In a television interview with The Golf Channel, Woods said he is "starting to get my feel back. I know how to play the golf course and that helps a lot. I just got to play it."

Woods last won the Masters in 2005, his 4th time winning the season's first major.

Stay with News 12 Sports as we continue to follow this story and get you ready for Masters Week 2010.

    Welcome back, Tiger. I mised you. You've apologized to those who meant the most to you, and now this incident should be left alone. The ones who've judged you are more than likely guilty of similar actions, and are attempting to crush you before being crushed themselves. As mentioned by some others, your apology is in the forefront, and your personal actions should be laid to rest, becuz what happened in your life was PERSONAL. Only your business. Now we should drop it and ask forgiveness for our imperfections, and watch Tiger do his thing on the golf course. By the way, God has no respect of person. A sin is a sin, no matter how great or small. Only God himself can and will judge us. Not man. The alleged female company that Tiger kept is no less guilty. They knew who he was. But then again, who are we to judge. So let's eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we may die.

    Tiger Woods is a human being. He made some really stupid decisions, but the man is human. He is not the worst person ever because he did whatever with whomever. There are some very bad people in this world and Tiger Woods isn't even close to them. He is, or has, suffered the consequences of his poor decisions. He has publicly apologized, which he didn't have to. The rest is none of anybody's business. If you knew about the personal lives of some athletes, politicians, etc. you would shake your head in dismay. The difference between Tiger and them is Tiger's dirt got brought to light. Mr. Woods should get the help he deems necessary and get on with his life. That means being a good person AND a good golfer.

    If one of my family members had wrecked a vehicle while under the influence of pain killers, we would be charged with driving while impaired...DWI.

    First of all, they were not WOMEN he had affairs with, they were whores/sluts/prostitutes, only lookin for 15 minutes of fame. He made mistakes by engaging in these affairs with these gold diggers, has made his apology to society (not that he had to do that), and also is trying to make ammends with his family, wife, fans, etc. Let the guy get on with his life. I used to think he was a egotistical jerk and thought he was perfect before all this happened, but now we all see he is just a man that made some unwise decisions. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. I respect the guy a whole lot more than I did before all this happened, esp. since he has been in a treatment program. I also think a lot of these actions stemmed from going through all he went through with his father's illness and death. That makes people do things they normally would not do. Give the guy a break.

    dear Guest, the Masters is not a PGA sanctioned event. Also, I work with many materialistic, narcissistic and overall despicable example of a human beings on a daily basis; they are very good at what they do and thus should continue keeping the general population healthy.

    Tiger is a disgrace to humanity and the name of golf. He should not be allowed to play in the Masters and likewise be banned from the game of golf for life. As an old sport attempts to attract young fans, its most popular representative has behaved like a materialistic, narcissistic and overall despicable example of a human being. If the PGA wants to salvage what little respect the game of professional golf has left, they should ban Tiger from ever playing in a PGA sanctioned event again. Period.
