Tiger Woods' first public interviews since the November car crash that set a "Mousetrap"-like chain of embarrassing events into motion revealed, well, not all that much.
Woods, who will make his return to golf at the Masters, spoke with ESPN and the Golf Channel, who each aired their sessions last night.
As you can see from the video, Tiger seemed poised, rehearsed and (here's hoping he was being genuine) contrite.
He declined to go into specifics about why he lost control of his car that night or why he was in treatment, but admitted he'd hurt a lot of people.
"I've done some pretty bad things in my life," Woods said.
The interviews were limited to five minutes in length, so they weren't long enough to get deep into the issues. Not that Woods would have opened up that much anyway.
For him, I think just putting his face back out there and answering anything is a victory right now. He's going to have to weather the storm for a little bit upon his return, but at some point -- perhaps not all that far off -- all of these scandal-related questions will be out of bounds for the media.
What do you guys take out of this question-and-answer session, if anything?
