After five months absent from golf course, Tiger Woods starts to get his magic touch back. On his 2010 debut in The Masters, he managed to finished in 4th position, scored 277 hits or 11 under par.
That can be consider as a good result, because it was only 1 hit lower than when Tiger Woods won The Masters in 2002 and 2005. In the last day, he even managed to scored five birdies in the last nine holes. Unfortunately, his competitors like the champion Phil Mickelson, Lee Westwood, and Anthony Kim are on fire at the moment.
But one thing to notice, Woods who stated will act different, didn't seem to changed at all. He still cursed and said dirty words when his shots gone wrong. On the third day, he get caught by TV microphone emotionally saying trash like "Tiger, you're suck!" or "Jesus Christ!" with high tone.

When he first talked to the media after his scandals resurfaced, Woods made a promise that he will be more polite and patient in golf match. He won't act emotional or jumping around when he makes a good shot.
Jim Nantz of CBS TV commented on Tiger Woods behavior, "If I said what he said on the air, I would be fired. I read in the USA Today and it was called “mild language.” Someone on my broadcast dismissed it as him having a camera in his face. Well, guess what? Phil Mickelson had a camera in his face all week and did you even hear him come close to approaching that? He didn’t hit every shot the way he wanted. Have you ever heard Arnold Palmer or Jack Nicklaus use that kind of language? What are the parameters between what’s right or wrong?"
I guess it's not that easy to change someone's bad habits.
