(AP Photo/Andrew Brownbill) (Newser) – Tiger Woods is officially back in the saddle. The promiscuous golf star was seen practicing at Augusta National Golf Club yesterday, a day after giving his first interviews since the scandal broke. Woods intends to return for the Masters on April 8. “I’m excited to get back and play,” he told ESPN on Sunday. “I'm excited to get to see the guys again. I really miss a lot of my friends out there. I miss competing. But still, I still have a lot more treatment to do, and just because I'm playing, doesn't mean I'm gonna stop going to treatment."
