Tiger Woods made his return to golf, Thursday, to a mostly polite applause from fans at the Masters.
It was the golfer's first tournament appearance in five months -- and since the public revelation of his infidelity.
Because of the latter, not all fans were adoring. Woods received some booing as he made his way down the fairway.
Just before the start of the competition Billy Payne, chairman of the Masters tournament, had some stinging words for the world's number one golf player.
"With fame and fortune comes responsibility, not invisibility," he said. "It is not simply the degree of his conduct that is so aggregious here, it is the fact that he disappointed all of us, and more importantly our kids and our grandkids."
"I hope he now realizes that every kid he passes on the course wants his swing, but would settle for his smile," Payne added.
Woods has apologized openly for his actions. He has also gone through a therapy program.
