AUGUSTA, Ga. – Tiger Woods was asked Tuesday at Augusta National if it feels any different competing now than it did, say, in his earlier days on the PGA Tour.

“Competing is still the same,” he said. “I’m trying to beat everybody out there. That hasn’t changed.

“The only difference is that, yeah, I won the Masters when Jordan [Spieth] was in diapers. That’s the difference is that guys are now younger, a whole generation of kids are coming out.”

Woods was speaking about his historic romp here in 1997. Spieth was born in July 1993.

“I can’t confirm that,” Spieth said jokingly when asked if he was, in fact, in diapers. “I’m embarrassed; I just came out of diapers a couple years ago.

“Let’s see, I was 3, almost 4. So I don’t know, are kids still in diapers at 3? Pull-ups?”
