Tiger had plenty to say after not committing to a 16th hole tee shot, driving out of bounds and finishing the last three holes at the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational poorly.

But another contending week has his now heading to The Masters with his game in strong shape at a tournament he's won four times. 

From this Golfweek roundup of his post round comments Sunday:

“I’m looking forward to it. I haven’t really thought that much about it, especially this week. I’ve been grinding and focusing on this week, trying to win this thing and now the tournament’s over, I’ll start to make some changes for Augusta, what kind of equipment setup I’m going to go with, some things I want to do with my swing. As crazy as this may sound I haven’t putted on bent grass in two years.”

Statistically, Tiger's putting is astounding, but as David Dusek of Golfweek notes, this also means an over-reliance on the flat stick.
