"The U.S. Open is usually one of the most grueling weeks of golf," she said. "So what would you do off the course in order to be at ease and relax?"

Woods smiled and laughed and loosened up a Q&A that mostly focused on the U.S. Open and his beef with Sergio Garcia.

"Didn't expect that," he said. "Well, off the course, we have a great crew at the house and we're going to have fun. Tomorrow, make sure you're — is it 6:30 dinner? Is that all right? OK. Perfect."

LOVE, PHILLY: Tiger Woods obviously hasn't been booed in Philly.

Woods played in the AT&T National in suburban Philadelphia in 2010 and returned the next year to promote the tournament even though he couldn't play because of an injury.

Area golf fans who hadn't seen important golf in Philly for decades flocked to Woods and made him feel as loved as Julius Erving or Bob Clarke.

Woods returned the love Tuesday at Merion Golf Club.

"This is one of the great sporting towns in the country," he said. "They're passionate about all sports. We had our event at Aronimink and it was unbelievable. It was electric. I think this week will be the same thing."
