Tiger Woods will never stop having fun in golf. And he is eager to win a new title.

Woods arrived in Shenzhen Tuesday on the Nike "Make It Matter" Tour, just two days after he finished a tied fourth in the 2011 Masters Golf tournament at the Augusta National Golf Club. The icon of golf played for nearly 90 minutes with more than 200 young Chinese golfers, attracting more than 30,000 fans to watch.

"It was not the best of me, but it is coming. I am expecting a new championship before the U.S. Open in June," Woods told reporters at the Mission Hills Golf Club.

Ten years has passed since his first visit to China. Ten years is a long time, but not long enough to make his glorious memory to fade -- he won three out of four major championships in 2010.

But the key word for Woods after 10 years is still "better".

"I know I can get to another level, I know I can put better, I know I can shot better, it is going to be a better way out there," said the 35-year-old.

But at his age, Woods obviously is more willing to talk about his family, kids and old memories.

"They were watching and cheering on TV when I was playing, they were inside it," said the father of two.

"When I was playing with my son, I would remember the time when I was playing with my father."

Whether or not the ever golf dominator could return to his peak, Woods will never stop seeking fun from there, even to the future generations.

"If you want your kids to enjoy it, you'd provide an environment. For me I look back at my childhood, it is nothing negative, and it was a great fun," said Woods.
