JACKSONVILLE, Florida: The only questions Tiger Woods is fielding before his next tournament are from his fans.

Instead of a news conference before this week's Wells Fargo Championship, Woods answered 19 questions that were submitted through Facebook and Twitter.

Among the questions: Does he think he has a good chance to win? How does he decide between putting a 5-wood or a 2-iron in the bag? And what was his favorite memory of The Players Championship?

Fans were told he would answer questions about his next two events: Wells Fargo and The Players Championship. The only question regarding the Masters, where he tied for 40th and was criticized for kicking a 9-iron in disgust, was the difference between his game in winning at Bay Hill and the Masters.
