Hey, remember Tiger Woods?

The disgraced golfer hit the talk show circuit for the first time since his cataclysmic sex scandal and divorce that dominated headlines in late 2009 through mid-2010.

Yukking it up on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, Woods, 35, wasn't afraid to poke fun at himself.

"It's been a year and a half since you've been on the show. What you been up to?" Jimmy Fallon asked.

Smiling, Woods retorted: "Nothin', nothin'. Playing bad golf!"

Fallon admitted to Woods that his personal hardships were a boon to comics everywhere: "From a comedian's standpoint, and my monologue writers', thank you...Your awful pain, we laughed at your pain!"

Woods was up bright and early on Thursday morning for a less jokey chat with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.

Life as a single dad (he and Elin Nordegren finalized their divorce last August), to daughter Sam, 3, and Charlie, 2, he admitted, is "tough."

"But it's enjoyable. That's the work I love."

He added: "I just love being with them and seeing what they're doing, what they're capable of doing – the joys, just the shifts of interest. … It's just fun. We have a great time together."
