DORAL, Florida (Tim Reynolds/AP) — Tiger Woods says he continues to feel better, though the 14-time major champion remains unsure when he can return to competitive golf.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida (AP) — Adam Scott knew the only way for him to remain relevant was to win golf tournaments.

Tiger Woods has it far easier. All he had to do was hit one shot in a simulator.

It started with Jack Nicklaus hosting nearly two dozen potential Ryder Cup players for dinner, a treat for anyone among the top 40 in the U.S. standings. He said he talked about how to prepare for big events, though it was not clear what else could be gleaned from the night except to hang out with golf’s greatest champion.

“I can’t imagine how them coming over to have dinner at an old man’s house is going to help any,” Nicklaus said.

alt(Mark Soltau/TigerWoods.com) — Embarking on a historical year for his foundation, Tiger sat down with CEO Rick Singer to reflect on the 20-year history and the exciting future that lies ahead.

Q: Describe what it feels like to look back on 20 years of the TWF?

A: If you would have told me we would help this many kids in the United States, and hopefully around the world shortly, I would have said you were crazy. I never dreamt we would be this big.

Initially, we were a junior golf foundation. We held clinics and workshops and tried to get kids interested in the game of golf. I never thought we would have the influence we have.
