Granted, this insight from golf commentator David Feherty does go back a few months, but revisiting it now that Tiger Woods has finalized his divorce with Elin and appears to be on the verge of moving on with the next stage of his life seems well worthwhile and actually could have the effect of making Feherty look all the more prophetic.

BANGKOK (AP) — Tiger Woods says he's looking forward to giving something back to Thailand when he makes a quick visit to his mother's home country for the first time in 10 years to play a one-day skins tournament next month.

His tournament has one of its best fields, with defending champion Jim Furyk and Woods joining a dozen other Ryder Cup players.
The list includes three major champions - all but Masters champ Phil Mickelson - along with newcomers Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson.
The two sponsor exemptions were awarded to Camilo Villegas and Stewart Cink.
In his last performance, Woods was 9 under through 15 holes when he beat Francesco Molinari in singles, playing the final seven holes in 7-under-par. Europe still won the Ryder Cup, although Woods had his best week in the event, going 3-1.
"My game is coming around," Woods said. "So the way I played at the Ryder Cup ... I know I have two more events prior to the Chevron event. Hopefully, I can get two more W's before I get to Chevron, and see what happens."
Along with his personal strife, Woods went through three teachers this year - Hank Haney and Sean Foley, with Woods as his own instructor for a three-month stretch in between.
He said he is still taking in the concepts of Foley, a Canadian-born swing coach based in Orlando, Fla., but that the changes are coming together quicker than previous times when he revamped his game.
"I don't have it all dialed in yet," Woods said. "But I figured if I could play the way I did in the singles match, which I hadn't done that all year, that's a positive sign."

NEWPORT -- The Ryder Cup is getting personal for Tiger Woods. Interrupting an otherwise dull news conference Tuesday, Woods fired back at a comment Rory McIlroy made six weeks ago that, "I would love to face" the world's No. 1 player in the Ryder Cup unless his game rapidly improved.

ATLANTA (AP) — Tom Callahan first met Earl Woods in 1996 at the Greater Milwaukee Open, and he spent the next 10 years listening to stories and gaining insight. Few others had such access and trust.
