Tiger Woods has a lot on his mind these days. For the first time in four years he's not holding a major title, and soon he'll head across the ocean to play the British Open on a course he's never seen.
For most of this week he's been preoccupied with a tournament he helped found and serves as the host. Odds are on Sunday he'll stand on the 18th green and present himself the winner's check.
Trying to be the greatest golfer ever is a tough business. There's no room for mistakes and, with each passing major championship, it becomes more difficult, at least statistically, to pass the record of 18 major titles won by Jack Nicklaus.
The reason why Woods even has a chance is that he's so focused, so single-minded. He doesn't just play golf, he works at it.
