Although it had been known for months that Earl Woods was losing his battle against cancer, it was a hurried cross-country trip home by Tiger Woods to his father's bedside that signaled the end was near. "Just trying to make him understand that I love him dearly and just want him to hang in there and keep fighting, which he always does," said Tiger Woods, appearing misty-eyed during the Players Championship in late March, after his 24-hour trip from Florida to California. When Mr. Woods succumbed yesterday at the age of 74, at the tract home in Cypress, Calif.

On this day, Earl Woods can most assuredly kick back and relax. Read the morning paper. Even play a little golf. Or he can observe the fruits of his labor, watching his 21-year-old son take a swing at it on television. This year alone, Tiger Woods has won two PGA tournaments, including the Masters in April, and was favored to win the U.S. Open. If these accomplishments are a sample of the things that a father can be proud of, Earl Woods' face might hurt from excessive smiling.

John Cook said he knew the first round of the Masters would not be your typical stroll through the flora yesterday morning when he saw how close a cut was given to the No. 1 green at the Augusta National Golf Club. "When we got there, it was blue, and that was at 10 minutes of 9 [his tee time]," Cook said. "If we don't get any [rain], the people will be laughing at us. "Then again, they're probably laughing at us now," he added. There wasn't a lot of laughter emanating from the 86 contestants yesterday.

Tiger Woods described his day as "sporadic," which could have meant a golf game that left him seven shots behind yesterday at The Players Championship, or a mind that wandered between his ailing father in California and the perils of the TPC at Sawgrass. He wasn't fatigued from a 24-hour, coast-to-coast trip to check on Earl Woods. Nor was he disgusted with five bogeys that offset five birdies on a cool, damp afternoon in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., that left him closer to the cut line than the 7-under 65s posted early by Davis Love III and Jim Furyk.

Tiger Woods' father, angry at not being invited to the Ryder Cup by the PGA of America, said he would skip the three-day golf competition between the United States and Europe. "This is my protest at the way they treat the parents," Earl Woods was quoted as saying in yesterday's The Mail on Sunday of London. "It makes no sense, and it's not justified. Tiger is only 21 and does not have a girlfriend, but they don't think enough of the parents to invite them instead. " The PGA of America pays the expenses of wives or girlfriends of the 12 U.S. golfers to the biennial event, which begins Friday in Spain.

THANK HEAVEN FOR nicknames. Eldrick Woods sounds like a mock-tudor townhouse development in some former cornfield, behind the Cracker Barrel and the Hampton Inn off the new bypass exit. Can you be an elite athlete, a master of the sporting domain, and be called Eldrick? The headlines would certainly suffer: Eldrick stalks field, 2 strokes back Eldrick lurking as final round approaches So-and-so hopes to tame Eldrick Fortunately for Eldrick, when his father served in Vietnam he had a friend - a South Vietnamese officer, Vuong Dang Phong - whom Earl Woods nicknamed "Tiger" because of his courage.

Tiger Woods decided yesterday to skip the PGA Tour's season-opening Mercedes-Benz Championship next week. Woods, who was skiing with his family last week in Colorado, said he did not have time to get his game ready and he wanted to spend more time with his family. He has won six consecutive PGA Tour events, a streak that will remain on hold until Jan. 25 in the Buick Invitational in San Diego, where Woods is the two-time and defending champion. It is the second consecutive year that Woods will not play the winners-only tournament.

Tiger Woods wrapped up a remarkable season yesterday at the Target World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, Calif., seizing the lead from U.S. Open champion Geoff Ogilvy in just three holes and coasting to a 6-under 66 for a four-shot victory in the last tournament of the year. He started the year with a playoff victory in the Buick Invitational and ended it by beating an elite, 16-man field to win his tournament for the third time in its 8-year history. Between those bookend trophies was a mixture of triumph and tragedy.

Tiger Woods is skipping the Tour Championship next week for the first time in his career, saying he was mentally and physically tired from a hectic stretch through the Ryder Cup. "I'm confident that this extended break will help me to recharge my batteries for the 2007 season," Woods said on his Web site. It was a huge blow to the season-ending Tour Championship at East Lake, the PGA Tour's version of an All-Star Game for the top 30 players on its money list. Masters champion Phil Mickelson previously has said he is done playing for the year, and with Stephen Ames out with a back injury, the 27-man field will be the smallest since the Tour Championship began in 1987.

THE RELATIONSHIP between 76ers coach Doug Collins and second-year guard Evan Turner is not a strained one. There is no personal animosity, no grudges held. Has the coach been as complimentary about Turner as he has other players? Probably not. Has Turner been in his coach's doghouse more than most other players? Probably. But it appears it is all part of the teaching process Collins believes Turner needs in order to become the best NBA player he can be. In order for that to happen, Collins is convinced Turner needs structure, so he and associate head coach Michael Curry have taken to providing that recently.

Noted golfer Eldrick Woods used the P-word twice during a 20-minute news conference Tuesday at Aronimink Golf Club. Once, he was referring to his game. Once, he was talking about that little series of image and homewrecking revelations regarding his personal life - which you may have heard something about. Both times, Woods used the P-word to acknowledge to the assembled media that he is, in fact, not Perfect . "I certainly have made mistakes," Woods said with delightful understatement.

FOLLOWING IN THE naked footsteps of Tiger mistress Mindy Lawton, a second Tiger mistress has chatted with Britain's News of the World. It's probably best that the World's No. 1 golfer is taking some time away from the links. Jamie Jungers told NotW that she had sex with Tiger in his marital bed in May 2006, on the night his father died. Yikes. According to Jamie, Tiger had visited his dad in a hospice, while she waited for him at his home, and when he returned the pair worked away Tiger's stress.

THERE USED TO BE a time when, if you wanted to worship your favorite athlete, all you had to do was seclude yourself in your bedroom and stare at all the posters and magazine pullouts plastered across your wall. For John Ziegler, that just wasn't enough when it came to his favorite athlete, Tiger Woods. So by the time Tiger consecutively had won the U.S. Open, British Open and the PGA Championship in 2000, already placing himself among some of the elite in the game, Ziegler was creating his own news with a Web site called tigerwoodsisgod.
