Tiger just golfed. And even though he remained the most public of figures, he was alone on the course, utterly alone among his adoring fans, waiting until his final putt on the 72nd hole to flash a frozen smile and tip his cap to no one in particular. Let Phil glad-hand the gallery, let John Daly clown around, let Steve Stricker be classy and well-liked. Tiger, like Jay Leno, cared about one thing and one thing only: winning. Still does.
