Amazing read on 24-year-old Jeremiah Woodling, one of the very few African-American golfers who will tee it up on Tour this year:
Jeremiah avoids swing instructors. To build his game, he has studied hours of golf swings, including those of Tiger Woods, Adam Scott and, most recently, Rory McIlroy. After watching these videos, he takes a golf club in front of a big mirror to figure out the difference between "feel and real." (ESPN)

Tiger Woods in 2006: "I’d be seriously upset if I went my whole career and never won [the Northern Trust Open]. It’s one of the oldest events on our tour. It’s played every year on one of our best courses. It always attracts a strong field. These are exactly the tournaments you want to win." He hasn't played since. (The New York Times)
