“I think their work ethic and how they prepare and what they have to do in the offseason and during the season _ no one has any idea,” Woods said.

Those close to Woods remember a time when his practice time was almost sacrosanct, when business and everything else had to be put on hold for two weeks or more at a time, if that’s what his playing schedule demanded.

No more.

One guess is that it won’t change until the divorce papers are signed _ whenever that is _ but there’s a gauge that could be useful in the meantime. Woods has let slip that he’s practicing less, that he has more distractions than ever and as a result less and less time to prepare. Until that pendulum swings back in the other direction, my guess is that not much else about Woods‘ game is going to change.
