Tiger Woods' estimated endorsements for 2010 are worth $22 million less than last year, according to Sports Illustrated's annual analysis of the highest-earning American athletes. Woods is still No. 1 on the list, as he has been for the rankings' seven years, but his estimated total earnings of more than $90 million are down 30 percent from nearly $128 million two years ago. Phil Mickelson is again No. 2 with total earnings of more than $61 million. His estimated endorsement income is $52 million; Woods' is $70 million.

BETHESDA -  Before Tiger Woods committed last week to playing in the Quicken Loans National, many figured that Congressional Country Club would look and feel very much like it did last year, when the absence of the world's former No. 1 player offered plenty of elbow room. It could be that way again this weekend. The crowds and major-championship buzz that followed the game's biggest draw through the first two rounds likely will disappear now that Woods, looking older than 38 and trying to find his game after being sidelined more than three months after back surgery, has missed the cut. Coming into Friday's second round at 3-over-par, mostly the result of poor first-round putting, Woods struggled in all facets of his game, shooting a 4-over 75. His two-day total of 7-over-par 149 was 13 shots off the lead and four strokes off the cut line.

I swore off 4:30 a.m. wakeup calls for the British Open two years ago, when Louie Oosthuizen introduced himself to the golfing world -- and me -- by winning at St. Andrews in a runaway. But back then, Tiger Woodswas in the  midst of what seemed to be a never-ending free fall from the top. It had been a tough year for Woods when he arrived at golf's birthplace in the summer of 2010. His image was shot after details emerged about his serial infidelity. His marriage was over. His then 34-year-old body seemed to be breaking down.

BETHESDA - Tiger Woods had a feeling his first competitive round in more than three months after back surgery was not going to be easy. It was not his back that gave the 38-year-old Woods trouble in Thursday's opening round of the Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club. It was his hands. The touch around the greens that has often eluded Woods since he won the last of his 14 major championships six years ago was missing until the final six holes, when three birdies helped him overcome a terrible start to finish with a 3-over par 74. Still, Woods didn't make a putt longer than 10 feet, missed several short birdie and par save possibilities, and didn't chip particularly well.

A more human Woods Dave Hyde, Sun Sentinel This was a Tiger Woods we had never seen. Human. Sincere. Contrite. Within the admittedly cool and controlling confines of his personality, he seemed like a person trying to get his patch of life in order. He said all that could be said. He used words like "deeply sorry" and "irresponsible" and "selfish." He said, "I'm the only one to blame." He also gave as good and simple an explanation of how he lost his way. "I felt that I had worked hard my entire life and deserved to enjoy all the temptations around me," he said.

Every so often, Tiger Woods has seemed, well, human. Not the guy who walked on water in the EA Sports ad. Or the robot who refused to crack a smile while clubbing the field by 15 shots at the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. Two such moments stand out: In 2006, Woods didn't play between the Masters and U.S. Open while mourning his father, Earl. Observers recall that Woods looked sharp in practice rounds for the Open but had trouble focusing during the main event. He shot 76-76, missing the cut in a major for the first time in his professional career.

Tiger Woods is receiving treatment at a sex rehabilitation clinic in Mississippi, according to Benoit Denizet-Lewis, the author of a book titled "America Anonymous: Eight Addicts in Search of a Life." He's also a recovering sex addict and wrote in his blog Monday that Woods was in a Hattiesburg clinic, citing an unnamed source. Officials at the clinic have not confirmed that Woods is there. Denizet-Lewis has written for the New York Times Magazine, and spent some time at the same clinic, Pine Grove Behavioral Health & Addiction Services, a few years ago. He wrote that the programs at the clinic include group therapy sessions and family and couple's therapy.

Tiger Woods will be holding a news conference this afternoon at Congressional Country Club to promote the return of his AT&T National tournament. The event moved to the suburbs of Philadelphia last summer while theU.S. Open was being played at the Bethesda club. In researching a story for Tuesday's newspaper, I came across an interesting stat: Woods is currently in the worst three-tournament stretch of his legendary 16-year career. After winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March by five shots -- prompting even the cynical Johnny Miller to proclaim that "He's back!"

Phil Mickelson no longer is the only man with a chance to topple Tiger Woods from atop the world rankings. Coming off his runner-up finish at the British Open, Lee Westwood has inched close enough to put Woods in his sights at this week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. If the English pro wins, Woods would have to finish second to remain No. 1. "I'm feeling refreshed and ready to go again," said Westwood, who has been nursing a calf injury since before the British Open.

ORLANDO, Fla. - At first Arnold Palmer said he would keep an opinion regarding Tiger Woods to himself. Then he let it out. "The best thing he can do is to open up and let a bunch of guys shoot at him," Palmer said. "That's just my thought." Translation: Palmer believes Woods should sit down with a full contingent of reporters and answer questions about his four-plus-month absence from the PGA Tour, which was brought on by a sex scandal. "That might be the best way to move on," Palmer added.

Birdie runs seemed to be the biggest difference between an average score and a good score in the opening round of the Quicken Loans National on Thursday at Congressional Country Club. First-round leader Greg Chalmers of Australia put together three straight birdies to close the front nine and finished at 5-under-par 66. Erik Compton also had four in a row on the front - his back nine - to shoot 68. Chalmers leads Ricky Barnes and Fredrik Jacobson of Sweden by one stroke.

Tiger Woods has long been known for wearing red and black on Sunday, his wardrobe of choice for nearly all of his 79 victories on the PGA Tour. When the 38-year-old tees off Thursday for the first time in a tour event in more than three months, Woods and the rest of the field will be thinking about how much rust he will be wearing. The atmosphere for his practice round Wednesday at Congressional Country Club during the pro-am for the Quicken Loans National was reminiscent of when he played here in the 1997 U.S. Open a couple of months after winning the Masters by a dozen shots.

BETHESDA - Like the superstar athletes who befriended and mentored him early in his career as he watched them grow old, Tiger Woods keeps staring at his own golfing mortality. Coming off a three-month layoff following back surgery, Woods returns to the PGA Tour this week for the Quicken Loans National at Congressional Country Club with a bit of a different game than the one he has played for the past 18 years as a pro. “Just like M.J., I've got the fadeaway,” Woods said, referring to one of his longtime confidants, Michael Jordan.

No round of professional golf can be played on the Blue Course at Congressional Country Club without, it seems, comparing it to the events of two years ago, to the 111th U.S. Open in which Rory McIlroy appeared to make a mockery of the place. So here came Thursday, the first round of the AT&T National, just two weeks removed from the most recent U.S. Open, held at Merion Golf Club. The difference between a major and a regular PGA Tour event can be found in the length of the rough, the speed of the greens, the distance from tee to flag, the tension in the players' necks.

Tiger Woods, Microsoft and the Tea Party are all reasserting themselves. Welcome to your post-weekend trends report for May 13, 2013. Woods won his 78th PGA event Sunday in Ponte Vedra Beach, showing further recovery from a series of injuries and marital scandals. The IRS, meanwhile, was hoping to nip its own growing scandal in the bud, as allegations that the agency engaged in political harrassment were backed up over the weekend by leaked portions of an official report. At least one office of the agency actively targeted conservative groups' applications for nonprofit status, according to the report, which put the Obama administration into message-control mode over the weekend.

When the United States Golf Association packed up its corporate tents after the 2002 Senior Open concluded, Caves Valley returned to its roots as a private club that was selective in the tournaments it hosted. Mandated to promote the amateur ranks, the Owings Mills club welcomed a handful of events in the intervening years - none involving professionals. That will change in the summer of 2014, when the Ladies Professional Golf Association's inaugural International Crown comes to Baltimore County for a four-day, match-play event featuring four-player teams from eight different countries.

Yes: PGA Championship Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune He showed us power. He showed us touch. The only winning trait Tiger Woods didn't have at Torrey Pines was patience. He got frustrated Monday when the tortoises in front of him caused his round to take nearly four hours. Four hours for 11 holes. Woods is impatient. He has not won a major since he limped to a playoff victory at the 2008 U.S. Open. Last year he teased us time and again. He won two weeks before the Masters.

He's winner off course Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune Rory McIlroy aspires to be more than Tiger Woods, and here's hoping he gets there. As a golfer, he's just as talented. "Such a fluid motion," Luke Donald marveled. Not that that means he'll get to 14 major victories. It has taken Phil Mickelson 20 years to win four. Ernie Els has three. And there are a mess of talented players (Davis Love III and Tom Weiskopf come to mind) who have only one. Where McIlroy already has Tiger crushed is off the course.

How some of our columnists and editors feel about the two-stroke penalty given to Tiger Woods at the Masters Saturday: Peter Schmuck, columnist: By most accounts, the ruling was correct and penalty appropriate, which is a sign that professional golf has evolved from the time when a player could have days of honorable competition wiped out by some subtle violation he wasn't even aware he committed. I'm still disgusted over the silly ruling that knocked Dustin Johnson out of the PGA Championship in 2010.
