ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Tiger Woods' longtime swing coach resigned Monday night, leaving the world's No. 1 player without one of his top advisers as he tries to rebuild his game. Hank Haney said in a statement to the Golf Channel that he enjoyed working with Woods but he thinks it's time for him to step aside as his coach. "I will always look back upon our past half-dozen years together as my best days in professional golf," he said. "It would be a dream of any coach to have a student like Tiger Woods and for me it has come true.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Tiger Woods was injured in an accident early Friday when his sports utility vehicle struck a fire hydrant and a tree near his Orlando-area mansion in a gated waterfront community. The Florida Highway Patrol said the world's top golfer hit the hydrant and then a tree after pulling out of his driveway in his 2009 Cadillac SUV. Woods spokesman Glenn Greenspan said the golfer was treated at Health Central Hospital and released in good condition. The accident report classified Woods' injuries as serious, but patrol spokeswoman Kim Montes said troopers consider the injuries serious if they require more than minor medical attention.

America likes its sports heroes to have a little humility. Maybe that's why so many people have fallen in love with Tiger Woods. A little cockiness is OK, and Woods can show that from time to time. Remember his putt in the PGA Championship two years ago, the one that he pointed at and followed into the hole? Yes, a little over the top, but Tiger's game allows that every so often. And that's why it was so refreshing to see Tiger raising his hands triumphantly on the 17th green at the British Open on Saturday.

Tiger this. Tiger that. Is it me or does it seem the entire PGA Tour revolves around Tiger Woods? Some say it should. After all, the game has never been more popular since Tiger joined the Tour. And, hosts of tournaments will tell you that a tournament will make more money and be more popular if Tiger Woods plays. But the game is not Tiger Woods and Tiger Woods is not the game. Even Sunday, when unknown Rich Beem was winning his first major, it seemed that Tiger was on every announcers' lips.

Tuesday, Feb. 22 9 p.m. on CBS "'One Day at a Time' Reunion Special" Though probably not on the top of anyone's list of all-time great sitcoms, "One Day at a Time" did last for nine seasons and featured some popular actors who made their names elsewhere.

We're not out of 'Woods' yet When I contracted it, I cannot say, but it seems that sometime in the past year I came down with a serious case of TB. That's Tigerburculosis. As the girl in "Clueless" would say, I am like soooo sick of Tiger Woods it makes me want to hurl. It wasn't always this way. I actually enjoyed watching him up until about the British Open this year. It was after that, I think, that the media went wild, force-feeding us Tiger for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I was impressed with Steve Williams when he caddied for Tiger Woods. He went about his business doing exactly what he was supposed to do. Carry the bag, hand the golfer his club of choice, make a suggestion if asked, help line up a putt when asked, clean the ball and clubs - all simple tasks at hand for a caddie. And Williams was paid handsomely by his boss. After all, 10 percent of Woods' winnings was nothing to sneeze at, let alone the endorsements Williams himself was reaping in his native New Zealand.

My son came home from preschool the other day with the following assignment: The next time you come to class, bring with you a sign of spring. This prompted some discussion with me and his older brother, a first-grader who had some suggestions of his own. "You could take some flowers," the 7-year-old said. "Or birds, they're a sign of spring. " I wasn't quite sure how I would have managed to get a bird into his classroom if that suggestion had been considered a good one. Luckily, my 4-year-old had an idea of his own. "I could take a baseball," he said.
