What one thing is Tiger Woods dealing with that he&rsquo;s never had to deal with before but must be gnawing at him like a rottweiler on a rawhide?</P>It&rsquo;s not the loss of public favor.&#160; It&rsquo;s not the breakup of his marriage, though I&rsquo;m sure that&rsquo;s killing him as well.&#160; It&rsquo;s not missing the cut in one tournament and withdrawing from another. </P>&#160;It&rsquo;s one simple, but powerful thing.&#160; Something that&rsquo;s difficult for all of us, particularly those who have been successful at world-class levels, to deal with.</P>Failure.</P>And, more specifically, failure at the one thing in his life that has been a constant since Tiger&rsquo;s dad put a club in his hand.&#160; When his dad was sick in 2005, Tiger turned to golf and won his 4th Masters.</P>With his life in disarray, Tiger has turned to golf and his game and body have failed him.</P>Some accept failure and lower their goals and expectations.&#160; I don&rsquo;t expect that from Tiger.&#160; </P>&#160; </P><BR/>
