Tiger Woods, in eyes of competitor, "has lost the desire to play"

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- Colin Swatton, the longtime instructor and caddie for Jason Day, made a point this week to watch Tiger Woods hit balls on the practice range prior to the Open Championship. He was shaking his head at what he saw.

Bad, huh?

"I swear, he never missed a shot," Swatton said. "I watched him for an hour the first time, and he hit it great. He's still a top-10 iron player in the world."
