Following Tiger Woods' early September statement regarding a return to golf, those around the game spoke of the 14-time major winner in present and future tones. Are the reports of Tiger flushing it in practice true? Can his body withstand the rigors of competitive golf? Can he be a formidable player again? Alas, that dialogue was quickly extinguished on Monday, as Woods reneged on his commitment to the Safeway Open. As his sabbatical continues -- painting a horizon without a dawn -- the narrative has shifted to the 40 year old's past.
