Losing a parent, no matter how old you are, is hard. I have yet to experience that kind of grief, but I know that it will be very difficult to handle.
That being said, I always thought that the coverage surrounding Tiger Woods when his father passed away was a bit...cloying. The Post's Phil Mushnick agrees.
Now that we know a bit more about how Tiger liked to spend his free time, we might have a better idea of what he might have been doing during his time off to grieve.
