ATLANTA -- It has taken 33 weeks of regular tournaments and three more weeks of playoffs to reach today's grand finale of the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup, but in reality, it's over. And the winner? Who else but Tiger Woods? Actually, even after Woods torched East Lake Country Club once again Saturday, there's still a slight mathematical chance that Woods won't win the $10-million FedEx Cup bonus at the $7-million Tour Championship.

Analyzing the odds for upcoming games and events. It is hardly startling news that Tiger Woods is the favorite to win the 136th British Open, which begins Thursday at Carnoustie in Scotland. The online betting site bodog.com has defending champion Woods a 3-1 choice to win the Open for a fourth time, obviously believing he will better his performance from the last time the tournament was played at Carnoustie. In 1999, Woods finished in a tie for seventh.

Five weeks ago K.J. Choi received a trophy from Jack Nicklaus. On Sunday, he got one from Tiger Woods. The biggest name in South Korean golf was again the prized guest at a golf party thrown by a U.S. star, as he punctuated an adventurous back nine with a great bunker shot on his way to a three-shot victory over Steve Stricker at the AT&T National.

Some time ago, after Tiger Woods finished second in a tournament, someone consoled him and said he had played well anyway. Woods wasn't buying it. "Know what second place is?" Woods said. "First loser." Even as he stood on the 18th green at Oakmont Country Club on Sunday to take part in a U.S. Open trophy celebration for somebody else, runner-up Woods actually smiled, spoke warmly about new champion Angel Cabrera and acted as if he felt all right about losing by one shot.

The voice cut suddenly and deeply into the thick late afternoon air, momentarily puncturing the buzz of helicopters and clicking of cameras, a human cry of pain. "Dammit, Tiger. Dammit, Tiger." The voice belonged to someone angrily yelling and gesturing at Tiger Woods, but it was not a heckler, and it was not his caddie. It was Tiger Woods. There was sweat trickling down his face. There were veins popping in his neck.

Just after 7 o'clock Friday night, Tiger Woods climbed into a cart, rode through a crowded parking lot and pulled up at the driving range at Oakmont Country Club. He met his coach and his caddie, and they set up shop at the far end of the range. Woods went straight to work, again, even though he had not yet shaken off the dust and the grime and the sweat from a 5 1/2 -hour grind of the U.S. Open. Woods grabbed a club and started to practice his backswing as Hank Haney offered words of advice.

It's golf's most compelling story line, Tiger Woods vs. Phil Mickelson. No. 1 vs. No. 2. Righty vs. Lefty. Hank Haney vs. Butch Harmon. With Mickelson's impressive victory Sunday at the Players, with the U.S. Open coming up and beyond that a long, hot summer, the swings of Woods and Mickelson and the influence of their two swing coaches have become the major talking points in professional golf. But what exactly are Woods-Haney and Mickelson-Harmon trying to accomplish? Here's a brief rundown.

Not long after dark Sunday night, about the time new Masters champion Zach Johnson was sitting down to dinner with the high-ranking members of Augusta National Golf Club, Tiger Woods had already hopped on his jet and flown home to Florida. He was probably trying to digest how he'd spent his week in Augusta and couldn't have been happy with the answers. Tiger-watchers will devote much of their post-Masters downloading to figuring out how long a tie for second place will linger.
