Bragg in North Carolina, beginning April 12, the day after the Masters. Woods' father, Earl, ultimately a Green Beret in Vietnam, went through basic training there. No matter how rigorous the training might be, Woods is ready, according to Mark Steinberg, Woods' agent at IMG. "Whatever they do, he's going to do," Steinberg said Tuesday.
