It was fun to see Tiger Woods atop a leader board after an 11-month drought (Back to the Future, Jan. 31). Winning one tournament in which he hit many poor shots, however, does not show me that Tiger is poised to regain his dominant position. The only thing Tiger has truly proved this year is that he has great taste in women.

Rick Reilly's column on Sean O'Hair, the young golfer whose father struck and bullied him, is very disturbing and truly sad (LIFE OF REILLY, Jan. 31). Not only did it make me grateful for my own parents, but it also made me realize what a fine job Earl and Tida Woods did in raising a well-rounded, well-adjusted child prodigy.

Dribbling Daughters (Jan. 31) claims to list the most prominent daughters of pro athletes playing college basketball. You've left out, however, Jenyce Woodruff of American University. The senior forward is third in the Patriot League in rebounds and near the top in blocks and free throw percentage. She is the daughter of former Pittsburgh Steeler Dwayne Woodruff, who was the team MVP in 1982 and was part of the Super Bowl XIV--winning squad.
