Spend 10 minutes at a Champions Tour event and you can learn more about Tiger Woods than you would during 10 weeks on the PGA Tour. That was the case yesterday at the senior circuit's ACE Group Classic in Naples, Fla., where Tiger whisperers John Cook and Mark O'Meara freely waxed about all things Woods. Greg Hardwig of the Naples News has the scoop, beginning with Cook's firsthand take on Tiger's swing changes:

"As of Monday [at Isleworth], it clicked, it finally clicked to him on what exactly, where the face of the club needs to be at certain points, which really sounded to me like kind of old school Butch, but with a better face angle on his backswing, which means, wow, that's something really good. He was really feeling something special on Tuesday, and it was really-just to stop and watch and see the excitement he had on his face, and the flight of the golf ball as to what he was explaining to me what was going on in San Diego and Dubai. He said this is???it's way better and way different. And this only happened on Monday, and Tuesday, he was just feeling it even more."

When Hank Haney, Tiger's former swing coach, heard this, he tweeted: "John Cook said it all clicked for Tiger on Monday with his swing. I remember when that happened with me, he should win next week."

Such a different world he lives in- i get excitement on my face everytime the ball stays on the fairway.Never mind how the club connected with the ball.Fairway found and beer cart spotted-those are happy course moments.

Nothing like a bunch of mother hens getting together to gossip. Perhaps they should consider quilting some golf towels!
