With golf course design and other lucrative opportunities beckoning, Tiger Woods and
Annika Sorenstam are seemingly scaling back their Tour schedules. Are they setting
the trend for professional golf\'s future?

Has professional golf evolved to the point where golfers\' ultimate objective is to
put themselves in a position where they don\'t have to golf?

The question is raised by observing recent developments at opposite ends of the pro

At one end is Luke Swilor, who recently earned his Canadian Tour card. A blogger as
well as a budding pro, Swilor gives his readers an inside view of what it\'s like to
be a struggling young golfer - and it\'s not easy.

Swilor travels around North America playing US Pro Golf Tour and Canadian Tour
events. His life is an endless string of qualifying, grinding and trying to get his
game to a level where he can compete week in and week out on the PGA Tour. Reading
his blog, you can tell he does it for the love of the game.

At the other end are Tiger Woods and Annika Sorenstam. They haven\'t just reached the
pinnacle of golf, they have leaped over it. In apparent recognition of the
achievement they seem less and less inclined to actually golf much anymore.

Tiger is clearly focusing on the events that matter to him personally, playing just
15 PGA Tour tournaments last season but making time for silly-season stuff in the
winter and the Tavistock Cup in spring.

Just 30, Woods has long complained about the grueling Tour schedule. Now, with a kid
on the way and a multi-multi-million-dollar course-design deal in Dubai in his
pocket, he has made no bones about playing only where, when and as often as he feels
like it.

At 36, Sorenstam took a little longer to come down with touring ennui, but she seems
poised to go the Tiger route.
