Golfing ace Tiger Woods believes he has come to terms with the death of his father EARL WOODS - only 11 weeks after the patriarch died. The 30-year-old golfer was devastated when the 74-year-old lost his eight year battle with prostate cancer on 3 May (06). Woods says, "I've come to terms with it, there's no doubt about that. "He's not here anymore. It's not like I can pick up the phone and call him and say, 'Pop, what do you think about my putting stroke?' Those days aren't here anymore. "But there's not a day that I go through without thinking about my dad. I love him dearly."
