Some adjustments are in order for the world's No. 1 player.
''I've never seen snow fall in my life,'' said Woods, who grew up in California and now lives most of the year in Florida.
The only time he has seen snow was a few years ago when he and Mark O'Meara went fishing in the spring near Park City, Utah. There was still snow on the ground, even though Woods said it was in the 60s that day.
One other tiny problem is that the warmest clothing Woods owns is a leather jacket.
Woods, who finished second in his Target World Challenge, will not play in another tournament until the season-opening Mercedes Championships in Hawaii, which starts Jan. 9 at Kapalua.
''I may not touch a club until after Christmas,'' he said.
Until then, the only sports equipment he touches might be ski poles.
