The Golf Blog says: Tiger Woods is in good mood. He blogged his 2011 (click here), sounding ebullient. Here are some highlights:

Golf swing:
“It’s hard to believe 2011 is almost over, and it was sure nice to get a victory! I played a lot of golf late in the year, and it was extremely satisfying to close out the season with a win at my own event, the Chevron World Challenge. The great thing about the Australian Open and The Presidents Cup was that’s basically how I’ve been hitting the ball at home. It was nice to be able to take what I had been doing into a tournament situation and play well. Although I didn’t win the Australian Open, I finished third and hit a lot of quality golf shots.”

Holiday break:
“I going to take a couple weeks off and let my body recover a little bit. And then I will start getting ready for 2012. My first event will be in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. HSBC has been a big supporter of my Foundation, and it sounds like they’re going to have an excellent field. I’ve been to Dubai quite a few times, but never to Abu Dhabi. I’m looking forward to the experience.”

President’s Cup haters:
“When I got to Royal Melbourne for The Presidents Cup, it was quite interesting because the people who questioned me being on The Presidents Cup team were not the players; they wanted me on the team. So when we came together, it was pretty neat to receive a warm reception and see how excited they were to have me be there with them. It was great for Fred Couples, too. Fred stuck his neck out for me, and I was very grateful that he made me a captain’s pick. To be able to secure the clinching point for the U.S. and play as well as I did down there was special for both of us.”

Honorary captain at Fiesta Bowl:
“Before I begin the new season, I will attend the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 2 in Arizona to watch Stanford play Oklahoma State. Cardinal head coach David Shaw asked me to be an honorary team captain, and I happily accepted. For Coach Shaw to think highly enough of me to be involved in the game and be able to talk to his kids is very special. I’m very close to Stanford. They’ve done so much for me in my life. Everyone knows Coach Shaw and I had a class together. We go way back. It’s neat to be able to come back and help him any way that I can.”
