Truth & Rumors: Tiger Woods speaks at D.C. charter school

We all now know about Tiger's less-than-squeaky-clean personal life. And while he's about to lose his World No. 1 ranking and probably another chunk of endorsement money, you can't say he's all bad. According to The Washington Post, Tiger Woods was in Washington, D.C., on Friday for the opening of the new Tiger Woods Learning Center at the Cesar Chavez Public Charter School's Capitol Hill location. Tiger gave a 30-minute presentation at the event and answered questions from several ninth-grade students. 

"It's a perfect fit," Woods said. "If we can do this correctly, like we did in L.A., I think it'll be more impactful here than it is in L.A. Look at the people who come here. If they visit what we do, and we can offer it to their country -- not just here domestically, but internationally as well -- I think it'd be a great vehicle for us to expand and help more kids around the world."

The Capitol Hill campus is the second location for Woods' foundation in D.C. and will focus on communications and video production. 

PLAYERS ON THE BUBBLE 

If you need a reason to pay attention to the Fall Series, or wonder why players continue to play at this time of the year, the answer is simple: money. Yup, it's the time of the year when struggling rookies, out-of-sorts veterans and everyone in between start worrying about their jobs. There's always an interesting mix of guys who might lose their Tour card as the year winds down, and 2010 isn't any different. Check out some big names who might be looking at Q-School next year if they don't finish in the top 125 on the money list: 

David Duval: Currently 109th. It's still hard to believe the former World's No. 1 player has fallen so far. Did you know he finished second at the Masters twice? 

Robert Garrigus: Currently 119th. If he hadn't blown it at the St. Jude's he wouldn't have to worry now. 

Aaron Baddeley: Currently 121st. The whole stack-and-tilt thing was a mistake. 

Woody Austin: Currently 124th. Missing 12 cuts doesn't help. 

Mike Weir: Currently 142nd. Remember when he used to be good? 

Rocco Mediate: Currently 182nd. Might be time to get a job in the booth. Full-time. 

John Daly: Currently 195th. The lap band needs to go. 

Todd Hamilton: Currently 213th. He's still got his Claret Jug replica to ease the pain.
