SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – Tiger Woods said last week and again today that things are “starting to normalize” in his life and “that’s good.”

Given that he just shot 18 over at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational and finished 30 strokes out of first – anything but a normal thing for someone who has won seven times at Firestone South – I asked him today what he meant by things “normalizing.”

His answer was more open than most:

“I don’t have paparazzi camped out in front of the house, hotel, helicopters flying over the range,” he said. “That was happening every day. They were following my kids everywhere they went, taking photographs of everything they were doing. That was very tough. But that hasn’t been the case of late. To me, that’s a sign that it’s headed toward normalizing.”
