Tiger Woods isn't in the field this week at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. And it isn't because last year he was embarrassed by eventual champion Phil Mickelson in a final-round showdown. The reasons for Woods' absence are many -- he usually plays only once in California to start his season, and this year it was Torrey Pines, where he won -- but what doesn't help the tournament is that it's regarded as the slowest on the PGA Tour's calendar. Of course, much of the reason for that is because the professionals play with an amateur partner -- men whose golf balls don't seem to care that they're rich or famous -- and the weather's not usually cooperative. But, either way, six-hour rounds of golf -- not uncommon at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am -- are no fun for anybody, even with Bill Murray clowning around to kill time.

The buzz in golf is not all good

What should be happy times for golf is being overshadowed by off-course controversy. Tiger Woods won for the 75th time on the PGA Tour and set a record with his eighth win at Torrey Pines. It was a command performance, the kind that made people think more about where he is going than where he went. The next week, Phil Mickelson had a chance at 59 until his 25-foot birdie putt on...

WAGs Wednesday: Tiger Woods’ Girlfriend, Skiier Lindsey Vonn

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn have reportedly been dating since November.  Poor Lindsay was just involved in a serious skiing accident where she tore ligaments in her knee when she fell in the super-G of the Alpine world championships (whatever that is).  Here’s hoping Lindsey Vonn makes a speedy recovery.  In the meantime, check out Tiger’s new dimepiece in this week’s edition...

Westwood reminded of where it all started

Lee Westwood still doesn't know why his father took him to the golf course. He played just about every other sport in England when he was 12, such as football, cricket and rugby. He used to go fishing with his father, but the fish weren't biting, mainly because Westwood kept throwing stones into the water. So off they went to a golf course called Kilton Forest, neither of...
