PLAYERS: Tiger Woods
Amen Corner awaits. The azaleas are poised to bloom. With the Masters tournament being held this weekend and Tiger Woods coming off his first victory in more than two years, ''Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13'' couldn't arrive at a more opportune time. Video game golf has made some of the greatest strides of all sports titles over the years. The player customization is more detailed and the game physics truer to life than ever before. And ''Tiger 13'' (EA Sports, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, $59.99) lets you swing a club - or at least pretend to - from the comfort of your living room. The Xbox 360 version introduces Kinect-enabled swing tracking that allows the player to take a full cut with an imaginary club and see the results on the screen. The action is much like real golf: It can be sweet if things fall into line, but if you're off by a little, you're off by a lot. But the latest in golf game technology is not without its hiccups.

Column: 'I know how to play this golf course.'

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist Don't say he's back. Or that's he's not. Tiger Woods could play Augusta National in his sleep, in a daze, in a blizzard or with a ball and chain cuffed at his ankle and still get around in a respectable number of strokes. See where he is at close of light Sunday. Then we'll talk. A day before the opening...

Tiger's first-round swing is a Big Miss

Really, Tiger? Win at Bay Hill like it was 2000, have the world thinking a fifth green jacket's yours for the taking, then show up at the Masters and hit it like it's the bad old days of 2010? If we're to accept that the majestic ball-striking of two weeks ago represented a watershed in the Sean Foley era - or, a return to the best of the Butch Harmon era - then what...

1st Round at the Masters

The first round of the 2012 Masters turned out to be an up and down day for some of the big stars of the PGA Tour. The tour’s biggest star, Tiger Woods, had to deal with a lot of trouble Thursday as he posted an even round 72. If not for a couple of big saves with his putter, Woods would have been at least 2-over par. In his own words Woods said, ” [I] didn’t hit it very good...

Column: Not so easy to cheer for Tiger anymore

He could have used the 23 minutes to practice his putting, or check out the new slope on the 16th green. It might have been enough time for a quick lunch in the player's lounge, or a friendly chat with first round playing partner Sang-Moon Bae. But there were questions to be answered, stories to be told. Tiger Woods understands this as well as anyone, so he dutifully headed...
