Augusta National Golf Club Chairman Billy Payne dodged 10 questions from reporters over why the exclusive club — which hosts the Masters golf tournament this week — continues to exclude women.

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...
As Tiger Woods prepares to tee off at the Masters on Thursday, an ESPN report said his half-brother is suffering from multiple sclerosis and is in danger of losing his house, but has not been able to reach the superstar golfer.

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...

The PGA Tour said O'Meara was forced out Thursday when he pulled a muscle. He had played a practice round with good friend Tiger Woods the day before, and then took part in the Par 3 contest.

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...
