PLAYERS: Tiger Woods
Whether he truly believes it or not, Tiger Woods doesn't think he is out of it at Augusta National. The even-par 72 on Saturday, the 3-over total and increasing deficit might say otherwise. "Obviously I need help from the guys this afternoon," said Woods, who needed 31 putts on Saturday. "Regardless of what they do, I need to play a great round of golf tomorrow, and hopefully I can do that." In a round that unraveled not quite to the extent of Friday's 3-over 75 debacle, Woods picked up early birdies at Nos. 3 and 4, posted bogeys at Nos. 6 and 9 and then made nine straight pars on the back nine. The normal Tiger charge simply wasn't there. "I was so close to putting it together today," Woods sayd. " I unfortunately did not play the par 5s very well today. I'm telling you it was so close to being a really good round of golf. I just didn't take care of the opportunities when I had them." The par 5s have been uncharacter...

Column: Woods apologizes but still struggles

Tiger Woods made a conditional apology for his petulant display in the second round of the Masters and behaved better on Saturday, but it was game rather than his demeanour that was of most concern. The peace of mind Woods used to know every time he stepped on a golf course is gone, if not for good, then certainly for the rest of this Masters. He will never get that back, at least...

Woods club-kicking does not go unnoticed

Tiger Woods is subject to discipline by the PGA Tour for kicking his golf club after a poor shot at the Masters. Whether he is fined is not likely to be known. The PGA Tour does not comment on discipline. Woods, after a bad miss with a 4-iron into the 15th hole on Friday, hit a poor tee shot with a 9-iron on the par-3 16th. He let the club fall from his hands, then turned and kicked...

Freddie steady while Tiger comes undone

Little did Joe LaCava know he was turning his back on a chance to make Masters history by going to work for Tiger Woods. "I miss Joe, sure," Freddie Couples of his old caddie on Friday. "It's very weird after 21, 22 years. It's a long time to have him on the bag." Joey, it's not too late. LaCava should put in a call to his old friend, who on the...

Aussie tourneys pass on Tiger's fee

Australia's top tournaments are facing a summer of golf without Tiger Woods, with no takers for his $2 million appearance fee. Woods had a huge influence on Aussie galleries the past three years with visits Down Under, but any further pitches to the former world No.1 are on hold for now. Former Victorian premier, John Brumby, said Woods' visit to the Masters in Melbourne...

Did Tiger Woods ‘Jump The Shark’ This Weekend?

The answer, of course, is no. He didn’t. Sure, Tiger Woods was both putrid and petulant this weekend – putrid in swinging the club, petulant in kicking it – and was a non-factor from late Friday on. But all it will take is for the next Major to roll around for Woods to dominate the golf discourse again. Should he win said Major, or any one thereafter, his pursuit of Jack...

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...

After a decent first round, though, Woods has faded back to three above par, good...

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...
