Can Tiger master his comeback?
Tiger Woods appeared a man at peace last night as he began his latest assault on the Masters. The 14-time Major winner has six top-10 finishes in the last seven years at Augusta but has failed to take the final-day honours since 2005.
"Life is better now," Woods, above, said. "It is a beautiful juggling act. That's the joy in life, being part of [my kids'] life and watching them grow. Taking them on the golf course every now and again, they will have a great time. That's what it's all about."
One endorsement of Woods' chances came from 18-time Major winner Jack Nicklaus, whose record Woods is aiming to overhaul. "I still expect him to break my record," Nicklaus said. "He's just too talented, driven, and focused. He's 37. He's got to win five majors - a pretty good career for most people." MORE

Familiarity gives Phil the edge
Phil Mickelson believes his good record at the Masters comes from his familiarity with the course. "I don't have to play perfectly to play well here," the three-time winner said. "I don't have to hit perfect shots. That's what's exciting about Augusta: the recovery shot." MORE
