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

Bayern complete stroll into semi

Bayern Munich also made it to the last four last night, easing to a 2-0 win at Juventus to complete a 4-0 aggregate victory. The 2012 finalists went ahead through Mario Mandzukic halfway through the second half, with Claudio Pizarro cementing the win in injury time. MORE

Wilson departs faltering Blades

Sheffield United last night confirmed the departure of manager Danny Wilson with just five matches of the season left. The League One side sit fifth in the table, but have won only once in their last six matches. Wilson departs after just under two years at Bramall Lane.

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

Spurs seek to make last four of Europa
