With the Masters due to start this week, British fans will be optimistic that a player from our shores can gatecrash the tournament in Augusta - something that hasn’t been done since Nick Faldo in 1996. In fact, there hasn’t even been a European winner in 12 years - a bit of glory is long overdue.

Lee Westwood must consider whether to ditch his new putter for The Masters after what he termed "an atrocious week on the greens". The world No 2 will take great hope from his performance tee to green at the Houston Open, but realises his chances of a first major will be doomed if he fails to rectify his short game.

Chris Wood narrowly missed out on a maiden professional victory after Open champion Louis Oosthuizen won a three-man play-off to clinch the Africa Open title in East London yesterday. Oosthuizen holed from 15 feet for birdie on the first extra hole, the par-four 18th, to clinch a third European Tour win. Wood and Spain's Manuel Quiros could manage only pars after the trio had finished regulation play tied on 18 under par.

Any hopes that Tiger Woods may have had of drawing a line in the sand under a year of personal and professional crises have been dashed by the news that his image is so tarnished that he will not feature on the cover of the latest instalment in his eponymous computer game.

The first thing to know about Colonel Bogey is that there was no Colonel Bogey. Not a real one, at any rate. In 1914, an ex-military man and keen golfer, apparently nicknamed Colonel Bogey (after the golfing term for a one-above-par round) was out on the golf course and whistled two notes – a descending minor third interval. This was overheard by a Lieutenant Frederick Joseph Ricketts, director of music for the Royal Marines at Plymouth, and inspired him to compose the now-famous tune, "The Colonel Bogey March".

With the first line of his victory speech Louis Oosthuizen wished a happy 92nd birthday to Nelson Mandela and afterwards he described how thoughts of South Africa's former president inspired him to win the Open by the second largest margin in 97 years. That and a phone call from Gary Player.

The title refers to the code word Team Tiger use when their boss is in a foul mood, and the world's No 1 golfer had plenty to be upset about in 2009. Lusetich set out to build up a picture of Woods by tracking him through every Tour event he played in last year, then had to rejig his material after Woods's private life went into meltdown.
