TOM WEISKOPF: "Tiger is a great player but he has not lost a
loved one, has not gone through a business failure and has not
had a bad run-in with the press. There is so much that he will

HOT PUTTERS: Odyssey's on the rise, but the winner of 40 of the
last 72 men's majors has used a Ping.

MILLER: Wonder what he was feeling after he shot 81 against Jack

LAURA DAVIES: She became the first woman to play in the Fred
Couples Invitational, shooting 73-82 to finish last in the
22-player field.
