Masters Amateur Jack Newman doesn't want to anger Tom Izzo

Tom Izzo Jack Newman earned his way into this week's field at Augusta National by winning the 2008 U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship. But it didn't take long for the junior at Michigan State to feel like the Spartan's chances of winning the Monday night's National Championship basketball game against North Carolina were slipping away. "About five minutes, maybe," he said.Although he knows Goran Suton, the team's 6-foot 10-inch center, and lives near guards Kalin Lucas and Derrell Summers, he clearly doesn't want to cross the team's fiercely intense coach, Tom Izzo (right).When asked what he thought Izzo would be like on the golf course he said with a laugh, "You know, I don't really know him, so I don't want to comment. I don't want to say the wrong thing."In keeping with Masters, Newman is staying in the Crow's Nest above the clubhouse with the other Masters amateurs. He finished the nine-hole Par 3 Contest at 3 under par, just two shots behind Tim Clark.(Photo by John Biever/SI)
