The Golf Channel’s interview with Tiger Woods on Wednesday went over some well-charted territory, but TGC’s Steve Sands attempted to pepper Woods with some unusual questions, including this exchange:

Question: 18 holes to play at Augusta. You right now or Jack in his prime? You’re tied after 54 holes
Tiger: Me. Did I say that too fast? [smiling]
Question: Why?
Tiger: I like my chances.
Rory to PGA Tour: It’s not you, it’s your playoffs very active Twitter account McIlroy’s press conference Wednesday

Greg Norman thrills fans at Day 1 of Aussie Open but falters at end Kirsten Kutner Martin Blake of The Sydney Morning Herald
Norman was headed for a good day in the best scoring conditions, but then allowed it to slip on the back nine with three consecutive three-putts. His bete noir was at the eighth hole, his 17th, a par-five. A newspaper photographer disturbed him in the backswing and he went sideways into deep grass. The photographer had stumbled and accidentally set off his motor drive, and was apologetic, but this scarcely helped Norman. He had already driven into a pond down the right; he double-bogeyed a hole that offered up a potential birdie.
Still, by the time he reached his last hole, the par-three ninth, the crowd was healthy and still supportive. Tournament director Tony Roosenburg was at the green, waiting and hoping, for organizers need Norman around this weekend. Norman signed for a two-over par 74 with a dreadful 34 putts, and headed off for lunch in the clubhouse with his new in-laws; he has some work to do today.
