Back To Normal At The Masters

It's Tuesday morning at the Masters and it already feels different.

Tiger's on the course, playing a practice round with Mark O'Meara and much of the edge is gone. We saw Tiger yesterday, he answered questions, he defused the tension. Today feels closer to normal.

Phil's here after flying from Houston Sunday back home to San Diego for a night with Amy and the family before coming to Augusta. Though he hasn't said much about it, you get the sense Phil is wrestling with Amy's struggles related to her treatment for breast cancer.

Defending champion Angel Cabrera teed off early today, no doubt to have time to prepare for hosting the champion's dinner tonight. Cabrera will serve an Argentinian barbecue to his green-jacketed guests.

The pairings will be released later this morning and we can all see who drew the two slots in Tiger's group. Judging from what most of the players are saying, it sounds like most of them would like to play with him.

It feels like the Masters today.

They always want to play with Tiger. Phil sure says it alot how he does. Of course, Phil only has 3 majors in 20 years of pro golf and not one in 5 years. Last I checked, Tiger still has 14 majors or more than the top 5 combined. His peers still know this and will never forget it. He's Joe Montana down 4 and the ball with 3 mintues left and 80 yards away. May or may not score, but the opponent is not settled.
