    THE golfing world will be praying the injuries Tiger Woods suffered in a car wreck are not life-threatening – but it is hard to believe they will not spell the end of his glittering career. With Woods, 45, undergoing surgery for “multiple leg injuries”, you have to wonder how much more his battered body can make. 14Tiger Woods' car was left shattered on the side of the road following the smashCredit: BackGrid 14Tiger Woods, 45, is undergoing surgery for 'multiple leg injuries'Credit: AP:Associated Press He underwent a fifth operation of his fused back just last month, and admitted on Sunday he had no idea whether he would be fit to challenge for a sixth Masters title in April.

I don’t really like to get into that stuff. I mean, defending champion, I’m sure I’ll be in a decent group on Thursday and Friday, so maybe a little bit more pressure there.” Smith, however, is sporting a different look.

    By PAUL NEWBERRY, AP Sports Writer AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Tiger Woods got off to a brilliant start at the Masters. The defending champion couldn't keep it going. That pursuit of a sixth green jacket will likely have to wait until April.. Woods made a birdie on his 10th hole of the opening round to reach 4-under par. He played the next 44 holes in just 1 under, leaving him 11 shots off the lead heading to the final round. After 19 months as the Masters champ, Woods will apparently be putting the green jacket on another player Sunday. “I was focused on trying to get myself in contention going into tomorrow," Woods said. “We’ll see how emotional it’ll be after tomorrow’s round.” Woods needed a big move in the third round but was stuck in neutral. He didn’t make a birdie until the 12th hole, and that was after...

But once he got going, the man barely missed a beat. Here are some thoughts and observations from the opening round, as Woods made it clear to the field that he has no plans to relinquish the green jacket anytime soon: • It was a bogey-free 68 for Tiger in the opening round, out in 33 and home in 35.

    Tiger Woods' near-ace on the 16th hole at Augusta National looked awfully familiar — probably because he almost hit a hole-in-one there last year. AP Photo/Matt Slocum Tiger Woods nearly hit a hole-in-one during his opening round at the 2020 Masters as he looks to defend his title. Woods' drive dropped onto the green on the 16th hole and made its way back towards the pin before rolling to a stop mere feet from the cup, where he was easily able to tap it in for a birdie. During his epic run to his fifth Masters victory last year, Woods almost aced the same Par 3 during the final round before securing yet another green jacket.

    NICK FALDO has vowed to run around Augusta National naked if Bryson DeChambeau manages to drive the green at the 445 yard opening hole.  Jack Nicklaus predicted DeChambeau could achieve that feat after hearing he had managed to carry a drive 403 yards through the air while warming up for the Masters. 5Nick Faldo could soon be running round Augusta National nakedCredit: Getty 5He promised to do that if if Bryson DeChambeau manages to drive the green at the 445 yard opening holeCredit: Getty 5 With a cold damp Augusta not offering much run on the ball, Faldo, 63, dismissed that possibility. He said: “Bryson will not be driving the first at 445. If he does, I will leap out of my TV tower and run around start naked round Augusta National.” But with the weather forecast suggesting the course could dry out by the weekend – and DeChambeau flying...
    Tiger Woods’ competition at the Masters this year is too fierce for the defending champion to “flip a switch” and return to contention, according to Nick Faldo. Woods ended an 11-year wait for his 15th major as he triumphed at Augusta last April. The 44-year-old subsequently won the ZOZO Championship in October 2019 but has since struggled for form. MASTERS 2020: Odds, expert picks and more Battling back problems, Woods finished in a tie for 37th at this year’s PGA Championship and missed the cut at the 2020 U.S. Open. Faldo, a three-time Masters champion, does not expect last year’s Augusta winner to suddenly rediscover his best form this week. “Unfortunately, things are just more difficult for Tiger,” he said. “He’s a little bit older and the back hasn’t been good. “His back rules his everything — golf and life, probably. It rules his practice — that’s very important. He cannot stand...
    Rising Canadian tennis star Felix Auger-Aliassime has heaped praise on his Polish doubles partner Hubert Hurkacz after winning his first ATP title with him. Speaking courtside after clinching the doubles crown at Rolex Paris Masters on Sunday, Auger-Aliassime called the Pole his “best partner”. The pair struck gold in only their second tournament as doubles partners, beating World No.2 Bruno Soares of Brazil and Mate Pavic of Croatia 6-7(3), 7-6(7), 10-8.

    Rafael Nadal will have to continue to wait for his first major title at the deep end of the season. Nadal’s woes in the Rolex Paris Masters and on indoor hard-courts continued with a 6-4, 7-5 loss to big-striking Alexander Zverev in the Rolex Paris Masters 2020 semi-finals. Nadal himself assessed why he is yet to win a title on the Parisian hard-courts. While it is known that the conditions are his least favored, Nadal also does not play any indoor hard-court events until Paris-Bercy. “Why I never won here in Paris? The surface is difficult. Generally, it’s my first tournament indoor,” Nadal said after his loss on Saturday.

    PARIS (AP) — Top-seeded Rafael Nadal stayed on course for an elusive first title at the Paris Masters after beating Jordan Thompson 6-1, 7-6 (3) on Thursday to reach the quarterfinals. Nadal has won 86 career titles, including 35 in Masters events, but lost his only final at the Bercy Indoor Arena in Paris 13 years ago. Thompson found his range in the second set, hitting a couple of big winners down the line and forcing a set point with Nadal serving at 6-5. After a decent second serve, Nadal saved it after a long rally. Thompson threw his racket onto the ground in frustration after losing the next point and Nadal’s sharp backhand volley at the net took it into a tiebreaker. The unseeded Australian saved one match point with his third ace of the tiebreaker, but on the next opportunity Nadal pushed his opponent to the back...
    Daniil Medvedev enters the Rolex Paris Masters 2020 on the back of a mixed bag of results. He has not played to his potential so far over the past few weeks but still feels he has a good chance this week in Paris. At the same time, he picked Rafael Nadal and Andrey Rublev as his favorites to win the ATP Masters 1000 title. Medvedev’s reasons for picking both those players as the top-2 favorites are quite different. Medvedev believes that every time Nadal, Roger Federer, or Novak Djokovic end up playing a tournament, they become favorites. Medvedev, thus, named Nadal as his top pick for the title. “I think that when a member of the big 3 is present, he is favorite. Rafa is still favorite,” Medvedev said, ahead of his first match in Paris. Tennis – French Open – Roland Garros, Par is, France – Spain’s Rafael Nadal...
    PARIS (AP) — Fifteen-seeded Borna Coric advanced to the second round of the Paris Masters by beating qualifier Marton Fucsovics 7-6 (5), 6-1 on Monday. The Croatian won 35 of his 48 first-service points at the indoor tournament and will next face Jordan Thompson of Australia. “It was not an easy match and every time we have played it’s been very tough,” Coric said. “I played one bad game at 2-1 in the first set, when I missed two first serves, but pretty much the rest of the time I was serving huge.” Coric recently reached the final at the St. Petersburg Open for the second year in a row. Thompson defeated qualifier Federico Delbonis of Argentina 6-2, 6-3. Also, Spanish veteran Feliciano Lopez progressed to the second round with a 7-6 (11), 6-1 win over Filip Krajinovic of Serbia and will be up against Rafael Nadal in his next...
