AUGUSTA - Framed in history on the same wall as Arnie, Jack, Couples and Phil, there stood Tiger Woods, Augusta's newest legend slipping into his green jacket with the help of Nick Faldo after blasting the competition at the '97 Masters. Wearing his blazingly red Sunday duds, 'that' Tiger sported a thin face, a full head of hair, and an innocent toothy grin that was taking grasp of the golfing world.
AUGUSTA - While acknowledging he made some "incredibly poor decisions" in his personal life, Tiger Woods still thinks he can win the Masters - even coming back from a five-month layoff.
If Tiger Woods slips on his effectively grass-stained jacket for a fifth time next Sunday, what happens next? Do we cheer wildly in utter jubilation, waving patriotic flags as Argentineans did when Angel Cabrera captured the 2009 Masters title? Or do we politely applaud with hesitation, keeping the game's now publicly-flawed greatest player at the emotional distance he's always preferred from us?
