AUGUSTA - Celebrating it's 75th anniversary in 2009, the Masters, according to the game's best players, has become the world's most prestigious golf tournament.
It's never a bad idea to pat yourself on the back, and I must say, this week I'm more than well-deserving. Quite. Yes. Indeed.
AUGUSTA – The rock star of golf has arrived. At approximately 3 p.m., local children chased his golf cart through the parking lot, and the obscure sound of velcro opening to unleash hoards of personal cameras engulfed an otherwise peaceful early Monday afternoon of Masters week at the Augusta National Golf Club.
Never, in my 10 years of filling out a bracket, have I had a year as absolutely pathetic as this one. I'm done, finished, caput – not a single team left in the Final Four. I went o-fer.
KISSIMMEE, Fla. - Kenshin Kawakami relished the opportunity to match up against fellow countryman Daisuke Matsuzaka.
ORLANDO, Fla. - Tiger Woods was down to his last shot at Bay Hill, tied for the lead as he measured a 15-foot birdie putt. That's when he heard a lone voice among thousands of people packed into the grandstand behind the 18th green.

This week, we're going to start with an apology. Last week, I gave a quick review of the 2008-2009 basketball season for all our area teams. Outside of the Statesboro boys team, I guessed most squads were disappointed with the way things ended…wrong.
The Southern Conference basketball tournament starts this weekend in Chattanooga, Tenn. Both Georgia Southern teams head up the interstate without much fanfare or expectation, leaving behind regular seasons that were disappointing.
In the midst of Georgia Southern's three-game sweep of Presbyterian, a falling baseball creates a close call for several spectators.
Man, what a week. I stood at Metter High School this past week, leaning against the wall behind the baseline watching the end of the Emanuel County Institute-Savannah Country Day girls' game - an appetizer before Portal took on Calvary Day in the Region 3-A tournament. It dawned on me that, "Yes, I do love basketball."
This is what it all comes down to: tournament time. All the hard work, all the long nights, the long grind of the regular season and the whole year comes down to "win or go home".
ATHENS - Nick Chubb and Georgia took care of Charleston Southern early, looking to carry the momentum into next week's state rivalry game against Georgia Tech.
