Five Burning Questions about the 2006 Masters
5. What happened to Tiger Woods? Four bogeys in six holes? As he walked off 18, caddy Stevie Williams mimed like he was going to snap Tiger?s putter in half. Maybe not the worst idea?it just cost him the 2006 Masters.
4. Did Jose Maria Olazabal’s caddy not know that the cover-all he was wearing was supposed to cover his clothes, not his nakedness? We really didn?t need to see it unzipped to his waist, revealing all those mounds of chest hair. The ’70s are over, dude.
3. Did Nike mix up their product shipment and send Michelle Wie?s shirts to Tiger? Enough pink, we want the old Sunday-red Tiger back.
2. Where?s Martha Burk when we need her? I don?t want to hear about the World According to Alan or Jane anymore, or how ExxonMobil makes the world a better place. Let?s run back the 2003 ad-free Masters instead.
1. And the number-one burning question: What is up with Phil?s hair? Is he going for Johnny Damon’s old caveman look? It?s almost as disastrous as the 10 that Rocco Mediate posted on the par-3 12th! Yikes!

Agree on the commercials---they blew wax.
You want Tiger every year? We have it good enough. He'll be more primed than ever to win the Open at Winged Foot.
Hairy Spanish men kick ass. Jimenez has the Spafro, now Chema's caddie has the chestrug.
You make all your putts, Jen? Always hit the right key on the keyboard?
Apologetic: Tiger Woods has reacted quickly to criticism following comments he made to BBC2
Golfing superstar Tiger Woods has been forced to apologise for saying he putted like "a spaz'' during the final round at the US Masters tournament.
Woods, 29, who failed to retain his title after shooting 70 in the final round at Augusta, said on BBC2: "I putted atrociously today. Once I got on the greens I was a spaz.''
His comment prompted reproach from the Disability Rights Commission (DRC) and charity Scope, and Woods' spokesman Mark Steinberg later said: "Tiger meant nothing derogatory to any person or persons and apologises for any offence caused.''
Scope, formerly The Spastics Society, was lobbied by disabled people and groups to change its name, because the word had become offensive.
The charity's aim is equality for disabled people, and a spokesman said: "Tiger Woods has demonstrated, as George Bernard Shaw said, that 'England and America are two countries divided by a common language'.
"Although in the US the term 'spaz' may not be as offensive as it is in the UK, many disabled people here will have taken exception to likening his poor golf stroke to that of 'a spaz'.''
He said the charity was "confident'' Woods would be devastated to learn something he said could offend his fans - disabled or non-disabled.
The spokesman added: "But 'spaz' - as used in Woods's context - is suggesting that symptoms of spastic cerebral palsy are 'clumsy' or 'inept'.
"All Scope asks is that people - particularly in the public sphere - watch what they say, especially as their remarks are read and heard worldwide. Sporting celebrities have a unique and wide influence, often spanning international communities.''
I can't speak for Mon a-doo Ron Ron, but my impression was he was just poking fun.
I actually place some validity on your question #3. Doesn't U. of Iowa cover the visitors locker room with pink paint? - the carpeting, the walls, the urinals etc. The vistors psyche themselves out just by trying to cover it up.
I think Tiger did an Iowa to himself.
I do not want to see golfer A taking a bottle of water out of his golf bag and then golfer A watching golfer B make his putt.
I wanted to see what golfer B was doing, golf as it happens.
It's the camera man and directer who are making me less interested in watching golf.
