The Week April 3-9


The word Slam echoed in the pines, but the Masters was won, as it
often is, by the man who seemed the most serene over 72 holes.
Not that anyone was fooled. There is an almost combustible desire
to make history in Tiger Woods. You could see it, at the end, in
that one exultant gesture, his arm shooting skyward like an
exclamation point. "If this isn't Grand," his expression shouted,
"what is?"
