The season`s first major kicks off at Augusta National this week and Angel
Cabrera returns to defend his title. Cabrera needed a playoff last year to
best Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell for his first Masters title and second
major championship victory. The Argentine also captured the 2007 U.S. Open.
The big story this week though is the return of Tiger Woods, who hasn`t
played anywhere since November. The four-time Masters champion was last seen
on a course when he won the JBWere Masters on November 15th. Michael Sim and
two-time Masters champion Jose Maria Olazabal have withdrawn from the
tournament. The PGA Tour retuns to action next week in Hilton Head with the
Verizon Heritage, where Brian Gay earned his second PGA Tour title last year.
