Masters chairman announces creation of Augusta National Women's Amateur Championship

One phrase was said to be "dilly, dilly", which was made famous by a U.S. beer commercial and became a common cheer at golf events. How will Dustin Johnson fair after having to WD due to injury last season?

If only everyone would quit reminding him. "I'm actually very happy that I'm getting a lot of attention".

The dark times, apparently are over and recently he described himself as a "walking miracle", a term that he was asked to expand upon.

Over the last few tournaments, Tiger Woods appearances at the Masters Golf Tournament have been more like a journeyman pro than a 14-time major champion.

The 28-year-old is bidding for a green jacket to complete the career grand slam, the set of all four of golf's major titles.

Having made another comeback from injury at the back end of a year ago, Woods has now finished second and fifth respectively at the Valspar Championship and the Arnold Palmer International. He said he fell down the stairs of his rental home because he was wearing socks on a hardwood floor. It was raining. His son was headed back from day care, so he ran downstairs in his rental home to move the vehicle. Woods attributed it to a bad combination of prescription drugs and sought treatment.

Added Arjun Atwal, the first Indian victor on the PGA Tour: "It's awesome to see what he's doing at the age of 21".

"I'm so excited for this week", said Spieth, the reigning British Open champion. "Hopefully, I can tee it up on Thursday".

"But, look, it's not that dilly dilly, fine with me".

The ten-year exemption for winning The Masters has since been changed to a five-year exemption.

But he hasn't won since the first tournament of the year, an eight-shot victory at Kapalua. It will be made up of an all-American trio: Austin Cook, Ted Potter Jr. and Wesley Bryan. He has been away from golf for much of the last few years because of his four back surgeries.

He's not anxious about that, either, because Johnson doesn't worry about much.

"I think that nobody respects and appreciates what he's done for the game more because nobody's benefited from what he's done for the game of golf more than I have", Mickelson said of Woods. We have gone through it a long time, and the better part of 20 years our friendship has certainly gotten a lot better. "If he can get off to a good start, he could be in contention Sunday", Jester added.

The Spaniard won a play-off over Britain's Justin Rose after an epic back-nine battle last April, taking an emotional victory on what would have been the 60th birthday of his late idol Seve Ballesteros. "I like my chances". The American was riding high heading into the US Masters a year ago.

He won a fabled green jacket and $486,000.

A mingling mist of then and now, as golf's hottest young players coincide with the twin resurgence of aging past champions Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson at the Masters.

As for Woods, the 42-year-old continues to look agile and spry in preparation.

"I think on my good day I've got a good chance of beating him".

Arnold Palmer was 28 when he captured his first green jacket. "We know we're going to have to play well in order to win, and it's going to be quite a challenge". Justin Thomas won the Honda Classic with two clutch shots - a wedge and a 5-wood. There was nothing he could do about it.

"But most importantly, I want to stay here", he said. "But some things never change and I can't keep it up with him". In the first 12 weeks, 11 players who won on the PGA Tour already were eligible for the Masters. Johnson was on the range Tuesday afternoon trying to sharpen his wedges. Coverage of the warm-up tournament starts live from 3 p.m. and then ESPN will show live coverage of Day One and Two from 3 p.m.to 7.30 p.m. (ET).

This year, Johnson quipped in his deadpan style, his plan for Wednesday was to "take it really easy".

Mickelson is not believed to have an endorsement deal with the company, but he said, "I just thought I would give it a try".
