Phil Mickelson has agreed to compete in the LG Skins Game, the first time in 5 years the three-time major champion will play in the event. Mickelson, the No. 2 player in the world and a two-time winner on the PGA Tour this year, joins a four-man field that includes two-time defending champion Stephen Ames. The other two spots will be filled out this summer, although an invitation has been offered to Sergio Garcia as winner of The Players Championship. The LG Skins Game, which began in 1983, will be played Nov. 29-30 at Indian Wells Golf Resort in California.

Tiger Woods' father, angry at not being invited to the Ryder Cup by the PGA of America, said he would skip the three-day golf competition between the United States and Europe. "This is my protest at the way they treat the parents," Earl Woods was quoted as saying in yesterday's The Mail on Sunday of London. "It makes no sense, and it's not justified. Tiger is only 21 and does not have a girlfriend, but they don't think enough of the parents to invite them instead. " The PGA of America pays the expenses of wives or girlfriends of the 12 U.S. golfers to the biennial event, which begins Friday in Spain.

Tiger Woods has started to hit balls with short irons and says he is able to stabilize his rebuilt left knee. The 14-time major champion says he is on schedule to play the Masters. Woods had reconstructive surgery a week after winning a playoff for the U.S. Open title in June. His news conference in Thousand Oaks, Calif., yesterday was his first since that victory. Six months after surgery to repair a ruptured ligament - his third operation in six years - Woods said he was excited: "Everything has been right on schedule.

Is Tiger Woods as good as he was in 2000? Could he be even better? Can he win his third major of the year? As Woods and a phalanx of would-be pursuers prepare for tomorrow's start of the PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club, these loom as the biggest questions in golf. In 2000, when he won three majors in a year, it seemed that Woods couldn't possibly be any more dominating and intimidating. And he didn't just win; he humbled the field in the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach by 15 shots, he cruised to an 8-shot victory in the British Open at St. Andrews, and he closed the deal at the PGA Championship at Valhalla by nipping Bob May in a playoff.

Golf superstar and all-around nice guy Tiger Woods has become engaged to his Swedish sweetie, Elin Nordegren. "She called this morning and was incredibly happy," Nordegren's father, Thomas, told the Swedish newspaper Expressen. "I only spoke shortly with them on the telephone, but they were happy and I congratulated them. " A spokesman for the Shamwari Game Reserve in South Africa said Woods, 27, proposed to the 23-year-old model Tuesday during a walk at the game park outside Port Elizabeth.

Activity in the fan zone located to the left of the fairway on the mammoth par-5, 605-yard ninth hole at Aronimink Golf Club came to a standstill when Tiger Woods stepped up to the tee Sunday in the final round of the AT&T National. It's good they were paying attention because Woods' drive was coming their way. The crowd scattered, then scrambled to see where the ball landed while roving marshals shooed them away and began to make a clearing. The ball came to a stop in front of a photo vendor on dirt packed so tightly it may as well have been concrete.

TIGER WOODS was never a child. He was a robot programmed to play golf by a demanding father much like Joe Jackson did with Michael. This programming reminds me of the East Germans and Soviet Union, which dominated the Olympics by separating their youth from their parents and sending them to a sports gulag. Remember that Andre Agassi recently admitted his hatred of tennis but was forced into it by a demanding parent. When children, like many child stars now living in misery, are forced to become adults, they then become children when they're adults.

Tiger Woods hit another one of those amazing shots that only he can hit yesterday - 217 yards, out of a bunker, up and over a stand of tall trees, nothing but pin. Then he made the 12-foot birdie putt. "It was one of the all-time best shots I've ever made," said Woods, who rarely speaks in superlatives. "I hit it so flush it was scary. " The latest installment in shots only Tiger Woods can pull off came in the early morning, when he was finishing the final two holes of his second round.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. - Tiger Woods keeps saying his return to peak form is a "process," and he says he continued on that path at the U.S. Open even if he didn't seriously challenge the leaders in Sunday's final round. Woods, who dazzled with a 15-shot victory the last time the Open was played at Pebble Beach Golf Links in 2000, carded a 72-hole score - a 3-over-par 287 - that was 15 strokes worse than his record score that year. He followed Saturday's scintillating 66 with a 75 in the final round.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - At about 5 p.m. yesterday, leaders Bubba Watson and Jordan Spieth stood on the ninth green. About 75 yards away, Bernhard Langer, the standard-bearer for the AARP delegation, was explaining why a record six 50-somethings not only made the Masters cut but half of them spent yesterday in contention. On the ninth green, Watson made a birdie putt that completed a four-shot swing atop the leader board over two holes and had the Masters caretakers heading to his locker to get out the green jacket he won 2 years before.

AUGUSTA, Ga.- In 1963, Jack Nicklaus became the youngest Masters champion. Seventeen years later, Seve Ballesteros became the youngest. And seventeen years after that, Tiger Woods took the record lower. That was 17 years ago. For a while, it sure looked as if 20-year-old Jordan Spieth was going to keep the timeline intact. He was trying to make a whole bunch of history. Youngest to win this major. Youngest to win any major in 83 years. Second Masters rookie to get a green jacket since 1935.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Little Amy Mickelson stood on her tiptoes to reach up and hug her husband, Phil. They held the embrace for a few beats, awash in mournful fatalism. It was as if something died. Well, it did. For the first time in 20 years, neither Mickelson nor Tiger Woods will play on the weekend at the Masters. Between them, they won seven of the previous 17 tournaments played at Augusta National, but their bodies are failing them. With very little pomp, the circumstance atop the golf world has transformed.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - As you may have heard, Tiger Woods is not playing in the Masters this week because of his recent back surgery, robbing the patrons of a chance to see the dominant golfer of an era that began with Woods' first green jacket back in 1997 and continued through his 14th major title in the 2008 U.S. Open. Woods' chief challengers from that period - Phil Mickelson (43 years old), Ernie Els (44), Jim Furyk (43), Steve Stricker (47), and Vijay Singh (51) - may be on, or close to reaching, the back nine of their careers, and the players ready to represent the next generation of greats are lining up. Some qualify thanks to victories in major championships: Rory McIlroy (24)

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Augusta National Golf Club chairman Billy Payne said Wednesday that the Masters has not changed the way it positions its rules officials, a policy that came under criticism last year during controversy over an illegal drop taken by Tiger Woods at No. 15. Woods was found to have not taken a proper drop after finding the water with his third shot on the par-5 hole in the second round. It was not until the next day that Woods was penalized 2 strokes, but he was not disqualified for having signed an incorrect scorecard that had not included the assessment.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - John Monash was an Australian boy of common background who became a career soldier and rose through the ranks to become a general, famously fearless for leading his troops under fire, a Down Under version of Pershing or Patton. In World War I, he received a knighthood on the battlefield for his bravery and innovation, especially during his duty on the brutal Western Front, where his involvement turned the war. His legacy as a gentleman and a public servant remains sacrosanct in his home country, where his name graces a university, a hospital and two towns.

WE ALL KNEW this was bound to happen one of these years, that Augusta National was going to have to make due without one of its most identifiable mainstays. No, we're not talking about the Eisenhower Tree, even though that'll be missed too. But can the folks in those green jackets hold a Masters without Tiger Woods? We're going to find out. It's something the other three majors have all had to deal with before, and it's not like they stopped playing them. But it is a first for the season's first one. There's every chance that Woods, who had back surgery last week, will miss more in the coming months.

It is Masters week, which heralds both the opening of the ornamental shrubbery season and, for casual fans, the real start of the professional golf year. Down there among the azaleas and the burbling brooks and the history that blankets the Augusta National course like a morning dew, there is the realization that the game's blossoming might be a little delayed this year, if it arrives at all. The man who has made everyone a lot of money in the last 17 years, the one who can lure those casual fans from the driveway to the living room on a lovely spring afternoon, is recovering from back surgery.

THE TRADITION Unlike Any Other this year might earn its motto in a most undesired manner. Unlike any other year in recent memory the giants of the game could be absent, with no field of worthies to fill their shoes. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have injuries that will, at best, make them game-day decisions when the Masters begins in 10 days. Woods, with a violent swing and a litany of leg injuries in his recent past, has a bulging disk in his back that has brought him to his knees this season.

TIGER WOODS is still no closer to knowing whether he will be able to play in next month's Masters as he struggles with back pain. The world No. 1 withdrew from last week's Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida because of his aching back and remains unsure whether he will be fit for this year's first major, starting April 10 at Augusta National. "For Augusta, it's actually a little too soon, to be honest with you," he told reporters yesterday at a sponsorship announcement for the AT&T National.
