AUGUSTA, Ga. - So what would be the bigger story this week: Rory McIlroy, golf's next great moving target, winning his third straight major - something only Ben Hogan and Tiger Woods have done in the modern era - and bagging the only one he's hasn't won, or Woods winning his first since 2008 and 15th as a pro, to move within three of all-time leader Jack Nicklaus, his only rival who's ever mattered? Honestly, they're not really in the same solar system. Ask CBS. Heck, if Tiger wins this Masters after doing nothing in last 18 months, it might go down as one of the all-time biggest stories.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - When the 79th Masters tees off Thursday, the question for Rory McIlroy, the world's top-ranked player, is whether he can find a way to avoid the pitfalls at Augusta National Golf Club that have kept him from winning a green jacket. In a week when Tiger Woods returns to competition and Bubba Watson shoots for a third Masters title in the last four years, McIlroy can join Woods and four others on the short list of those who have won the modern career Grand Slam, and become the third to capture three straight majors.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - It's probably about what the world should have expected, from the former giant who once pretty much ruled these sacred grounds. Tiger Woods had his moments both ways. He pushed his first shot right. Was still able to get it on the green before 3-putting for a bogey. Then came back with a regulation birdie on a par-5 that most guys should be able to play that way. There was the club drop on the ninth tee, after he drove it into the woods. Good thing the ball hit a tree and bounced out into the short grass, albeit well back.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - The world hasn't seen much of Tiger Woods in the last year or so. And when we did, the snapshots weren't exactly tasty treats. If he wasn't bending over with back issues or limping because of knee problems, he was probably flubbing up some chip shots or hitting another drive into the next area code. It happens, even to the once-mightiest. Yesterday he made his first trip to the interview room at Augusta National in 2 years. He's played 47 holes this season.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Tiger Woods sat at the podium of the Augusta National Golf Club interview room Tuesday appearing completely at ease, smiling and engaging, loose and confident. Maybe the demeanor was the result of not having had to sit through a news conference in front of a throng of reporters for more than two months. But a more accurate description might have been the satisfaction he has experienced finding his golf swing in time for the Masters, an event he called "so special to me. " Of course, Woods, 39, has been excited about comebacks before only to find his game or injuries bring him down.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Mark O'Meara purely struck a rescue club at the difficult par-3 fourth hole at Augusta National Golf Club to within nine feet of the hole. Then it was Tiger Woods' turn. With some in the gallery telling their friends, "Bet you Tiger doesn't get it inside O'Meara," Woods put a pristine swing on a 3-iron and the ball did indeed stop closer to the hole. Woods turned to the gallery, removed his cap and bowed deeply as he drank in the applause. And yes, he sank the birdie putt.

Story lines for the 79th Masters abound, like the flowers on the dogwood trees that provide a lovely setting at the Augusta National Golf Club. Will Rory McIlroy win his third consecutive major championship and become the sixth player in golf history to complete the career Grand Slam? Can Bubba Watson make it three green jackets in four years? Will Phil Mickelson find his game somewhere in the drive down Magnolia Lane and be part of the chase toward his fourth Masters championship? Will 21-year-old Jordan Spieth finish the job on Sunday afternoon after challenging last year?

THE PROBLEM for Tiger Woods is not the fall. It is the reasons why most people believe the fall happened. On the surface, Woods has enough surgical scars to support the fact that his fall from the No. 1 golfer in the world to one who is now struggling to hold on to his PGA career is health-related. Over the last few years, Woods has dealt with a variety of injuries to his neck, knee, Achilles' tendon, elbow and back. Last spring, Woods had microdiscetomy surgery on his back.

THE GALAXY is dimming at an alarming rate. Kobe and Peyton ground to a rusty halt over the past few weeks, but hope sprang in the world of golf. No other sport offers the promise of renewal in the worst of February's doldrums; scenes of Hawaii, California and Arizona, dazzling green, while much of the rest of the country slumbers under icy white. Then, the stars fell. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson failed to reach the weekend in consecutive weeks. They played two punch-line tournaments, and never were a factor.

HE'S NOT a toothless Tiger, but he's got one fewer incisor. Yesterday, Tiger Woods had one of his front teeth accidentally knocked out after surprising girlfriend Lindsey Vonn by showing up in Italy to watch her record-setting, 63rd World Cup victory. This time it wasn't a 7-iron that did the damage, it was a camera. "During a crush of photographers at the awards podium at the World Cup event in Italy, a media member with a shoulder-mounted video camera pushed and surged toward the stage, turned and hit Tiger Woods in the mouth," Mark Steinberg, Woods' agent, told the Associated Press in an email.
