Fuzzy Zoeller has lost track of how many interviews he's given before the Masters, surprising for a guy who plays a limited schedule on the Champions Tour and stopped competing at Augusta National five years ago.

He doesn't need to follow golf to figure out what's going on.

Jordan Spieth started his rookie season without a card, finished at No. 10 on the money list, became the youngest American to play in the Presidents Cup and ended his remarkable...

A hole-by-hole look at Augusta National, site of the 78th Masters to be played April 10-13, with famous shots played at each one, the average score and where each hole ranks in difficulty since 1934:

No. 1, 445 yards, par 4 (Tea Olive): This slight dogleg right plays uphill and has a deep bunker requiring a 317-yard carry off the tee. The bunker has a tongue in the left side, so anything that enters the front of the bunker might be blocked by the lip. A bunker is left of...

Ten things to know about the 78th Masters, to be played April 10-13 at Augusta National Golf Club:

1. A MASTERS WITHOUT TIGER

Tiger Woods, a four-time Masters champion, had back surgery to relieve a pinched nerve 10 days before the opening round. He will not play the Masters for the first time since 1994, when he was a senior in high school.

2. ODE TO THE EISENHOWER TREE

Most players walking up the hill toward the 17th fairway at Augusta National can't help but notice the famous Eisenhower Tree: a loblolly pine, far enough from the tee to be a nuisance, sprawling at 65 feet and getting taller by the year.
