That was Tiger Woods in his red shirt on Sunday at the Masters. That was Tiger Woods slipping on the green jacket. But it's not the same Tiger Woods.

Organizers of the British Open have refused a request by former champion John Daly to use a golf cart at the championship in Royal Portrush this month. Daly had applied to use a cart because of his arthritic right knee. The R&A said it was declining the request because “walking the course is an integral part of the championship and is central to the tradition of links golf.” It said it was important to “ensure that, as far as possible, the challenge is the same for all players in the field.” (AP Photo/Andres Kudacki, FIle)
