MASTERS
Continued from Page 11B
six Masters.
Last year, Woods battled Phil Mickelson and David
Duval down the stretch to become the first player to
sweep the four majors consecutively.
Another tight finish loomed yesterday with six of
the top seven players in the world bunched on the
leaderboard. By the end of the day, they were scratch-
ing their heads.
"We were all trying to make something happen to
catch Tiger, because we knew he wasn't going to falter,"
said Mickelson, who closed with a 71 to finish third.
Woods accepted his green jacket from Augusta
National chairman Hootie Johnson - traditionally
that's the job of the defending champion.
Johnson ordered the course redesigned to make the
tournament a tougher test. The changes added 285 yards
to the length of the course, stretched bunkers and shift-
ed the tees.
Rain softened the course and allowed for lower scor-
ing, but perhaps it was Woods' presence that turned so
many top challengers into mush.
Two-time U.S. Open champion Ernie Els tried to
charge and wound up with an 8 on No. 13 by hitting
into the trees and into the creek.
Former Masters champion Vijay Singh went into the
creek, the crowd and the trees, then took a 9 on No. 15.
Goosen, who started the final round tied with Woods,
was already three strokes behind after three holes.
"I was kind of surprised, no doubt about it," Woods
said about no one making a run. "But that doesn't deter
me from my concentration."
Can anyone catch Tiger?
"We've been over this 100 times," Thomas Bjorn
said. "This being the Masters and him being up there, it
obviously puts you under a bit of pressure."
It was similar to Woods' record-breaking season in
2000, when he won the U.S. Open by a record 15
strokes and the British Open by eight strokes.
The praise sounds familiar, too.
"Give hima couple more years, and I think Tiger will
be greater than even Jack Nicklaus," Goosen said.
Woods is sure getting closer.
He won his seventh professional major, joining a
list that includes Bobby Jones, Gene Sarazen, Sam
Snead and Arnold Palmer, who made this Masters his
48th and last.
Woods also became the first player since the Mas-
ters began in 1934 to win a major championship four
years in a row.

Wolverines cruise to
sixth win of season

By Gennaro Filice
Daily Sports Writer
One week after erasing a 10-
stroke deficit to win the Indiana
Invitational in the final round, the
Michigan women's golf team gained
its sixth win of the year, dominating
the Hawkeye Invitational from start
to finish.
In a laugher as one-sided as Tiger
Woods versus anyone on the final
day of a major, the Wolverines oblit-
erated the competition, winning by
15 strokes. Although Michigan stum-
bled a bit yesterday, the lead it had
built in the first two rounds proved to
be more than comfortable. Michigan
recorded a 311 in its final 18 holes
- its worst total of the tournament
by 11 strokes.
Even with a shoddy final round of
77, senior LeAnna Wicks took the
individual title with a two-under 217.
Freshman Laura Olin finished the
tournament in fourth place, followed
closely by senior Bess Bowers, who
ended up fifth. Michigan's most
impressive statistic was that all six of
its golfers finished the tournament in
the top 20.
The Wolverines' best play of the
tournament came on day one. Michi-
gan set a dominant tone on Saturday,
recording a team score of 577 over
the tournament's first 36 holes.
This total gave the Wolverines a
commanding 21-stroke lead over sec-
ond-place Indiana. Wicks led the
way, scoring a 140 (68-72), and
found herself atop the leaderboard
after day one.
Wicks' first-round total of 68 tied
the Michigan single-round record.
The highlight of her exceptional

round came on the 11th hole.
"I chipped in for eagle on No. 11
and I was just like, 'Oh my gosh,"'
Wicks said. "The momentum just
built from there and carried me
through the rest of the round."
But Wicks was not the only
Wolverine to give chase to the hal-
lowed Michigan single-round scoring
record; after chalking up a first
round 74, Olin tore up the 'course on
day two and posted her own 68.
"I really had no idea I was playing
that well," Olin said. "I was just tak-
ing it one stroke at a time."
In her first start of the season on
Saturday, Bowers calmly carded a
total of 146 (75-71). Meanwhile,
Lemanski totaled a 150, which gave
her sole position of ninth place.
Junior Kim Benedict and senior
Cortney Reno both suffered from
rare off-days and scores of 152 and
155 respectively.
This was Michigan's last tourna-
ment before the Big Ten Champi-
onships, which will be held from
April 26-28.
Torehing the greens
With its sixth tournament title,
Michigan is continuing to build on
its record setting season. The
Wolverines have now doubled their
previous record of three, set in
1995-96 and 2000-01.

The gallery at The Masters watches in silence as Tiger Woods prepares to unleash a tee shot. With the
lengthening of the course this season, Woods gained an even greater advantage off the tee.
