While the coverage of his personal travails has faded, his golf game has yet to recover. And he's once more undergoing a self-imposed swing change. In the pursuit of perfection, Woods keeps remaking his golf swing. That may be the biggest flaw in his golf game, his constant tinkering, according to an article in Golf Digest based on interviews with the five golf teachers who have coached Woods.

During the two previous swing makeovers, Woods went through droughts before emerging with a string of victories. Maybe it will happen again.

Maybe.

But even his professional peers no longer tremor in their golf shoes at his presence. This week, Ian Poulter, told the Chicago Tribune that Woods wouldn't even finish in the top five at Augusta.

Woods responded crisply at a press conference: "Poulter's always right, isn't he?"

As ESPN columnist Gene Wojciechowski wrote: "Memo to the golf gods: Please let Woods and Poulter be paired together Saturday or Sunday."

The Masters favorites this week?

Phil Mickelson is the odds-on favorite. He's got momentum and also plays well at Augusta. He posted a 20-under-par victory last week at the Shell Houston Open. Last year, Mickleson won his third green jacket at Augusta.
