Once Tiger Woods was finished at the 1997 Masters, golf would never be the same. The Golf Channel reports that he didn’t just win the tournament, he crushed the competition; the then-21-year-old Woods made one of the toughest golf courses in the world look like his own personal playground, winning by 12 strokes, the largest margin since 1862. It would be the first of five Masters titles for Tiger, and the first of 15 majors in his career.

The 23-year-old Henderson is sixth in the world women's golf rankings.

Henderson has been steady but unspectacular for much of 2021. She's made the cut in all seven tournaments entered, with a top finish of ninth at the season-opening Tournament of Champions.

Henderson has nine career wins on the LPGA Tour.

Uihlein trying to decide best path to return to PGA Tour .
PALM HARBOR, Fla. — Good play brings tough decisions for former U.S. Amateur champion Peter Uihlein. Uihlein worked hard to return his swing back to where it needed to be and the results were encouraging. He won on the Korn Ferry Tour two weeks ago in Las Vegas, and then last week he teamed with Richy Werenski to finish third in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Now for the hard part: where to play. With his victory in Las Vegas, Uihlein moved into the top 25 on the Korn Ferry Tour points list. The top 25 earn full PGA Tour cards for next season. But his third-place finish in New Orleans moved him up 44 spots to No. 148 in the FedEx Cup on the PGA Tour.
