TIGER WOODS will win the Grand Slam. He owns Augusta National. Ditto for Torrey Pines, the muni in San Diego where the U.S. Open will be held. Royal Birkdale rewards shotmaking more than any other British Open course. And the PGA Championship, in the steamy heat of Detroit in August at aptly named Oakland Hills, will reward fitness.

TIGER WOODS will win the Grand Slam. He owns Augusta National. Ditto for Torrey Pines, the muni in San Diego where the U.S. Open will be held. Royal Birkdale rewards shotmaking more than any other British Open course. And the PGA Championship, in the steamy heat of Detroit in August at aptly named Oakland Hills, will reward fitness.

NOT A single U.S. golfer, male or female, will flunk a drug test.

THE AMERICANS will win the Ryder Cup. The event is in the U.S. (Valhalla, in Louisville), and the captains will make a difference. Paul Azinger ( U.S.) has a passion for team play that will infect his squad, whereas Nick Faldo ( Europe) made his career by playing the lone wolf.
