VIRGINIA WATER, England(AP) European captain Nick Faldo picked Jose Maria Olazabal and Paul McGinley as his assistants Tuesday for the 2008 Ryder Cup - provided they don't make the team as players.
Nick Faldo was a six-time major winner but not popular.Nasty Nick, they called him, or worse, Nick the(rhymes with Brick).
AUGUSTA, Ga., April 2 -- Nick Faldo was playing a Monday practice round for the 1996 Masters when the awful truth hit him like a 7-iron between the windshield wipers of his Porsche: He had absolutely no idea what he was doing.

Henrik stenson bombs it like Tiger Woods and closes out tournaments like Raymond Floyd, but his on-course demeanor calls to mind an even more iconic figure. With his stoic visage, dark sunglasses and Nordic accent, "he's like the Terminator," says Luke Donald. Last year Stenson, a 30-year-old native of Goteborg, Sweden, made his debut at the Masters as a talented tease who wowed with his skills but had yet to develop a Schwarzenegger-like ability to blow away anybody and anything in his path. To very little fanfare Stenson shot a jittery 74-77 to miss the cut. Since then he has morphed into a ruthless winning machine. In the last 12 months Stenson has vanquished Retief Goosen and Padraig Harrington with an eagle in sudden death at the BMW International Open, holed the clinching putt at the Ryder Cup, mowed down Woods and Ernie Els in a final-round shootout in Dubai, stormed to victory at the Accenture Match Play Championship and surged to No. 5 in the World Ranking.

The new season began last week, at the Sony Open, the tournament the players all call Hawaii. The Mercedes-Benz Championship, the one Vijay Singh won at Kapalua in the first week of January?

The real start -- caddie changes in place, new gizmos on the practice tee, virgin irons in the bag, the exquisite grind of the Tour, all in the name of staying out there -- began for real last week. Charles Howell, who finished a shot back, said you start every season with all manner of golfing resolutions, but they're all on a short leash, one bad shot away from being discarded. The veteran Paul Goydos, a master of deadpan with a fitting nickname, had only one good week in 2006, a second-place finish in the Chrysler Championship, the final full-field event of the year, providing him with a $466,400 paycheck that allowed him to save his card. "I spent 10 weeks hoping that what worked at the end of last year would work in the new o
