Ochoa, Norman: In their own words

Lorena Ochoa on the drug violence in Mexico:

"I think there's been a little bit of a misunderstanding. Especially in Guadalajara and in Mexico City, it's been safe there the last couple of years. A lot of things are happening in the north of the country, and it's a really bad situation. But I think the government is working as hard as they can. I think for the first time, they are pushing harder and bringing a lot of people to be involved in that situation."

Greg Norman on Tiger Woods:

"Tiger Woods to me is the best clutch putter I've ever seen in the game of golf. I think he and Nicklaus are equal inside six feet out. Outside nine feet, Woods is by far the best you've ever seen play the game. I think Tiger's ball striking was better in 2000. His putting now to his ball striking in 2000, he would win every golf tournament by four, five, fix shots."
