LOS ANGELES (AP) - Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy were talking down the 17th fairway at Riviera when they stopped for a moment as McIlroy began rehearsing elements of a swing.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - The NBA's best players have arrived in Hollywood for a star-studded All-Star weekend. None of those stars currently play for the hometown Lakers or Clippers, and that dearth will be discussed after Saturday's practice.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Tiger Woods waited 12 years to get back to Riviera and lasted only two days. Woods had three straight bogeys early on the back nine and didn't play nearly well enough to make up for it. He shot 5-over 76 and missed the cut in the Genesis Open.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Albert Pujols is trim and ready to dust off his first-baseman's mitt. The 38-year-old former MVP is looking to reverse a downward-trending career, in part by contributing more in the field now that he has shaken off injuries. The Angels are hoping Pujols can share the designated hitter's role with Japanese sensation Shohei Ohtani.
