Woods defending champ
DORAL, Fla. (AP) — The first round of the Cadillac Championship is underway at Doral in Florida. Tiger Woods is the defending champ. Woods says the back injury that forced him off the course during the final round of Sunday's Honda Classic is feeling better. However, he decided to be extra cautious during yesterday's practice round, walking 18 holes to just chip and putt and study a course that is entirely different from the one where he has won four times.
Coach K feeling better after dizzy spell
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Coach Mike Krzyzewski (shuh-SHEF'-skee) is out of the hospital after feeling light-headed after a loss at Wake Forest.

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Cole Hamels says he won't throw off the mound for at least another week because of fatigue following his latest throwing session.
Hamels, the Phillies' opening day starter in 2013, entered camp behind schedule because of biceps tendinitis that began in November. Hamels indicated he was healthy after arriving at camp last month.
But after throwing off the mound Saturday for the third time this spring, Hamels no longer feels so good. He says he threw 35 pitches, but to his body "it felt like a thousand."
The 30-year-old Hamels went 8-14 with a 3.60 ERA in 33 starts last season.
