The 18th hole at Augusta will haunt GREG NORMAN for ever. His wayward second shot last year cost him the most coveted title in golf.
The Masters Green Coat awaits the man whose nerve can sustain him through the toughest test of a golfer's courage on Augusta's lightning-fast greens, and over the watery graves that consume anything but the perfect shot. JACK NICKLAUS is the defending champion, but for once the odds could be on a non-American victory.

Brazilian Grand Prix
After months of mid-winter testing the heat will really be on as the leading contenders line up for the opening race of the 1987 season. The sweltering conditions will put driver fitness at a premium.
Just two drivers have been on the winner's podium in the last five years - Brazil's own Nelson Piquet in 1983 and last year's victor and reigning World Champion,
Alain Prost in 1982, 1984, 1985. Britain's Nigel Mansell will be looking for a winning start to this season after coming so close last year, and Ayrton Senna, in the new Lotus, will be looking for his first win in his home Grand Prix.
