Tiger Woods May Alter Preparation Plans Before The Masters

Having not won a major in six years could be a reason Tiger Woods is considering changing his pre-Masters preparation.Woods shot a 71 in the first round of the Honda Classic Thursday and afterward said he could alter his playing schedule or  the way he prepares for the year’s first major in April at Augusta National.“It could be all of the above,” he said to ESPN.After the Honda Classic, Woods is scheduled to defend his titles at next week’s WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral and the Arnold Palmer Invitational in three weeks, giving him two tournament weeks off prior to the Masters, which begins April 10.“Still looking into that, yeah,” Woods said of his preparation. “Still looking to possibly make some changes going in there.”Woods being Woods, he did not elaborate on the potential changes.He skipped last week’s WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, and his 1-over 71 at PGA National on Thursday was just his eighth official round of 2014. He missed the secondary 54-hole cut at the Farmers Insurance Open and also played the Dubai Desert Classic.The only tournaments he could add are the Valspar Championship in two weeks at Innisbrook, near Tampa, Fla.; the Valero Texas Open in San Antonio, which follows Palmer’s tournament; or the Shell Houston Open, which is played the week before the Masters.To play near Tampa would mean competing four straight weeks, something Woods rarely does; he has not played the San Antonio event since first turning pro in 1996; and Woods has never played the Houston Open or the week prior to the Masters as a pro. read more

The world of vision

first_imgFrom the time immortal there lies a bridge between the beginning and end. This bridge is an ongoing process.  pre-historic character have established a contour through a flowing evolution. The contour which is ever changing, depending on environment and nature. These are evident in both physical and metaphysical aspects. But the spirit remains eternal. A mutilated fundamental entity results in detachment and destruction from the main-land.  Our dream revolves around that very spirit,  save some external modifications. Banerjee is an architect of that venture. Apparently it seems though that the sculptures and drawings are mercy pre-historic in nature and reflection.  An intense study of the same portrays it as a link between the two ends. In a nut-shell it’s art for art’s sake, vibrant with a esthetic beauty.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’For Banerjee, drawing is an essential form of self expression. He understood that drawing is not just taking notes of what the artist sees with his eyes, but also with his third eye. The world of vision and of fantasy, the conscious and the sub-conscious influences the artist. Drawing shows how an idea is born in the artist’s mind, the innate possibilities of the concept at the embryo stage,as it begins to grow naturally. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixTanmay’s world has frozen scenes that sometimes depict Neolithic rural life or hark back to Mesolithic primitive times. Some of the protagonists might be clothed but one or two appear nude. As in cave painting, a figure might be drawn over another. People are always there with domesticated animals. A normal pastoral scene gains momentum when one of the figures appear in the nude. One begins to wonder what difference would it make if we went around in Adam’s swear. Tanmay’s lines dance to the tune of unheard music. They are never nervous, but always bold, strong and fluid. They move from dark tone to lighter ones and gradually reach the final stage of white.They sometimes move into a calligraphic world. At times he enhances the linear movements by adding shades and areas of corresponding darkness. This is a world of reality that is tinged with fantasy. When: May 25 – May 31Where: Lalit Kala Academi, Rabindrabhavan Timing: 10 am to 7pmlast_img read more
