Tiger Woods' hit perhaps the unluckiest shot in the history of golf yesterday, and to add insult to injury, may have inadvertently committed a rules violation to boot.

On Friday at the Masters, Woods' third shot to the Par-5 15th green was DEAD on the money, only it hit the flag stick and ricocheted back into the water.

It was an amazing fluke. Take a look:

Woods proceeded to take a drop, knock it close and save bogey, remaining in contention heading into the weekend, just three shots behind Jason Day.

The legality of said drop is in dispute, however.

L.A. Lakers star Kobe Bryant suffered a torn Achilles tendon late in the team's win over Golden State last night and is finished for the rest of the NBA season.

Standing on crutches in front of his locker, sweaty game uniform on his back and tears in his eyes, Kobe confirmed the news, and his disappointment.

"Just terrible," Bryant said. "It's a terrible feeling, man."

Bryant will undergo an MRI on Saturday, but the team is calling the injury a "probable" and "complete tear" that will end his 2012-13 season immediately.

Betting on Kate Middleton baby names has become a British craze this spring, which is pretty hilarious, but also not entirely surprising.

People will bet on anything, after all, and this is a particularly fun topic to speculate about. So which name is currently most popular among bettors?

Royal Family

Based on the number of bets placed, Britain's bookmakers say Alexandra is the clear favorite, with the odds already down to a surprising 2-1 as of Thursday.

Elizabeth, Diana and Victoria are close behind, following widespread speculation that the royal couple is expecting a girl - which is not even confirmed.

All things considered, and assuming Kate Middleton is pregnant with the royal heiress, the bookies - and the gamblers - are likely on the right track.

President Barack Obama has plenty of taxes in his budget proposal, with his plan to achieve $1.8 trillion in revenue featuring some truly weird ideas.

Not necessarily good, or bad. Just weird in the sense that you'd never expect or hear about them, unlike the public sequestration or fiscal cliff debates.

President Obama wants to establish a "Buffett Rule" of a 30 percent minimum tax rate for people making over $1 million in a year. That he's made clear.

Far less clear? Some of the other means of increasing revenue included in his 246-page budget. Here's a look at the five weirdest Obama taxes ...

Tiger Woods is the talk of this year's Masters, and not just because he's dating Lindsey Vonn, who's there to cheer him on, or because he's possibly the best golfer ever.

Guy's dropping f-bombs after shots that aren't even that bad!

On the 11th hole Thursday, Tiger hit the green in regulation, but left himself a long birdie putt ... which apparently warranted some (mostly light-hearted) profanity.

This isn't Woods' f-bomb, of course, and it won't be the last.

But when it takes place after halfway decent shots? The rest of the field had better watch out. Tiger is currently four behind the lead heading into round two.

There's little doubt who the MLB Fan of the Game was in this case.

Last night during the Mariners-Astros game in Seattle, a spectator snagged a foul ball IN HIS BEER, and then proceeded to chug what was left of his beverage.

Most of which ended up on his shirt ... but what can you do:

Other recent, great foul ball moments:

Lindsey Vonn made her Masters debut this morning.

The Olympic ski racing champion was spotted at the Augusta National Golf Club veranda next to a putting practice green watching Tiger Woods warm up.

With her not-inconspicuous sighting on golf's biggest stage, the couple - which recently confirmed they're dating - is clearly comfortable taking things public!

  • Tiger at the Masters
  • Lindsey Vonn at the Masters

Dressed in a long beige dress that hid a large brace on her surgically reconstructed right knee, Lindsey Vonn plans to watch the first hole in person.

After that, she'll have to watch from the clubhouse.
