Woods edges near to return Cuddihy runs in Oz Morgan seals win Jankovic defeated

GOLF: Tiger Woods is hitting golf balls again and working out at his home in Florida, a source close to his camp has revealed.

However, no timetable for a return to the sport has been set by the world number one, who decided to take an indefinite break from competition after admitting in December he had cheated on his wife.

"He's working on his marriage," said the source. "He is hitting some balls and working out."

The season's first major, the US Masters, starts on April 8.



Michael's into final

RUGBY: An entertaining encounter at Donnybrook yesterday saw St Michael's book their place in the Leinster Senior Schools Cup final on St Patrick's Day with a 15-6 win over St Gerard's, Bray.

They were made to work for it by a solid St Gerard's, coached by Herald columnist Eric Miller.

But this was St Michael's day, as they scored three tries to nil through Mark Corballis, David Egan and Corballis again, and they could have been more comfortable had out-half Cathal Marsh brought his kicking boots -- he missed with all six attempts.

Josh Glynn hit two penalties for Gerard's to make it 10-6 at half-time, but Corballis set up a final clash with Clongowes.



Cuddihy runs in Oz

ATHLETICS: Irish women's 400m record-holder Joanne Cuddihy will run her first race in more than a year at the Melbourne Track Classic tomorrow night.

The Kilkenny woman is back in the sport after a break to complete her medical studies.

Also in action in Melbourne will be Mary Cullen, who runs in the 5,000m -- her first serious outdoor track race for two years.



Morgan seals win

CRICKET: Dubliner Eoin Morgan made an unbeaten 110 yesterday to drag England to a victory over Bangladesh that gives them an unassailable 2-0 advantage in the one-day series.

Chasing a target of 261, England were 68-3 when Morgan came in, and then collapsed to 229-8, but the ex-Ireland star's brilliant innings saw them home.



Jankovic defeated

TENNIS: Top-seed Jelena Jankovic, of Serbia, was bundled out in the first round of the Monterrey Open in a 5-7 6-4 6-4 upset to Latvia's Anastasija Sevastova.
