Tigermania has gripped the Internet, where at least 11 World Wide Web sites are dedicated to Masters champion Tiger Woods. Jack Nicklaus and Raymond Floyd, by contrast, have one apiece. Our favorite Woods site, called the Unofficial Tiger Woods Web Page (www.geocities.com/colosseum/2396/tiger.html) has cyberspace standards like photos and stats, but also features the Tiger Woods School Report Cheat Sheet. On it are several fascinating, little-known facts about Woods, such as his seventh-grade GPA (3.86) and his waist size (28), that students can use in papers. Here are some other prominent pages.

Tigermania has gripped the Internet, where at least 11 World Wide Web sites are dedicated to Masters champion Tiger Woods. Jack Nicklaus and Raymond Floyd, by contrast, have one apiece. Our favorite Woods site, called the Unofficial Tiger Woods Web Page (www.geocities.com/colosseum/2396/tiger.html) has cyberspace standards like photos and stats, but also features the Tiger Woods School Report Cheat Sheet. On it are several fascinating, little-known facts about Woods, such as his seventh-grade GPA (3.86) and his waist size (28), that students can use in papers. Here are some other prominent pages.

Ray Floyd www.rayfloyd.com
The only site in this group that's truly interactive. Guests can get answers to questions about their golf swings.

Tiger Woods pages.prodigy.com/boshk/woods.htm
In a post-Masters poll, 51% said Jack Nicklaus was the best player ever, while 29% voted for Tiger.

Jack Nicklaus www.nickiaus.com
Site has high production values but not much interactivity—sort of like the man himself.

Arnold Palmer palmer.sportsline.com/
Palmer may be golf's king, but he's a serf in cyberspace. One of only two Palmer Web sites, it's pretty mundane.

John Daly www.gripitandripit.com
Site administrators might want to consider a redesign—one of the guest areas is called The 19th Hole.

Helen Alfredsson www.algonet.se/~gulthus/helen/photoald.htm
Disappointingly bland considering Alfredsson's colorful personality.

Michelle McGann www.geocities.com/wellesley/2526/
Little more than stats and photos, but Mariah Carey's Hero plays while you visit.
