'Your papers, please' must never be heard in America

Sunday's final round of the 2013 Masters Tournament will see co-leaders Angel Cabrera and Brandt Snedeker go off at 2:40 p.m.
Sixteen players have won major championships since Tiger Woods got his last one.
So much for local knowledge at the Masters.
The first tee shot clattered through a pair of pines on the left side of the 13th fairway, finally landing on the wrong side of Rae's Creek. Tiger Woods tried again, and this wasn't any better. Fans peered across the fairway and only heard the ball rifle through some bushes.
It's small consolation, but hardcore Tiger Woods fans who can't make it to the Masters for Thursday's opening round can at least take the morning off.
The defending Masters Tournament champion caused a roar to echo through the pines when he aced No. 16, the 170-yard par-3. Once Watson left the tee box, he dished out several high-fives.
Tiger Woods will play the first two rounds of the Masters with Luke Donald and Scott Piercy.
Notable pairings include Tiger Woods with Luke Donald and Scott Piercy at 10:45 a.m., and 2012 Masters champion Bubba Watson with Ian Poulter and Steven Fox at 10:34.
In the Feb. 26 Golf Notes fixture, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Americans have won the last 11 official PGA Tour events. They have won 10 in a row since Jonas Blixt of Sweden took the Frys.com Open title last October.
Russell Henley said he couldn't feel his arms or legs on the back nine of the Sony Open. He was trying to win his first PGA Tour event, and Georgia was on his mind.
Luke Donald, the No. 3 seed who is regarded among the best in match play, suffered his worst loss in 25 matches at this tournament. Louis Oosthuizen (No. 4) and Justin Rose (No. 5) never even reached the 17th tee when it was time for them to leave.
Ian Poulter obviously did a lot more than just fuss over his wardrobe and trendy apparel line during a long break before the Match Play Championship.
Piercy said his first was good and straight, but his second, with a sand wedge, one-hopped over the green and it took “two perfect shots” to make a bogey.
Piercy, one of 17 first-timers this year, said he was pretty amped up.
