Tiger Woods is human (and not for the reason you think) : how Tiger Woods is just like the rest of us, even when it comes to playing golf --
Offense wins championships, too : is defense really more important than offense? --

The myth of the hot hand : do players and teams ride the wave of momentum? Or are we (and they) fooled into thinking they do? --
Damned statistics : why "four out of his last five" almost surely means four of six --
