Steve Stricker helped Woods with putting, now needs help contending at Masters

Steve Stricker wouldn't mind Tiger Woods returning the favor.

Stricker spent nearly an hour working on Woods' putting at Doral, and the lesson paid immediate dividends. Woods had a superb week on the greens and has won his last two tournaments. Now if only Stricker can get Woods to show him how to win a green jacket.

The Masters is the only major in which Stricker has never been in serious contention. He was runner-up in the PGA Championship, playing in the final group at the British Open and was tied for the lead with nine holes left in a U.S. Open.

The guy known for his pure putting has never been able to figure out Augusta National. Stricker played 14 holes of practice with Woods when he arrived.
