It will be the first shuttle

GRAPHIC=BAM The first major of the year is
ENG#=3 set to begin tomorrow as the Masters


opens up 72 holes of championship play
at Augusta National.

The Masters is about tradition
more than any other event -

but there are all kinds of
changes awaiting fans who may be
traveling down to the tournament this
year. Most notable is a brand new
spacious entrance at the course that
allows fans to get in and out much
easier than in the past.

However, there are also some
inconvenient, but necessary security
measures. Fans must go through metal
detectors and cell phones are not
allowed on the course.

And in some ways Augusta has just
caught up with the times - finally
paving parking lots and pedestrian

walkways.

GRAPHIC=None The next Star Wars movie is more
ENG#=2 than a month and a half away, but fans


are already starting to line up outside
some theaters.

VO-NAT VO-NAT



A group is far, far away from the
actual venue.

The Revenge of the Sith is set to
debut in seven weeks at the ArcLight
theater in Los Angeles.

But some skeptical fans still
think it'll be shown at Grauman's
Chinese Theater a mile away.

So they're staying put.

They told a reporter yesterday
that they hope the publicity
surrounding their campout will convince
the theater to play the movie.
