NEW YORK (AP) - CBS' sports chief promises the network won't
pull punches in talking about the Tiger Woods sex scandal during
coverage of this year's Masters golf tournament.

CBS News and Sports President Sean McManus said Monday that
"this year Tiger's story is a major factor in the golf tournament
and we are going to cover it fully."

CBS presents live coverage of the last two rounds of the
tournament this weekend. It will be Woods' first time back at
competitive golf since the story involving his multiple mistresses
and troubled marriage unfolded. If Woods makes the cut and is among
the leaders this weekend, McManus acknowledged the tournament will
get some extraordinary ratings.

McManus said nobody at the Masters has talked to him about
Woods' role in the CBS coverage, and he's given no instructions to
his announcers.
