MAKING NEWS

Ian Poulter says he respects every professional golfer - but hey, when it comes right down to it, he says he is the only one capable of challenging world No. 1 Tiger Woods. "I know I haven't played to my full potential and when that happens, it will be just me and Tiger," the 32-year-old Brit, above, said in the March issue of the United Kingdom version of Golf World magazine. Poulter, ranked 22nd in the world, has seven European Tour wins but no PGA Tour wins in three years on tour (Woods has 62 in 12 years). He praised Woods as "one in 10-million."

The unidentified student did not want to prosecute. Marshall's attorney said the incident was not malicious, occurring "while he was joking around." Marshall, 36, a probation officer, declined comment: "Everything I say gets misconstrued.''
