Elias Says ...

A daily glance inside the numbers from the world of sports:

• The field for this weekend's Ford Championship at Doral includes Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh, Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Sergio Garcia, and Davis Love III. With the exception of the four majors, the season-ending Tour championship in 2004 and various invitation-only WGC events, those seven golfers have all played the same tournament only in events leading up to the Masters -- the Bay Hill (2000 and 2002) and the Players Championship (five times in the last six years).
