On the Radar: Tiger Woods, earthquake, Conrad Murray

Tiger Woods tees off during his first practice round Monday in Augusta, Georgia.

Here’s a look at some of the stories CNN.com reporters are working on Monday:

Tiger Woods' return - Golfing phenom Tiger Woods plans to return to the Masters on Monday, his first major tournament since he wrecked his car under unusual circumstances in November. Woods admitted to having extramarital affairs. Now he's back on the golf course. He was scheduled to practice Monday morning and give a news conference at 2 p.m. ET.

Mexico earthquake - Authorities in northwestern Mexico may get a more complete picture Monday of the damage caused by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck Baja California on Sunday, rattling Arizona and Southern California, and leaving at least two dead and 100 injured in Mexico, authorities said.

Conrad Murray hearing - Michael Jackson's last doctor may learn Monday whether his California medical license will be suspended while he faces trial in the pop star's death. When Murray pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in February, a judge prohibited him from using any anesthesia on patients, but he refused the prosecution's request to suspend the doctor's license. The Medical Board of California hearing on Murray's license is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. PT (4:30 ET) Monday.

Casey Anthony hearing - Attorneys for the mother who is accused of killing her daughter, Caylee, are expected to ask a judge for records from Texas EquuSearch, which helped look for the girl's remains. CNN affiliate WESH-TV in Orlando, Florida, is reporting that Anthony's attorneys want the names of volunteers who helped in the search, which the company said is a violation of their privacy.

    Your title caught me. I think Michael would prefer all of us to spent more time thinking about helping the earthquake victims and all the suffering humanity, esp. children, and less obsessing over him. Don't you agree.
    I know I've been guilty. There's little we can do till June 14, and very few can do anything then.
    I'll cont doing what little I can for his vindication. Also I'll attempt to help others in some way.

    I think that the use of Tiger's father in the NIKE commercial is a:

    DIS-HONERABLE EXPLOITATION OF THE DEAD
