Hey Dave, a "toast" to you on your 46th birthday (August 13):

From a wee Irish lad, a strange man he became,
First a fine golfer, now calling the game
At CBS Sports and EA Sports too
The bigshots are nervous, oh what will he do?
Will he blurt out an insult, tell an off-color joke?
Will he mention his "willy"? Of farts he once spoke
Thank God for the "kill switch" and 6-second delay
For they haven't an inkling what David might say

He's cunningly witty and funny as hell
But obsessed with ham sandwiches, seems troubled as well
He's sporting a goatee, still clinging to youth?
Don't worry old boy, 'bout getting "long in the tooth"
Sure, you may become saggy, get wrinkled old prunes,
Lose your mind and be constantly humming show tunes
But fear not, for as long as you're sexy and silly
There are hundreds of ladies who'd love to "free willy"

Happy Birthday, David!

-- Debbie Young, Toronto, Canada



I wish I had a witty question to ask, but I don't. Just wanted to say that I had the opportunity to meet you at the recent 'My Queer' Dino Ciccirelli charity scramble, and it was a pleasure. Hey, I just thought of a question. Will you be doing a book tour now that your new (heavy) book on the Ryder Cup is out? Good luck with sales on that one. I'm sure I will be seeing it at the top of the bestseller list soon.

I was watching The Golf Channel the other day, and they showed the highlights from the 1991 Ryder Cup. You actually won a couple matches, eh? You looked young, fit and like you knew what you were doing on the golf course. My god, man, what the hell happened?

Hey David, we met at Colonial. I was in a yellow hat, shirt, and navy slacks. Some friends of mine were wondering after everyone involved gets their cut (taxes, caddie, etc.) how much of the $1.2 million does Todd Hamilton put in his bank account for winning the Open Championship? Keep up the great work.

At the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills, I noticed that players in several of the early groups on the weekend were not marking their balls before their playing partners played (from off the green). On Sunday at the sixth green, Tim Petrovic hit a shot from the greenside bunker to within 2-3 feet and made no move to mark the ball. Spike McRoy was about to putt from off the green when the USGA official came over and said something to him. At that point, McRoy said to Petrovic, "Go ahead. You'll have to mark it." Was there some sort of organized protest going on? What's the scoop?

My buds and I just finished playing 70 holes of golf in one day. We played the TPC at Deer Run. I was wondering, what is the most golf you have ever played in a day?

Your "I swooned at Troon" article (July 2004 issue of GOLF MAGAZINE) is perhaps one the most insightful I have ever read. It works on so many levels: humility, humor, insight, anthropological, psychological, sociological, entomological, herpetological ... all right, the last two don't count, and I'm exerting too much effort, but let me end by saying, my man, you're not half bad.
