I enjoy your commentary and your columns. I especially enjoyed your "stick of dynamite and a sand wedge" comment on Phil Mickelson's lie in the rough on the 16th hole on Sunday of the PGA Championship. My wife, who is frequently subjected to watching me play Tiger Woods 2005, almost shot her drink out her nose and promptly exclaimed, "I can't believe he just said that! I thought he just said things like that on the game!" My question: My father-in-law really enjoys golfing with my brother-in-law and I. About a year ago he was in a horse riding accident and broke seven ribs. He is now golfing again, but he starts to get tired after 12 holes or so. Any recommendations on how to keep energy up in the latter holes of a round? P.S. If you're ever in Salt Lake City, we'd love a fourth.

I firmly believe television golf analysts will be the first up against the wall when the revolution comes. I particularly curse the one who first told us to put a mark on the ball to line up our putts. I have a friend who now religiously marks and lines up every six-inch putt. He is still on 27, he still putts like crap, but now it takes us five hours to get round. He also uses a club to line up his feet AND his shoulders on each fairway shot -- more tips from television analysts. Please, please, tell them to stop it right now.

I have a question about which title to use in polite society when referring to Annika Sorenstam. As you know, Annika is the only woman to shoot a 59 in a LPGA event. She has been know ever since as "Mrs. 59". Since she is divorced should I continue to use the Title "Mrs. 59" or should I change to "Mz. 59".

I had the great experience of getting an up-close look at the PGA Championship (working for a local media outlet gave me some sweet access). As you strolled past the gallery (mob) following Mr M. on the fourth on Sunday, folks were yelling "hey!" and stuff and you were stonefaced...perhaps the headset was noise canceling? And have you lost a bunch of weight? You look like it. Finally, the Mrs. gave me a ration because during the rain weather delay on Sunday afternoon she saw you doing an interview then called me and begged me to have you call her on my cell. Being a complete pro, I refused. She was still pissed. We (me and Penelope) enjoy your work!

Hello Mr. Feherty, your insightful and professional commentary is always something to look forward to when tuning in to a CBS golf broadcast. However, television poorly conveys the contours of the course as well as the trajectories of the shots. What are the advantages of going to see a tournament first-hand compared to a telecast?
