I have never read your column. However, my husband does refer to me as "she who must be obeyed," so I am enamored by your wisdom. I have a question. Why is it that my husband watches a golf tournament, videotapes the same golf tournament, watches TV highlights of that golf tournament later that evening and then reads about that same golf tournament in the newspaper the next day? This is a consistent pattern of behavior that happens not only for the majors, but most golf tournaments. Does this make any sense? Did he not "get" it the first time? Why spend time watching highlights about something you already saw? Why read about something you saw and also videotaped so you could see it again? Is there something wrong with my husband? Should I have his brain comprehension tested by a professional? If you have any insight into this behavior I'd be forever grateful.

With the NHL strike still unresolved, I wonder, what would aggravate PGA Tour golfers enough to go on strike? Who would cross the picket line?

It dropped into the low 30s today on Hilton Head Island ... very unusual. I have several friends who REFUSE to play golf anytime it is not 70 and sunny. I say strap on the bag, pull on the gloves, and get out there. What is your limit for playing in cold weather?

My father and I and some of our degenerate golf buddies are planning a trip to Scotland next summer (St. Andrews, Prestwick, Troon, Turnberry, etc.). My father said that while he was still vertical it might be a good idea to get in a few rounds (golf, not Guinness, David) in Ireland while we are in that part of the world. I might be able to get two or three days of golf in prior to Scotland. Any suggestions? I was thinking about Old Head, but it seems that most of the other great golf courses I'd want to play are on the West Coast. Or I could just go to Dublin and work my way from pub to pub trying to discern who has the freshest Guinness. Please let me know your recommendations.

Recently, pgatour.com did a match up of well-known golfers who looked like well-known celebrities .... Phil Mickelson - Hugh Grant, etc. I was wondering who you thought you looked like (with goatee). My first thoughts included that Katsumoto guy from "Last Samurai" (Ken Wantanabe) or the other end of Mr. Ed. Since you never answer my emails, I'll assume, in advance, I'm being insulted.
