I thought Michael Campbell was one of those infuriating hot and cold could-be golf geniuses who kept us tantalized with his talent. But after reading some of the sages of the American press (and listening to Johnny Miller on television), whose knowledge of world golf is so profound, I've realized he's just a no-talent bum who had his 15 minutes of fame at Pinehurst, is bad for American golf and we'll never hear from him again. As a good Texan, it must be tempting for you to stick the spurs in as well.

A colleague asked recently what sport I was into. Golf. I asked about a sport he scoffed. He admitted to never have tried golf (except mini-golf, ha!), but there was no way to convince him that an activity not involving a team of running, jumping, sweaty men chasing a ball "in motion" could be considered a real sport. I figured the guy was a bonehead, anyway, but have found myself since, searching for a short, insulting and yet convincing answer that would wipe off the smirk from the golfomus ignoramus bonehead face. I know you are the best man for the job. Please, do provide one.

About three months ago you wrote about "a better game by chemistry." I'm 35 years old and recently was diagnosed with ADD. As I started taking some medication my golf game improved dramatically, obviously as a result of better concentration. I know Mark O'Meara went through the same situation in 1998 when he won both the Masters and the British Open. Is there any more material about this subject, more evidence of medication as a game improvement tool, are there more pros on the tour with ADD?

Sir, what do they mean when they say "his swing was over the top"? Also explain the reverse V -- and how long do you hold it or release it? Thank you.

Do you really believe the hype regarding the new low spin golf balls? Is it really going to help my game by dropping $50 on Nike's newest release?
