When Colin Montgomerie got heckled at the U.S. Open, everyone told him to quit whining about it and play golf. When Davis Love III gets heckled [at the Match Play Championship in February] while playing with Tiger, everyone is up in arms. Have golf fans become worse or is this a case of the personalities involved?

I speak English, American English for this matter, and never had the opportunity to be in Ireland or whatever town you came from, so I'm not familiar with a lot of the slang and terms used in your columns and books and by some of your peers. Now that you are an assimilated Texan and since golf is another one of your homeland gifts to the world, I think it would be fair for you to write some sort of glossary of golf terms, specially for us with non-UK heritage, I promise to read again some of your gypsy terms plagued columns...

I am in my 50s and playing worse than ever. I have this terrible habit of sliding forward through the downswing so that I am way ahead of the ball. Now, on some days I top it, some days hit it fat, and occasionally fan it. At one time, I was a 12 handicap. Now, I am only barely making slight contact with the ball. I cannot stop sliding. Other than quitting, how can I stop this bad habit?

Why are there no Europeans in the world top 10? Now that Padraig Harrington's hair matches a pop idol, his game has fallen away.

I have an autographed photo of you and me, taken at a company tournament. In these trying economic times, can you tell me what it's worth?

I would to comment on your style of writing. I've read all the columns on GOLFONLINE and find them entertaining, to say the least. What I find somewhat disturbing, is that you seem to be getting meaner with your commentary. It doesn't appear as much "witty" as it does "mean", or at the very least, more cynical than in the past. Just my observation. I do still enjoy you on television and hope that I am wrong with the above.
-- Ken Rimes, Savannah, GA

You're right, I am getting meaner and more cynical, and occasionally even mindlessly judgmental, you idiot, cracker son of a bitch.
