David, I like reading your stuff in the magazine. You write well and I like listening to you on your television coverage. My question is, growing up on the Euro Tour, what is the attitude towards American golf and how the players are treated on the American tour? To me, it seems that the Americans are treated extremely well. Is this the way you are/were treated on the Euro Tour? Also, is it too much of a difference between playing in several different countries and playing in different conditions to compare the two tours? Thanks.

While I do not wish you to say or write anything ill-willed toward Mr. Hal Sutton, I would like to know if you had any insight as to why he has been picked as the Ryder Cup captain for the American side. Couldn't we have someone a tad more jovial and light-hearted? This is not life and death, yet it seems that the quality that is most sought after is the ability to bleed red, white and blue when cut. If I might suggest a few, slightly less Spartan-like, candidates: How about Bill Murray (I know, he's not a PGA member), Peter Jacobsen, or Gary McCord? Someone with a sense a humor and a passion for camaraderie.

What is your opinion on Broomhandle-putters? I just read an interview where Colin Montgomerie said long putters should be banned. I know you are using one, or at one time have used one. Any ideas?

You have a sick, twisted, and obviously perverted sense of humor. That must be why I think you are the funniest guy since Lewis Grizzard. If I could put together a fantasy foursome for a round of golf, you would be first on the list, right in front of Lee and Arnold. We might not do that much damage to par, but we could seriously deplete a stock of frosty cold Dos Equis dark beer and I'm sure we could sufficiently terrorize all who came in contact with us.
Thanks for the tip on the III Forks Steak House in Dallas. It is now my favorite pit stop when I come back to Texas to visit my family. I had the opportunity to meet Rick there, and I believe everything he told me about you. I don't know if you are a barbecue aficionado or not, but if so, take a drive down to Waco some weekend and try "Underwoods." It's a Texas tradition that is slowly dying out. Keep it on the short grass.

For the life of me, I can never figure out how the pairings are picked before a tournament starts. Alphabetical? Names in a hat? Straws? And how do they pick the pairings heading into the weekend?

In your opinion, what weaknesses do you see in Tiger's game? I cannot find any -- wondering what your thoughts are?
