Hello David, thanks for all your witty, intelligent commentary on the fairways; it makes for a nice yin and yang contrast with that evil McCord. My question: Having traveled a lot, do you speak any other languages: Gaelic? McCordian? Hubspeak? Thanks for your time.

First off, I always enjoying reading your columns/rantings, they are the greatest. It's the first thing I turn to while sitting in my reading room, i.e., on the throne. While, like most Americans, I've never met Payne Stewart, I just wanted you to know that articles like yours endear him to me more. I always thought that he was a great golfer but reading stories like the one you told make him seem more down to earth too. I'm sure you feel privileged to have known him, and I'm privileged to read what others have to say about the personal, albeit sometimes sadistic, side of Payne. If you have more stories about him, please run them in the future. Thanks for the story and I hope for many more years of your columns to come.

Given your access to a large number of golfers, especially some of whom I will undoubtedly find playing in a group ahead of me sometime in the future, I would like you to address the issue of golfers urinating on the course. The idea that my golf ball would be dampened by another's recycled beverage is particularly disturbing given my tendency to take deep divots and clean my golf ball with the "lick the thumb, wipe the golf ball with the thumb and repeat" move. Should there be a penalty assessed against the offenders or should I just change my swing path and my golf ball cleaning move? I would sincerely appreciate your input on this issue. Thanks in advance.

I am a boogie golfer...looking for game improvement clubs. My question...what is the difference in graphite versus steel shafts in irons and who should use either?

Hi David. I recently read that the rule makers are considering changing the golf ball in tournaments so that it will not travel as far since golf is becoming "too easy" for the tour pros. What a great idea! They should also put extra weights in Olympic runners' shoes so they won't run so fast. Perhaps they should let some air out of Lance Armstrong's tires so he'll quit winning the Tour de France. Come to think of it, those NASCAR cars are going really fast these days. Maybe it would be helpful to decrease the number of cylinders the engines can have.
With hopefully obvious dripping sarcasm,
