We need to hear your predictions for the rest of the majors — who you like to do well in each one (besides yourself at the all-you-can-eat salad bar). It is fun to think about someone besides Tiger winning. Keep up the fun!
— Scott Hammon, Grand Rapids, MI

With Tiger in this horrific slump, I think he’s probably only going to win both of the remaining majors this year, and what’s with the salad bar remark, you A-hole? I’ll have you know I’m at my perfect mid-season announcing weight of 206 lbs. You should see me naked, with my announcer’s tan and everything. My face is like a pickled walnut, I have a little brown triangle beneath my chins, and a white stripe on my right wrist from my “What Would Jesus Do?” bracelet. Incedentally, Jesus would tell me he loves me.

I am trying to develop a pre-shot routine. What would be your advice for starting out? My woods and iron games are pretty good when i take my time but fall apart when i take too long. What should i do?
— Dedric Calvin, Washington, D.C.

Stop trying, and hit the damn ball. I don’t know who you’re playing with, but I guarantee you you’re pissing them off. The after-shot routine is what really counts, and in your case it sounds like it should consist of a brisk 20-yard walk to your ball, followed by another rapid, violent swing. And so on, and so forth…

After missing seven cuts in a row, has David Duval decided to re-dedicate himself to the game of golf or is he simply content with “going through the motions?”
— Sean Levchuck, Centerport, New York

Damned if I know, the guy wears a mask, and trains like Lance Armstrong.

Watching a PGA telecast isn’t the same when you’re not there. Keep up the excellent work and for putting up with Gary McCord! Now that the Feherty flattery is out of the way, I just have one question for you. What is wrong with David Duval?
— Jim, Newport Beach, CA

Damned if I know. Actually I think he’s Lance Armstrong. Have you ever seen them together?

I need your advice to correct my club swing. When using irons, all of my divots are pointing 10 to 15 degrees to the left of the target (I’m right-handed). I’ve tried aiming to the right of the target, yet the divots still are aligned from the outside-in. Aiming at the target, the ball will land left of it. Aiming to the right, the ball will often be on target.
C. Johnson Monterey, CA

Aim to the right, you idiot!
