Dear Editor,>

Even though you showed the results of the Turning Stone event, there was not a single paragraph about the playoff victory of Matt Kuchar over Vaughn Taylor. And you dare to call yourselves a "golf magazine"! Just more worship of the PGA's big guns and dribble about the lack luster President's Cup! Shame on you!>

Dear Editor,>

The competition at the Presidents Cup was compelling and many of the stars from both teams performed terrifically. Your coverage of the event was superb.  However, in all of the excitement, all of the media have overlooked one of the most amazing feats in the history of the game.


Commemorating his lifelong achievement is a cement bench near the new practice putting green. (Before the renovation it was at the first tee.) Ovid Seylor, a long time San Francisco amateur, over his lifetime of playing at Harding Park eagled every hole on the course. Yes, he made an eagle on every hole! Four holes-in-one, four eagles on the par fives, and eagle twos on all ten par fours.

Now that's a compelling performance.

Thank you, gentlemen. My own view is that the stories by Morgan Pressel and about Missy Farr-Kaye are what made Golf World's "Pink" issue a keeper.
