--WINGED FOOT: It gave us a great PGA. More important, it gave
us the hacker's salvation, the mulligan, named after David
Mulligan, a Winged Foot member.

--SNOW JOB: The three metropolitan areas with the most golfers
per capita: Minneapolis-St. Paul, Grand Rapids-Kalamazoo and
Milwaukee.

--ERNIE ELS: "The state of the courses in Europe is part of the
reason why Darren Clarke and Lee Westwood are moving to the

--BLUE MONSTER: Ray Floyd's touch-up didn't come cheap. It costs
$220, on a weekend in season, to experience Raymundo's handiwork.

--HANDICAPS: Fewer than 2% of women golfers in the U.S. have a
single-digit handicap.

--HALE IRWIN: On how Winged Foot affected the players in the '74
U.S. Open: "They were run over by a truck after the first round.
