DAN QUAYLE: Late-breaking news from a Golf Channel chat between
the former vice president and Jim McLean: "Obviously, I'm
looking at running for President in the year 2000." Who needs CNN?
MR. 59 IV: Mauricio Molino, an Argentine, shot 59 during a pro
tournament, near Buenos Aires, joining Chip Beck, Miguel Angel
Martin and the original Mr. 59, Al Geiberger, as the only others
to do so.
$1 MILLION: The ShopRite Classic becomes only the fifth LPGA
event with a purse this high. On the PGA Tour only one event has
a purse this low.
BOB DOLE: On President Clinton's low scores: "I don't know
whether he shot an 83 or a 283 or a 483. You'll never really
know." Well, we can probably rule out 483.
