I carry an eight handicap, and I, too, have spent many an afternoon on the golf course taking "Billigans" and picking up before holing out. It's called practice. Any golfing partner who provides running commentary and unsolicited advice, plays at a plodding pace and takes 200 shots to card an 82 would never play golf with me again.

Clinton's scoring system for golf—lie and cheat—is the same one he used for politics. In his mind he did not have sex, oops, I mean six, on that last hole.
JAMES R. JOYCE, Monson, Mass.
Clinton's delusion that he could practice for six months and qualify for the Senior tour—if only he had the time—is a testament to how little he understands the game he professes to love.
JEFF BAKA, Sioux Falls, S.Dak.
Your foray into politics is most unwelcome. We have not had a Republican ex-president since Eisenhower who did not get a pardon or give one to his predecessor or staff, yet you choose to bash the integrity of the man who gave us eight years of peace and the greatest economic boom we have ever known. Cheating in golf is not nearly as bad as cheating in elections. Is that article meant to help us accept recession and war? So much for the corporate press being liberal.
R. BEAUCHAMP, Southfield, Mich.
It sounds like the only tiling worse than playing golf with Clinton is being stuck in the group playing behind him.

The Ones That Got Away
In your list of NBA players who could have played in this year's NCAAs (Dearly Departed, March 24), you fail to mention the impact Mike Dunleavy might have had on the Duke Blue Devils' tournament chances had he not left for the NBA. Dunleavy was a first-team All-ACC performer in addition to being the third pick in the NBA draft.
NICK PROIA, Boston
Don't you think UConn might have gone a little deeper in this year's tournament if their All-America, Caron Butler, had come back for another year? All Butler has done this season is lead NBA rookies in scoring and steals.
