Rick Reilly wrote what every sportswriter and broadcaster should have known many tournaments ago: Tiger Woods is an outstanding golfer, but he's not playing at the same level as he was two years ago (THE LIFE OF REILLY, June 28). TV doesn't usually show every shot of someone nine strokes off the lead, and we don't need to see Tiger when he's in that position.

I read with interest Jackie Stewart's rating of the top five U.S. F/1 drivers (INSIDE MOTOR SPORTS, June 28). Stewart is entitled to his opinion and certainly knows of what he speaks, but I was shocked that he omitted Peter Revson, a contemporary of his in the early 1970s. After a brief flirtation with F/1 in 1964, Revson returned in '72, won two Grand Prix races in '73 and likely would have gone on to more success had he not been killed when his car's suspension broke during pre-race car testing in South Africa in March '74. While his achievements don't match those of Dan Gurney, Mario Andretti or Phil Hill, I would say that what he achieved in a very brief career exceeded the accomplishments of Eddie Cheever or Danny Sullivan.
