Gliha relished his role as the teaching pro cleverly disguised as the teaching pro. "Roberta obviously likes me," he says. "She let me have a brief affair with one of the deceased."

While writing Putt to Death, Isleib realized that she liked creating problems more than listening to other people's. She gave up her day job to concentrate entirely on writing. Yet for all the opportunity that Cassie has provided her, Isleib is setting aside the character for a while. After all, Cassie has made it to the Open, is getting along with her father, has gotten rid of the troublesome boyfriend and has her drinking under control. She is finally more secure psychologically and less conflicted as a competitor. "Personally, I'm experiencing a mild feeling of loss," says Brady. "Cassie has become quite real to us. I'd like to see where she could go."

Isleib does plan to bring Cassie back someday. With so much attractive, youthful talent on the LPGA tour, there will be opportunities for her. Besides, says Isleib, "I like her." Enough not to kill her off.
