You might find it interesting that while 35 countries have issued more than 60 golf-related stamps, the only other champion golfers to be featured have been Harry Vardon, by Jersey in the Channel Islands, and Gary Player, by South Africa.

HAVING A BRAWL
I enjoyed Ron Fimrite's article (Take Me out to the Brawl Game, Aug. 27). I'm an usher at Atlanta Stadium, and I would like to publicly denounce the San Diego Padres for their behavior on Aug. 12.
It was my job to try to contain the fans, which proved hard because the Padres tempted them by cussing, throwing cups of water and jumping into the stands. The Padres (as well as the Braves) are lucky the fights didn't occur a day earlier when the Braves held a promotion and handed out 40,000 baseballs.
In your 1984 College & Pro Football Spectacular (Sept. 5), I was thrilled to see an article on Division III football. However, where was Augustana College of Rock Island, Ill.? Surely, you remember us? We won the NCAA Division III national championship last year when we beat Union 21-17.
Not only was Augustana's 12-0 record the best in Division III in 1983, but the Vikings also ran their regular-season winning streak to 31 games. Augustana hasn't been beaten in a regular-season game since Oct. 18, 1980! Come on, sir, how about a little respect? After all, at how many campuses last fall were the goalposts torn down and planted in the front yard of the star quarterback's house?
