Phil Mickelson comes from six strokes back and puts together an amazing final round to win Pebble Beach (The Meaning of Pebble Beach, Feb. 20). On the other hand Tiger Woods starts four strokes off the lead and then collapses to finish tied for 15th and gets all of the glory in your article. While I too look forward to seeing Woods get back his competitive edge, I think this article should have been totally about Mickelson's win.

If Woods is more at peace now in his career than at any other time over the last decade, I think it's mainly because he finally looked at himself in the mirror and realized that his actions compromised both himself and those around him. Sometimes reality can have a very humbling effect.

Born a Bruin
I really enjoyed your article on Brad Marchand (The Little Ball of Hate, Feb. 20). He is just the latest example of the type of hard-nosed, antagonizing, in-your-face tough guy who has always been part of Bruins hockey. Marchand's style of play reminds me of former Bruins Leo Labine and Terry O'Reilly. When those guys were on the ice, opposing players knew they had to be alert and had to keep their heads up at all times. Marchand brings the same kind of pandemonium and fear to his opponents.
