An interesting letter to the editor in Saturday's L.A. Times:
After suffering through last weekend's Pebble Beach Pro-Am, I think it's about time they put this little clambake to rest.
Years ago, when actual celebrities showed up, it was novel, and fun. Now with the B-list celebrities and six-hour rounds of hacking, it's like going to the dentist, with the pompous Nick Faldo along as commentator.
The reason I stopped playing golf was because of slow play and too many people on the course with absolutely no idea of how to play the game. Why would anybody want to watch it on TV?
