    having written 2 sports sps myself, I had to check this one out upon learning it made nicholls QF. I really enjoyed it and read it in one sitting. a couple of random notes/thoughts: typos: your use "your" when you mean "you're" a couple of times. Negro's should be Negroes. seemed a little hard to believe they couldn't borrow or rent some clubs for the tournament, although... read

    Thanks Kev! No, they don't tell everyone they just missed. They've told me I REALLY missed a few times..

    50 off, yikes, that's like losing a baseball game 1-0...Keep hammering away, you're a great writer and I enjoy your work.
