Perspective check

Brandie Burton did not start the LPGA Championship. According to Larry Smich, her father isn't doing well and she withdrew to go be with him. Keep the Burton family in your thoughts.

On another family-related item, Mulligan Stu remembers his days working at the paper and keeping one player's grandmother up to speed on her girl's results.

The picture made me laugh but the story made me cry as my grandmother passed away in March of this year. If not for you finding this story, I would have never known about this. Thanks so much. My grandmother meant the world to me.

I'm so glad you got to read Stu's story. He's such a good writer. I figured a few people would appreciate it, but I never dreamed that you would stumble across my link. I'm very sorry to hear about your grandmother - you obviously meant a lot to her, too.

BTW, I'm not the same Hound Dog who caddies on Tour. You're not the first to assume that. Guess I should have picked another nickname, but what else would an Elvis fan choose?

Be sure to tell Sherri she's still got a lot of fans out here who hope she really isn't retiring after this year.
