This week's radio segments (Tony Kornheiser Show, The Gas Man, The Sports Reporters)

This moring I joined Tony Kornheiser for his newest version of The Tony Kornheiser Show at 11:05 ET.  Click the permalink, then the link below, to listen to the segment from this week. Among the topics we discussed were my golf game, some books I've been reading and more relevant topics like Bob Huggins and his broken ribs. Lastly, we discussed Mike Kryzewski and his coaching of USA Basketball and Duke, and finished off with a little talk on Tiger Woods.

John have you given any thought to releasing a compilation book of some of your golf vignettes?

How about:

(a) a working title of "John Feinstein's Golf Stories"

(b) Then, have Part A dedicated to "A Good Walk Spoiled" - with an overview of what the book's purpose was.

(c) Then some of the human interest stories from it.

(d) Repeat with Part B and beyond with "Open", "Caddy for Life", "Q School" and the others - once again, an overview followed by stories.

(e) Story examples: Arnold Palmer's introducing himself to new players on the Tour, Larry Mize playing in the qualifier for the Open Championship, how Steve Stricker met his wife, Scott McCarron being asked about hole #3 by a policeman, and players running into rules violations unwittingly.

I think this book could not only stand on its own - it might rekindle interest in your back catalogue.

If this hasn't cropssed your mind - it should.
